I’ve been seeing Dr Matthes for several years and I’ve never enjoyed seeing a provider – let alone a dentist – more than seeing Dr Matthes. He really makes you feel like you’re in good hands and he has such passion for dentistry. Very thorough cleanings and knowledgeable about his craft. He’s always so hospitable and works so hard to make sure his patients feel cared for. His office is well organized and everyone I’ve met is as warm and prompt as him. Centrally located as well!

Best Dentist I’ve ever been to. I’ve had my fair sure of a going to bad dentist office and I’ve been scared and traumatized since. But going to see Dr. Matthes he calms you down and makes you feel super comfortable even if you are scared of going to see a dentist. I’ve been going here for a few years now and just got 2 wisdom teeth extracted loved how he made me feel at ease. I highly recommend this dentist as I will be seeing him every time.

Dr Matthes and his staff were all very pleasant and professional. Very knowledgeable and explained everything throughout the process. Great bedside manner…friendly staff. It’s difficult to find a good dentist in NYC and this was my first time at his office for a standard cleaning/check up. He was very thorough and efficient. They handled my insurance quickly and made sure that they were only performing services that my insurance would cover. Definitely plan on sticking with him and would recommend others looking for a dentist to consider his office

Ed W. from Brooklyn, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’m writing a very rare review because my recent experience with Dr. John Matthes, DDS, his assistant, and his office staff was extraordinary. Dr. Matthes was recommended by my longtime dentist of 15 years who just now retired. Before my visit the front desk receptionists took my insurance information and immediately contacted me (as I had requested) to say that their office did not take my particular plan. Regardless – I decided it was important to visit because I wanted to take my previous dentist’s recommendation. Dr. Matthes and his assistant first took a full set of X-rays, examined each tooth meticulously (one hour), and then spent an hour+ methodically cleaning my teeth/gums as I have serious periodontal issues. The best cleaning – ever!! Afterward, Dr. Matthes took a generous amount of time going over numerous options for care and other practices that would work within my insurance plan’s framework. He was extremely personable, clear, and genuine. I sincerely appreciated his kind and gentle manner as he went over my choices for optimal dental health. Afterward, his attentive staff quickly provided me with the needed support information for a periodontal specialist and another dental practice. Like most patients in their 60s, I have had met many health care practitioners and Dr. John Matthes is superior. Even though his office could not take my insurance plan, I will visit him periodically (out of pocket) – as I trust his sound expert advice and know that he genuinely cares about my well-being. Thank you to him and his team!!

What can I say, living in the a city such as New York and always on the move makes certain things hard to get around to, especially getting to a dentist outside the usual business hours. What is great about Dr. Matthes and his practice is they cater to the working individual and have hours outside the standard 8-5pm. I found it awesome to be able to come in for a 7pm or 8pm appointment, even offering me a Saturday afternoon appointment if needed, making it easy and not needing to skip work or take time away from work. Aside from the hours, his personality and depth of knowledge in the dental field is outstanding. Additionally, how thorough he is and explain each step and making sure you understand what he is doing and why, was a great experience. From the very first moment, I felt that I was at the right place and had the right guy for my dental needs. I would highly recommend anyone who does not have a dentist stop in for a check up and cleaning, you will not regret it, I promise you. Great job Dr. Matthes!

Sarah C. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never reviewed a dentist before, but Dr. Matthes is a notch above the rest. He did the most thorough cleaning and exam I’ve ever received. He seems like he really cares about giving the patient the best possible treatment, and will recommend only what he feels is truly needed. (You can trust that he won’t be trying to find ways to add on extra fees.) He explained everything to me in detail and made sure that I understand my options. I’ve never felt so confident that my teeth are in good hands.

Julia R. (Source: Zocdoc)


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, as well as terrific assistant stayed late to finish the job. Excellent dentist, I highly reccommend.

Jason R. (Source: Zocdoc)


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

Julia H. (Source: Zocdoc)


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 when I 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!

Galina U. (Source: Zocdoc)


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 naturally carrying 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

Taylor G. (Source: Zocdoc)


Chose him based reviews and proximity to work/insurance, and I am beyond relieved and pleased. Pleasant, competant, didn’t try to sell me on anything and wasn’t judgmental of my homeopathic practices (recognized the benefits and gave me good advice for how to modify). I’ve found my dentist!

Termeh M. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr Matthes exceeded all my expectations! He was incredibly thorough with the check-up and cleaning (never felt rushed!); his recommendations were precise and easy to understand; and he obviously genuinely cares about his patients’ well being. His receptionist – Freddy – is also great! An excellent experience all around.

