About Dr. John Matthes

I was born in Rhinebeck, New York into a large family of six boys and six girls, including myself. However, my parents decided to move our family to Northwest Indiana. I grew up in a small rural town. There everyone knew and cared for each other. This environment had a large impact on my decision to serve others. I chose dentistry because it allows me to continue serving others and I love to see people smile! I received my Bachelor degree from Purdue University. I left Indiana to attend a pre-medical/pre-dental postbaccalaureate at the University of Pennsylvania. There, I concentrated on Organic & Cell Biology while also performing research at a local hospital. Finally, I returned to my beloved Empire State! I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery from New York University College of Dentistry with honors. In addition, I had the pleasure of serving as President of my dental class and NYU Student Body President. I performed my Residency at New York Hospital-Queens and took the initiative of leading the community outreach. I have presented research on digital restorative (CAD/CAM) dentistry to both the International Academy of Dental Research & the American Academy of Dental Research.

Dr. Matthes continues to be a total pro—he’s knowledgeable, thorough, and gives me any bad news (don’t rely on waterpiks as a substitute for floss, folks) straight-up but in the kindest possible way. He doesn’t sell me anything I don’t needbut still carefully monitors potential problems as they develop. 10/10 I will cry if he ever leaves NYC. (Freddy is the best, too.)

He called me directly when told that I was in pain and made time that same afternoon. He walked me through procedure, pricing and options with care and mindful of my specific needs. He and his wonderful office manager, Freddy, aswell as terrific assistant stayed late to finish the job. Excellent dentist, I highly reccommend.

I am honestly saddened that I am moving out of NYC and will no longer be able to see Dr. Matthes. I cannot recommend him highly enough! He is very through, talks you through everything, and you can tell that hereally enjoys his job. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment if you are looking for a new dentist.

Dr Matthes is a great dentist and I'm so glad to have found him. He is not only skillful and knowledgable , he is also very enthusiastic about dentistry. Starting the process of getting some implants is not such a funthing but he makes it ok. I definitely feel that he is a caring and conscientious doctor. The fact that he has flexible hours including nights and Saturdays is a big help. Freddie at reception is also very kind and helpful with billing and scheduling and all that. I definitely recommend this office to anyone in search of a dentist.

Dr. Matthes was great! He took the time to hear all of my concerns and get a full picture of my dental health situation. He then clearly and effectively explained all of his procedures, recommendations, and answered all questions I had.His bedside manner was friendly and approachable and he was thorough throughout the entire process. Everything was super professional and I felt confident in the care provided, from the front office staff, through the treatment, and all the way through until the end!

Dr. Matthes is very professional, very thorough, with a courteous and professional staff. He explains everything he is doing and why he's doing it. He replaced an old crown (done by a previous dentist) that had developed a cavity underneathit, which he showed me in the x-rays. He even x-rayed the new crown in place before cementing it in permanently, to make sure the fit was perfect. I highly recommend Dr. Matthes.

I went in for a cleaning that took at least 2.5hours between waiting for him to treat another patient (for filling) and various other interruptions and inefficiencies (at least one personal visit by wife/gf, etc). Everyone was very nice - -but not the best cleaning job (some pains) and definitely not the most efficient appointment you can find, considering I was trying to schedule it on a Saturday evening to due to my hectic work schedule.

Dr Matthes is kind, professional, and quick. I leave feeling like he took the time to make sure everything is healthy re my teeth/gums. But it's still a quick cleaning. I'm here every six months because I book my appointments whenI leave, and they remind me with a phone call leading up. For some reason, I've never managed to maintain a regular dentist visit schedule before, but now it just happens. And, rescheduling is a breeze. Freddy who works at the desk is awesome too, so friendly and helpful!

John Matthes was very helpful in explaining my teeth and what proper brushing and flossing does to keep teeth clean from bacteria and cavity. I've never had a dentist explain so clearly everything he was doing and helped me understand whatis happening since I can't see what's going on in my mouth during the visit.

I am very happy that I found Dr. Matthes while searching for a new dentist after my old dentist moved to CA. He is very supportive, and thorough when explaining the process. Dr. Matthes is a professional and has a naturallycarrying and pleasant personality. From my very first visit at the office, I was made to feel welcome and comfortable both by the friendly competence of the staff and the pleasant environment of the office itself. The office is very well equipped with the newest technology. I would recommend Dr. Matthes to everyone.

Nobody is a fan of going to the dentist, but Dr. Matthes truly makes it as pleasant an experience as it can possibly be. He uses the newest technology, and is very thorough in care, and in explaining everything you need to know.
