Brandon Allen, DDS Bio

Dr. Brandon Allen is the second child of Leroy and Janette Allen. He was born and raised in Richmond, VA, with a brother, L. Wendell Allen, a local attorney. His family upbringing was strong in moral values, God, and education. He is a 25-year member of Cedar Street Baptist Church of God and a 25-year member of the usherā€™s ministry.

Dr. Allenā€™s educational journey continues to be rewarding and enjoyable. His initial schooling started with the East End Day Care Nursery, progressed to George Washington Carver Elementary, Ginter Park Elementary, Henderson Middle School, John F. Kennedy High School, and John Marshall High School. Dr. Beverly Braxton-Cleveland was his school principal throughout his elementary, middle and high school years. He had 13 years of perfect attendance in grades K-12, honors in academics and he excelled in sports and citizenship. While at Kennedy he lettered in football and played basketball.

Some highlights of Dr. Allenā€™s high school days include Academic Athlete of the Year, Captain of the Mighty Justices football team, All-District Lineman, All-Metro, Academic All-Region and Athletes for Jesus Player of the Week. He was also selected to represent the Commonwealth of Virginia during a Teen Grassroots Summit in Tokyo, Japan. Dr. Allen said he felt honored when the teenage princess selected him to sit next to her while dining.

In 1999, Dr. Allen received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Hampton, University in Hampton, VA. He then entered Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington, D.C. where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2003. In 2004, Dr. Allen entered the Howard University Residency Program in Pediatric Dentistry. In his second year, he was appointed Chief Resident and taught undergraduates in the laboratory. He completed the program and received his Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry in 2006. After completing his residency, he accepted a position as the lead dentist at Kool Smiles Dental Clinic in Newport News, VA. He enjoyed the work and gained three years of valuable experience.

Dr. Allenā€™s hobbies and community services are entwined. He loves basketball, music, video games and football. His favorite pro football team is the Miami Dolphins and his favorite college basketball team is the North Carolina Tarheels.

Dr. Allen has always been community oriented and believes in doing his share of volunteer work. He has volunteered in many capacities ā€“ as a scholastic tutor, an after-school camp counselor and coach and a counselor at a summer basketball camp.

Dr. Allenā€™s father, a retired dental lab technician at the Veterans Administration Hospital, spent many years in the Army Reserve with Dr. Adams. Their friendship was the catalyst that brought Dr. Adams and Dr. Allen together. Dr. Adams has known Dr. Allen all of his life and gave him his first check-up at 6 weeks of age. Dr. Adams was a constant encouragement offering teaching, training, summer jobs and continuous support to Dr. Allen. These were some of the factors that directed him into the field of dentistry.

Dr. Allen joined the Dentistry for Children staff in October 2009, completing his lifelong dream. He believes he is very blessed to be able to practice his chosen profession, pediatric dentistry, in the community he loves and where he grew up.

Dr. Allen is married to the love of his life, Shanail Allen. They dated while they were at Howard University College of Dentistry. Shanail completed her training and received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2006. They have two daughters, Brielle and Brynn.

How to ease dental phobia and needle fears

Being nervous or afraid to visit the dentist is very common ā€“ in fact, itā€™s so common thereā€™s a name for it: dentophobia.
