Welcome To Our Office


Please click here for updates on Covid-19.

Dr. Matt Heaton has limited his dental office exclusively to the practice of periodontics, which means that we focus primarily on the treatment of the soft and hard tissues of the mouth.  This can include, but is not limited to, management of periodontal or "gum" disease (also called pyorrhea), soft tissue grafting, and cosmetic periodontics, as well as preparation for and placement of dental implants.  

While Dr. Heaton is fully trained and practiced in general dentistry, he has undergone extensive training and continued education in the field of periodontics, bringing state-of-the-art dentistry to better improve your dental health.

When you visit our office, your care is our top priority.  Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with the personalized dental care that you deserve.

Our commitment to serving our patients includes providing information that helps them to make more informed decisions about their oral health needs.  This website is a resource to help you learn more about our practice, dental conditions and treatments, dental recommendations, and more.
