Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
The summer before she was set to attend Texas A&M, Dr. Allison worked for a local dentist in Shamrock (her hometown) as his receptionist and dental assistant. This experience was definitely life-changing – it made her fall in love with dentistry! When she started college that fall, her mind was made up on becoming a dentist herself. All these years later, she still feels confident that it was the right choice.
Where Did You Study
After completing her undergraduate degree at Texas A&M, Dr. Allison pursued her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. Following graduation, she has completed countless continuing education classes and programs in order to keep up to date with the latest technology and provide her patients with the best care possible. Some of the specialty topics she’s studied include Invisalign, endodontics, implant dentistry, and sedation dentistry.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Allison is married to Derek, who’s also from her hometown. They have two children together – a daughter named Hannah and a son named Connor. When she isn’t busy helping smiles shine, her favorite hobbies include walking/running outside, spending quality time and playing games with her family, and traveling.
