Dr. Paulen and her team found my smile for me.  They are the most amazing, professional and talented individuals you could ever imagine. I neglected my dental needs for years and I finally reached the point that I was embarrassed to speak to people in person. I called Dr. Paulen’s office and I was treated with no judgement, but encouraging words.  In just two visits my life changed.  While I still have more work ahead of me, I am super confident Dr. Paulen and her dream team will be there with me every step of the way.  They are my super heroes!!!!

The best ever, pain free and comfortable, does all kinds of work! She has saved my teeth ravaged by the side effects of taking meds for chronic pain. As bad as it is to always have dry mouth, it never occurred to me that it causes cavities even though I floss and brush twice daily! If not for Dr. B. Paulen, I probably would have no teeth left! The procedures are painless and usually fun spending time visiting with all my friends that work there. And you’re welcome to a free cup of tea!

Danl G. from Stone Mountain, GA (Source: Yelp)


I love my appointments here! Never pain, never trouble, fes like home. Always treated as I’m welcome and I belong here with all these cheerful smiling people. Great treatment and always friendly. Dr. Paulen has saved my teeth and given me my smile back! Cannot but brag about how wonderful I feel about this place. Hygienist and all the people here make you glad not to have missed my appointment!

Morganne W. from Alpharetta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I have been with this dental office for a few years now and it was the best decision I have made. I came here first out of convenience and then I just fell in love with the staff. Jasmine, is my hygienist and she is amazing, friendly, knowledgable and just so pleasant to be around.  Dr. Pauline is patient and also extremely knowledgable. She takes the time to inform and confront the issues you may have but is the best dentist I’ve seen in years. The front desk staff is equally wonderful, they know my name when I walk in and I never have to wait. Appointment times are scheduled and convenient to take make. I don’t have to remember or do anything when I’m there- I know I’m taken care of.
I wouldn’t change offices of you paid me to!

The staff is friendly, knowledgable, and patient. They were very empathetic of my anxiety and did everything they could for me to be comfortable. Dr. Paulen was beyond ready for my appointment with her – She had informational slides about my condition ready and explained everything thoroughly. Excellent experience.

Dr. Paulen has a very nice office . She, as well as her staff , are very professional and personable . My first patient visit with them was very  thorough and unlike any I have ever had elsewhere . She talked me through everything and made sure I had an understanding of what was going on and why . Prior to rendering any services I was made aware of my plan of care , how much it would cost and my options for payment . This was helpful as a lot of other places will provide you care and bill you later. I felt very involved in the whole process and appreciated my options being presented prior to any services being rendered .The office is very technologically advanced and well kept overall .

Amber M. from Auburn, AL (Source: Yelp)


I have had three visits at Proud Smile so far & have really been happy with the service! Everyone is so nice, & made me feel comfortable. I was very apprehensive of a new dentist as I had went to the same one all my life but moved to Atlanta, & they have given me such a great experience! I would recommend them to anyone.

I wish I could give 10 stars! Dr. Brenda Paulen and her team are absolutely amazing! When I came in for my appointment I was greeted by two of the sweetest ladies at the front desk; Christine & Karen. I found Proud Smiles from their website, and saw they did cosmetic dentistry. After looking at past patients’ before & after photos, and seeing their transformations. I knew I had to go in and meet with Dr. Paulen. From the time I called in to make my appointment to the day I came in. I had the best experience! With the help of Dr. Paulen & her Dental Assistant Krissy. They truly transformed my smile. They transformed one of my biggest insecurities into a Smile I can be Proud of! I am so in love with my results Dr.Paulen was able to acheive. If you want someone who will; hear your concerns, consult with you about your options, and will combine their years of experience with their passion for perfection .. then Proud Smiles is for you!

Everyone at Proud Smiles is so kind, nice, and professional. They immediately made me feel comfortable and welcome the moment I walked in the door. I’m at the beginning of a long road of having several dental procedures done, but I feel confident and relaxed with Dr. Paulen and her staff taking care of me! If you are looking for a dentist in the Atlanta area who really listens to your concerns and does everything possible to help you, this is the place for you!!

I flew into Atlanta because mom needed extensive dental work.  I was so impressed when she took me to meet Dr. Paulen and her staff.  They were amazing and made mom so comfortable.  They even gave me a gift certificate to get my nails done next door ~ what a treat.  I could not be happier.  Mom had no pain and we were out on the town the next night ~ Thank you Dr. Paulen!

Dr. Paulen is the ultimate professional and trains her staff to her high standards as well. Things run smoothly and your personal needs are addressed. From a warm blanket if needed, to appointments at a variety of times customized to your work schedule, all make for a wonderfully unique experience.

This is the Best dental office in the metro Atlanta area— and in my opinion, on the east coast. Top notch everything: customer service, skills, dental equipment, and professionalism. Dr. Paulen continuously educates herself to remain cutting edge on all the best materials and techniques. Jasmin is an amazingly precise and gentle dental hygienist. Christine and Karen who work the front desk are super helpful and friendly. Every single person who works in this office is the best of the best. If you want a smile to be proud of and you want it to be a great experience, Dr. Paulen is your dentist.

