“Modern dentistry can be life-changing. It is a constantly advancing field, with each new technology, technique, and material providing additional options, a more comfortable experience, and stable, lasting, beautiful results.
“Our slogan is: A healthy smile, A beautiful you. A smile shouldn’t just be beautiful; a smile should be a symbol of health for years to come.
“I am extremely passionate about smile makeovers. The term is broad and is used to describe so much of what I am able to provide my patients. Sometimes a smile makeover means veneers; other times it means custom dentures. My passion is creating the best smile for each individual while ensuring optimum dental health and long-term maintenance.
“I am honored, as a prosthodontist, to be a member of a specialty that has vowed to be at the forefront of technology and quality. Being able to offer my skills, insights, and services to my patients, and in doing so helping to transform their lives, brings me the greatest joy.”

As a prosthodontist, I lead that team during the plan.” – Dr. Allen
