Meet Allison Van Vooren, DDS, MS

When Dr. Allison Van Vooren was a child, she dreamed of being a dentist, just like her grandpa.

As she went through orthodontic treatment as a teenager, her dream changed slightly. She decided to become an orthodontist to help change smiles, just like hers was changed.

Dr. Van Vooren graduated from Marquette University, earning first her Bachelors of Science degree in Biological Sciences with a minor in Mathematics and followed by her Doctorate of Dental Surgery.

It was during college at Marquette that she met her husband, Andrew, through mutual friends.

Dr. Van Vooren’s loving husband followed her to Lincoln, NE where she completed her orthodontic residency and a Masters of Science degree in Oral Biology.

Following her residency, Dr. Van Vooren became a board-certified orthodontist.
