Founded in 2012 by Dr. James Smouse, Cherry Log Oral Surgery was established to provide comprehensive oral surgery care to residents in the North Georgia mountains.  This pristine environment provides the perfect setting for focusing on community-based patient care.  Dr. Smouse retired in late 2017, passing the mission of the practice to Dr. John Pritchett to continue well into the future.  

The Cherry Log Oral Surgery team strives to positively influence our community through outstanding personalized service, dedication to education, and providing a comfortable and pleasant surgery experience to everyone we encounter.
