The Allens met while attending Vanderbilt University, and then studied together at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. Drs. Cory and Chelsea both served as Dental Officers in the U.S. Navy from 2005 to 2009, moving from San Diego to Sasebo, Japan and finally to Beaufort in 2008. Dr. Cory completed a hospital-based General Practice Residency focusing on oral surgery (complex extractions) and medically compromised patients while stationed in San Diego and spent two years aboard the USS Juneau based out of Japan as their dental officer. After completing his active service at MCRD Parris Island, he continued to serve our great country as a reservist and was honorably discharged as a Lieutenant Commander in 2013. Dr. Chelsea completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency focusing on cosmetic and endodontic (root canal) procedures while in San Diego. She then ran her own dental clinic in Japan, treating shore-based sailors and family members of deployed sailors. The Allens are active members of Christ Episcopal Church where Dr. Chelsea enjoys singing in the contemporary service praise band and Dr. Cory is on the Vestry. They live in RiverTowne and have been blessed with three boys, Kirkland, Barrett, and Ferris. The Allens enjoy searching for authentic Japanese restaurants and cooking a wide assortment of dishes that they grew to love from their travels abroad.
