Allison Howard

Senior Director of Marketing

Biography

Allison Howard graduated from the University of Maryland with a BA in Psychology. She then completed her Master of Public Health degree in Behavioral Science at Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health. She spent her first years out of graduate school teaching graduate and undergraduate courses and conducting Qualitative Behavioral and Epidemiological research at Emory University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Allison took some time off to raise her two children (now teenagers), but continued to teach part-time at Georgia State University College. Once her children were both in elementary school, Allison went to work for The Children’s Dental Center of Atlanta as the Marketing Director and Recall Supervisor. She later transitioned to Dentistry for Children as the Executive Director of Health Education and, soon after the company became D4C Dental Brands, was promoted first to Director of Marketing and then Senior Director of Marketing and Detailing. Her role has changed substantially since the early days with The Children’s Dental Center of Atlanta where she was responsible for marketing 5 local offices to her position today overseeing 125 offices in 6 states. Allison will be the first to tell you that the Marketing Department has the most fun. She encourages creativity and out of the box campaigns that draw positive attention to the many brands her department manages.
