His favorite part of his job is relieving patient’s pain and improving their quality of life. Dr. Malyala’s goal is to ensure a pleasant and positive dental experience. “Most of the patients that come to see me are very nervous/anxious about the root canal procedure. A lot of times they are in pain and have swelling, which is an emergency. First, I like to reassure the patient and convey to them that I am here to help them and understand their immediate concerns. I aim to provide a warm and welcoming experience. I then educate the patient about their problem and provide treatment to address their immediate concerns. I also convey to the patient that we are available to address their post-treatment emergencies any time, day or night if he/she were to develop a problem after the treatment.”  Dr. Malyala, studied at New York University College of Dentistry where he received his DDS degree in 2003 before completing his postgraduate training in endodontics in 2006.
