For Dr. Steven H. Pratt, "home" has always been Atlanta, Texas. He graduated in 1973 from Atlanta High School, where he participated in athletics, was a member of the National Honor Society, and served as president of the Science Club. Also active in the Boy Scouts of America, Dr. Pratt was only thirteen when he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. In 1977 he was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. During his high school and college years, his summers were spent in the Boundary Waters area of northern Minnesota and southern Ontario, where he guided canoe trips. It was at The University of Texas Health Science Center Dental School in San Antonio that Dr. Pratt discovered and developed his passion for implant dentistry and oral surgery. He graduated in 1981 and was licensed to practice on June 10 of that year. Dr. Pratt moved back to Atlanta following his graduation from dental school and became an associate of Michael Thurman, D.D.S. Dr. Thurman encouraged Dr. Pratt's thirst for knowledge, and stressed the importance of continuing education in order to stay current with the ever-evolving science of dentistry. In 1983 Dr. Pratt opened his office at its current location. He founded Atlanta General and Implant Dentistry five years later. Dr. Pratt holds fellowships in the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and the International College of Dentists. He is a member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, Texas Dental Association, Texas First District Dental Society, ArkLaTex Academy of Dentistry, Southwestern Society of Pediatric Dentistry, and the American Orthodontic Society. He has attended six World Symposiums of Dental Implants in five foreign countries. Dr. Pratt has logged over 2,400 hours of continuing education since graduating from dental school, with 800 of those hours in the field of dental implants. His work in this field has been published nationally, and he frequently addresses groups of dentists on the subject of dental implants. Much of Dr. Pratt's time out of the office is spent in the great outdoors. Among his favorite recreational activities are biking, running, and hiking mountain trails with his wife, Nora. He and Nora are also very active in their church. Dr. Pratt is available to speak to civic clubs and other organizations on various topics related to dentistry and oral health.
