Artwork in gallery: two charcoal pieces; one depicting Doc Holliday and the other depicting a hand grasping a dental instrument 

Inspiration: “I decided to do a dental theme. I found out that Doc Holliday was a dentist, and the other one was inspired by M.C. Escher.”

How her artwork serves as an outlet: “Everything I do in grad prosthodontics is basically now my outlet. If I have time, I like doing art. Most of my inspiration comes from still life, something that’s real that I can translate to the paper.”

What you may not know about Allen: makes creative use of leftover base plate wax.

“I have a menagerie of base plate animals. I have a lot of art at home. I sculpt; I do everything.”