Michelle F. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Matthes just gets it. He genuinely cares about his craft and his patients. I came to him seven months ago with a long history of bad teeth and today they’re in better shape than I’d even hoped for. I always joke with him and his staff that I’m sick of coming back, but they’re such genuinely good and capable people, I actually sort of enjoy trips to the dentist! If all health care professionals were half as enthusiastic and dedicated as Dr. Matthes, our health would be in good hands

Behnaz B. (Source: Zocdoc)


I’ve only seen Dr Matthes twice but I can tell that he is a very humble and honest. He’s very educational and takes his time to answer and thoroughly explain any question you may have. And since he does take his time with his patient there may be a little waiting time but in the grand scheme of things, that’s completely fine. I definitely recommend him!

Zareda N. (Source: Zocdoc)


I was looking for a dentist I can trust for some time and thankfully I found Dr. Matthes. He’s very knowledgeable, patient, and makes comprehensive care a priority. Given a past traumatic dentist experience, I would highly recommend him to anyone who’s ever had one as well.

Dana P. (Source: Zocdoc)


I highly recommend Dr. Matthes. I just moved to the area and was looking for a new dentist and I’m so glad I found this practice. Dr. Matthes was very friendly, took his time and guided me through the appointment. I felt very comfortable and am going to recommend my friends to see him as well.

Michelle F. (Source: Zocdoc)


Today I had my third appointment with Dr. Matthes and he continues to be awesome. Always takes his time to do perfect work, explains everything thoroughly, is super friendly and accommodating of his patients’ working hours. By far the best dentist I’ve ever had. His hygienist is a sweetheart too.

Sydney L. (Source: Zocdoc)


My experience at Dr. Matthes’ office was phenomenal. Like anyone, I typically dread going to the dentist — let alone finding one in NYC for the first time. However, Dr. Mattes is extremely professional and personable, making you feel at ease as soon as you arrive with great bedside manner. Not only was the cleaning very thorough, but he was very attentive to my concerns and took the time to explain the specific details of my visit/treatment. 10/10, would recommend!

I love Dr. Matthes! Been his patient since he first opened and I never looked back since. So personable and makes you feel like family. Dr. Matthes also does an amazing job at eliminating the dreaded dentist phobia many of us have. He also makes sure to go in depth and goes above and beyond to deliver amazing service. Do not hesitate to book with him. Wishing you continued success to you Dr Matthes and your practice 🙂

Hollis W. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


It’s rare for dentists to do cleanings themselves rather than delegating to an assistant. Dr. Matthes gives the most thorough yet gentle cleanings I’ve ever had. The man is a perfectionist. He was also conservative about recommending additional work, which I appreciated. Everyone was friendly and professional. The office was well maintained. Matthes Dental is as perfect a provider as I could ask for.

Gary R. from Hewlett, NY (Source: Yelp)


I am a recently retired dentist with 36 years experience.My Dad is in his late 80’s. He broke a tooth recently and since I was no longer practicing had to find him a good and caring dentist near him. Found Dr. Matthes did research, spoke to him and had him see my dad. His office and staff couldn’t be nicer.He truly is a caring and detail oriented professional.He treated my dad with gentleness and kindness while doing his dental procedures by the book. In these times it’s rare to see any doctor that is willing to give this much time and effort. Take it from someone that knows.

Sarah M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


You will never go to a dentist as caring, thorough, perfectionist, and overall wonderful. I found Dr. Matthes via reviews on ZocDoc- was the first time I ever chose a healthcare professional based on reviews and I was a little wary. But his reviews were so uniformly great that I took the chance and I wasn’t the slightest bit disappointed. In fact I felt like I hit the dentist lotto!! Dr. Matthes took the time to explain the x ray results and all needed work extremely clearly and to answer any questions. He is conservative on recommending work, which I appreciated. He isn’t chomping at the bit (no pun intended) to get in there and do stuff. I had a couple of procedures done and felt in excellent, caring, meticulous hands. The whole experience of dealing with his office is lovely also: everyone is polite, friendly, professional, attentive and generally kind. If a dentist’s practice can feel like a home away from home than this is the one! Highly recommend Dr. Matthes and will never go to anybody else.

Lucia P. from Woodside, NY (Source: Yelp)


Ok, so if I am writing two reviews you know its because I am more than happy, I am just is disbelief. Doctor Matthes is ONE OF A KIND. Everyone there, Freddy, the receptionist, John’s Assistant, very humble and sincere people. Can you believe that? An honest dentist??? But the work…please. I had a crown done, and let me tell you that never ever have I had a crown that fitted the first time I tried it. You know how always, after they order the crown and it comes, they have to start working on it and lowering it and drilling. NO WAY WITH THIS DENTIST!!!! My crown came and he just took the temporary, tested the permanent, took an x-ray to ensure it was closed and well prepared, and put it in and that’s that!!!! I AM TELLING YOU. I have a cousin is Dominican Republic who is a dentist and he is awesome and the work is cheap for me, but this doctor is so sweet, that I just rather come to him! If you look at my reviews you will see I am a tough grader, but just leave your current dentist that wants to charge you off the bazooka and come try doctor Matthes, you will not regret it. I may though because he no longer be my little secret 🙁

