Crown Prep Appointment

“Considering how difficult this crown preparation procedure turned out to be, I was very pleased with the way it was done and its outcome. Dr. Simmons and Phyllis are both extremely skillful and work well together as a team. I was expecting the procedure to be a lot more painful and difficult and was not totally confident in a positive outcome. I believe is was their combined skills that resulted in the good outcome.”

Patient, Caring, And Friendly Staff

“I have never left feeling rushed or uncared for. I have interacted with both doctors…each are equally caring and professional. I highly recommend this practice.”

Very Professional

“After not going to the dentist for quite a while, I was nervous about my visit today. From the moment I walked in the door, everyone was very friendly and put my mind at ease. They talked me through the whole process and made me feel very comfortable. I couldn’t be happier with my experience.”

Anticipated The Worst; Minimal Treatment The Best

“You know how you anticipate the worst when you’re in pain? The office was able to work me in quickly and the dental assistant was quick and empathetic to my situation. Dr. Matlaga was able to streamline past the anxiety, the x-ray and oral exam. He made a determination and fixed within the most reasonable and least invasive procedure. I wasn’t sure but willing to go with his experience and guess what, it worked. No matter how much technical research I was aware of; his hands on experience overruled.”

“I hate dentist visits so was recommended to Parkside Dental. I can’t say enough about their compassion and quality of service. If you are ambivalent about going to the dentist, scared, anxious or like me terrified, this is the place to go. They are patient, kind and above all professional.”

Mary Hudachek-Buswell

“After 25 years, I would go nowhere else. Crowns, root canals, fillings, cleanings. All are done to perfection (Dr. Matalaga does not settle for less) and with little to no pain (I do not tolerate pain well).”
