Angie has been with The Dental ER since opening in February 2017, helping Dr. Dave with tasks prior to opening. She worked with Dr. Dave and Dr. Doug at AA Dental Care in Quincy previously for over ten years. Angie is a Certified Dental Assistant with certificates in coronal polishing, pit and fissure sealants, and nitrous oxide sedation monitoring from SIU Alton Dental School. She graduated from Quincy Senior High School (Quincy, Illinois) in 2003. Angie has been married to her talented husband for over five years and been together for over ten years. They have four children: their daughter, Austyn, and three sons, Denver Lee III, Brayden and Lincoln. They also have three step-grandchildren: Mason, Nolly and Irie. Lil Bit is their super-chihuahua/ terroir-chihuahua mix dog.

Her contractor husband owns a monster truck named Venom and they go on the road to monster truck events, even hosting a show once a year in their hometown of Quincy, Illinois. They love to go camping, fishing and hunting. Angie has a collection of deer, turkey, hog, black bear, caribou, alligator, and rams she has hunted herself. For fun, she sometimes plays softball and sand volleyball recreationally with siblings and friends. I just love to be outside so I could be doing anything or nothing and be happy as long as Im outside enjoying the company of my family and friends.

A lot of the responsibilities of our office are shared between all of us, which is what makes us such a great team. We all work so well together and can fill in wherever needed at that time. I have been with Dr. Dave for so long that his ethics and knowledge in dentistry are now a big part of who I am, and I couldnt imagine working anywhere else with anyone else.

I am traveling from out of state. I was in intense pain the other day. I called their Macomb office and they were able to get me in. The office staff, assistant and dentist were all very kind and helpful. I've had no pain or discomfort since they pulled my molar. I highly recommend this dentist

I was seen the following day that I called, I was treated great from my phone call, the whole staff was very caring and professional. I had a tooth pulled, I couldn't of ever dreamed of how easy and painless it turned out to be. Then when I was paying, it was so much cheaper than the price quoted. I will definitely be returning here and highly recommend this office.

While on vacation in Macomb Il I had a problem with a tooth three days' worth of pain I contacted " The Dental ER. I told them my problem and was told to show up first thing the next day. I arrived the next day a little early the young lady at the front desk assisted me in filling out the paperwork, then straight to the back for the Dentist. At 60 years old I've visited many dentists this guy was the best, he told me my options and went to work. David Allen is the best in the business all of staff were top notch. If in that area again in would feel honored or him to work on me. Steven Churning

Dr Allen is absolutely the best dentist l have ever been to. Other dentist could take a page or two from his book. I broke a front tooth off at the gum line. I arrived at 9am the next morning and left at 10am with a new tooth. Outstanding. Thanks

They did great work but when it came to billing they messed up my entire credit. Every time I reached out to try and get this resolved, they never answered and never returned my call. Very disappointed and will never go back or refer.
