Meet Dr. Bye

Periodontist in Hagerstown

Dr. Fred L. Bye Periodontics | Hagerstown, MDHello! I am Dr. Fred Bye, a dentist in specializing in Periodontics and Dental Implantology.

I established The Bye Center for Implants and Periodontics in Hagerstown, MD in 1992 and more recently opened The Bye Center for Implants and Periodontics in Chambersburg, PA.

I received my undergraduate, BS degree from Michigan State University and my DDS and specialty (MS) degrees from The University of Michigan. As a Major in the Sir Force, I served as Chief of Periodontics at Shaw AFB Regional Hospital, Shaw AFB, SC. Immediately prior to moving to Maryland, I was a Professor at The University of Michigan, School of Dentistry, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

At The Bye Centers, I provide advanced treatment for all types of  periodontal disease as well as esthetic analysis and associated periodontal “plastic” surgery procedures. In addition, we offer 3-dimensional imaging (CT scan) for safe, accurate and predictable treatment planning most often in association with the placement of individual dental implants or even multiple dental implants to replace all teeth when necessary, I have tree wonderful children, all are in college. We enjoy our annual trip to Alaska where I blend continuing education courses for dentists and their teams with sight-seeing and salmon fishing with my family.

In recognition of my periodontal and implant expertise, I am a Board-Certified  Diplomate of both The American Board of Periodontology and The International Congress of Oral Implantologists.  I have numerous publication and have lectures both nationally and internationally. In 2010, I founded a Dental Implant Study Club and provide dental implant continuing education courses for interested dentists in the tri-state area. In 2015, I established the Dental Hygiene Forum as an educational format for local hygienists to receive up to date information on topics they feel relevant to their providing optimal care for their patients.

Thank you for allowing me to introduce myself.

I would love to meet with you and work with your general dentist in providing you with treatment options if you have “gum disease”, esthetic concerns, or missing teeth/loose dentures and are considering implants.

Patient Review By Colleen M

The staff are all amazing. They are so friendly and helpful. Dr. Bye is also wonderful. He even called me in the evening after my procedure to see how I was doing. This was the first time any doctor had ever followed up with me to see how I was doing. He truly cares about his patients.

Patient Review By Michelle W

This was my first implant and when I heard the whole process was a year, I was doubtful. I had been to someone else for consultation and it didn't feel right so I didn't go back. Then I seen an ad in the newspaper about Dr. Bye having an implant seminar so I went, after that I was convinced and confident in him and his staff to walk me through the procedure. I just finished the whole process and I'm so glad I went to Dr. Bye's office. I'm very satisfied with the implant and the procedure didn't go as bad as I anticipated - the implant looks and feels great! I was really impressed that Dr. Bye gives his patients his cell phone number if you have any problems or questions along the way, not many doctors do that! He even called and checked on me after each surgery to make sure I was doing ok. Dana was amazing also, she was very friendly and professional. I will definitely go back when in need of dental repair. My husband is now going to Dr. Bye after witnessing my experience.

Patient Review By Sheron W

I broke a front tooth and was mortified. My dentist took a mold and had a "flipper", a temporary partial, made for me. It was so uncomfortable, I realized I couldn't tolerate a partial for the rest of my life. I also vetoed a bridge. Why destroy good teeth to fix my broken one? For those two reasons, I decided to get a dental implant. My dentist referred me to Dr. Bye and I was comfortable with him from the beginning. He had a very calming effect and I had complete confidence in him from the beginning. An implant is not a quick fix. It is a long process from beginning to end but the final results are amazing. When I smile, no one knows which tooth was replaced. I've had people guess the wrong tooth! I highly recommend implants and especially Dr. Bye.

Patient Review By Martin K

The Bye Center, and all the staff, are top-flight and first-rate. If you need a dental implant, and have had a lifelong fear of dentists, dental work, and dental pain...this is the place for you to go to, as it was for me. It's a long process, but everyone at the Bye Center makes it easy and almost totally pain-free. I'm near the end of the process, and I've experienced only very minimal pain and only briefly. Everyone there is very friendly, professional, and efficient. They will set you at ease immediately and make the process very easy for you. Quite simply, you can't beat this place.
