Dr. Paulen and her entire staff at Proud Smiles are like the extended family you didn’t even know you had. From the moment you walk in the front door until the minute you leave, YOU are their focus. When I came to see Dr. Paulen 3 years ago, I had quite an extensive “to do” list. I was embarrassed about it for sure, but she and her staff were quick to put me at ease. All needed procedures were discussed in length and prioritized, and after a financial consultation I knew upfront what to expect. Cavities, crowns, gum surgery, implants (referred out), teeth straightening with Invisilign, and teeth whitening have now been complete. But the biggest surprise for me was the bite adjustment Dr. Paulen’s been focusing on. Once that was completed, I was fitted with a bite night guard to eliminate teeth clenching. To my surprise and delight, ALL my headaches have gone away! This has been invaluable for my well- being to say the least. You can find dental happiness at Proud Smiles with Dr. Paulen!

Amazing service. I damaged several teeth in a fall while traveling. Dr. Paulen was able to install 4 caps for me. They look great and feel like my natural teeth. I could not be happier.

I woke up in the middle of the night with a horrible toothache, and ended up showing up to Proudsmiles, without an appointment, AND about 15 minutes before they opened in desperation and pain. They immediately took AMAZING care of me, true lifesavers! The staff was awesome, from the hugs to the medical treatment and consultation. She even called me…
