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 thirty years, twenty five years 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. In the past, I did travel regularly to the United States to attend additional courses at the Pankey Institute, which is one of the most renowned dental teaching centres in the world. Now I can continue with 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 cyclist and used to be an enthusiastic sailor and squash player.

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

I have 2 fantastic children who keep me very busy and an overactive cocker spaniel!   I have a keen interest in black and white film photography, and hope to continue to study this at a higher level.

I started my career in Dentistry in 2010 working as a Dental Nurse in Nottingham. I then went on to pursue my career goal and after spending 2 years living in London working towards my Diploma in Dental Hygiene, I graduated from London's Eastman Dental Hospital back in June 2015. Alongside my Diploma, I also achieved the Carol Chiver's Memorial Award for excellence in patient care and communication. Since graduating I have moved back to Nottingham, however I do still enjoy visiting London whenever I can.
