Alvin C. Matthews, DDS, PC replied on 07-27-2010

Thanks for your response. I understand you are upset and I also understand you want to be heard. I am a little disappointed that this is how you choose to get your message out.

Dr. Matthews spends a lot of time and effort making sure that our patients are receiving the best quality of care they are able to get. In some cases he feels the patient would benefit from going to a specialist to be treated and he would at that time ‘refer’ them – he does not ‘source out’ his patients – to an endodontist (root canal specialist). In some cases, pain medications can not be prescribed due to existing medical conditions and most often pain medications are prohibited by the specialist due to it masking symptoms.

Dr. Matthews goes above and beyond any dental office that I know of. Our dentist and staff really do care and will go out of their way to really connect to our patients. This is really important to us. After Dr. Matthews reached out to you on several occasions only to be hung up on, we find this report from you very disturbing and unjust. I know that Dr. Matthews has spent hours trying to convince you to seek the treatment you urgently need. We hope you find what you are looking for. Good luck with your future dentist.

A Caring Dental Office

I have been going to Dr. Matthews office since he came to Arizona about 15 years. Dr. Matthews and his staff always make me feel comfortable during my visit. They truly care about my dental health. If you are looking for an experienced dentist with a great staff, I highly recommend Dr. Matthews.

Dr. Matthews cares about prevention

Well. . . after leaving Dr. Matthews' office, I am more educated. I didn't know that the acid in diet soda eats tooth enamel. Yikes! I thought that sugar was the evil one. I am using a straw now. Dr. Matthews does care about prevention.

He Gives Back To The Community

Dr. Matthews,my dentist, has been a frequent volunteer at the various free clinics sponsored by the Arizona Dental Association. He is a great guy who loves dentistry. He takes great pride in doing excellent work and it shows. My crowns look so natural that not even my own mother noticed them!

Dr. Matthews Cares!

My neighbor recommended Dr. Matthews to me when I needed a dentist. I called and they saw me the very next day. The office is clean and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Dr. Matthews made me feel very comfortable and he fixed me my problem. They even called me later to see how I was feeling and asked if I had any questions or concerns about the procedure. WOW!!! This is an office that cares about their patients! I would recommend them to everyone.

Wonderful Cosmetic Dentist

From start to finish, this has been a positive, professional experience. The entire staff was courteous and knowledgeable, and made me feel at home immediately. The end result is spectacular and I’d heartily recommend Phoenix dentist, Dr. Matthews, to anyone contemplating cosmetic dentistry.

I Feel Much Better!

I was really nervous to go to the dentist, since it had been a few years. A neighbor suggested I go to Dr. Matthews, and I'm so glad I did. He made me feel like I was his only patient and showed me pictures of my teeth and explained to me what was happening and what I needed done. I was scheduled to come back for the work the same week. The procedure was completely painless and I am sorry I didn't come to Dr. Matthews much sooner. I'm making my wife switch her dentist so she can come here too!

Beyond Expectations

From the greeting you get the first time you walk in the door to the new smile you leave with a few weeks later, Dr. Matthews’ Phoenix dental office goes beyond expectations. I was very nervous about the process of getting veneers on my teeth. I wanted a beautiful smile but you hear horror stories. Dr. Matthews carefully walked me through every step of the process. I felt comfortable and confident with the procedure. I now have the smile that I always wanted. Dr. Matthews and his staff are professional, courteous and give the results a patient is looking for!
