About Wayne A. Aldredge
With patient comfort at the core of his practice, Dr. Wayne Aldredge uses the newest minimally invasive dental techniques to treat gum disease and place dental implants. Those include LANAP® laser surgery, the S.M.A.R.T.™ bone grafting technique, and Pinhole® gum grafting. “We try to keep things as comfortable as possible for patients,” he says.
A board-certified periodontist and past president of the American Academy of Periodontology, Dr. Aldredge works to bring innovative procedures to patients and to emphasize how periodontal treatment can change lives. He regularly explains the basics of dental implants and periodontal disease and answers questions at his Dental Patient Education Center. He also educates colleagues, efforts that have included speaking on bone grafting for dental implant placements to the Japanese Society of Periodontology. Dr. Aldredge was honored to receive a Distinguished Services award from the American Academy of Periodontology in 2020.
His initial experience as an Army dentist at West Point equipped Dr. Aldredge to understand the restorative side of dentistry. His individualized treatment and commitment to patient comfort have earned him the confidence and the trust of patients and dentists alike. “Our goal is to save teeth when possible, and replace teeth with dental implants when necessary,” he says.
