Volunteering is just second nature to Dr. Bradberry. He has given his time at the Good Samaritan of Cobb Dental Clinic, Christina's Smile, the Cobb County Dental Assistance Program in the states. Most recently, Dr. Bradberry could be found in Augusta, Georgia for the Georgia Mission of Mercy, providing dental care along with many dedicated Georgia Dentists providing needed dental care for those who might not otherwise receive care. Overseas, Dr Bradberry volunteers and supports the work done by Extreme Response where he provides needed dental care to children in Ecuador. He enjoys and looks forward to mission trips, working together with family and friends. Fridays are always busy for Dr. Bradberry although not in the office! He has stayed busy with many opportunities from teaching with the dental school in Augusta, Ga., volunteering, meeting with GDA staff and legislators, or performing special needs cases requiring anesthesia, in hospital.
Dr. Bradberry has been happily married for 40 years to his wife, Janet, who is a Licensed Master Social Worker. Janet received her Master's degree at the University of Georgia where she was introduced to "David" ....the rest is history! Dr. and Mrs. Bradberry have one son, Jonathan Taylor Bradberry. "Jon" graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in animal science. GO DAWGS! ( since Dr. B is a Georgia Tech grad, Thanksgiving football is always interesting at their house!!).
Following in his dad's footsteps somewhat, Jon received (not a dental) but his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia and completed his residency at the Carillion Memorial Hospital in Roanoke, Virginia. We are so blessed to announce, that in August of 2019 Jonathan married his best friend and fellow motorcycle and adrenaline junkie, Sarah. (She's a nurse...so it comes naturally). She is a great wife to Jon and a great "daughter in "love" to the Bradberry's. Jonathan and Sarah now live in Florence, Alabama where Jonathan began as an internal medicine hospitalist and most recently joined Florence Medical Associates, to begin his private practice. He is enjoying the change from seeing patients in hospital, to seeing patients in the office! They have one beautiful two year old daugther and a sweet two month old son! The two grandchildren are the apples of Dr. Bradberry's eyes!
The Bradberry's visit Jon, Sarah, Olivia and Andrew as often as possible but always love getting back to East Cobb to work with the best kids in the world! Dr. Bradberry loves quail hunting, fly fishing, wildlife photography, dabbling in cow farming and taking part in almost anything outdoors. Dr. and Mrs. Bradberry often drive to the mountains to get away from the city and enjoy hiking and observing nature. You can always find Dr. Bradberry with history books too! Especially Civil War History.
If you know Dr. B, you can see why the children are so comfortable around him with his easy going demeanor! He loves to answer questions from dental patients and families to help promote great dental health so ask away!
