Mirna Armaleh Caldwell, DMD

Mirna Armaleh Caldwell, DMD

Dr. Mirna grew up in Wakefield, Massachusetts and graduated from Wakefield High School. She graduated at the top of her class and played Varsity tennis.

She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology-Psychology from Tufts University in Massachusetts, where she received several academic scholarships. Her interests were far and wide, from Japanese Literature and Arabic to Neuroscience. In addition, she really liked working with people (especially children) and with her hands.

Dr. Mirna continued her education at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, one of the top New England schools for dentistry. She realized quickly that her dental skills with children came naturally and that minimizing their fears brought her joy. She went on to earn her specialty certificate in Pediatric Dentistry at Tufts University/New England Medical Center, an intense three year program focused on the growth and development of children and their unique needs. This additional three years of specialty training is what sets her apart from general or family dentists. As a pediatric dentist, she is also qualified to treat patients who have special mental, physical, or emotional needs.

Dr. Mirna is an Assistant Clinical Professor at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and the past President of the Tennessee Society of Pediatric Dentistry. She is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the Tennessee Dental Association.

Dr. Mirna Caldwell is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. This is a special distinction that not all pediatric dentists attain. An AAPD Fellow is a person who has contributed above and beyond in the field of pediatric dentistry and organized dentistry.

Dr. Mirna is married to Robert, a pediatric dentist and Nashville native. They have two beautiful and energetic children. They also work together at their main office in Nipper’s Corner in Nashville, called Caldwell Pediatric Dentistry.
