Dr. Mathes is great! He cares about his patient's teeth as much as they do. I was so lucky to have found him when I was looking for a new dentist. Whenever I have had any issues I call and am able to get right in to see him. Dr. Mathes is very meticulous in the service that he provides to his patients.

- Kathy R., Actual Patient

Dr. Mathes was my husband's childhood family dentist. A few years ago, after a pair of negative experiences at my own dentist, I decided to give Dr. Mathes a try, since my husband swore by him. I was so very pleased with the quality of his work and his friendly and attentive staff. He is a straight shooter and really cares about your oral health.

- Angie G., Actual Patient

I have been a patient of Dr. Mathes for several years. He does excellent work, is very friendly and sincerely cares for my well-being and the health of my teeth. I highly recommend Dr. Mathes to anyone looking me a new dentist.
