About Dr. Peter Boulden

Dr. Peter Boulden knows smiles have the power to change lives—he’s transformed more than 1,200 of them as one of the most credentialed cosmetic dentists in the world. Recognized in the greater Atlanta area as the “go-to” dentist for high-end cosmetic procedures, Dr. Boulden is the dental professional of choice for celebrities, athletes and prominent community leaders.

Though his patients’ smiles may dazzle, Dr. Boulden’s practice is about far more than glitz and glam. He maintains an extensive list of accomplishments within his industry, namely the prestigious distinction of Fellow to the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics, part of the Smile Source network.

The Academy is comprised of the most renowned cosmetic dentists in the world, committed to continued education, rigorous attention to detail and all-around excellence in the field of cosmetic dentistry. He also serves on the Academy’s Advisory Board. He has received his Fellowship in the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics and the Academy of General Dentistry.


Dr. Boulden’s Passions

Dr. Boulden is passionate about mastering the relationship between a person’s smile and facial symmetry, consistently seeking out new technologies to make him even more proficient at his craft. When he can’t find them, he creates them himself; Dr. Boulden has developed three iOS apps that complement his cosmetic procedures in diverse ways. The Botox Charting App helps dental professionals document and chart Botox procedures in a simplified manner using an iPad. The Smile Design Book was developed in conjunction with Phoenix cosmetic dentist Dr. Trent Smallwood and helps dentists communicate smile choices when designing smiles for their patients. The Facial Thirds app helps determine balance in facial vertical thirds of the face for perfect harmony and balance, a technique first mastered by Leonardo da Vinci.

When he’s not working his mandibular magic, Dr. Boulden enjoys spending time with his wife, Emily Dees Boulden, owner of high-end clothing boutique SWANK and star of the debut FYI network show Get Swank’d. The Bouldens reside in Sandy Springs and have three children, daughters Amzie and Atley and son Brax. What does one of the world’s most credentialed dentists do for fun? Dr. Boulden spends nearly every weekend running adventure races, riding his dirt bike on bumpy back roads and pursuing other adrenaline-inducing experiences, including his new favorite pastime, kiteboarding.
