“As a dentist, I have the opportunity to help each person in my chair. Oral health is closely tied to body wellness, and the appearance of a smile can impact a person’s self-esteem. I want the best for each patient I have the honor to treat: health, happiness, and a smile they love to share!
I especially enjoy working with people who have dental-related anxiety. In listening to their worries, I learn what they need to overcome the fears. As we work together, I help individuals learn that today’s dentistry is comfortable and they have nothing to worry about. Earning a person’s trust helps them feel safe and empowers them to take better care of their health.
Whether I am getting someone out of pain, restoring function, brightening a smile, or providing education, my focus is always on the person and what is best for them.” – Dr. Matulka
