ATTENTION PATIENTS: Mask Requirement and Screening

Although the Alabama statewide mask mandate expired April 9, the City of Birmingham approved an extended mask mandate through May 24. If you have an upcoming appointment, please know that all patients and caregivers are required to wear a mask or face covering inside the School of Dentistry facility. These can be cloth masks or commercially made masks.

Warning! Face coverings should not be worn by:

  • Children under the age of two.
  • People who have trouble breathing.
  • Anyone unable to remove the face covering without help.

If one of the above reasons is applicable, please call 205-934-3077 prior to your appointment.

We are also conducting advance and onsite symptomatic screening, including a temperature check, for all patients and caregivers entering the School of Dentistry. Patients should enter the building through the front (atrium) entrance on 7th Avenue S. in order to be screened.

Please view this COVID-19 Patient Alert for more information on preparing for your appointment.

Gum Disease, Implants

4th Floor

We provide evaluation, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal diseases of the gums and bone surrounding the teeth and the replacement of teeth with dental implants. Your treatment can be provided in either our UAB dental group practice or in the post graduate Periodontics clinic.

If care is provided within the UAB Dentistry group practice you will be treated by Faculty periodontists in a modern, friendly environment. Our faculty are active participants within the UAB Dental Group and deliver specialty care in periodontics and implant dentistry. The UAB Dental Group is an interdisciplinary clinic providing care for all your dental needs.

In the Postdoctoral Periodontal clinic, you will be treated by a dentist who is studying for an additional three years after dental school to become a periodontist. We provide treatment for gum diseases, missing teeth with dental implants, recession of the gum tissues, gummy smiles, and other cosmetic problems. We use state-of-the-art technology like three-dimensional scanners and x-rays to plan our surgeries and work to ensure optimal results.
