Meet Dr. Tyler R. Allen

Dr. Tyler R. Allen is passionate about creating gorgeous, healthy smiles! His love of patient care and desire to always make others smile led him to pursue a career in dentistry. He is a summa cum laude graduate of Arkansas State University. Dr. Allen next attended the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry, again earning honors including a national honor society. While at UT he was Student Government Association president along with many other leadership roles. A three-year orthodontic residency at the University of Tennessee followed.

Dr. Allen is committed to being current in the constantly changing and advancing field of orthodontics. This ensures our patients are receiving the best available treatment. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, Southern Association of Orthodontics, Tennessee Association of Orthodontics, American Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association, and the Second District Dental Society. In addition, Dr. Allen is a certified diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics.


Dr. Allen and his wife, Kendall, met in dental school. Kendall is a native Knoxvillian and once she introduced Tyler to the beautiful hills of the East Tennessee, he knew this would be their home. They have a daughter, Claire, twin sons, Elliott and Bennett and a goldendoodle named Piper. Dr. Allen enjoys everything in the outdoors (sports, hunting, lake activities, hiking), serving the community, and participating in overseas mission trips (Ecuador, Kenya, and Tanzania). They attend Fellowship Church on Middlebrook Pike.
