A mentor once told Dr. Allen the most important decision he will make in his career is deciding where to raise his family.  Knowing that Michigan would always be home, Dr. Allen could not think of a better place than Traverse City.  Dr. Allen and his family moved to Traverse City after graduation and founded Shoreline Endodontics, PC in 2011.
