Allison E. Tomlin, DMD, MS
Transforming Lives through Smiles
Dr. Allison Tomlin is very passionate about orthodontic dentistry and the quality of care for her patients. Each of her patients is extremely important to her. They present a unique puzzle to be solved: how to make their teeth and face balance in the most attractive and functional manner? She must call on her knowledge of science, medicine, and art, along with psychology, to help patients achieve their “Absolute Best Smile.”
The best part of her work is when she shows a patient their “Before” photos and then their “New Smile.” The look of joy, amazement, and pride on their faces is something that continues to delight. This is especially true for those patients who have had a dramatic improvement in appearance and function. It’s a blessing to know there are so many people who have benefited from the care she has provided, who now have a lifetime of beautiful, healthy, and confident smiles.
