I now realize that going to the dentist does not have to be something to be apprehensive about. From the warm greeting you get when you walk in the door, to the most thorough cleaning of the teeth by the best hygienist to the review by Dr. Malaric before you leave, you know you have just received the best dental care possible. They don't just clean your teeth and check for cavities, they explain what you can do at home to keep your teeth healthy. Should there be a need for work beyond cleaning your teeth, you are in great hands with Dr. Malaric. She explains what is needed and then proceeds to make your teeth/gums be the best they can be. Thanks Dr. Malaric!
