Meet Our Team Andy Gilbert, DMD

Dr William (Andy) Gilbert received a Bachelor’s in General Studies from Southeast MO State University in Cape Girardeau, MO. He joined the Army as an enlisted soldier as a Pharmacy Technician where he became exposed to the many different fields of medicine and dentistry. While remaining in the National Guard, Dr Gilbert returned to his Alma Mater for undergraduate studies and then attended Dental School at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine where he earned a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD). He returned to active duty in the Army where he completed the US Army Advanced Education in Periodontics Residency Program at Ft Gordon, GA. Dr Gilbert then achieved his board certification from the American Board of Periodontology. His next 2 assignments involved teaching Periodontics at two of the US Army Advanced Education in General Dentistry 2-year (AEGD-2) programs in Hawaii and Ft Bragg, NC. He remains on active duty where he is serving as the Officer in Charge of one of the larger dental clinics on JBLM.

Dr Gilbert has spent most of his military career in education and he carries that over into his practice. He enjoys all aspects of Periodontal Therapy from treating periodontal disease to soft and hard tissue augmentation to dental implants and, most recently, laser surgery. He believes that having patients truly understand their condition(s) and their treatment options is of paramount importance for successful outcomes.

Dr Gilbert and his wife, Lucy, have 3 daughters and 5 dogs. He enjoys biking and triathlons and loves the local mountain trails. Following his current commitment, and after 28 years of military service, he plans to retire in the local area and make Premier Periodontics his new practice home.
