Dr. Allen Is Smarter Than A 5th Grader

by The Editors on September 23, 2008

Carlsbadistan dentist Richard Allen, DDS of Avia Dental Care just walked away with $175,000 from Fox’s hit TV show”Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader,” on September 19, 2008.

Dr. Allen was assisted in victory by a class of 5th graders and five colleagues from his office, including Carlsbad residents Diana Lain, Susan Milch, and Jordan Davison as well as Amanda Phillips and Dorothy Davis from Oceanside. He opted to take the money and end the competition after being stumped on a question about the first names of early explorers Lewis and Clark.

What is he going to do with the money? “I will probably donate it to my favorite cause, the education of my two college-age sons,” he said.
