Dr. Wes Samford, DMD

Gentle Dentist in Mountain Brook, AL

Mountain Brook Smiles

Born in Opelika, I have always lived in Alabama. I've been privileged to take care of my patients' dental health in Birmingham for over 40 years. During that time, I have shared my knowledge and experience as a lecturer, and consulted with other dentists on ways to provide the best in dental care. I also have enjoyed teaching at UAB Dental School.
My father was a physician, and I always knew I wanted to be in the health field. The exciting changes and challenges in dentistry helped me decide on dentistry as my profession. After receiving a Bachelor's degree from
Auburn University, I earned my dental degree at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.

I was honored to be selected as one of America's Top Dentists by the Consumer's Research Council of America. I am a member of the 
American Dental Association, Alabama Dental Association and Birmingham District Dental Society.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy  exercising, water skiing, and traveling. I am happily married to the former, Joy Burttram.  I have two sons James and Christopher. My oldest, James, is a dentist and his wife, Abnous, is an optometrist. Together they have two beautiful children, Cameron and Winn. My youngest son, Christopher, is a mechanical engineer and is married to Shawna whose field is in Human Resources.They have a beautiful daughter, MacKenzie.  I am very proud of all them and pleased that they all live here in Birmingham.
