Dr. Julia Mulnick, DDS, FICOI, FAGDwas born and raised in California. After moving to North Carolina in 1991, she graduated top of her class with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. She practiced dental hygiene in private practice for more than 12 years and devoted a year as a clinical instructor at the University of Chapel Hill for first-and second-year dental hygiene students. She earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from UNC-Chapel Hill and is now a partnered dentist at Gentle Family Dentistry in Wake Forest, NC.
Her early volunteer experience with the NC Missions of Mercy clinics and international dental experiences in Mexico and Guatemala emphasized the power of genuine care and compassion for people and their smiles. Her drive for knowledge empowers her to provide the best techniques, technologies and materials to her patient’s oral health and overall well-being.
For the last 27 years, Dr. Mulnick has committed herself to advanced dental education, earning her Fellowship in the International Congress of Implantologists in 2017. In 2020, Dr. Mulnick completed the Advanced Curriculum in The Dawson Academy and became a Dawson Academy Scholar. In 2021, Dr. Mulnick completed over 500 hours of continuing education in the 16 disciplines of general dentistry to apply for and pass the comprehensive exam and was awarded her Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), which less than 10% of general dentists achieve.
When Dr. Mulnick is not in the office, she trains for triathlons and ultra-marathon events. She is currently training for her first 50-mile run in early 2022. She has an exceptionally supportive husband, Dave, and two grown children who work in Charlotte and Bethesda. She has three stepchildren in Raleigh, NC and Charleston, SC, and is lucky to have her beautiful granddaughter nearby to keep her laughing and full of “Gigi pride.”
