Dr. McCracken has roots in Beersheba Springs, where he spent time on his grandparents’ farm as a child. He has spread his talent far and wide and now serves as a part-time professor at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry and part-time as the Executive Director of the Foundry Dental Center. In addition to his dental degree from the University of North Carolina, he has a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering at UAB for research related to growth factors and healing of implants in compromised hosts. He later received his Masters in Public Health in Epidemiology. He is one of only 8 board-certified prosthodontists in Alabama.
We welcome Dr. McCracken, his exceptional skills, congenial bedside manner, and humble nature to our dental cottage. Beginning in July 2021, he will bring dental residents from UAB to enrich their skills and experience in rural, non-profit dentistry while working with our patients. We’re grateful to have his passion for serving others with us at the clinic.
