Young Life

Marc Allen Orthodontics patients have more in common than just knowing Dr. Allen or braces. Some of Dr. Allen’s patients are members of Young Life, a non-profit and non-denominational Christian ministry that reaches out to teens through club meetings, group activities, and camps by building meaningful relationships with other adolescents and volunteers within your chapter area.

Dr. Allen spent many years hosting Gastonia’s Young Life Chapter at his parents house in Gastonia when he was in High School. He played guitar for the evening meetings and attended Windy Gap trips whenever possible.

With the growth of Marc Allen Orthodontics, volunteer work in the lake Norman chapter for him has been limited. However, Dr. Allen’s career has allowed him the good fortunate of participating with Young Life through financial support of the Lake Norman Young Life Chapter.

By the way, Marc Allen Orthodontics donates two full orthodontic cases per year for silent auctions at Young Life’s fundraising events, potentially saving patients thousands of dollars on a set of braces.
