Meet Dr. Joseph Mullen

Dr. Joseph Mullen is an orthodontist who loves living and practicing on the Westside. He graduated summa cum laude from Brigham Young University with a degree in business marketing and subsequently completed his dental school training at UCLA, where he graduated magna cum laude and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) Dental Honors Society. After completing dental school, he remained at UCLA to complete his 3-year residency training in orthodontics, where he served as chief resident. While at UCLA he also completed a master’s degree in oral biology, where he organized a grant-funded clinical trial of different products to reduce the severity of early cavities in patients treated with braces.

In addition to working in private practice at Culver City Orthodontics, Dr. Mullen works two days a week as a part-time faculty at the UCLA School of Dentistry in the Orthodontics department. He loves teaching residents in the clinic and fulfills administrative duties within the section of orthodontics. As part of his training at UCLA, Dr. Mullen treated patients with craniofacial anomalies, including cleft lip and palate, at the Ronald Reagan Medical Center and loves treating these special children and youth.

As an artist and painter, Dr. Mullen has always loved capturing the faces, expressions, and personalities of his subjects with a pencil and brush. He loves being an orthodontist because it allows him to craft and transform a person’s smile in real life to help their individual light shine through. Dr. Mullen loves treating and interacting with his patients every day, and his sincere wish is that each child and adult comes away from their appointments feeling valued and confident about themselves.

Dr. Mullen is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontics, the American Dental Association, and the West LA Dental Society. He enjoys participating in the local dental community and keeping up to date on the latest advances in the field of orthodontics through his professional and university affiliations.


Dr. Mullen and his wife, Ana-Lisa, have three wonderful children – Henry, Daniel, and Linnea. They love spending time together as a family and are actively engaged in their local school and church communities. Dr. Mullen’s personal interests include watercolor painting, music, swing dancing, and singing Disney songs with his kids.

"I grew up in Granite Bay, CA and graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in business management. I then moved to sunny Los Angeles to complete both dental school and my orthodontic residency at UCLA. My wife and I have three wonderful children (ages 7, 4, and 2) who bring us joy and keep us busy. We love spending time together as a family and serving together in our local and church communities. My personal interests include watercolor painting, music, swing dancing, and singing Disney songs with my kids."