Beware !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Proud Smiles Dental has extremely high prices, compared to other dental practices. They have limited hours, and they want to take as much money in as little time as possible from each customer. I had several procedures done until I found out I was being ripped off. I also had a crown done and it was not done properly, I still have pain and discomfort, but I am not confident that Dr.Paulen can fix it. Stay Away !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Going down to one car, I had to find a dentist nearby in Sandy Springs. Dr. Paulen is amazing! I can tell she and everyone else that works at Proud Smiles Dental really cares about me and my teeth. I feel so fortunate. Sometimes fate has a way of working things out for the best! Thank you Proud Smiles Dental!

If you are looking for a top notch dental practice, I highly recommend Proud Smiles Dental. Dr. Paulen and her team, from the front desk staff, to Jasmine, her hygienist, made me feel very welcome and well cared for. Jasmine did an excellent job which is not easy for patients like me with sensitive gum tissue. Dr. Paulen provided much appreciated guidance regarding the management of my orthodontic health. It is obvious that she and her great staff genuinely care for their patients. Call them for appointment today!

Dr. Paulen and her staff are amazing! I went in for an unplanned root canal, and could not have been more pleased with the experience. They picked up my call before hours, got me in that same morning, took care of my root canal, and I felt zero pain! That’s the first time I’ve had a root canal with zero pain or discomfort (I’ve had two prior to that). As someone who generally dislikes all dental visits, I went in thinking this was going to be terrible as well. But I’m so happy that Dr. Paulen proved me wrong! She and her team are amazingly warm, friendly, personable, and just fun to be around. I didn’t think I’d be laughing and taking photos with the staff after a root canal (who does that?!?). Overall I give them an A+ and recommend them to anyone who wants their dental visit to be smooth, hassle free, quick, and as enjoyable as humanly possible! – Matthew

Showed up here after not being in to a Dentist for a year and a half. The front desk ladies were incredibly helpful and responsive. Let me do my paperwork before I came in (Recommend). which let me get in and out much faster. They then did an analysis of what was needed and explained my payment responsibilities and options well before the work was done. the work was quick and afterwards they were incredibly informative. Everyone hates going to the dentist but I have never left the dentist in a better mood than when I went in. This was a first. 10/10 would recommend. Location is just off 285 on Roswell road and it is well worth the drive.

I’ve been seeing Dr Paulen and team for over 12 years! We’ve done a lot together: Invisalign, whitening, replace mercury fillings, a crown or two, but the most important is the regular preventative hygiene. Recently I said to Jasmin, “that was fast,” and Dr Paulen chimed in, “that’s because you take good care of your teeth.” I look forward to my visits three times a year; it’s always good to see old friends. People often compliment my smile and I say, thanks to Proud Smiles Dental!

I woke up in the middle of the night with a horrible toothache, and ended up showing up to Proudsmiles, without an appointment, AND about 15 minutes before they opened in desperation and pain. They immediately took AMAZING care of me, true lifesavers! The staff was awesome, from the hugs to the medical treatment and consultation. She even called me later that evening to check on me. Amazing service! You won’t be disappointed.

I just had the best dentist experience ever. I have put off going anywhere for over 7 years now…and finally a cracked tooth forced me to find a place to go. I was so lucky to find Proud Smiles. I really can’t say enough about how well I was treated by every single member of the staff. I’m sure this part was just lucky – but I was able to get in for a consultation in a single day and was able to have procedures done the day after that. I am now very motivated to take care of many years of ….I won’t say neglect…but I surely wasn’t doing the things I should have been…and I feel like I have a caring dental home where I can work through those all of those things and will receive top of the line care. Dr. Paulen was fantastic!

Haley M. from Marietta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful experience from start to finish. Dr. Paulen and her staff were extremely professional, thorough, and helpful during my first visit. She took extra time to ask questions and get to know my dental history, experiences and concerns moving forward. I felt completely comfortable at every moment. Karen and Chrissy were both so kind and went above and beyond to answer my questions fully. My fear of the dentist office is officially alleviated after my visit to Proud Smiles. Highly recommend!

Snooping S. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Still getting the smile right with Dr. Paulen and her staff. EVERY SINGLE person in the office is SO kind and do everything to make you comfortable. I had to have an oral laser procedure (fracendectamy sp??) yesterday, and I DID NOT FEEL ANYTHING!!! I can’t believe how comfortable they made me and numbed me up so well, I AGAIN didn’t feel A THING!!! They gave me fair warning of some discomfort following the procedure, but it was less than what they told me. Yeah!! This practice should be the model for dentistry!!! Kind, informative, non-judgmental, efficient, and does EVERYTHING to make your visits as comfortable as possible. I could not have asked for a better dentist and I will be her patient for life!!! Thank you Dr. Paulen and your whole team! Much gratitude, Amy

Morgan E. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


AMAZING STAFF! So sweet and kind, very informative and knowledgeable.  I was so scared to have any work done, and Dr. Paulen dis everything she could to make it easier for me- even put on soothing music through noise canceling headphones so I couldn’t hear the drill. And since then, I’ve had no pain in that tooth, and can’t even tell the work was ever done. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area!

