Our Vision

Malek Periodontics Philosophy

Malek Periodontics is a patient-centered practice. We deliver comprehensive, specialized periodontal care in an environment that not only prioritizes the best dental health solutions available – but also respects our clients.

Periodontal Specialty

As a periodontist, Dr. Malek is a dentist with a specialty recognized by the American Dental Association. To become a periodontist, three years of specialized education after dental school is required, as well as extensive training. 


The fundamental practice of a periodontist consists of the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease. This encompasses a wide range of issues, such as gingivitis, receding gums, and loss of bone. They’re also specialists in the placement and maintenance of all dental implants, for one or more teeth.


Cosmetic periodontal procedures are also part of restoring smiles, and our practice works with each patient for an optimal outcome that blends aesthetics and oral health.

Services We Offer

Dr. Malek is able to work with patients in the following areas, always with a focus on conservative, tailored treatment that minimizes surgical procedures.
