Lots of friendly, compassionate, and informative faces from beginning to end. I was VERY impressed with the technology and cleanliness in Dr. Malone and Dr. Dickenson's office. This was my first visit May 10, 2017. They gave me the royal treatment! Thank you!!!
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They did a great job and am very glad I found them with an Internet search and came here.
Yes, indeed, I highly recommend anyone to this practice. I have never had a better experience at the dentist! Fantastic service from start to finish, everyone is amazing from the receptionists to the one holding the drill. Tish you are an angel! Top of it off my dental assistant, Lauren never left my side! I've never almost fallen asleep having a root canal until today! I am serious.
First and foremost, I am an admitted dentist chicken. Dr. Dickenson and his staff may be changing my mind. From the initial phonecall to set up my appointment, to my visit, to walking out the door, I felt at ease. I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to going back. Thanks to Lauren, Isybela, and the lovely front ladies for making me feel welcome.
Best office ever!
It has been hard for me to find a dentist that I enjoy going to. With Knoxville Smiles I get the patient care I'm looking for. The entire staff is very warm and inviting. I will be sure to make this my primary dentist!
Everyone is so sweet and kind. They treated me like family.

I have been looking for a good dentist for the past couple of years, so when a postcard came in my mail from this office, I kept it. When I called, I got an appointment in just 2 days! I'm so thankful that I chose Dr. Malone's dental office, not only for the convenient location, but for the friendliness and exceptional care which I received! I will be recommending this dental office to everyone I know!
I recently received a postcard in the mail but had laid it aside for a couple of weeks...it's called procrastination! I finally called and got an appointment within 2 days, and am so glad that I called. Everyone was friendly and welcoming! My experience was the best ever and I will be recommending this dental office to everyone I know.
One of the best dentist’s offices I have visited. The staff is friendly and performer’s quality work. The dentist will not try to suggest operations and procedures that are not necessary. If you are looking for a good dentist team, then you have found them.
This dentist and his staff are patient, friendly, and knowledgable. They welcome questions and offer detailed explanations and options on procedures. I'm very impressed with this place. Relaxing atmosphere and again, an awesome staff. Lucky to have found this place.
I have had my share of dentist visits over the years, but I must confess I am impressed with the efficiency of the the staff and the warm atmosphere of the staff.I can see why they come so highly recommended.
The best dental experience ever... Dr. Malone and the entire staff are so welcoming and hospitable--I felt like I was their only patient of the day! I truly cannot wait to go back! ...and for years, I've been so afraid of dentists! This office is my new dental "spa"! I cannot thank them enough for how comfortable and wonderful they all made me feel.
Everyone treated me so well, I actually look forward to the dentist! Love this place!
Entire staff very friendly and made me feel comfortable. Very quick to solve situations with compassion. I would recommend all services to anyone who asked me.
I never thought I'd say this...I actually had a good time at the dentist. Really, thank you my answering all of my questions and concerns. I'm thankful to have a new dentist!
Couldn't ask for better people and care!
It takes a lot for me to be impressed with a dentist. However, Malone Dentistry did more than impress me, they exceeded all of my expectations of a dentist. Dr. Malone is the best choice!
I would not go anywhere else! I am extremely picky when it comes to a dentist (or any healthcare provider) - and Dr. Malone and his staff are absolutely amazing.
Excellent visit, great staff, I always feel well-cared for!
Great staff and wonderful, immaculate facility. .

Everyone was extremely nice and helpful! Loved my first experience and can't wait to come back!
Extremely professional staff, and Dr. Malone made me feel very comfortable and made sure I understood all available treatment options. Great experience, great team, and great environment!
My hygient was outstanding today !! Great job !!
I would like to thank everyone especially Isabella and SHannon.
My teeth cleaning experience with Shannon was the best. Almost comparable with a spa treatment, I was so relaxed with , blankets, bottled water and many yummy choices of flavors during cleaning and floride.The cleaning itself was gentle yet so thorough! I highly recommend Malone Dentistry!
Everyone is so nice here! The staff is really professional and welcoming. I loved it! It really is dental utopia. Definitely coming back soon.
Very professional and really caring staff! Shannon cleaned my teeth and was so nice and tried to make me as comfortable as possible. The receptionist were very nice and helpful.
Absolutely the best experience I've ever had at the dentist. Fantastic staff!
This was my first time here and my first pleasant experience at a dental cleaning. The staff is very friendly and they make you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in. From a warm blanket, to a souvenir bag, I highly recommend this place to others.
My second visit and words cannot really explain how impressed I am with not only Dr. Malone but, also every person at this office. You feel welcomed and appreciated as soon as you walk in. I am one who has never been fond of going to the dentist and I can honestly say that I feel completely at ease and in good hands when I go now. I probably had the best cleaning I have ever had today by Izabela. What a gem! Thank you very much to all of you.
