Charris Allen, D.M.D

Program: General Practice Dentistry

Year: GPD-1

Hometown: New Castle, DE

Undergrad: University of Delaware

Dental school: Rutgers School of Dental Medicine

Interests/Hobbies: I enjoy activities that highlight my artistic side such as cooking, drawing, and styling hair. I also love getting together with family and/or friends for good food and great conversation.

Why I chose Christiana Care and Delaware: I chose Christiana Care because it’s embedded in my family. My mother and sister both work for Christiana Care and my dental mentor completed his residency with Christiana Care. Delaware is where I am originally from so I couldn’t wait to move back after completing my dental school education. What better way for me to use my DMD degree than to service the very community I grew up in.
