Dr. Rex Malcom was born and raised in Georgia, not far from Atlanta. He began his professional career as a Pharmacist after graduating with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Georgia. During pharmacy school, he completed an externship with the Indian Health Service in Sitka. His time there created a strong desire to return to Alaska. After marrying his wife Angela in 1999, and a few years practicing pharmacy in Georgia and South Carolina, his young family decided to make the move to Anchorage. His son was 10 months old at the time.
After 7 years living in Anchorage, and having a new daughter, Dr. Malcom made the decision to pursue a long time goal of returning to school to be a dentist. Along with his family, he moved to Kentucky to attend the University of Louisville where he received a top-rated dental education. Upon completing dental school, he returned to Alaska where he is delighted to be practicing.
Dr. Malcom loves practicing dentistry. He enjoys the ability to improve the oral health of patients as well as the esthetics of their smile. He is thrilled that he is able to combine his pharmacy background with the practice of dentistry when talking with patients about medications and health conditions that may be affected by their oral health. It is a passion of Dr. Malcom’s to help people understand the connections between oral health and total body health and how the treatment of oral health may lead to improved overall health.
Dr. Malcom is well trained in many facets of dentistry including emergency dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, crown and bridge work, Invisalign, endodontics, removable prosthetics (dentures and partials), as well as implants, extractions, and fillings.
Away from the office Dr. Malcom and his family, like to take advantage of all of the outdoor opportunities that our great state offers. His activities often revolve around church, his family’s remote cabin, and recreation sports – where he is often found coaching his children.
