Dr. Grant Skalnik is a different kind of dentist. He is compassionate, gentle and caring. He believes in conservative, preventative dentistry and his goal is to increase the longevity of his patient’s teeth.
Dr. Grant Skalnik earned his Bachelors of Science Degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1997. He then attended dental school, graduating from University of Alabama School of Dentistry in 2001 where he received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine. Dr. Skalnik completed a year-long intensive implant residency at The Foundry Dental Center in 2013. Dr. Skalnik brings his knowledge of the latest in dental technology to his practice including veneers, oral surgery, implant placement and restoration.
He grew up in Dora, Alabama and graduated from Dora High School. Dr. Skalnik played basketball, baseball and football. Dentistry was a natural fit because he is very detailed oriented and always wanted to work in a field that not only helped people but one that would allow him to truly get to know the individuals that he is serving.
Dr. Skalnik lives in Tuscaloosa with his wife, Angel, and their sons, Eli and Ethan. They are members of Valley View Baptist Church. When away from the office, Dr. Skalnik spends his free time doing just about anything that his two boys want him to do from baseball, bikes, the zoo or beach getaways (this may be more for Angel). Even though his family takes priority of most of his spare time, he manages to fit in some hunting and golf. Dr. Skalnik is an avid Alabama football fan and keeps up to date with all things Tide. If he were not a dentist, he’d be an announcer for Bama football! Watch out Eli Gold!!
As an upstanding member of the community, the American and Alabama Dental Associations, UAB School of Dentistry Alumni Association and our local 6th district, you can expect only the best quality care from him. Dr. Skalnik is committed to continuing education not only for himself but for his entire team. They attend seminars and hands on trainings annually.
Dr. Skalnik’s passion for dentistry and eagerness to provide his patients with superior dental care shines through his work every day. He has been blessed enough to help thousands of patients achieve a healthy, beautiful smile, and he hopes to continue doing so for years to come.
