Growing up, Dr. Wendy AuClair Clark saw first-hand the impact that a team of dental specialists (orthodontics, oral surgery, and prosthodontics) had on changing her younger brother's life and his smile. Wanting to help people and make that same impact, she chose a career as a dental specialist.

After dental school, Dr. Wendy AuClair completed a three-year residency in prosthodontics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), where she was selected as Chief Resident her senior year and completed additional research and coursework to earn a Masters of Science in Clinical Dentistry.
