What Sets Us Apart

What sets us apart? We make people feel comfortable (even happy!) going to the dentist. Whether you’re a child on your first visit, an adult plagued by a lifetime of anxiety, or just someone looking for good dentistry, our dentists take the time to make it right for you.

There’s no shaming for not flossing or high-pressure sales jobs. Just a friendly group of people doing what they love and making a difference in our patients' lives and health every day.

Patients appreciate the combination of our neighborly, casual atmosphere with state-of-the-art dentistry and equipment. One of our most recent additions has been our dental laser. Our dentists are seeing great success using his laser for no-shot, no-pain fillings.

Our Philosophy of Care

If you were to ask any of our patients why they chose Dr. Bob Maley Family Dentistry as their dental home, they would likely tell you that it’s because they are first a person and then a patient in our office. Before we ever look into your mouth, we take the time to listen to what comes out of it.

We are a neighborhood family dental practice, so the families who come to us are our friends, and we put a premium on building meaningful and lasting relationships with the person behind each beautiful smile we help to create.

Nine months after bringing Dr. Ben Thomas to the practice, Dr. Maley, team and patients give a unanimous Thumbs Up!

“I feel like I got the first round draft pick,” says Dr. Maley. “After a long search for someone I could trust to care for our patients in the way we’ve become known for, I hit the bullseye!”

Bringing on Dr. Thomas has allowed our office to increase appointment availability by expanding hours on Wednesday evenings and Fridays. But the biggest benefit according to Dr. Maley is being able to share dentistry. “I love what I do, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being able to talk through cases with Ben. I’ve got experience I can share, but I’ve also learned a lot from him.”

Once patients realized Dr. Maley has no intention of retiring anytime soon, they’ve been very enthusiastic about “the young guy” as they call him highlighting his professionalism, great communication skills, and ability to work with kids.

One patient recently summed it up in an online review, “Dr. Ben is a Keeper!”

We couldn’t agree more.
