Family Dentist Staff
Dr. Emma Galvan, D.D.S.
Family Dentist in Perry Hall, MD
Perry Hall Dental Care
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Dr. Karl Meek, DDS
From an early age, Dr. Karl Meek understood three things: (1) he would always be a Baltimore (Colts, Ravens, Orioles) fan; (2) he loves helping people; and (3) he wanted to be the best dentist in town.
Today, Dr. Meek is fulfilling all three.
Born and raised in Perry Hall, Karl was an honor roll graduate from McDonogh School; received his undergraduate degree from Tufts University; and, four years later, received his DDS degree from the well-known University of Maryland School of Dentistry.
As a family dentist for more than 25 years, Karl is known as one of the community’s best, maintaining active memberships in the American Dental Association, Maryland Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Meek also takes continuing education courses to advance his knowledge and practice in General Restorative Dentistry, Cosmetic and Aesthetic treatments (including veneers), Invisible Tooth Alignment, and single appointment Endodontics (root canals). Karl has also had tremendous success in using Nitrous Oxide Sedation (and TLC) to increase patient comfort and confidence when needed.
When he’s not cheering on the Ravens and Orioles, Dr. Meek enjoys spending time with his family, relaxing “down the Ocean”, mastering home improvement projects, and playing golf.
Karl always wears a smile, and works hard to make sure yours is just as bright.
Malinda Dannenfelser - RDH
Malinda, the team's principal Registered Dental Hygienist, has been working for Dr. Meek for over 20 years. She ensures every patient receives the very best Hygiene instruction, and most thorough (and gentle) periodontal cleaning possible.
Malinda's friendly and dedicated approach has made our patients very big fans of hers, and they look forward to their recall appointments.
Born in Perry Hall and raised in Kingsville, Malinda graduated from Perry Hall High School, attended UMBC, and then finished her Dental Hygiene degree, with honors, from CCB.
She graduated at the top of her class.
Malinda continually advances her skills and knowledge through continuing education courses approved by the Maryland Dental Association.
While not at work, Malinda enjoys spending time with her family on their farm riding horses, gardening, and reading.
Dr. Meek relies on Malinda's good book reviews for his reading pleasure.

Michele has her Certified Dental Assistant License and her Radiology Certification License.
