Allison Karen White, D.M.D.

Owner, General Dentist

Professional

As an owner dentist here at KDC I focus on treating patients like family. I work here with Dr. Sheffield (my Dad!) who has built an amazing patient-centric office here in our community. I couldn't be happier to be here helping him expand this practice as we grow. A little bit about me…

I graduated from Ponaganset High School (right down the street) then went on to receive my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Boston College. During my time in college, I spent time shadowing my father at work and fell in love with dentistry. I realized it was a very hands-on way to help others. The dental field focuses on PREVENTION of oral and overall health issues. I love this proactive approach. I saw how my Dad's patients were really his friends and I couldn't wait to be part of that.

I loved living in Boston so I continued my education at Boston University where I studied Medical Sciences, published my thesis on 'The Effect of Dairy Products On Dental Caries,' and received my Master of Arts Degree in Oral Health & Medical Sciences. This is where I started to eat-live-breathe dentistry and how oral health affects overall health. I contributed significant data to the published research articles on dry mouth, fluoride, and head and neck cancer at Tufts School of Dental Medicine alongside world-renowned dentist and researcher, Athena Papas, Ph.D., D.M.D. In 2010 was accepted to the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine where I earned my Doctor of Dental Medicine, (D.M.D.) degree.

Personal

Dan is my wonderful husband who supports me and my career and has given me two beautiful children: Daniel Jr. (DJ) and Camille. I also have to mention my two golden retriever babies too, Bella and Scout! As a working mother, I am passionate about giving back to women and children: I provide dental care at Boston's women and children homeless shelters, I give lectures on nutrition and its effects on dental health to students and professors, and give aide and dental supplies to children in need in Thailand and The Philippines. I recently volunteered in Mexico placing implants for the underprivileged giving them teeth to be able to eat and smile again. I have enjoyed providing comprehensive dental care at the Boston South End Community Health Center for adult and pediatric patients.

Community

I am fascinated by all aspects of dentistry and provide my patients with gold standard care with completely individualized plans. I pride myself on thorough dental work and examinations and providing a calm, personable experience. My services include state of the art diagnoses and treatment plans, dental tooth replacement of missing teeth with implants and fixed bridges, aesthetic veneers, crowns & fillings, teeth alignment (Invisalign), cosmetic procedures, full mouth reconstructions, periodontal procedures, teeth whitening, restorative and fixed procedures, endodontics, fabrication of removable appliances, and surgical and non-surgical extractions.

Dentistry is constantly evolving and the Yankee Dental Congress is where I take courses on the newest technologies and procedures every year. I am an active member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Women Dentists, the Connecticut Dental Society, American Student Dental Association, & The Academy of General Dentistry.

Associate General Dentist

Professional

I earned a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) from Boston College in 1977 and my Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree from Georgetown University School of Dentistry in 1981. I became a dentist in Peabody and Medford, MA after graduation, then moved to Dayville, CT in 1985 where I started this dental practice. We have grown exponentially, all dentists and hygienists at this office provide individualized comfortable dentistry. I have been an active member of the American Dental Association and Connecticut State Dental Society since 1981. I am also a Board Member of Peer Review of Northeastern Connecticut.

Personal

I was born in Toronto in 1955, grew up among my two brothers in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada until 1964. I then moved to Woodridge, Connecticut, and became an American Citizen. I met my wife at Boston College in Biology Lab, and in 1978, we tied the knot! Soon after, Pamela and I had three loving children: Allison, Lauren, and Peter. Now, Allison, my oldest daughter, is working here as a dentist, following in her father's footsteps! She and her husband Dan have two children and two dogs and live in Massachusetts. Lauren is an elementary school teacher who lives with her husband Shawn, two children, and two dogs in Rhode Island. Peter and his wife Liz live in Rhode Island where he is a computer scientist and an avid snowboarder. Yes, I am a grandfather! It's such a joy.

Hobbies

I enjoy being very involved in our community. When I am not working or volunteering, I enjoy running, bicycling, time at the beach, and gardening. Most of all I love spending time with my wife, children, and my grandchildren.

Dr. Sheffield will be retiring at end of June 2024 after 40 years of gold-standard dentistry and dedication to his patients. His legacy will live on at KDC…

Welcome to Killingly Dental Care! Congratulations on taking your first step to optimal health! I graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor of Science in Human Physiology, and pursued graduate studies in Physiology, earning my Masters of Science from New York Medical College. Subsequently, I returned to complete my dental education at the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine where I received my Doctor of Dental Medicine, D.M.D. degree, magna cum laude. I graduated with certificates in CEREC, CPR, and Invisalign.

While in dental school, I served as a teaching assistant for removable prosthodontics (dentures), occlusion (the way your teeth come together and chew), and endodontics (root canals). I also performed research, publishing a study in 2017 looking at a novel pharmaceutical agent in the treatment of periodontitis in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology. Upon graduation, I was honored to be awarded the Hanau Best of the Best Prosthodontic Award, American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons 2018 Dental Implant Student Award, and the Oral and Craniofacial Biology Predoctoral Research Award.

Personal

I was born in South Africa and lived there until 1999. I moved to the United States, gradually moving up the east coast and finally landing in Massachusetts where I've lived for over 15 years.

Community Involvement and Interests

I thoroughly enjoy giving back to my community, often volunteering in my free time throughout the dental school at the local food bank, community events such as Boston’s Christmas in the City, and going to Panama for international dental mission work. I enjoy the outdoor activities that New England has to offer, and can often be found biking, hiking, and playing tennis.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Michelle Poon, D.M.D.

Associate General Dentist

Professional

I am excited to have joined the KDC team here in Connecticut! I have been in the dental field since I was 19 years old. I worked as a dental assistant at a general dentist office and an endodontist office while studying for my Bachelor Degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Alberta. I then had the opportunity to continue my education at the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine to obtain my Doctor of Dental Medicine, D.M.D. I ate a lot of candy growing up and was a frequent visitor at my dentist’s office! I am appreciative that I had a wonderful dentist and dental team who looked after me growing up. I understand the anxiety and awkwardness that comes with getting dental work done first hand. I don’t believe anyone should be embarrassed to express their dental concerns and questions! I am also happy to provide nitrous oxide to adult patients for their dental work.

Personal and Community

I grew up in Alberta, Canada where we only have two seasons: winter…and construction! I was lucky to have met my husband while studying in Boston and we have remained in New England since. I love getting to enjoy all four seasons here in New England. Since I grew up in a small Canadian city, I very much appreciate the close-knit community here at KDC. My current focus is volunteering at our local running group. We run in rain, snow, or shine!
