Meet the Doctors

I love living by the coast with my husband, two very active children.  Our daughter Caitlin attends University of Santa Barbara and is studying Biology. Our son Andrew is a senior in high school and is an avid wrestler.  I hear that a day will come when I will miss all the activity, but for now, we just keep on the go.  Fitness is an important part of my life and a healthy diet and exercise give me the energy I need to keep up with our full lives.  I enjoy running, biking, and organic gardening.

I am a 1995 graduate of the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Dental Medicine and completed my post-doctorate training at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center at Newark, New Jersey.  I am proud to provide my patients with the best in dental technology, treatment options and patient comfort.  I spend several weekends a year at the world renowned Spear Education center to keep  up with best dentists in the world.

I enjoy the changes and improvements in my profession and strive to take as many continuing education courses as possible. My personal promise to you is to give you my best every day, to make you comfortable, treat you like you are my family and provide you with the latest in dental technology!  I will work hard to earn your trust and establish a relationship with you.

Dr. Malakis

I was born and raised in southern California, and I just can’t get enough of the wonderful weather! I love to stay active by playing basketball, golfing, and fishing. My beautiful wife Dr. Natasha Mallakis, who is a pharmacist, has got me into running and yoga. We also really enjoy food, so we are always trying out new recipes and finding interesting restaurants to eat at.

I’m a proud graduate of San Diego State University. Go Aztecs! I earned my dental degree at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in Arizona, a school that concentrated on comprehensive patient care with the newest techniques and materials. While there I was honored with an award from the American College of Prosthodontists.

I am passionate about dentistry, and learning is a never ending journey in my career. Staying up to date allows me to provide the best care for my patients and contribute to a more positive perception of dentistry. I have attended countless hours of continuing education, including courses at Spear Education, the most innovative and respected dental education provider in the country.

I love educating patients and helping them understand how to improve their oral health. I believe in always having a positive exchange with people and providing my patients with the same quality of dentistry I would give myself and my family. I look forward to seeing you at our office.
