Dr. Redmond has been helping patients and families smile brighter here in the Sylacauga community for over 25 years so far – and he looks forward to many more! He has a true love of working directly with others and is always striving to keep his dental office modern with the latest tools and technologies, so his patients receive the highest quality care imaginable. Dr. Redmond was actually pretty young when he first thought about becoming a dentist for his career. In his childhood, he had family members on both sides who were dentists. While he didn’t grow up around the work, it was definitely in his blood right away. In fact, he even saved his baby teeth – when he officially joined the field, he took a much closer look at them! In college, he volunteered at the dental school at Florida, and that eye-opening experience convinced him that this was 100% the right path he should follow. All these years later, and he hasn’t looked back! After attending the University of Florida for his undergraduate degree, Dr. Redmond pursued his doctorate at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He also attended a residency at Washington Dental School Hospital and recently completed a Comprehensive Implant Residency Program in Birmingham as well! He then bought his uncle’s practice in Sylacauga and came to make his home here. He is currently a member of the following dental organizations:
American Dental Association
Alabama Dental Association
Academy of General Dentistry
Dr. Redmond is happily married to his wife Joany; he has a son named Jake and two stepchildren named Jared and Emily, all of whom are grown. When he isn’t busy at the dental office, he usually spends his free time fishing and running. He loves doing triathlons and endurance sports in particular. So far, he’s completed approximately 15 marathons, including Boston, Chicago, New York, and the Marine Corps in Washington, DC! He’s also done seven 70.3 Ironman distance triathlons and one 140.6 Ironman distance triathlon.
Before & After
QReplace Missing Teeth: Single or Multiple
Replacing a single tooth with a single tooth implant does not endanger the health of the neighboring teeth. Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. Several missing teeth can also be replaced with individual implants. This method will place a dental implant at the site of each missing tooth, providing ideal replicas of your lost teeth. Multiple teeth may also be restored with an implant bridge, which is a prosthetic comprised of three or more crown units, depending upon the number of missing teeth.
QStabilizing Loose Full Dentures and Partial Dentures
One of the most rewarding and exciting new procedures in dentistry today is the system for making your previously loose dentures tight and comfortable. Mini dental implants provide denture patients with the ability to eat, smile, and speak with confidence. In as little as 1 hour, 4-6 dental implants can be placed, and your dentures can be fitted over the implants. The patient leaves the office with a stable denture, which can be used IMMEDIATELY. In addition, placement of these implants results in little to no post-operative discomfort. Many patients who were not candidates for conventional implants because they didn’t have enough bone or because of finances are now mini dental implant candidates.
QSemi Removable Bridge
Made of Hybrid Resin or Zirconia, the removable bridge involves the placement of between 6-10 implants, determined by bone volume and bone quality. This is a fixed hybrid bridge that can be detached by the dentist as needed at recall cleaning visits.
