Robert B. (Burke) Noel, DDS:   Dr. Noel was born in West Texas and grew up in Ft. Worth, through his high school graduation.  He completed his Undergraduate Degree at Texas Tech with a degree in Biochemistry and then attended Baylor College of Dentistry, graduating in 1997.  He practiced dentistry in Oregon for two years, Washington state for one year and moved to Papillion NE in September 2000.  Dr. Noel was a partner at Dundee Family Dental from 2001 to 2011, workijng in the Dundee location as well as the location at 703 Tara Plaza.  Because he enjoyed the Papillion patients so much, Dr. Noel purchased the Papillion office in 2011 and became the business owner and solo practitioner.  The practice name change has caused some patients to wonder if Allure Dental is corporately owned, but Dr. Noel is the proud local owner!  Dr. Noel prides himself on the relationship and mutual trust he builds with his patients.  Some patients have been at the practice for over 40 years, and continue to refer their friends.  Dr. Noel is known for his kind, quiet and gentle nature and patients rave about how comfortable the shots are that he gives!  Technology plays a big part in patient care since Dr. Noel feels that technology can enhance the patient experience when used in the right way and for the right reasons.  He enjoys providing dental care from simple to very sophisticated, including a CT scanner for diagnostic purposes, dental implant placement, full cosmetic restoration cases and a less invasive surgery for gum recession.  Several general dentists in Omaha refer patients to him for procedures they don't do, knowing he will provide excellent care and return the patient to them when care is completed.  Dr. Noel also participates in on-going Continuing Education to be able to offer his patients the best care possible.   Dr. Noel has served as President of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) and remains as the Chairman of their Continuing Education Committee.  While he stays very busy in his professiona life, Dr. Noel values his down time as well.  He remarried in August 2016 and he and his new bride have 6 children between them.  The family stays very active, as you can well imagine and Dr. Noel enjoys all aspects of being a husband and dad!    

Sharon is our Dental Assistant and is transplanted to Papillion from California where she graduated from Western Career College in 1992 as a dental assistant.  She enjoys the relationships she builds with the patients, working closely with Dr. Noel on their needed care, and keeping our patients comfortable.  Sharon enjoys reading and spending time with her young adult children and staying in touch with her long-distance friends as well as new friends she makes in the Omaha area.

Karen is the Dental Hygienist for Allure Dental. Karen was born and raised in the Smokey Mountains in East Tennessee.  She married a military man and traveled the country, landing in the Omaha area about 15 years ago.  While living in Omaha, Karen attended and graduated from Iowa Western Community College with an Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene.  Karen then pursued a Bachelors of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from Creighton University and was the first hygienist to do so.  She pursued her interest in pubic health and ran programs at Winnebago, Hope Medical Outreach Coalition and the UNMC College of Dentistry.  Karen also taught clinical hygiene to dental students at Creighton University School of Dentistry.  She was the first dental hygienist to receive a Nebraska Public Health Authorization license which permitted her to provide patient care without a dentist’s supervision.  PHEW!  Karen has been one busy lady!  In addition, Karen is married, has 3 grown children, 2 dogs and has been a dental hygienist for 14 years.  Karen is excited to provide patient care in a general dental office again and looks forward to meeting all of our great patients!!  And we LOVE her southern accent and are sure you will, too!!
