This month, the entire country paused to reflect on the 20-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that shook us all in September 2001. What also occurred in September 2001 was Dr Jacqueline Allen opening her own endodontic specialty practice in Phoenix, AZ. Dr. Allen purchased the practice of Dr. Martin Goldman – his office was located at 19th Avenue & Tuckey Lane in Phoenix, AZ.
Over the years, Dr. Allen grew her business by acquiring the endodontic specialty offices of Dr. Charles L. Siroky and Dr. Joseph S. Dovgan. In 2014, Dr. Susan Wood joined the practice and we began using the trade name “Phoenix Endodontic Group.”
“Over the last 20 years, I have been blessed to work with some of the best dentists in the Phoenix area”, said Dr. Allen. “I am humbled by the confidence they place in me to take the very best care possible for their patients.”
For 20 years, the Phoenix Endodontic Group has been able to grow and prosper due to the hard work of all of the staff we have had on our team during this time. A special mention goes to Suzie Salas who since 2007 has been Dr. Allen’s main assistant. Additionally, since 2012, Kim Rowell has provided front office, administrative and PR support to our practice. It takes a team effort to be able to provide the best in class service we are known for.
Our patients are the reason we are here in the first place. Dr. Allen and her team are grateful for the opportunities we have had to meet and treat such wonderful people. “My life has been enriched by meeting, treating and getting to know some amazing individuals”, said Dr. Allen. “My patients mean the world to me.” One of the biggest compliments Dr. Allen receives is when a patient self-refers themselves to our practice because of the care they received (and remember) on a prior visit.
Dentistry as a profession has changed significantly over the last 20 years. Dr. Allen has made it a priority to always be on the technological cutting edge. Use of CBCT’s, dental lasers and a huge investment in Continuing Education has helped Dr. Allen provide care using the latest technologies to go along with her “patient first” philosophy and approach.
We do not normally take the time to celebrate milestones, but all of us at Phoenix Endodontic Group feel that a 20- year anniversary is very special. We want to thank everyone who has had a role in our success over the years: our staff, patients, and referring partners alike. We look forward to another 20 years of providing the best endodontic care that can be found anywhere.
