Patient-Centered and Life-Improving Dental Care
Dr. Matthew F. Eckert has been practicing dentistry since 1993. He provides gentle care that improves smiles, relieves pain, and restores function, which allows people to enjoy life. Attentive and compassionate, he encourages patients to talk about their goals and concerns. He knows the best treatment and results come from individual treatment plans that address all of a patient’s needs, not just the clinical ones.
Dr. Eckert is proud of the care provided at Downtown Dental and honored by his long-term patients. He is now caring for the smiles of the children and grandchildren of some of his first patients. Warm and friendly, he strives to build lasting relationships with each person by learning about their lives, families, and interests.
Practicing dentistry in his home town, and helping his friends and neighbors attain optimal dental health and smiles they love, makes Dr. Eckert happy. He cannot imagine a more fulfilling profession.
