Michael Reddy, DMD, DMSc
Dr. Reddy is Professor and Chairman of the Department of Periodontology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry. Dr. Reddy is a 1981 graduate of the University of Hartford. He attended the Harvard School of Dental Medicine where he earned his DMD degree in 1986, and Certificate of Periodontology and Doctorate of Medical Sciences Degree in Oral Biology in 1989.
He is a Diplomat of the American Board of Periodontology and the recipient of the Clinical Research Award from the American Academy of Periodontology. He has published more than 200 scientific manuscripts and abstracts and has been the recipient of numerous research grants. He is actively involved as a scientist in the UAB Center for Aging and the UAB Center for Metabolic Bone Disease and the Periodontal Research Clinic. Dr. Reddy has lectured extensively on implant placement and restorative topics. Dr. Reddy’s clinical interests include bone grafting, implant placement and esthetics of implants. In addition, his research has also focused on the understanding of the pathogenesis of periodontal diseases through the modeling of clinical disease progression. The focus has been the understanding of the pattern of alveolar bone loss and its potential mechanistic association with osteoporosis.
His laboratory also works on development and evaluation of regenerative medicine and biomimetic therapeutic approaches to guided bone regeneration for periodontal disease, dental implants and oral bone loss. A major emphasis has been development of diagnostic systems to evaluate bone resorption. These diagnostics are currently being applied to the development and testing of dental implants and surgical techniques aimed at the regeneration of bone.
