Brenda Dastrup is a Matthews Smiles fan for life.
“Dr. Blake Matthews and his staff are absolutely wonderful,” Brenda says. “They do their best in always having the same hygienist at each of your cleanings. By doing this, you feel like she knows you and can follow through with concerns from the previous appointments and watch possible problem areas. Dr. Blake is knowledgeable and takes a very patient-friendly approach to your dental care. He always gives me options when possible about how best to approach my dental needs.”
And Brenda’s fandom isn’t isolated. Dr. Blake’s patients feel connected to the practice and routinely keep visiting even after moving from the area.
These great patient experiences aren’t done by accident. Dr. Blake and his staff go to great lengths to make sure dental work is done in a comfortable environment — complete with neck rests, warm blankets and iPads — while leaning back and enjoying in-ceiling televisions.
Nitrous oxide is available to all patients, even for routine cleanings. For those suffering from treatment anxiety, Matthews Smiles offers full sedation dentistry.
“Our No. 1 goal is patient comfort,” Dr. Blake says.
When patients are settled in and comfortable, Dr. Blake and his team of professionals offer conservative, top-level dentistry where the patient is involved in dental treatment decisions.
“Our dental practice has been in the valley for 50 years,” Dr. Blake says. “Not many practices have that longevity. Our focus on patient comfort and quality dental care has provided us the opportunity to establish relationships and friendships with our patients for generations.”
Dr. Blake is an instructor and educator in the fields of cosmetic and implant dentistry. He also offers the latest in sleep apnea treatment, periodontal therapy, crowns, veneers and clear braces.
And they do all of it with a smile any dentist would be proud of.
Dr. Blake Matthews has been an instructor for cosmetic institutes where he teaches fellow dentists the latest techniques for cosmetic and implant dentistry.
“Implants have saved dentistry,” Dr. Blake says. “The implant offers a long-term solution for patients and integrates well with other teeth.”
Implants are placed in the bone of the patient and then given time to integrate completely with the tissue and bone. When the implant is set, a restorative crown is placed on top. Implants alleviate the need for uncomfortable and less-effective dentures.
