The Team

Mike Allen

Mike Allen - Principal Dentist

I am the practice owner and I qualified at Birmingham Dental Hospital in 1981.  I first went into practice in Halesowen, but I have been working in Burton on Trent for the last twenty five years, twenty of these in my own practice.

As well as general dentistry, I have a special interest in implants and orthodontics and I work one session a week in the Queen's Hospital in Burton on Trent, carrying out orthodontic procedures.  I am also a member of the Association of Dental Implantology and I regularly place dental implants for patients, which in some cases can take the place of a bridge or a partial denture.  I regularly travel to the United States to attend additional courses at the Pankey Institute (see weblink below), which is one of the most renowned dental teaching centres in the world and where I can continue to study my other areas of interest including tooth grinding and jaw joint disorders.

Outside of work, I have a growing family who keep me very busy.  I am also a keen squash player, cyclist and used to be an enthusiastic sailor.

I am registered to practice with the General Dental Council and my registration number is 55931.
