The founders of our practice, Dr. Malz and Dr. Woodman, both grew up in Long Island only 15 minutes from each other but never met! It was not until dental school in Philadelphia that they became a pair. They were married in 1997 and have one son, Jonathan. After practicing dentistry in New York for ten years, “We decided to relocate to Charlotte, North Carolina in 2005 for the wonderful weather, warm-hearted hospitality and great quality of life.” Founding McKee Dental Associates in Matthews, they look forward to sharing their skills and experience, along with integrity and five-star service with you. “Family is important to us. That is why we want our dental practice to be like a big family. We care about our patients and hope they can find a home with us for a long time.” Outside of the office, they both enjoy being outdoors, boating, reading and watching movies.
