Dr. Brenda Paulen, D.M.D., is a native Atlantan and, as a second-generation dentist, she comes from a family dedicated to dentistry. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Emory University and her Doctorate of Dentistry from the University of Pennsylvania in 1984.
After serving metro-Atlanta for nearly twenty years, Dr. Paulen opened Proud Smiles Dental in Sandy Springs, in August 2002, with the specific vision of providing a more personal health-centered approach to dental care.
Trained in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Paulen has attended an extensive array of continuing education courses to remain current with the recent advances in dental treatment techniques and technology. This includes courses covering advanced endodontics (root canal treatments), implant restorations, and a special concentration of over 100 hours on treating occlusal (bite) conditions. Dr. Paulen was one of the first doctors in the Atlanta area to offer Invisalign invisible braces, and was also one of the first to use a digital impression process (iTero) that replaces the traditional putty-based approach.
