Dr. Allen received her dental degree from the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California. She is a strong believer that education does not stop at the degree, it’s a life-long pursuit. She studies state-of-the-art dental technologies and techniques, always learning and growing as a practitioner.
Dr. Allen is known amongst her peers for her attention to detail, knack for aesthetic, and eye for design. Having grown up in Laguna Beach, Dr. Allen knows what it’s like to be in a relaxing atmosphere—she tries to bring that same sense of calm into her practice. Because of her reputation for precision and integrity, patients know they are in good hands under Dr. Allen’s care.
As a relatively new resident of St. Louis, Dr. Allen loves exploring the multi-cultural pockets of the city, discovering new restaurants and hidden parks along the way. She also loves going to Cards games, cooking Thai food with her fiancé, and walking their dog, Paddington.
Dr. Allen is excited to join the Kraner Dental Family team and cannot wait to make you smile a little brighter!
