IT IS THE KEY THAT FITS THE LOCK OF EVERYBODY’S HEART
MEET OUR DOCTOR
Dr. Allison Mele, DDS
I am originally from Omaha, Nebraska and love watching Husker fall football. (Sorry to the Northwestern fans!) I majored in Biochemistry at the University of Missouri before returning to Omaha where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Science from Creighton University. I had a unique opportunity during dental school to travel to the Dominican Republic for six weeks, providing dental care to the underserved. It made such an impact on me that I hope to one day return as a ‘mentor doctor’ to support this wonderful cross-cultural program.
After graduating from dental school, I moved to Chicago and spent a year with Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center completing their General Practice Residency program. The residency was phenomenal. I gained experience with many complex dental procedures including placing implants, performing surgeries, and doing IV sedation dentistry. I was exposed to hospital dentistry by taking calls in the emergency room, treating patients in the operating room and everything in between. I had the opportunity to serve different communities in Chicago with our mobile dental van program and rotating through Stroger County Hospital. With all of these experiences, my favorite was working with special needs patients on a weekly basis. Many times it was a struggle, but it was the most rewarding experience of my residency.
I am a member of the Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society and American Dental Association. I am Invisalign certified and trained at the Cosmedent Center for Esthetic Excellence.
I am a newlywed of one year to my wonderful husband, Mitch. We have enjoyed exploring Chicago together and trying the city’s hidden gems! You can find us jogging along the lakefront on the weekends, going to concerts, or best of all cooking something new at home!
I cannot wait to meet each of you personally and continue to provide you with great dental care.
