About Dr. Mai

From the very beginning at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, Dr. Mai prepared himself to be a premier dental caregiver and provide the most effective, personalized and comfortable treatments possible for his patients. Over the past 17 years, Dr. Mai’s expertise has grown to include virtually all restorative, preventive and cosmetic dental procedures and, when needed, in combination with various forms of conscious sedation, including intravenous. As a result, Dr. Mai has earned some of the highest patient ratings in the region.

Outside of his practice, Dr. Mai deeply enjoys personal time with his son, traveling and working on personal fitness.

Six years ago Dr. Hultgren and his wife moved to St. Petersburg and, along with their dog, love to spend as much fitness and fun time outdoors as possible. This especially extends to winters when they tackle downhill skiing and summers of trekking the mountains of the world.
