Dr. Mangrum


“Live wisely, love well, and serve greatly.”

These words are Dr. Mangrum’s vision statement, and their sentiment has guided the direction of her life, career, and dreams, beginning with her pursuit of excellence in education, her work as a community leader and teacher, and the continued shaping of Petaluma Dental Group to be an innovative, eco-friendly, patient-centered dental practice.

When Dr. Mangrum purchased the well-established Petaluma Dental Group in 2009, she had a wealth of experiences behind her (including owning her own practice in Sonoma). With her vision statement to guide her, she knew she wanted take PDG to yet another level of whole-body dental wellness.

She has built a team of dedicated healthcare professionals who, like her, are committed to living wisely, loving well, and serving greatly. Dr. Mangrum wholly believes in the power of Petaluma Dental Group to positively impact their patients’ lives and their community through educational outreach and local events, continual training, eco-friendly practices, and above all, compassionate, whole-body dental wellness that puts the person first.
