Dr. Nolan W. Allen, DDS
We feel like our office lends itself very, very well to relaxation and just a gentle approach to dentistry. We pride ourselves on that.
Additionally, we have specialists come in on a part time basis to render care that is perhaps beyond our scope of practice, so our patients don’t have to go here and there, they can have everything done under one roof. We’ve had that capability ever since we established ourselves and we pride ourselves on that as well.

I was born and raised in Indianapolis but I just despise cold weather, so guess why I’m in Florida.
I was educated at Indiana University in Bloomington and the IU School of Dentistry in Indianapolis. After dental school, I owed the Army two years because I took our OTC in under graduate so I spent two years as an Army dentist at Fort Huachuca out in Arizona.
Then, I had an opportunity to be the fourth dentist in a group practice, which was a new concept back in the mid seventies, so I was recruited to come to Clearwater and become that fourth man in a four man group practice eventually known as Clearwater Dental Associates.
Dr. Allen is a member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the West Coast Dental Association and the Upper Pinellas County Dental Association and the Florida Academy of Dental Practice Administration. He is honored to be a Fellow of the American College of Dentists, the International College of Dentists and the Pierre Fauchard Academy.
Outside of the office, Dr. Allen enjoys golfing, jogging, and spending time in the mountains of North Carolina.
