Dr. Carl Bullen is a native of Idaho Falls, Idaho. He graduated from Brigham Young University in 1980, married his wife, Joan, and moved to Richmond, Virginia where he attended the Medical College of Virginia School of Dental Medicine. After graduating in 1984 with a DDS degree, Dr. Bullen continued his training as a Resident in the Department of Pediatric Dentistry, also at the Medical College of Virginia, and graduated from there in 1986 as a Specialist in Children's Dentistry. It was during this time, working with children and young adults, that he recognized the truly life-changing benefits that Orthodontics could have on a person's life, and made the decision to specialize in Orthodontics.
After a two year residency in the Department of Orthodontics at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, Dr. Bullen, along with his wife and 4 children, made the move to Mojave County, Arizona., to begin his professional career.
Dr. Bullen remembers stepping out of the U-Haul into 120 degrees heat and wondering if they had made the right decision. Now, over 25 years later, his answer is absolutely yes! There have been so many wonderful memories and patients who have become life long friends. It has truly been a wonderful journey and career thus far.
