About Alex Bankhead

A practitioner with Utah Valley Periodontics in Orem, Utah, since 1997, Dr. Alex Bankhead offers patients experienced gum disease treatment. He also places dental implants, which meet the needs of patients who have lost one or more teeth and require a natural, aesthetically pleasing replacement. Dr. Alex Bankhead recommends implants as a long-term solution with virtually the same strength as natural teeth. Implants are effective in increasing dentures’ stability and retention.

Dr. Bankhead completed his doctor of dental surgery at the Creighton University School of Dentistry and served as dental class president for four years. He subsequently completed graduate studies at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and earned qualifications in periodontics. Dr. Bankhead undertook thesis work on human bone regeneration; the research team he was a member of found pioneering histological evidence and data on the timing of bone regeneration within the mouth. Dr. Alex Bankhead is Pinnacle Dental Study Club cofounder and has appeared as a guest on the Wellness Channel.
