Our History

A dental practice established by your friends and neighbors

Birmingham brothers Drs. Ted and John Poczatek, both graduates of UAB School of Dentistry, opened their first dental practice in 2005. Their vision was to create a practice that would benefit the community and the patients.

The brothers were joined in 2007 by Dr. Holt Gray, a good friend and a specialist in dental restoration procedures (prosthodontist), and a Resident Professor at UAB School of Dentistry. The practice grew again in 2009 with the addition of Dr. John’s wife, Dr. Wendy, who is also a UAB School of Dentistry graduate.

In 2018, the team combined their three locations, McCalla Dental, Cahaba Dental, and Southlake Dental to form Luma Dentistry. Today, the practice continues to grow and now includes over a dozen doctors at several convenient locations across central Alabama.
