Dr. Sam Malcheff biography
In addition to being a husband and father of two, Dr. Sam Malcheff is also a U of M clinical lecturer, University of Michigan and Howard University grad, Michigan native, and retired Detroit Firefighter.
Dr. Sam, a second-generation dentist, grew up in Rochester Hills and graduated from the University of Detroit Jesuit High School. He graduated from Howard University in 1994. While taking post baccalaureate science classes at Wayne State University, Dr. Sam was a Detroit firefighter. Thereafter, he was admitted to, and in 2003, graduated from, the University of Michigan School of Dentistry.
It was during his time at the Detroit Community Health Connection serving as a National Health Service Scholar, that he realized his inclination toward working with children. He realized that he could have a positive impact on how they viewed visiting the dentist. After two years, he returned to the University of Michigan and received his Masters of Science in Pediatric Dentistry in 2007. Dr. Sam enjoyed his time as an associate in private practice in Ann Arbor. He is now excited to call family-friendly Canton Township, MI, home.
Additionally, Dr. Sam is a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and adjunct clinical assistant professor in the Department of Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Michigan. He is an active member of the Michigan Dental Association, Washtenaw District Dental Association, a past president of the Washtenaw District Dental Society and past president of the Michigan Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
In his spare time, Dr. Sam Malcheff likes to read science fiction (ask him about The Hunger Games or Harry Potter), go to the cinema (Michigan Theatre is one of his favorites), be a swim and soccer ‘cabbie’ to his children, travel, and ski.
