 “I know  I work hard at improving my knowledge and skills, but the biggest key for me has been to learn how to communicate well to my patients and understand their needs.  I believe that good rapport is the foundation of quality dental care and look forward to meeting you in the future.”  - Tony

Dr. Malek believes that staying on the forefront of dentistry and working closely with his patients are the keys to providing them with exceptional periodontal and dental implant care.  Every year he goes well beyond the continuing education requirements of Minnesota, to ensure he knows the latest techniques in both periodontics and dental implants. 

“I do a great deal to stay current in dentistry but most important is understanding what the patient needs and providing it to him/her in the most esthetic and comfortable way.   I’m here to give my patients the best periodontal and implant outcomes possible.”
