Meet Dr. Lisa Mulkin, a comprehensive and compassionate family dentist, and the staff of Lake Country Dental

A dental practice conveniently located in the heart of Geneva, NY.

Sharing a similar philosophy and commitment to patient care, Dr. Mulkin purchased the practice of Ralph DeFelice, DDS, PC, upon his retirement and renamed it Lake Country Dental to reflect her love of nature. Interestingly, for decades, the practice has been and continues to be one of the only dental offices in Geneva that offers the latest in dental technology, including CEREC.

Dr. Lisa Mulkin

Dr. Lisa Mulkin, DDS

Dr. Lisa Mulkin was born and raised in Wellsville, NY. From the age of nine, she knew that she wanted to be a dentist. She attended SUNY Geneseo and graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. From there, she attended SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 2002.

Dr. Mulkin completed her general practice residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Care Center in Syracuse, NY. She then worked for a general dentistry practice in Dayton, OH, and, after relocating to Rochester, spent five years at Elmwood Dental Group. Dr. Mulkin is President of the Ontario Country Dental Society and is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), New York State Dental Society, Seventh District Dental Society and Academy of General Dentistry. She also has received continuing dental education from The Dawson Academy - a postgraduate educational and clinical research facility.

Dr. Mulkin seeks to understand the whole patient and not to react to just a single dental problem or concern. Because she comes from a family of educators, her patient care philosophy centers on educating the patient so the patient can choose the direction of their own dental health care. Since the health of your mouth is connected to the overall health of your body, Dr. Mulkin understands the comprehensive nature of every case and takes into consideration all the variables to present the best treatment plan for the patient.

Dr. Mulkin enjoys the outdoors and her interests include hiking, nature photography (her very own photography is used throughout this website), bird watching, gardening, hot air ballooning, and making maple syrup—ask her, she may even let you taste test. She is married to Dr. Joshua Souweine, also a dentist, and they have a black Labrador Retriever named Bailey.
