Welcome to the UAB School of Dentistry, Department of Periodontology. We are committed to optimizing the overall health of our patients and the community through superior periodontal care. We aim to do so through our innovative programs in teaching, patient care and research. These efforts are directed by a well-qualified and passionate faculty and supported by a dedicated staff.

The department is dedicated to the overall training of the dental students and the teaching of periodontics and implant dentistry. Our Advanced Education Program in Periodontology offers the students a well versed clinical and didactic experience that prepares them for the study and practice of periodontics in an academic or practice setting. We offer programs including a 3-year certificate and a Master's degree program.

We provide therapy at various levels to a large group of patients. Our dental students learn to diagnose periodontal diseases and treat basic periodontal conditions. In our state-of-the-art facility, our residents provide diverse and comprehensive treatment for periodontal diseases and conditions, and replace missing teeth with dental implants. Our faculty are active participants within the UAB Dental Group and deliver specialty care in periodontics and implant dentistry.

Our research programs focus on clinical and translational research. These include clinical research programs in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases, studies of new regenerative and implant techniques, and studies of the link between periodontal diseases and systemic health.
