"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

"I have not seen a better dentist since 2002! I have had some pretty bad experiences in the past but Dr. Allred turned that all around today. He and the staff (front desk and assisstants included) are all super calm, friendly, and reassuring. I felt like I was a family member.I am pretty sure I asked an annoying amount of questions and I always got a detailed answer and never felt rushed. Literally the most thourough dentist I've ever had. I have been pretty scared of going to the dentist for nearly 15 years but Dr. Allred completely turn my fear around. I cant say enough good things. I have definitely found my life-long dentist! Thank You Allred Dental!!"- S.S. / Google / Jun 21, 2017
"I've had a lot of experience with dentists and Dr. Allred is the best I've been to. He is gentle, professional and does beautiful work. He also has what seems to me to be the latest in equipment. If you're a little neurotic (or a lot as I am) about dental visits, then this is the place for you. His staff without exception are great. They are very helpful and knowledgable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Allred to my family and friends."- B. / Google / Jun 21, 2017
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.
