Mindy: My name is Mindy; I'm a new patient of Dr. Malki. I've been here . . . this is my fifth time coming here. It was a big transition coming here. I have a total fear of dentistry and getting my teeth done. I had bad experiences when I was younger. I do like to talk to people. I like to socialize and my teeth were holding me back in able to do those things; to be able to smile. I love to smile and I love to laugh, and I'm not able to until I get everything done that I want to do. From the bottom of my heart, to have somebody on your side and to give you the confidence and the feeling that it's going to be okay, to tap you on the shoulder, "It's going to be okay," and to hug you when you leave and say, "We'll see you later." More of a friend than a dentist; it's a 1-to-1 relationship where he decides for you what is best for you. He decides to see what he can do, what is possible. He'll be truthful. He'll be honest. He'll let you know. He'll work with you in any which way that he can. He's a gem and I can't really say a lot more about him. It's not like we socialize and have dinner together, but on a 1-to-1 relationship as far as being my dentist, he is my hero. Announcer: In Bergen County, call Malki Dental at 201-646-0800. Beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.
