Dr. Mullen was born and raised in Fayetteville, NC. His parents met at Methodist College then spent the entirety of their careers in the Cumberland County school system. In his youth, Dr. Mullen considered following in their footsteps but as he moved through his education, his childhood aspirations changed and he began exploring career options in health care. He soon discovered his passion for dentistry and has never looked back.
While in high school, Dr. Mullen met his future wife. They both attended the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he completed his undergraduate studies and obtained his dental doctorate as well. After graduating, he moved back to Fayetteville, where he completed an advanced education in general dentistry (AEGD) residency at the Fayetteville VA Medical Center. During his residency, his program was awarded the first and only perfect score ever granted by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation.
