Dr. Leverett's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Leverett "Dr. Leverett began his "scientific studies" at the tender age of nine. He is the product of two school teachers- his father, a football coach, and his mother a librarian. Both retired after forty years in the public school system. He childhood was deeply steeped in a learning environment. Living in rural Alabama, and being an avid outdoors man, "Doc" had the opportunity to develop a fascination of biology, and the natural sciences in a natural pristine environment. He converted his bedroom into a laboratory. Chemistry sets, microscopes, a dissection table, physics experiments, and aquariums with various plant and animal life were his toys. He asked that his parents keep containers in their cars in the event a dead animal (intact) could be collected for dissection purposes (his dissection lab was in a outdoor utility building for obvious reasons). He took taxidermy courses to hone his dissection skills. Dr. Leverett graduated from Mobile Christian High School, having success in both football as well as academics. After being subjected to years of pounding in football, Doc converted his energies into his studies. During his undergraduate years as a part-time job he was a jeweler/goldsmith for Zundel's Jewelry and Lorch's Jewelry in Mobile, Alabama. He graduated from the University of Mobile with a Bachelor's degree in animal biology with a concentration in human anatomy and physiology. He holds minor degrees in chemistry, psychology, and ancient history. Dr. Leverett then entered the University of Alabama School of Dentistry, where he was held captive for four years. There Doc received his degree of Doctor of Medical Dentistry. Between school terms he was a chemist co-op intern in the analytical and quality control laboratory of Ciba-Geigy in McIntosh, Alabama, and was involved in a research study for 3-M dental Japan. Doc spent his last summer before graduation in the department of Oral Surgery at the dental school. Upon graduation he was employed as a staff dentist for six and one-half years at the Mobile County Health Department earning his stripes and becoming seasoned in the dental arts. Dr. Leverett entered into private practice in Elberta, Alabama where he has been since 1997. Dr. Leverett maintains his post graduate studies concentrating in restorative, cosmetic, prosthodontics, oral surgery, and family dentistry. He strives to maintain a comfortable, stress free environment at Elberta Dental. The most important concept in his practice is the patient's comfort. Outside the dental office, Dr. Leverett enjoys, kayaking, the shooting sports, trout fishing, deer and turkey hunting with his wife and their two children."

Patient Comments (1)

I have been going to him for several years. I went to a oral surgeon he recommended and got 3 implants. After the healing time Dr Leverett put the crowns on them with questionable adhesive. I have had many problems with these new teeth popping out and having to return to have them re-attached, just...more

We are sorry to know you are not happy with your final product! As recommended by the ADA we use a cement for implants. This is in the event that your implant must be adjusted. It is not a permanent cement as with crowns. Implants are an amazing option that we have been doing for a while now. Our front office is sorry for the miscommunication as well. Our staff is excellent at appointing patients but occasionally miscommunication happens. We regret this happened. Thank you, Elberta Dental
