Dr. Shirin Mullen, DDS, MS Pediatric Dentist

I am a pediatric dentist who is passionate about helping children have positive dental experiences and healthy smiles. I embrace my profession with joy and happiness because I love working with children. I enjoy forming lifelong relationships with my patients based on trust, kindness and compassion. My goal is to be a positive influence in children’s lives and to empower them to take pride in their smiles and their oral health.

I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Texas in Austin. I  received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). I completed 3 additional years of Pediatric Dental Residency and earned a MS in Oral and Craniofacial Sciences at UCSF.

Service to my community is very important to my life. As an Albert Schweitzer Fellow, I provided oral health education to over 400 foster and inner-city children at Camp Mendocino. I continue service to children in the community through the Boys and Girls clubs and other community organizations.

My daughter came in for her first cleaning and check-up today and Dr. Mullen and her team made it a great first visit! The front staff is super welcoming and friendly and the Halloween decorations are soooo cute! I can tell Dr. Mullen and the whole staff really care about the patients and Jennifer S. made it an easy first visit for my little one

My daughters (ages 6 and 2) look forward to visiting the dentist and brushing their teeth. Dr. Mullen was extremely helpful with helping my older daughter stop thumb-sucking without suggesting any negative approaches involving fear/discomfort or shame. She partners with parents instead of blaming or shaming, and is wonderfully friendly and kind. Can't say enough good things about the office. We love it!
