Allison K. Marlow


Dr. Marlow is thrilled to lead the team at Southern Roots in Northern Kentucky. She returned back to the “South” to practice after spending seven years in Indianapolis, Indiana.

After growing up in Dothan, Alabama, Dr. Marlow completed her undergraduate education at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama before completing a Doctorate of Dental Surgery and a three-year residency program in Periodontics and Dental Implantology at Indiana University School of Dentistry. This residency consisted of advanced training in periodontal disease, gum tissue grafting, esthetic gum shaping, dental implants, advanced bone grafting for dental implants and periodontal disease, management of medically compromised patients, diagnosis and treatment of oral pathology, and team-approach techniques between general dentists, dental specialists, and medical physicians for a comprehensive dental treatment.

In her free time, she enjoys traveling, watching The Great British Bake-Off, finding ways to remove dog fur from all her black scrubs, and spending time with her husband, Adam, and their four dogs: Evie, Brisket, Willow, and Weller.

Dr. Marlow would love to work with you for all your periodontal needs. She’ll be the one wearing some dog “confetti.”
