Allan O. Dean, O.D.

Dr. AllenHelping people see and appreciate the world.”

“I was drawn to healthcare because I like things that are intellectually challenging. I chose optometry because I like meeting and interacting with people. My profession gives me the opportunity to help people improve and protect their vision. I like the idea that I’m restoring more than patients’ vision. I’m restoring their ability to appreciate the world around them – loved ones and friends, and the beauty of nature. What’s more, I love the fact that we offer some of the most advanced leading-edge technology in the Tallahassee area – to give patients an even clearer choice for their total vision care.”
