"I had such a wonderful experience at Allred dental. Dr. Allred and his staff are super friendly and attentive they made me feel totally relaxed which is pretty rare for being at a dentist office. I was actually a little nervous going in for my procedure because I was scared it was going to be painful. In the contrary I felt no pain and they were finished before I knew it. It was great!! I would highly recommend Allred dental to anyone needing dental services."- C.C. / Google / Aug 21, 2017

"From the time the receptionist answered the phone to the time I walked out the door, I was treated very professionally from the entire staff at Allred Dental. You can expect a friendly voice from Ellen when you call to make your appointment and when you walk in the door. After a very thorough photo session of my teeth, the dental assistant walked me through a tour of my mouth asking me a lot of questions and telling me what was going on with my teeth. When Dr Allred came in, a thorough recap in her findings was presented to him and me. From there he checked himself, agreed with everything she said and had a couple additional points. Then on to my cleaning which was a breeze. They really take care to insure your comfort. Great dental experience."- A.N. / Yelp / Aug 07, 2018

What to Expect
To customize the mouth guard, Dr. Allred takes a series of digital x-rays and impressions for our in-house dental laboratory where advanced technology and high-quality materials will be used to create your mouth guard. Once the mouth guard is complete, Dr. Allred will adjust it for the best fit and the most comfortable bite.
Dr. Allred will go over all care instructions, including the best way to clean and store your mouth guard. To ensure the wear and fit of the guard are adjusted as needed, you should bring your mouth guard to all of your future dental appointments. With proper care and use, a mouth guard can last up to eight years, but Dr. Allred will check it regularly and help you decide when you need a replacement.
A custom mouth guard is usually not covered by dental insurance, but our office will confirm your individual benefits. To help make mouth guards more affordable for our patients, we do accept many forms of payment and offer financing plans.
