Botox Charting App – Dr. Boulden does a TON of botox applications, especially for treating TMD and Bruxism (as well as Botox cosmetic for forehead, eyes, etc). This app helps the professional document and chart using the power of an iPad.
Smile Design Book – Working closely with Dr. Trent Smallwood, a Phoenix cosmetic dentist, Dr. Boulden developed an App to help other cosmetic dentists communicate smile choices when designing smiles for their patients.
Facial Thirds- Designed on the principles of Leonardo da Vinci. Dr Boulden designed an app that helps determine balance in facial vertical thirds of the face for evaluating harmony and balance. Since the teeth help support the lower third of the face, when they becomes extremely worn down this causes an imbalance (deficient lower third) and can make one look prematurely old.

I visited Atlanta Dental Spa a couple weeks ago and I was blown away by how friendly the staff and overall service was, in addition to the fact the location is gorgeous. It has a lounge with iMacs, drinks, and snacks! I highly recommend Atlanta Dental Spa to everyone and anyone that is looking for a 5 star staff + service + location! Do yourself a favor and make an appointment today, you will thank me later.

I came in to get a cleaning and a full mouth exam so I can start my journey to a healthier smile. When I got there literally 5mins I was in the back (no long waiting!) I was in and out with no pain. Brittney was my hygienist and she was wonderful. She went into great details about my mouth situation, that I didn't have any questions to ask before I left. She was very personable and I felt like I knew her my whole life.

Recently moved to Atlanta and needed to find a new dentist. I definitely picked the right one! From the moment I walked in it was a great experience. The wait was not long at all and they offer a variety of refreshments and computers to utilize while you wait. Everything was extremely clean and had a spa feel to it which eased my mind as the dentist is never something to look forward to. Overall this dental establishment is probably the best in Atlanta and I will definitely be referring anyone interested.
