A graduate of the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Dr. Cynthia Allen opened SummerHills Dental in 1994 with a vision of providing affordable, compassionate and comprehensive cosmetic and general dental treatment for the entire family.
As a resident of Summerlin herself, Dr. Allen enjoys spending her time away from the office with her family. Her hobbies include biking, snowboarding, hiking and eating Bluebell ice cream.
Dr. Allen enjoys giving back to the community especially by volunteering for some of the many programs here in Las Vegas that give dental care to individuals that otherwise would not be afforded dental health. Programs like these include Huntridge Teen Clinic, Southern Nevada One-Day Kids Program, Donated Dental Services, and Smiles for Survivors which provides dental treatment for patients who have undergone cancer treatment and suffered from dental consequences. Professional affiliates include American Dental Association, Nevada Dental Association, and Southern Nevada Dental Society.
A native of San Diego, California, Dr. Alemi attended San Diego State University for his undergraduate studies prior to accepting early admission into UCSF School of Dentistry. After practicing as a general dentist for 3 years, Dr Alemi pursued advanced studies and training by completing a 3 year residency in Prosthodontics at the John D. Dingell VAMC and University of Michigan School of Dentistry. Having served as a clinical instructor and lecturer in the field of dental implants, Dr. Alemi provides implant, cosmetic, full mouth reconstructions, smile makeovers and advanced dental services for our patients. He holds professional affiliations with the ADA, American College of Prosthodontists (ACP), Academy of Osseointegration (AO), American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontic (AAFP), California Dental Association (CDA), and Southern Nevada Association (SNDA).

After working in all facets of a dental office, from coordinating appointments to being a dental assistant in high school, I studied biology and chemistry at Southwestern University. My exceptional education later primed me for several roles I would take as a dentist working with several mentors. During this time, I was also able to volunteer my time and skills toward people in need in Mexico and for Hurricane Katrina relief.
When I received braces as a child, I remember instantly wanting to be a dentist. It was in that moment that I understood the power of a great smile and how reflective it is of a person's general well-being. I wanted to help provide that for others, and it still drives my passion for helping my patients today. My goal is to educate my patients on the importance of their oral health and getting patients to form good habits early.
My approach to dentistry is about listening to my patients and then sharing my passion for oral healthcare with them. I enjoy watching smiles take shape and working with people of all ages.Raised in the great state of Texas, my family and I moved to Las Vegas in 2014. I quickly found a dental home and fantastic work environment at SummerHills Dental. Professional affiliates include American Dental Association, Nevada Dental Association, and Southern Nevada Dental Society.
