About Your Dentist

Emily Allen, DDS

"You're never fully dressed without a smile."



"Making the world a better place, one smile at a time."



"I once had one of my denture-wearing patients tell me, 'Be true to your teeth, or they'll be false to you.' It made me giggle, and it logically makes sense."



My Mission

"It is my mission to exceed expectations by providing exceptional dental care to my patients and, at the same time, building relationships of trust with them. Upon building that initial rapport with patients, it's important to educate them in a way that fosters understanding. I have passion for dentistry and compassion for my patients. I strive every day to provide the absolute best dental care. Greatness does not happen overnight, it is earned through a lifetime of education, dedication, and hard work. I am committed to becoming the finest dentist I can possibly be through my successes and failures. There's something new to be learned each day."
