Meet Dr. Mullendore
Dr. Mullendore began life as an Indiana Hoosier and lived the first half of his life in and around the greater Indianapolis area.

Dr. Andrew Mullendore began his professional education at Miami of Ohio, where he graduated Cum Laude with a BA in Zoology and was a member of the National Honor Society. His college experience was not entirely academic. He swam on the Miami University Varsity Swim Team and received an athletic scholarship. As an Indiana native, Dr. Mullendore was consequently accepted into Indiana University School of Dentistry.

During the 6-year dual-degree program, he also attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, and earned his Medical Degree, graduating Cum Laude. Dr. Mullendore subsequently joined a group practice in Columbus, Ohio. It was there that he was introduced to Dr. Douglas Von Kaenel, and the vision of East Columbus Oral Surgery Specialists began.
