While in dental school at UAB, Dr. Trammell worked on a clinical research project with the department of periodontology. It was during this experience that he decided to pursue periodontics as a specialty. He successfully completed dual certification during his residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry Department of Periodontology from 2011-2014 and the Veteran Affairs Hospital in Birmingham from 2011-2014. He was Chief Resident from 2013-2014. Dr. Trammell's advanced training and clinical emphasis of work includes dental implants, treatment of periodontal disease, bone regeneration, soft tissue grafting and crown lengthening for esthetics or function.
Dr. Trammell is a member of the American Dental Association, the Alabama Dental Association, the American Academy of Periodontology, the Academy of Osseointegration, the Alabama Society of Periodontists and the Second District Dental Society. He currently serves on the board of trustees of the Alabama Dental Association, is a member of the executive committee of the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry Alumni Association, and is the past-president of both the Alabama Society of Periodontists and the Second District Dental Society. Dr. Trammell is the director of the River Region Study Club (a local chapter of the nationally renowned Seattle Study Club). He and his wife Ashley have two daughters, Emerson and Collins. Together they enjoy going to the lake, waterskiing, traveling, Auburn football and spending time outside with Tucker, their soft-coated wheaten terrier. They are active members of Trinity Presbyterian Church.
Dr. Trammell has achieved certification as a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. This honor is accomplished by successfully meeting the educational and examination standards that encompass all phases of periodontics, including dental implants. It is the highest level of recognition that a specialist can attain in the field of periodontology, and less than one-third of all periodontists hold this distinction.
