I have never been able to relax at the dentist. I had a crown done today and have never been this relaxed through an entire dental appointment.
I've never felt more comfortable, more cared for at any other dentist. Dr. Malaker, Mary, Angela all put forth 200% to the comfort and care of their patients. Sterling Dental really does strive for gentle dentistry and as far as I'm concerned they have achieved that and more. Each time I come in I am treated like a friend and not like some assembly line, run of the mill patient. Coming to the dentist is now enjoyable instead of terrifying.
I, as most people have never been a fan of dental work however the experience that I had with Dr. Malaker and the entire staff at Sterling Dental Care was amazing. They are my rock stars and I will gladly come back, as well as tell all of my friends and family. Thank you!
A great fun place for kids and adults. They take most insurances and you get in sometimes that same week. The staff are funny and relieve stress and anxiety for young children by having the rooms decorated with Disney characters, inviting colors, a TV screen overhead to watch as you're lying back having your teeth worked on. You can select from many different video titles. They even have headphones. They can perform root canals, extractions, cleanings, braces, X-rays, and always have a dental gift bag for the kids upon leaving. They also send you appointment reminder cards in the mail and offer courtesy calls. My family has been going here since my kids started brushing their teeth. I love this place and so do my daughters. I recommend this dentist to everyone.
I have been taking my three children to Dr. Malaker for the last few years. I have never been to such an efficient, friendly medical office of any kind. If our appointment is for 3:00pm, we are leaving the parking lot by 3:30 at the latest. It is clean, modern, and all the staff are fun as well as polite. I love that they keep "family-friendly" hours. I've never had to take my children out of school for an appointment because the office is open later than 4:00pm! Thank you, Dr. Malaker and staff!
My family started going to Sterling Dental Care a few years ago and we are very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and how professional they all are while still being very friendly. We think he is the best dentist in Columbia, MO. Our son was about 3 when we started going there and did not like anyone messing around inside his mouth. They were great with him. They took the time to slowly gain his trust over a few visits by getting him used to letting them look inside his mouth, then "tickling" whatever teeth he would let them. Now he loves them also and looks forward to his visits to the dentist.
My family has been going to Sterling Dental since they opened. We love the staff and we love Dr. Malaker. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and they know me and my family by name when we come in. Dr. Malaker is good with the kids and is able to put them at ease when working on them. He even does braces so we were able to get our dental work and orthodontic work done at the same place! I would highly recommend Sterling Dental!
