New Office in Hoover Expands Availability of Pediatric Dental and Orthodontic Care

HOOVER, Ala., JUNE 2, 2022 – Pediatric Dental Associates, the premiere providers of pediatric health services in Alabama, today announced it has opened its sixth location and second in Hoover.

Led by Drs. Baker Chambliss and Ben Samuelson, the mission of Pediatric Dental Associates is to provide optimal dental health care to infants, children, and adolescents in a hospitable atmosphere that focuses on the overall well-being of the child and with the understanding that God designs all children with a specific purpose in mind. Pediatric Dental Associates Hoover will join the organization’s five other locations throughout Alabama to increase access and convenience for families seeking pediatric dental and orthodontic care for their children.

The five other locations include:

  • Pediatric Dental Associates Birmingham
  • Pediatric Dental Associates & Cullman Orthodontics
  • Pediatric Dental Associates & Orthodontics Medplex
  • Pediatric Dental Associates Oxford
  • Pediatric Dental Associates Pell City

“As a city, Hoover has recently seen significant growth, and our hope is that the availability of high-quality dental care will better serve the community’s needs as it continues to flourish,” said Dr. Baker Chambliss, Partner, Pediatric Dental Associates. “Both Dr. Samuelson and I have had offices in Hoover for many years and are extremely grateful we can further support this city with an additional location.”

Dr. Sean Gunnels, board certified in pediatric dentistry, will see patients at Pediatric Dental Associates Hoover on Mondays – Thursdays in addition to those he sees at his practice, Summit Smiles.

Initially, patients will be seen inside Samuelson Orthodontics at 5336 Stadium Trace Parkway #112 in Hoover, while Drs. Chambliss and Samuelson begin construction on a new building at The Grove across from the Target shopping center.  The new state-of-the-art facility is scheduled to open in the spring of 2023.

“We are thrilled Dr. Gunnels has decided to join our team. When dentists and orthodontists work together as a dual specialty practice, communication and collaboration naturally improve outcomes because we work in tandem to align the teeth and jaws and reinforce the importance of good oral health habits from childhood to adolescence,” said Dr. Samuelson.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Gunnels at Pediatric Dental Associates Hoover, please call 205-795-3440.