I went to Proud Smiles this morning to have a fever blister treated. I had this treated 6 years ago by another dentist and it was awfully painful. Dr Paulen treated my blister without using the numbing gel and I felt nothing a slight tingle and that was it!!! If you suffer from fever blisters this is a one time treatment that is NOT painful! Dr Paulen is the best!!

This was the best customer service experience ever! I highly recommend this office for dental care. Very family oriented atmosphere. My first visit was exceptional all of my needs were met . The staff went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable during my visit. Thank you Proud Smile Dental !!!

Marie G. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Paulen and her staff are awesome. She is my first dentist in the Atlanta area. I came to her first and retain her as the dentist for my husband and myself. The staff make it easy to feel at ease at every appointment. The appointments are always kept on time with reminders via text and email. They are very much flexible with the schedule and with the payment plan. I definitely recommend Dr Paulen as the dentist for the whole family.

“You should consider getting your wisdom teeth removed”, every dentist’s famous last words. In my case, I needed my teeth removed because they never grew in properly. Earlier this year I had this procedure done at Proud Smiles Dental. Though I had the option to be put out, I decided they were just teeth so I stayed awake. That is why I went to Proud Smiles Dental. Brenda Paulen, D.M.D, removed my wisdom teeth and did a great job. When she numbed my jaw with Novocain, it was painless. Basically Dr. Paulen injects the Novocain into the gums almost like she’s massaging instead of pinching. If you’re in the market for a basic cleaning or any other dental work, go to Proud Smiles Dental. They don’t overbook clients and they’re very attentive to your needs.

Dr. Paulen is an amazing dentist. She saw me as more than “a mouth” and was clearly interested in my overall wellness while using cutting edge dentistry techniques, tools, and equipment. I’ve never seen an office more high tech. Because I’ve moved almost 30 times, I have seen a lot of dentists around the country. Dr Paulen is the very best dentist I have ever visited. She helped me really understand the the core issues that have caused my dental concerns and has helped me address them in a way that I feel will truly take care of my teeth and my health. She is very dedicated to continued education and gaining access to the newest and most effective information/techniques/tools to provide the best dental care possible. A colleague had told me how good she was. My personal experience confirms this as well. Dr. Paulen has left me feeling very well cared for. In her I have found an extremely knowledgeable and caring doctor who is a partnering with me for the long term health of my teeth. She has a very capable and friendly staff as well. Every person in her office is fantastic at their job. Each staff member seems to truly care about the patients and about each other. I am thrilled to have finally found Dr. Paulen and ProudSmiles. Can you tell I’m a raving fan?

This place it’s the best! I have issues going to the dentist like anxiety and I won’t mention some all of them. but Thats from having bad childhood experiences. I know I’m not the only one who went through that. But going here is so friendly and they take their time with you and explain everything that they’re doing. The office is very clean. The equipment is very up-to-date. Top of the line. I still have a little anxiety but not like I used to. I highly recommend this place if you need a dentist she is the person. And her office staff welcomes you at the front door with smiles.

It starts with the wonderful staff when you walk in to an amazing Dr. Paulen who really is a perfectionist and makes sure your smile is perfect. My teenage daughter needed a crown due to a tooth not being developed all the way. When she was a kid a dentist just build it up till she is done growing. It never matched her other teeth and was discolored. Dr. Paulen did a perfect job fixing it and nobody will ever know that she actually has a crown. Her smile is perfect and beautiful now. Thank you Dr. Paulen and thanks also to your friendly staff.

So excited to be starting a treatment plan here for my smile! The staff is amazing and just on my first visit I’m already more educated about healthy teeth and routines then ever before. Dr. Paulen explained things in def for me and I know she genuinely cares! Can’t wait to complete my smile journey here! – Keayra Wells

Personable and professional! Dr. Paulen and her staff were sensitive to my specific needs. I felt as if the entire staff made me their priority. I have never had a dentist who took the time to understand the impact that Lupus has on teeth, until I met Dr. Paulen. I walked in very skeptical of my experience, but left knowing I had found my forever dentist.

Denise King (Source: Google)


I love Dr. Paulen!!! This is the BEST dentist I have ever had!! The office staff, Christine and Karen are second to none. Jasmine is an outstanding hygienist who keeps my smile bright and clean! I never have to worry about whether my dental care. The professionalism and competence of Dr. Paulen and her staff have kept me coming for the past 4 years. Even though she is out of my insurance network, I’ve chosen that her services are well worth the extra cost. 🙂

Dr. Paulen is great! I’ve been a patient of hers for around 2 years now and absolutely no complaints from me. Only compliments! The staff is awesome and so friendly. I actually like coming to the dentist here just to chat with the office staff and all of the hygienists. I would one hundred percent recommend this dental office if you’re looking for a dentist that does a great job helping you keep your teeth healthy and friendly staff that make you feel welcome every time.
