Dr. Allison Williams grew up in the Midwestern town of Carmel, IN, where at the age of 11 she first told her parents about her desire to become an orthodontist. That dream began to unfold when she attended Indiana University, studying Biology and Small Business Management. She graduated with honors in 2014, and met her husband, Matt, through leading Young Life in the process.
Dr. Williams continued to pursue her dream, beginning her dental education at Indiana University School of Dentistry, located in Indianapolis. In 2018, she completed her training and graduated at the top of her class. Subsequently, Dr. Williams accepted a residency position at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry Graduate Orthodontic Residency Program – one of the top orthodontic programs in the country. She earned an Orthodontic Certification and Master’s Degree of Dental Science upon successfully defending her thesis on 3-D printing. Through this program, Dr. Williams gained extensive experience with interdisciplinary cases and served on the craniofacial team during her time as a resident.
Dr. Williams and her husband, Matt, enjoy spending their time hiking, kayaking, cooking, and running with their dog, Mowgli. They have stayed active in Young Life throughout their marriage and cannot wait to see where they can serve in Johnson City. Matt is happy to continue his career as a Biology teacher at Science Hill High School.
They’re excited about moving to East Tennessee where they’ll be surrounded by the beautiful mountains and southern hospitality. Dr. Williams is truly honored to work with such an outstanding team at Sturgill Orthodontics and she is thrilled to meet all of you!
