Dear Referring Doctors, Hygienists and Patients,
Thanks to your generosity and partnership, Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants has grown immensely over the past twelve years. As it goes with change and growth, challenges of every fashion are inevitable. One of those challenges is continuing to service you, your team and your wonderful patients in a timely manner so as to restore them to complete and optimal oral health. To help us in meeting this challenge and accomplish our goal of complete health for every patient, we felt the addition of another periodontist was essential. It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition of Dr. Jessica Shreck-Allen, a board eligible periodontist, to our practice. The addition of Dr. Shreck-Allen ends an exhaustive search to find the individual that embodies the essential core values, skills and personality of our doctor and team.
Dr. Jessica Shreck – Allen has received her Certificate in Periodontics and Masters of Dental Sciences from Virginia Commonwealth University, where she has served as a chief resident and clinical instructor in the predoctoral clinic. Dr Shreck- Allen has done research at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry, Using CBCT as a Diagnostic Tool to Evaluate Maxillary First Molar Furcation Defects, in vivo. This research will provide the clinician with insight into the accuracy of standard clinical measurements of furcation involved teeth to cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and help the dental community determine the place of the CBCT as a diagnostic tool. Her paper has been submitted for publication in the Journal Of Periodontology. She completed her doctoral education at the University of Nevada School Of Dental Medicine and graduated magna cum laude. During her time there she held numerous positions in professional dental associations, earned the American Academy of Periodontology dental student award for achievement in Periodontology and was inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon, a national dental honor society. While in dental school, she volunteered her services to the underserved in the Las Vegas area, including children’s clinic, veteran’s clinic and homeless clinic. She earned a bachelor’s of science degree with a major in Biology and minor in Chemistry from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. She has close to a decade of experience in the field of dentistry, including years of work as a dental assistant and collaboration on a number of research projects.
Jessica was born and raised in Las Vegas. She comes from a family of medical professionals, her father a physician and mother a nurse, who inspired her to help others. She is happy to return to Las Vegas to be closer to her family. In her free time, she enjoys socializing, cooking and spending time with her husband and son.
Dr. Shreck – Allen will spend the next 4 weeks training in our Summerlin and Henderson offices becoming acquainted with our practice’s protocols, so that you, your team and your patients can expect the same service in a seamless manner.
We thank you in celebrating this fantastic addition to Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants. We look forward to continuing to service you, your team and patients in the most efficient, professional, and expert manner so as to reach the goal of optimal health!
