Mar 02, 2016 /prREACH/ -- Knoxville, Tn. Top Dental Pros has awarded Dr. Stephen Malone and Dr. Brent Dickenson the prestigious Five Star Achievement Award for their extraordinary success using the Invisalign system to improve patients' smiles and boost their confidence. Dr. Malone and Dr. Dickenson are the only dentists in the Knoxville area to receive this recognition.
Dr. Stephen Malone received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine Degree from the University of Louisville, and has practiced dentistry in Knoxville for nearly 20 years. Dr. Malone has pursued hands-on continuing education, and mentored advanced dental students every year since earning his doctorate. He participates in multiple dental study clubs and professional organizations, where he has also assumed many leadership roles. Dr. Malone was the youngest dentist to earn the elite status of Pankey Scholar at the world-renowned post-doctoral educational institution, The Pankey Institute, and he is now a member of its visiting faculty.
Dr. Brent Dickenson earned his doctorate in dental surgery (D.D.S.) at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, after earning his B.A. degree in Psychology at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association, and 2nd District Dental Society.
Dr. Malone and Dr. Dickenson's intense study in specialty treatment, general dentistry, and Invisalign enables them to provide their patients with optimal oral health, comfort, function, and aesthetic beauty.
The Invisalign system by Align Technology is a revolutionary approach to straightening teeth quickly, comfortably, and virtually invisibly through a series of clear, custom-made aligners. Each set of aligners is made of smooth, comfortable plastic that are worn over your teeth. Changing to new aligners approximately every two weeks throughout the treatment period allows your teeth to shift into their proper positions gradually and comfortably. The gradual shift can dramatically reduce the aching and soreness that some patients experience with regular braces.
The Invisalign system is incredibly popular with all age groups due to its capacity to eliminate the aesthetic concerns created by metal braces. Teens, especially, enjoy the Invisalign system because the aligners can be removed for special occasions. This allows the wearer to enjoy food otherwise prohibited with use of conventional metal braces, play sports without the fear of mouth injuries, and maintain high levels of self-confidence when the patient needs to look or speak their best. Treatment time for the Invisalign treatment can vary significantly, depending on each unique patient situation, but generally runs only 9-18 months, start to finish.
Dr. Malone's hobbies include golf, cycling, boating and spending time with family. He also enjoys speaking and mentoring other dentists.
Outside of work, Dr. Dickenson loves spending time with his wife and volunteering in the nursery of their church. He also enjoys golfing and playing tennis.
