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!
