ALIGN is an assembled team of professionals that brings together 20+ years of experience in designing and executing dental and dental-specialty facilities; and the necessary experience and credentials to do that anywhere in the United States. Under the leadership of partners Tim Kuhlman and Dan Mullin, our one firm brings together architectural design, engineering, interior design, landscape design – whatever your project needs – all under one roof to expertly execute the project and to bring experience-based answers to the question; How is your facility functioning and holding up after 5 years? 10 years? 20 years? That knowledge is literally built-in to every design we do.

Your team will also include equipment professionals, and of course your contractor. We are eager to work with these experts in both the design and construction of your facility. There are many smart people out there, and welcoming individuals to ‘do what they do best’ is a key component of a successful project.

Teaming with Dan and creating ALIGN represents the realization of a goal; to provide doctors with experience, expertise, and capability all in one firm.

A Personal Favorite

While practicing at Leo A Daly, the young architects in the office were given a chance to come up with a design entry for a national competition; a new Veterans Memorial next to the State Capital in Jefferson City, MO. My stepped waterfall and reflecting pool concept won it! A real honor! – Tim

A Personal Favorite

I’m still personally drawn to the concepts of Sea Ranch, where buildings sit ‘gently’ on their special site. It was a small-footprint concept developed in the late 60’s and was well ahead of its time. This is my house. – Dan
