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. .

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
Although all of your teeth can suffer decay, your back teeth are particularly susceptible to cavities. Food and bacteria can easily accumulate in the deep crevices on the top chewing surfaces. As the acid eats away at your dental enamel, cavities will form. Dental sealants at our Knoxville practice are one of the most effective ways to prevent decay in your molars. Dr. Stephen K. Malone or Dr. Michael J. Costa, Jr. will apply these thin plastic coatings, and they will form a protective shield for your teeth. Frequently a pediatric treatment, sealants can benefit adults, as well. To learn more about sealants, contact our office today.
Cavities develop when food and bacteria remain inside your mouth. Sugars and bacteria interact with one another to form acid, and the acid will erode your enamel. As the outer layers of your teeth begin to wear away, the bacteria will penetrate through the deeper layers, forming cavities. Decay is especially prevalent in the back teeth (premolars and molars). The deep fissures on the top chewing surfaces can easily trap food and bacteria. Even with routine brushing, tiny food particles will often lurk in these areas. Sealants form a barrier over the top of your teeth. Even if food remains trapped in these spaces, bacteria and acid will not be able to penetrate the lower levels of your teeth.
The sealant application process is quick and discomfort-free. First, the dentist will thoroughly clean and dry your teeth. He will place cotton around the base of your teeth to keep them dry. Using a mild acid solution, he will lightly etch your teeth. The solution will create microscopic fissures, allowing the sealant to adhere more strongly. After cleaning and drying your teeth a second time, he will apply the sealant. The clear or tooth-colored plastic coating will dry quickly, creating a near-impenetrable barrier. In most cases, sealants can last 10 years or more. In many cases, sealants can be reapplied if they start to wear off. At each routine exam, he will check to see if the coating is still intact.
Dr. Malone and Dr. Costa most frequently apply dental sealants on children’s teeth. They will typically recommend sealants as soon as young patient’s adult molars first come in. However, the treatment can benefit patients of all ages. If you are an adult with healthy teeth and no existing fillings, you may qualify for sealants. In some cases, sealants may be recommended for baby teeth. For example, if your child has unusually deep grooves in his or her teeth, sealants can reduce the higher risk for decay.
Protecting your smile is easy and affordable. Contact our Knoxville office to find out if sealants are right for you or your child. We proudly serve patients in the greater Knoxville area, including Powell, Karns, Farragut, Seymour, Maryville, and Oak Ridge.
