After receiving his bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from the University of Georgia, he attended the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry in Augusta, where he received his D.M.D. degree. After dental school, he moved to Oklahoma City to attend the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center for his post-doctoral training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. During his residency, Dr. Meaders spent time in Johannesburg, South Africa obtaining additional training in orthognathic surgery at the Carstenhof Clinic and the University of Witswatersrand. Dr. Meaders moved back to Atlanta in 1997 to join our group and practices in the Cumming and John's Creek offices. Dr. Meaders is Board Certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and is a Member / Fellow American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Georgia Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, Northwestern District Dental Society, Northern District Dental Society, and the Hinman Dental Society.

Dr. Meaders is a Fellow of the American Society of Implant & Reconstructive Dentistry (ASIRD). ASIRD is committed to improving the quality of care for dental implant patients by elevating the standards of surgical and restorative dental education and practice. Not every dentist routinely restores and maintains dental implants and not all placers of dental implants are surgeons. By using an ASIRD team, rest assured that your dentist routinely restores and maintains dental implants and only a trained surgeon will place your implant. Learn more about ASIRD. Dr. Meaders' clinical interests include orthognathic and reconstructive jaw surgery, dental implants, the surgical management of impacted teeth, hard and soft tissue pathology, facial trauma and anesthesia. Dr. Meaders practices out of the Cumming office and Johns Creek office in Suwanee.
