Hi well I can say that I am extremely delighted that I came here, many years ago I had seen an ad in the bill pad an advertising household thing I t comes in an envelope and I saw and ad for Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and I liked what his ad said about working with people who have anxieties and no criticisms no judgment dental and he would be willing to do sedation dentistry which is what I always had to have – so when I came he sat and had a wonderful consultation and he took 3 pages of notes, really listened to my whole history when I was a little girl and had bad experiences with the dentist, really developed all the fears and anxieties and I got a beautiful letter from him, and in that he recapped everything, he totally got me – and understood where I was coming from and his staff has been fantastic, they do everything they can to make you feel at ease, every step of the way he si telling me what he is going to do next, totally calming my fears, wave your hand Megan if something is still hurting let me give something I could not be happier coming here and it has been almost a year since I started and we, my teeth I can tell how much better my gums are and we did some scaling and it has been great, and he just redid 2 caps on my 2 front teeth and I think they look awesome. I truly you know the money is a big expense, but now that I see what I am investing in, it is just great – I just love, I can’t say – well I do love coming here because these folks are great and I am thrilled. – Meg Rasner.

They tell me how younger I look and I feel so much better, and I hope that I will be able to come in and meet his new friendly and dedicated staff again it is the best thing you can do for yourself. – Janet Hogun-Burn
Hi thanks, Dr. Steve I had multiple problems with my teeth, and as you can see my smile is back and it was something that I wanted to do for quite some time. Dr. Steve has been wonderful and the whole process has been one of the most positive experiences I have had in my life. When I first saw my smile I mean I am in construction and I am a tough guy I came into his office and I was brought to tears so it was – it overcame me and I am not going to cry in front of the cameras but I am – I will be honest and I was so grateful for my smile and Dr. Steve and it has been a wonderful positive experience in my life. Thank you so much. – Ralph
Hi, so I decided one day that I really wanted to have my teeth done because I was really unhappy. I came into Dr. Stephen Matarazzo’s office they made me feel so comfortable here. They did not judge me by the way my teeth looked at any time. My teeth look beautiful now with no pain. I’m happy; my life has changed and can’t say enough about this practice. You have to go for it – Cheryl Halloran
I came in to see Dr. Stephen Matarazzo I think about 6 months or so ago, very unhappy with my smile and my teeth, and I bought – I needed a change and I found the doctor just browsing through the web and was very happy from day 1 I know have my new teeth in they are dentures and I have been told by my youngest daughters that they are beautiful and they look natural like real teeth I am very happy I can get everything, I ate gum yesterday which I have not been able to eat for a long time – I don’t know if I can eat all gum but there is one particular brand of gum that I eat – I thoroughly enjoyed it I had corn on the cob, and I have not had to pick it out of my teeth I have just enjoyed all food so far and I have had no problem whatsoever and I a, very happy with my smile now.
So I knocked my 2 front teeth out when I was 12 years old, and so I am 23 now so for the past 11 years I have been having different procedures done on my front teeth, I have had bonding and I was finally looking to get something more permanent so I came to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo, at first I was a little bit nervous but now as you can see my front teeth look super natural and they feel great in my mouth and the whole procedure was really easy and I am really happy with how it all turned out – Siobhan.
I fell when I was in a hotel and I broke my top 4 teeth, 3 of which were broken and half one was pretty severely fractured. I had known about Dr. Dr. Steve through my husband and who had, had work done there so I came to see him and had a great experience. Came in a couple of times took everything step by step, and everything was explained to me very clearly and I never had any questions about what was going on, and I had a very good experience as you can see everything – is that where to should be – so I am very happy with everything that was done.
Hi this is Dr. Steve and this is one of our nice patients Kirk, and he was nice enough to share his little story with us about this experience here – so kirk take it away. Well my teeth used to be in very rough shape and it was kind of a lost cause and I started needing some dentists that were amazing and they got the word out that I needed some help, and Dr. Stephen Matarazzo was kind enough to give me a call and we got together to get things fixed up and I could not be happier about it – le the pictures speak for themselves! And now when you seem you may notice my smile first but in a way that is an exact opposite that has been noticed previously – when people see me with my old smile they say oh that is a very intense face there and now when they see me – they see my personality a little bit at first and a very nice smile – Dr. Stephen Matarazzo corrected it for me. Yeah they got past – someone doesn’t like the way you smile it kind of blocks them from seeing you – exactly what you said Kirk even though you were there in real – you were happy before we fixed the smile – you were the happiest guy I ever met. Happier yeah, but you were pretty happy before and grateful for life and it’s just let people get to know you a little more. Yeah it acme a lot of times people would see my smile and you can kind of see in their face that it took a bit of getting used to, but you know once that happens then everything was fine but yeah I feel like you know when I meet kids now they don’t look at my face and have their eye wide for the first couple of minutes, they kind of warm up now – yeah it came as quite a shock. Thank you for sharing this story and so it has been a lot of fun and I am glad to have you choose us to help you. You could have gone to any number of fabulous dentists, and so glad you chose us. I am very grateful and glad!
My name is Carmen Mignones I am originally from Guatemala – I was born with cleft palate and I had a broken smile all my life, until somebody referred me to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and he changed my life, the rest of my life forever. I was very conscious about my smile and he changed that. I remember the first time I came to visit him – he took over he changed the faulty bridge I had and he said you are not walking out of here with those, teeth if you want to call it that, and then he set me up for another appointment to have me go through the process of getting a new brand new bridge that changed my life forever. It gave me renewed confidence and now I am more smiley – I am the most smiliest of the office and everywhere I go. I have a very good reason to do that and that is all thanks to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo. Thank you.
