Dr. David Allen and Dr. Doug Allen are twin brothers and have been practicing state of the art dentistry for over 20 years. They are natives of Quincy, IL and graduated from QHS in 1983. They graduated from Quincy University in 1986 and from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 1990. They hold B.S. degrees in both biology and chemistry and the degree of D.M.D. (Doctor of Dental Medicine).
The Drs Allen take a heavy load of CE (continuing education), [four to five times the required amount per year] to keep their knowledge and skills, and therefore their dental practice, state of the art. They have amassed over 1000 CE hours in the area of orthodontics and TMJ treatment alone. They are certified senior instructors with the International Association for Orthodontics (IAO), the largest organization in the world for general dentists doing orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Dave and Dr. Doug belong to many professional organizations due to their broad range of interests and training. They are as follows: the previously mentioned IAO, the ADA (American Dental Association), the AOS (American Orthodontic Society), the AAFO (American Association for Functional Orthodontics), the ATPA (Appliance Therapy Practitioners Association), and the AADSM (American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine). Dr. Dave resides in Quincy and has three children; daughter Lexi, and sons Curtis, and Colby. Dr. Doug also resides in Quincy with his son Daxton.
