Meet Mandalene Mirkhah, DDS
Dr Mirkhah was born and raised right here in Phoenix, Arizona. In fact, she grew up on 24th street and Camelback just 10 minutes from the practice.
"I always knew I wanted to own a practice in the community in which I grew up and be able to give back and serve."
Both of Dr. Mirkhah's parents stressed education. And Dr. Mirkhah knew at an early age that she wanted a career that involved working with people. In college, she volunteered in a dental clinic at the county hospital which exposed her to the underserved population and their needs with dental treatment. She also worked in a dental lab after college prior to her Master's program allowing her a one-of-a-kind behind the scene glimpse into what goes into making dentures, crowns, and retainers.
After she graduated from ASU, she attended Tulane University where she received her masters in molecular and cellular biology. From there she attended NYU Dental school followed by a 1-year general practice residency at the VA in New Jersey.
Dr. Mirkhah values free time with family
Dr. Mirkhah met her husband in college, and they have been married for ten years. They have two daughters, one in elementary school and one in preschool. The oldest is involved in soccer, ballet, and girl scouts. She is also learning a second language. The youngest involved in ballet and gymnastics. And they have two furry dog family members as well.
