Allison Horn, DDS, MS
Allison Horn, DDS, MS attended the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts and majored in Psychology. She graduated with High Honors and was awarded the Banneker Key Scholarship. She then moved to New York City to work for a non-profit organization, Project Renewal, where she assisted clients battling homelessness, substance abuse, histories of incarceration, and mental illness.
She earned her DDS degree with Honors in Pediatric Dentistry from NYU College of Dentistry. Her favorite clinical experiences involved treating patients with severe dental phobia and utilizing her psychology background to make them more comfortable in a dental setting. Realizing that children offered the ultimate opportunity in helping patients overcome their fears, she decided to specialize in Pediatrics. When it came time to attend a residency in Pediatric Dentistry, she was thrilled to be selected for the program at the University of Illinois at Chicago and to move back to the Midwest.
Allison truly loves treating children and special needs patients. She especially enjoys giving a child their first dental visit and making it an enjoyable experience for both the child and the parent. She has very fond memories of her own pediatric dentist and wants all of her patients to feel the same way.
She, her husband, and their daughter live within earshot of the homerun cheers at Wrigley Field. In her free time, Allison can be found walking along Lake Michigan with her family, exploring the Chicago food scene with her chef husband, or planning her next adventure vacation. She can’t wait to meet you and your family!
