Why Did You Decide to
Become a Dentist?

In his younger years, Dr. Mullens idolized his pediatric dentist, Dr. Charles Fain, in Daytona Beach, FL. He was a very caring man who also appeared to thoroughly enjoy his work, and that impression definitely stuck with Dr. Mullens as he reached adulthood. Becoming a dentist was a way for him to fuse his fascination with technology with a passion for serving others – and all these years later, he stills feels confident he made the right choice for a lifelong career.
