  • OBITUARY

    Dr. Jay S. Paulen had a life-long passion for dentistry. Through dentistry he expressed his artistic creativity, practiced technical agility, and was an entrepreneur and business man. He instilled his love of dentistry and business to his children. His daughter, Brenda, joined him in practice as a dentist. His son, Jeff, trained and built a large dental lab, New Image, that serves hundreds of dentists. His son, Kevin, built his own business with his wife, Oasis Landscapes & Irrigation. All their children work in their parents family businesses, carrying on the tradition.

    Dr. Jay Paulen was born August 23rd, 1932 in Bayonne NJ. He moved with his parents to Miami, FL in 1949 where he attended college, then to Atlanta to attend Emory University School of Dentistry, class of 1958. Here he met an Atlanta girl, Roselee Fogel. They married and raised their three children in the Toco Hills neighborhood.

    Jay loved photography, stained glass, building design, and wood working. He always had a project that pulled-in his children and neighbors to help. But, Jay was devoted to dentistry, practicing till he was 80. He was a member of the ADA, GDA, Hinman, and Alpha Omega. He served as a Trustee of the International Alpha Omega Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Jewish dental organization. Dr. Paulen was a major donor to the Emory University School of Dentistry, and through AO, to the Hadassah dental schools in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Dr. Jay participated, with his wife Roselee, on Flying Doctor missions, as well as local Mission of Mercy events. He volunteered many years at the Ben Massell Dental Clinic in downtown Atlanta.

    Dr. Jay Paulen is survived by Roselee Fogel Paulen; his children Dr. Brenda Paulen, Jeffrey Paulen, Kevin Paulen, and Robin Loewenstein; eleven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

    Brenda, Jeff, Kevin, and Mrs. Paulen, I’m so sorry for your loss. Dr. Paulen was such a smart and talented individual and a nice neighborhood dad. I remember his slideshow of Mexico, teaching me how to use a remote control on the first color TV I ever saw, how to smoosh bread and use it as bait so I could fish at the lake, and the amazing bedroom he built for Jeff complete with a ship’s porthole. May the countless memories of times you shared give you comfort now and always. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Randi
