Dr. Michelle Allar
Board Certified Orthodontic Specialist in Mooresville, NC
Dr. Michelle Allar, DDS, MS is originally from upstate New York, and practiced orthodontics in Dayton, OH, starting in 2015 before moving to Mooresville, NC, in 2020. Unlike many orthodontists, she has extensive experience in general and cosmetic dentistry which helps in her communication with other specialists and in creating healthy and beautiful smiles that patients have always dreamed of.
Michelle’s strong work ethic, passion for serving others, and dedication to dentistry have set her apart throughout her education and career. While completing her bachelor’s degree at Cornell, her dental education at Stony Brook, and her residency program in General Dentistry at Eastman Institute of Oral Health, she worked part-time as a dental/orthodontic assistant and as a dentist while completing her Master’s in Orthodontics at St. Louis University. She believes that orthodontics is the best job in the world because it allows her to combine science, art, and personal service every day.
The cosmetic aspects of creating beautiful smiles are her true passion, but through continued education, she has recognized that she can impact the lives of her patients in deeper ways. Screening for and treating sleep disorder breathing by focusing on airway-centric orthodontics has been an eye-opening experience, as the impact on the patients and their families is profound. In addition, service has played a major role in her life and she has even taken it on the road building houses and providing dental care in Nicaragua, Madagascar, the Galapagos Islands, and Peru. Michelle has stayed actively involved in dentistry and has published articles in esteemed dental journals and will continue to contribute to her profession in this manner.
Michelle lives in Mooresville, NC with her husband Nick, their son Trevor, their daughter Annaliese and their golden doodle Tia Mae. When she’s not busy creating beautiful smiles, you’ll find her working out, running, cooking, listening to live music, playing guitar, painting, and spending lots of quality time with her family. Michelle looks forward to serving you and your family with extraordinary service and top-notch orthodontic care.
