Dr. Malterud is a solo clinician who has practiced in St. Paul Minnesota for over 36 years. He has always been passionate about Minimally Invasive dental procedures and this has allowed him to help his patients avoid crowns and root canals by treating early and definitively. His long term success with Resin bonded dentistry started over 34 years ago when he abandoned placing Amalgams and focused on direct and indirect resin bonded dentistry. As his practice evolved he became involved with organized Dentistry and spent some time on councils and committees of the AGD and served as Region 10 Trustee for 6 years. His time there helped him focus his energies on keeping dental practices independent and thriving as he saw the tide swelling towards corporate practices and his belief is in the personal relationships with patients and delivering comprehensive quality care. He currently is involved with Smile Source as an Advisor and Administrator and runs a local group of more than 25 exceptional Smile Source independent dentists in Minnesota. When he isn’t practicing wet fingered dentistry he eagerly seeks out education and also lectures around the country on Minimally Invasive Dentistry.
