Dr. Mary Katherine Matthews Testimonials
Dr. Kate was wonderful with my son. She did the checking and the cleaning of his teeth. He had his first x-ray at the age of 14 and he did well with the “Astronaut” machine. He and I were able to see the full picture of his teeth including the start of his wisdom teeth. Dr. Kate answered all my questions. We are very pleased.
The dental visit with our 6 year old was amazing! Our child has typically been very anxious about dental care. He left his appointment today saying that he “likes going to the dentist.” Everyone was very patient, kind and caring! Thank you again for this wonderful experience!
It is obvious that Dr. Katie cares about children. She took her time with my three-year-old son and explained everything that she was doing. I felt very comfortable, and so did he. Thank you!
