Dr. Allen, a native Athenian, graduated from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1969 with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery and was elected to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon honor society. After three years in the U.S. Air Force he returned to Emory, earning a Certificate of Orthodontics in 1974. He then opened his practice in Athens.
In 2002 Dr. Allen and Dr. Waugh merged their offices. While Dr. Allen is retired, he might occasionally be seen around, so thank him for the service he provided for us all for more than 40 years!