John Matthes is a unique find in this City. He has Midwest values and it shows. And his staff are kind and professional. He truly loves his work and when he says he goes home happier at the end of the day then he was at the start of the day, I believe him. He loves helping people who have dental problems. I tend to ask a lot of questions because I am curious by nature. John not only takes the time to answer my questions but does so in a manner that is cheerful and understandable. A broken tooth emergency brought me to him and I now have two temporary crowns which will soon be replaced by permanent ones. The care he takes in doing things RIGHT is so wonderful to experience in this day of instant gratification. He combines the science of dentistry with the skill of an artist. The quality of his temporary crowns is an example of this. You will be treated like family. And that’s nice, especially when you’re dealing with dental problems and anxiety

Michelle F. (Source: Zocdoc)


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 need but still carefully monitors potential problems as they develop. 10/10 I will cry if he ever leaves NYC. (Freddy is the best, too.)

Geoff C. (Source: Zocdoc)


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 he really enjoys his job. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment if you are looking for a new dentist.

Dana M. (Source: Zocdoc)


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 underneath it, 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.

Jeffrey H. (Source: Zocdoc)


I’ll just echo all the other positive reviews by saying that Dr. Matthes is incredibly thorough and makes you feel comfortable about the work being done. Really nice guy and great experience all around. His team is also very professional with appointment reminders and scheduling. Cannot recommend Dr. Matthes enough!

Marie Therese G. (Source: Zocdoc)


You’d be hard pressed to find a more attentive, friendly, and caring dentist in New York City and maybe even anywhere! I have seen Dr. Matthew twice now after having chosen him based on his excellent reviews on here and elsewhere. It’s the first time I selected a health care professional online rather than via referral. The experience was much better than I even anticipated and Dr. Matthes has given me a new-found enthusiasm towards dentists. I can’t imagine anyone else spending as much time and showing as much attention to detail and excellence as him. In addition he makes sure you feel comfortable and understand what he’s doing. I highly recommend him. And his office is managed beautifully on top of it all with the nicest and most attentive front office I have ever encountered at a doctor’s office

Jessica T. (Source: Zocdoc)


My first visit with Dr. Matthes was impeccable! Upon entering the office I was greeted by both Dr. Matthes and Fred at the front desk. I immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. I got called in and Dr. Matthes explained the game plan for my visit. Got my x-rays done, gum check and cleaning. I NEVER have gotten a gum check done before. I felt like I was in great hands. Dr. Matthes himself is very personable, knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable. I have now found THE dentist. I would highly recommend going to Dr. Matthes for all your dental needs! 🙂

Carly C. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Matthes is great! He’s professional, but very friendly and takes time to explain everything. He clearly cares about helping people and providing good service. He’s also young and enthusiastic (read: not jaded or bored). I just went for an overdue cleaning and he got me in good shape. Will definitely keep him as my regular dentist. I chose him based on other zocdoc reviews – looks like that worked out!

Claire M. (Source: Zocdoc)


Blown away by Dr. Matthes’ attention to detail and care paid to every patient who steps into his office. I’ve never had such a thorough dental cleaning and exam in my life while simultaneously learning so much about my teeth! His passion for his profession easily shines through and is so refreshing – especially in New York City!

Macarena A. (Source: Zocdoc)


This was my first time seeing a dentist in 5 years. I was so nervous, but it turned out to be for nothing! Dr. Matthes saw me right away, and was beyond friendly, and even made me laugh. He genuinely cares. He really took his time in explaining every step to devise a treatment plan, going tooth by tooth and ensuring that I understood everything. Incredibly thourough! I’m so glad I found a dentist I can trust and continue to see. I’m going to recommend him to everyone I know!

Bobby B. (Source: Zocdoc)


I have a lot of work that needs to be done, so finding the right dentist is an essential first step. I feel like I hit the jackpot with Dr. Matthes. He is a kind, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable dentist. He put me at ease and kept me informed each step of the visit. For the first time in my life, I look forward to my next dentist visit – what more can you ask for?

Zoe M. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr Matthes is by far the best dentist I’ve seen in the city. At my initial visit, Dr Matthes took the time to do X-rays and fully explained what he needed to do. I had three cavities filled – including the replacement of a filling that was poorly done by a previous dentist. Dr Matthes took his time, was extremely thorough, and he was very nice about my low tolerance to pain. In fact, for the first time, the fillings didn’t hurt! I will definitely be back for any future dental work.
