It varies by the experience and popularity of the groomer you go to. You obviously want the most experienced to be sure your dog does not get hurt.
From this site, http://en.allexperts.com/q/Dog-Grooming-3525/Maltese-Grooming.htm :
“Your cost will vary according to where you live. In mid west Ohio, about $ 25, but don’t’ be afraid to ask when you call the groomer.”
The site above also talks about puppies. Puppies don’t know how to behave when being groomed…
From thi site, http://www.costhelper.com/cost/pets/dog-grooming.html :
“For small breeds or mid-sized breeds that do not have thick hair or require a complicated cut, grooming costs about $ 30 to $ 50. Examples include the Bichon Frise, Miniature Poodle, Maltese, Cocker Spaniel and Labrador Retriever.”
The National Dog Groomers Association of America is a good place to find groomers: http://www.nationaldoggroomers.com/

Other grooming tips from this site, http://maltese_club.tripod.com/id11.html :
“Maltese should be combed once a day for a few minutes and bathed once a week. This keeps her beautiful long and silky coat in good, healthy condition. ”
Here is a site with extensive information on the maltese:
Here is a page dedicated to Maltese Puppy grooming:
According to this page, http://maltaangelsmaltese.com/Grooming/index.htm “Young puppies should not be bathed too often, as it can dry out their skin and beautiful silky coat that the breed has been blessed with. Once every 7-10 days should be sufficient, unless the puppy gets into something.”
Hope that helps.
