Daniel J. Mulligan D.D.S.- Family Dentistry

For over 25 years I have been fortunate enough to practice family dentistry in Chesterfield, Virginia.   A graduate of Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, my wife and I chose to relocate to the Richmond area  because of its friendly people, great weather and strong economy.  Although there have been many changes during past years, my goal as a dentist has always been to perform the best dentistry possible, treating  patients as I would like myself or  family treated.  My  entire team supports me in this mission and we work hard to make sure patients feel confident and comfortable when in our office.  We ask new patients plenty of questions to learn more about their dental health goals and to build trust by really listening to them.  When treatment is recommended, the procedure  is  explained carefully and various payment options explored.  We believe dentistry should be both excellent and affordable! 

Years of experience and training coupled with regular continuing education has made  it possible for our office to offer modern hi tech approaches to dentistry. For example, we use digital xrays which  cuts down on radiation exposure by 80% and a  Kavo diagnodent  (laser cavity detector) able to identify decay with 86% more accuracy than traditional  approaches. Short term braces and dental implant crowns are  great alternatives for treating crooked or missing teeth. A thorough listing of our services is included elsewhere on this site.

We are very appreciative of the many patients who have been with us for ten, fifteen or even 20 or  more years.  It brightens our day when one of them refers a friend or recalls a time when our efforts resulted in a big help (eg. repairing a broken partial on a Saturday morning just before a wedding).  We are very committed to showing patients -YOU- they are valued. One  way to do this is to seat patients on time or at least within ten minutes of the scheduled time.  You WILL hear an apology from me if  that doesn't happen.  Your time is as important as ours and we  show respect for that.   We strive to see patients with emergencies on the same day they call and make follow-up  calls to  patients following any difficult procedures. When you call the office during business hours we try really hard to answer within a few rings and there is no need to  "listen to our menu options."  We offer amenities such as free wi-fi, neck pillows or blankets, coffee, hot chocolate or tea made with a Keurig coffee maker and take-home mini chap sticks.  You are important in this practice and these are just a few examples of ways that  we show it. When you walk into our office we want you to feel confident that  problems will be solved, pain relieved  and  overall health  improved.

This website has many articles about dentistry  with answers to frequently asked questions. We  want  it to be easy for you to learn about dental health  since educated patients make better decisions about dentistry.  If questions remain you can, of course,  call or email us.  We will be happy to help you.  

Convenience is  important when  selecting a dentist and we think our location is great.  Our office is  in Chesterfield County on  Midlothian Turnpike in the Arch Village Shopping Center (near the Powhite Parkway).  Parking is plentiful; more  details  can be found within our web site but you can also just contact  us at 804-320-1153 or  info@danmulligandds.   We look forward to seeing  you soon!

Dr. Mulligan and his staff are very professional and extremely nice. I had a few fillings done and some teeth cleaning. All of the procedures I had done were painless and did not take long. It's also very easy to get an appointment and rarely do you have to wait to see Dr. Mulligan. He has a great personality and you can tell he really cares about his patients without judgement. If you visit, you won't be disappointed. I also recommend him if you have a dental phobia. C.Dubose


I have been with Dr. Mulligan since he opened and was in his old office building. In all the years he has never changed. I am lucky to find him and his caring staff. He is the only Dr. that my family never complained about going to.

I was recommended to Dr. Mulligan because I had so many terrible dentists in the past. My friend told me he was the best dentist she knows and I agree. He is gentle, kind, and understanding that some patients are scared of needles. He also takes an interest in all his patients. His whole is as kind as he is. He is not just a dentist, but a first class dentist and first class person as well.
