Happy Holidays from Dr. Mullen, Dr. Stringer, and the entire team! We would like to wish you a Happy New Year and thank you for being our patient. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful group of patients who call our practice theirs! Thank you for allowing us to serve you and we look forward to seeing you in 2014!

New Year, New Name!

We decided to change our name. We hope you like it. Beginning in 2014, our practice will be called Pearlfection Dentistry Frederick, Maryland - Dr. Mullen and Dr. Stringer! Or Pearlfection Dentistry for short, so please don't hang up when someone answers the phone a little differently. Our outstanding service, people, and atmosphere will remain the same, just under a different name. As we hope you'll realize, the meaning behind the name is Pearl = teeth and Fection = our strive for perfection in every aspect of our practice and patient care. We thought it was catchy.

Dr. Patel - Endodontist & Root Canal Dentist in Frederick, MarylandDr Patel joined the Dental Practice of Dr Mullen and Stringer in April of 2013.  To prepare for the addition of Dr Patel, the decision was made to invest in the most modern root canal equipment on the market.  The practice purchased an advanced endodontic microscope built by Micronix and specialty endodontic drill, manufactured by WaveOne®, to ensure we had the best equipment on the market.  We also invested in digital x-ray sensors and large screen monitors and intraoral cameras, so diagnostics could be done instantaneously.  These new pieces of equipment and technology allow the doctor and his assistant to perform root canals with the most modern dental equipment and therefore give the patient the greatest prognosis of a good clinical outcome.

We asked Dr EJ Stringer why the decision was made to bring on another doctor.  She said “The decision to bring on Dr Patel was driven by our patients request to have more procedures done at the practice.  In the past, we sent out most of our root canals out to endodonists across town.  Our patients never really liked having to do that and they just felt more comfortable staying at our practice on Thomas Johnson Drive.  Now instead of going out to have root canals done, we’ll have them all performed in house.  By bringing on Dr Patel, we are able to have a specialist in the practice who is truly one of the best endodontists in the state.  Our practice and our patients are very lucky to have him”
