James Cunningham, DMD, General Dentist
Dr. Cunningham was born and raised in Birmingham, AL. He attended The University of Alabama, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. He also completed courses in the biomedical sciences at The University of Alabama at Birmingham after receiving his degree. He then earned his DMD degree from The University of Alabama School of Dentistry in 2018.
After graduating from dental school he started his career with Luma Dentistry. He happily joined the team because of the friendliness of the doctors and staff, and because his career goals matched well with joining the Luma team. He believes that the people of Luma Dentistry promote a dual environment of independence and collaboration that works to continually improve patient care and satisfaction.
Dr. Cunningham strives not only to restore the oral health of his patients, but also to promote continued health through patient education. He believes that empowering patients to understand the basis for good oral health is necessary for the success of dental treatment. Although he enjoys many aspects of caring for the oral health of his patients, he is extremely satisfied by alleviating people’s apprehension about dental treatment. He feels that a trip to the dentist should be a calm and welcoming experience, and he makes this a priority during patient treatment.
Dr. Cunningham is a member of The American Dental Association, The Alabama Dental Association, and The Academy of General Dentistry. He currently lives in Hoover where he enjoys playing with his dog, Leo, playing soccer, and playing guitar in his free time.
