Meet Your Doctor

Dr. Allison Bergdoll is originally from Valparaiso, Indiana, where she was born and raised.  She attended Valparaiso University, where she met her husband, Ryan.  After college graduation, Dr. Bergdoll and Ryan moved to Indianapolis, Indiana so she could pursue her dream of becoming a dentist and eventually an orthodontist.  After spending four years in Indianapolis and graduating from dental school, they moved to Birmingham, Alabama where she attended an orthodontic residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

After spending several years away from home, Dr. Bergdoll and Ryan were thrilled to move back to Indiana to raise their two children, Keira and Elliott.
