Dr. Allie Loflin
What do you want patients to say about their experience with you?
I would love for my patients to say that I truly listened to their needs and helped them to make the best decision in regards to their dental care. I want my patients to appreciate me as a dentist but even more so as a member of their community, someone they can trust and go to for problems.
If you were to share one piece of dental advice, what would it be?
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I love doing restorative dentistry and performing extractions, but nothing makes me happier than informing my patients when they have a clean bill of health.
What charity or organization are you most passionate about supporting?
My husband and I can’t wait to get more involved in the World Pediatric Project. We have attended multiple events for this organization and have fallen in love with the care they are able to provide to those with craniofacial conditions in lesser developed countries.
How do you stay up to date on the latest dental techniques?
I enjoy going to regional and national meetings where leaders of our profession share their techniques and years of experience. I love the camaraderie I share with my colleagues and friends at these meetings. They are both educational and motivational. I have learned many new techniques and modern treatments through attendance at these events.
If you weren’t a dentist, what would you do?
If I weren’t a dentist, I would want to open a dog shelter for rescue and service dogs. I believe that dogs have the ability to love you unconditionally, teach you patience, and share many life lessons, such as friendship and loyalty. My husband and I love our two labs, Sampson and Spruel.