Very attentative,nice,and a pleasure to be around
Dr. Malone's staff is phenomenal. They listen to you and communicate in an understandable and caring way. When you enter the office you are a part of a large family. I have never encountered a dental staff that cares so much about their patients beyond their oral health. I actually look forward to my visits.
The attention to my condition and concerns are always addressed by the staff. Appointments are flexible and meet my schedule
I always have a great experience here. They have the most kind and courteous staff who make you feel comfortable and ease any worries/concerns. They go out of their way to help work with you and the facility is amazing... very clean and up to date. I am very pleased with the work I have had done here and will continue to do business with them as long as I am here, and I highly recommend them to all my friends, family and anyone needing excellent dental work!
Dr.Dickenson is amazing! Great experience with the filling, would highly recommend!
Very pleasant experience. Dr. Malone and his staff are very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend them to friends and family.
This has been one of the friendliest offices I have ever been to. The staff makes me feel so warm and welcome and has since day 1, and they have catered to my every need. I highly recommend this office to anyone.
Excellent staff and very kind. Made my visit wonderful.
This was one of the most positive and comfortable appointment men's that I've ever had. From the front office staff to the hygienist and doctor; amazing!!!!! The state of art technology and the depth of education regarding mouth hygiene is greatly appreciated. I will surely be recommending this office to friends, family and colleagues!
Dr's Malone & Eslinger are top notch. Their staff is just the absolute best, as well. By far my favorite dentist office EVER.
Great overall experience! Front desk promptly greeted me. The team got me in prior to my scheduled time. Office is very clean and I love that you accepted my suggestion from a previous visit in providing water to those that have just finished dental work! Upon checking out the front desk (Kathy and Tish) are so friendly!
Friendly staff and quality work
If you are a new patient in our Knoxville practice, the comprehensive examination you receive from Dr. Stephen K. Malone or Dr. Michael J. Costa, Jr. may be unlike any you have received before. Your dentist wants to know you as a unique individual and to examine you in such a way that you can discover together the aspects of your oral health and appearance that can be improved. Together, you and your dentist will gain valuable insights as you talk about your past dental experiences and what you want for yourself.
Hearing about your concerns and opinions will enable our dental team to help you achieve the results you want. Our complete clinical examination for new patients—and during regular annual checkups for existing patients, will be a co-discovery, interactive exam, accomplished with your help and input. To reach a complete understanding of your present state of oral health, our dentist will gather information about the condition of your individual teeth, the gum and bone tissue surrounding your teeth, other soft tissue of your mouth, your chewing muscles, your jaw joints, and how your teeth come together against each other. Our dentist also will gather information about how these individual components work together in your mouth for your overall function and appearance.
The dentist who examines you will be looking for signs of dental disease, damage, and wear; periodontal disease; temporomandibular joint (TMD/TMJ) health and related muscle comfort or tenderness; malocclusion (poor fitting of the teeth together or “bite”); oral cancer; and more. Dr. Malone or Dr. Costa will also evaluate the condition of any existing restorations (such as fillings, crowns, dentures, implant crowns and bridges, or bonding).
Using our digital technology, your dentist will take you on a visual tour of your mouth to discuss each point of health and cosmetic concern. Depending on the last time we recorded digital x-rays, scans or photo images—and changes in your mouth, your dentist may recommend that a set of one or more of these types of digital records be updated.
Your dentist will be actively listening for your questions, concerns, and opinions. Time will be taken to address them. After the examination, before advising you on treatment, your examining dentist may take time to study all of the gathered information and form a thoughtful plan that addresses your concerns and any uncovered health problems. You will benefit from our practice having two dentists who can confer and collaborate on dental cases, providing the input of two knowledgeable and skilled clinicians.
If you have an urgent need, perhaps, a painful tooth, we will offer you immediate treatment. When need for restorative treatment is discovered at a comprehensive dental exam and the restoration is not urgent, you will be invited to schedule a subsequent appointment. This way, we can schedule you appropriately for the care you need and give both you and the dentist time to discuss options and prepare to best proceed with treatment that meets your goals and objectives.
We are a partner in you achieving oral health. We want you to feel in control. We encourage you to speak freely about your questions, concerns, and preferences. If you have a severe gag reflex or high dental anxiety, we can make you comfortable with oral moderate sedation. If you suffer from light dental anxiety, we can practice relaxation techniques and also hand signals that will inform us at times when you feel stressed and need a break. We offer this for all dental services—no matter how routine or how complex. You are a special person deserving of a relaxed, comfortable appointment. If you are coming to us as a new patient, tell us about your desire for relaxation assistance when you call to schedule your first appointment. In this situation, we may schedule you for only a preclinical consultation on your first visit, and then do a sedated comprehensive examination at a second appointment.
Dr. Stephen K. Malone, Dr. Michael J. Costa, Jr., and our entire dental practice team promise to treat you like the special person you are. We’ll give you the full time and attention we believe all our patients deserve. If you live in the Knoxville area, we invite you to give us a call today to schedule an annual comprehensive oral health evaluation—with a preclinical consultation and comprehensive clinical exam.
