I attended what I thought would be a brief consultation regarding a change in my bite. Dr. Malek, immediately had me in the chair. She assessed the situation and made a minor adjustment to my bite. Then we discussed the useof an orthotic device to relieve pressure while sleeping and discussed a second option. This is truly appreciated. The assistant was very kind and helpful, as well.

Dr. Malik called me after booking an emergency appointment and asked if I would like an earlier time. This was very helpful to me because I was in a lot of pain from a tooth infection that went from 0-100 ina matter of two days. The appointment was quick; took x-rays, wrote me an antibiotic prescription, then it was over. I only wish she had gone over my problem and the x-rays with me so I could fully understand what happened.

The website said she was experienced in all types of dental services. This was not true. She said she doesn't do extractions or able to split a bridge. Told me to go back to my original dentist. I told her hewas 300 miles away. She would refer me to an oral surgeon but couldn't say if he can do it and refused to consult with one so I would not have to waste money to find out the next dentist wouldn't do it. She gave me antibiotics. I told her what I normally took and she gave me penicillin. She changed it. I woul not recommend this dentist unless you have a simple cavity and then maybe not even that. It was like amateur hour with this dentist.

Early on a Saturday is a good time for an appointment if you don't want to wait around! Everyone was very friendly. And the tooth-cleaning was one of the most painless I've ever gotten! Also, the facility was easy to findand very clean. One thing caused me rate "good" on the bedside manner instead of "excellent": at three different points, the person cleaning my teeth went and talked to other people in hushed voices. It felt like they were keeping secrets from me. Which of course they were! I have no idea of the secrets were about me. But in any case, it made me feel slightly strange.

Office was very new, nice and clean, basically no weight time at all. Was a very quick cleaning, and they have the automated tools but still use some of the manual picks . X-rays were digital and very quick . Moretime could have been used to get to know me as a new patient or cover the pratice and what it offers or talk to me about General tooth care , but wasn't , but overall I would still definitely reccomend it as high quality clean place in the city for a cleaning

Very friendly staff. The front desk was very helpful in helping me figure out my dental insurance. Dr. Malik was very thorough and informative. I had a cleaning done and felt my mouth was left a little dirty with the stuffshe polished and cleaned my teeth with. This was annoying as I had to attend a meeting afterward and couldn't get the gunk out of my teeth, but my teeth do feel great! I felt really comfortable and there was no pain, pressure or issues. Super fast appointment! Will definitely be headin.g back for my 6 month cleaning and eventually invisalign

the office and receptionist is really nice...i came in for a routine cleaning and she also was able to tell me about my gum health and give me a few referrals. however, all she did from the cleaning was scraping teethclean and then a quick polish, and i am used to there being a little more work with cleaning my teeth. however, it was still pretty good.

She was very brief and down to business. I didn't get the impression that she paid much attention to me or my situation. It was the end of the day on a beautiful Saturday and I was the last patient andeveryone understandably wanted to get out of there. The hygienist and secretary were very warm and friendly and took an interest in my health and satisfaction, which I appreciate very much. I will be going back for a second appointment.

Excellent Dental visit... Dr. Malik was very professional and worked fast. She addressed my issues and we were able to get everything accomplished in one quick visit so I didn't have to come back at another date, which really made mehappy. Her work was gentle and very quick! The office was extremely clean and comfortable. I will be returning to her office again should I have any issues in the future and would recommend her to others!
