Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
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!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
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 is currently a member of the following dental organizations:
American Dental Association
Alabama Dental Association
Academy of General Dentistry
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
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 Corp in Washington, DC! He’s also done seven 70.3 Ironman distance triathlons and one 140.6 Ironman distance triathlon.
