Charles M. Allen, Sr., D.D.S.Charles M. Allen, Sr., D.D.S., has been working for several years to establish an office that stresses optimum painless dental care with a very pleasant staff and enjoyable working environment. As a healthcare provider, he recognizes that skill and compassion work together to provide exceptional patient care. He started his dental training at the University of Texas Dental Branch in Houston, Texas. After receiving his degree he went into the Navy for two years before moving back to his hometown of Corpus Christi. His father, Dr. William Allen, and son, Dr. Chad Allen, all enjoy making people's smiles the best they can be. In order to attain his goal of making dentistry pain free, Dr. Charles Allen became certified to administer Conscious Sedation and has remained up to date with the latest technological advances in dentistry. Conscious Sedation allows patients to have most all of their dental needs met in one appointment while in a relaxed sleepy state.
Dr. Allen's success in achieving a top quality office was rewarded when he was named in a survey of his peers conducted by Texas Monthly as a SUPER DENTIST in 2009 and 2013. He has served as President of the Nueces Valley District Dental Society and the Corpus Christi Dental Study Club.
As an active community volunteer, Dr. Allen, along with his father and many friends, met the need of Timon's Ministry for dental health for the underserved by establishing the free William M. Allen, D.D.S. Dental Clinic in 2009. Dr. Allen was the first Lay Director of the Journey to Damascus movement and he is a Eurcharistic minister at St. Pius X Catholic Church.
Dr. Allen enjoys sailing, flying, snow skiing, scuba diving, "Suping"(stand-up paddle boarding), and playing bass guitar. An active windsurfer, Dr. Allen founded the U.S. Open Windsurfing Regatta in 1987, which ran for twenty years and he won the 55 and Over Windsurfing Nation title in 2001 in Hood River. He is past commodore of Corpus Christi Yacht Club and in 1966 was the State Single-Handed Champion for Texas in sailing. An accomplished pilot, Dr. Allen currently has 500 hours flight time with a Commercial, Multi-Engine,Instrument, Landing license. Dr. Allen loves making music for good causes and has played the bas guitar on Journey to Damascus weekends. Dr. Allen is a founding member of the Texas Dental Laser Study Club. After rearing three children, he is now the grandfather of six very young and precious grandchildren who keep him busy in his time away from the office. (He is a great lizard catcher for the grandkids!)
Dr. Allen welcomes new patients and is ready to help you with your dental needs. He enjoys giving patients all their options regarding treatments and wants his treatment to be a permanent solution rather than a temporary fix. Our office is where "Beautiful Smiles are Born".
