Dr. Dalton Allen


I am Dalton C. Allen, DDS. I am a Howard University Dental School graduate with 48 years of clinical experience treating children and adults. I have no doubt the Big Smiles DC school dentist program is largely responsible for improving the oral health of our patients. Because of this program, these children will not face the painful and expensive results of neglect.

As a young child I was very frightened of the dentist, as I had experienced a couple of negative visits in the dental chair. However as a teenager I met a new dentist, who with his gentle way of doing dentistry, inspired me to become a dentist. I have always desired to help others and try and make a difference in their lives. The Ohio Dental Outreach program has enabled me to do this. This is not just a job, but a calling in my life.

Dr. Karyn Boltz


January ‘16 began my 9th year with Mobile Dentists for Kids, providing this much needed service for children in Ohio. Besides my goal of trying to make our brief encounters stress-free and a fun experience for the children, my favorite things about our days are listening to the hysterical things they say, and knowing that we have prevented some dental decay or discovered caries that would have otherwise gone unrecognized until it was too advanced. It breaks my heart when I do see badly decayed/abscessed teeth and children in pain and I always pray that they receive adequate follow-up with a local dentist. When not traveling around the state, I can usually be found working on our landscaping, making jewelry, or traveling the world.

In the last two decades of being in the dental field, I have most enjoyed working with little patients and find them fascinating. I feel honored to be able to serve in the school mobile dentist program. I strongly believe we are breaking down one very real barrier to good dental health in children by being able to see them in school. I spend my free time with my school aged children, running, reading and gardening.

Dr. Randolph Faulk


I’ve been a general dentist for 25 years, and I truly love what I do. As a kid, I always liked playing with small toy soldiers and putting models together–still do! And I’ve always been a perfectionist and into detail. But I also like health and care–It feels good to make someone feel better about their smile, or relieve their pain. Outside of dentistry and my family; my hobbies include running, history, photography, and our pet dogs and cats.

Dr. Lan Gegenheimer

Dr. Judy Gerson


As a senior at Shaker Heights High School, I knew that I wanted to be a dentist, and for my senior project I chose to work at my dentist’s office. I picked dentistry because I like to work with my hands, and I enjoy its combination of art and science. I help people chew better, speak with confidence, and look better with a nice healthy smile. I was the first woman dentist in Solon and had my own office there for 18 years. I am the proud mother of 3 grown up daughters and in my free time I like to knit, read, travel, and take my dog, Cleo, for a walk.

For almost a decade, I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with a group of top notch dental professionals. Together we provide the very best school based dental health care to hundreds if not thousands of children of all ages with varying dental needs. For many students, our mobile dental teams are the only source available they have for achieving and maintaining good dental health. The interaction I have and the ability to help so many great kids has and continues to be a truly remarkable and rewarding experience.

I became a dentist because my Godmother was a Pediatric Dentist. I admire her so much for how she made her little patients so comfortable and at ease. I said to myself in 8th grade “That is so cool how she can help those babies feel so at ease.” I love to walk along Chicago lakefront and now I am cycling.

I have loved dentistry since I was 6 years of age, as I wanted to make dentures for my grandmother to eat with. My best time is the one spent with my family and my three children, especially traveling together and outdoor activities. It was always my Catholic faith and Jesus that called me to go out and serve others.