Ok so just introduce yourself. Hello my name is Ed. So Ed how did you feel about going to the dentist in your experiences before coming to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo? Well before I went I was scared, I did not know what to expect, and then the first thing I had done was a root canal, and then after that – I was I had another thing done with Dr. Stephen Matarazzo’s father. From then he referred me and I was still sacred to show up until I had one of my teeth fixed and I felt accountable in going. Then he gave me different options, to do and I waited it out and I was trying to hold out as much as I can to save my teeth and get to the point where I could not even chew spaghetti anymore. I had a couple of things done and I had to make up a decision, so I decided to have it done and I was still scared – it was a long process, but now, I feel great, I feel better – I smile and I am more outgoing and I feel much better, and hat is the best thing I have ever done – it is the best thing I have invested in next to my house – it is right up there. Okay Ed so here is your after picture. Wow! Amazing right? Wow really what do you think about that? It is great, really great – compared to before? Oh I would not not be smiling before. Oh yeah? That is amazing – I would never be smiling. You look great, good job! Yeah that is weird; I usually never smile like that even before. Yeah you cover up your mouth not like now.
Hi this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo this is one of our patients – Collin. Collin, how long have you been a patient here? I think it has been – I think we did the mouth guard was the first thing we did – about 6 months ago maybe a year. Yeah about a year. So when you came to me, how did you find me? I acutely found you online – I had some problems with my jaw and clenching at night and so I did some research online and found your name. And didn’t your dentist in any other town mention me too I think? Yeah Mike Meyers had mentioned my name and you checked me out online. Yeah I think that is right. So tell me what you r jaw situation was when you came to see me. Well I was having problems at night; I tried some with the mouth guards that you buy sort of CDS yeah. And they just they were not alleviating the strain in my jaw every morning I would wake up with a sort of muscle tense and tight and sort of painful, and I would not sleep so well, and that was certainly a problem. Then I came in here and we talked about it, and we talked about you and you mentioned that my jaw was not aligned and it was not sort of closing, and my back teeth were heading for my front teeth, and you said I was a perfect candidate for the mouth guard and after a little hemming and hawing on my part we deiced. It was a big decision – yes it was expensive. Yeah but I think it has been right. So you know I am sleep-in better, and my jaw is not fatigued or you know hurting in the morning and so it helps. So your jaw feels better and the muscles hurt a lot less? Yes and the key is how much you are wearing it. Do you wear it every night? I wear it every night – you are an excellent patient. I get concerned if I am away that I left it at home, I don’t want my jaw – I don’t want to wake up in the morning having that pain again, and I know that I am rubbing my teeth and I know that I am doing damage to them, and every dentist I have been to, said I am shaving off my back molars by doing that so I get concerned about that, but now I don’t have to. Excellent – I am glad you had success with it. I mean it is a big deal you did not know me when you came in too much, and you know it was a lot of money to get it fixed and it certainly seems like it is working out for you. Yeah but you know it certainly gets to a point where you need to do something about it you know. Yeah – well you are good, you didn’t delay you could have but you didn’t and you acted and it is working out for ya! Well thank you Collin, thank you
Hi this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and this is one of our favorite patients Dan Zep. He is a former Boston college football star and good friend. I am going got pull a fast one on him, I am going to show him pictures of what he looked like the day he came in. what do you think of that? Scary – absolutely – I think I was in a completely different place my teeth had been bothering me for years, in terms of root canals and having to do and having to have every few years having to have my root canal reupholstered hat worked while I was younger and while I was playing football and as I got older and then moved into a more professional career that needed solid teeth and I had to worry about my dental background – it was something I really needed to take more seriously and now, form then to now it looks completely different and I look more confident professional and the work that I went to I feel better about meeting someone for the first time. Confident with that smile vs. before what I had to worry about – will my teeth be the same colour or they might not be a straight as I would like so I have come a long way in that regard and I feel very positive about my experience with Dr. Stephen Matarazzo. He has been a friend a support and ally, and him and his staff have been one thing but supportive form day 1 – helped me financially take care of my teeth and helped me consistently keep my teeth healthy which I contribute to my professionalism and the work I went into. I wish I was working with a lot of people so it is really important that I look my best so thank you Dr. Stephen Matarazzo. You are welcome, I am looking at that picture and you have been doing a lot of work in the last coupe of years. How any ponds do you think you have lost. Oh geez from this picture I would say from both of these pictures – at one point I was 290 pounds. A football player. Some of these pictures I am 260 pounds, I am around 230 pounds now again something that went along with my teeth in terms of caring about the way I look, taking care of myself overall keeping a healthy body which I think starts with the teeth. Thanks Dan it has been fun – really appreciate it,
Hello this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and this is one of our friends Anne and she is here to tell you a little bit about her experience here and how did you find this Anne? How did you find out office? Oh my younger son he was here before he makes the implant so I asked him where to go do the important and he told me – he said just got o Dr. Stephen Matarazzo, he told me that. And he’ll take care of you. Yes. So here is a picture of what you looked like before we started, right there what do you think of that? Terrible! Well you didn’t know the difference and no dentist really le you know what was happening. And then you go to that – look so much better. Yeah, now you are not embarrassed – yeah. I can smile now! You are smiling in that picture! Look at it up close, a nice smile! Oh yes! So you are glad you came to see us? Oh yeah – I am so glad – but it costs a lot of money – you are absolutely right. Yeah, it cost a lot of money and nowadays everything cost a lot of money – I understand that. It is crazy I agree with you a hundred percent, but it was a lot of fun meeting you and taking care of you. Thank you! Sometimes it costs a little more money it is fine, at least I am very happy! Exactly – perfect. It worth it! Yeah – sometimes you do small money but you are not happy, right. So this is the most imprint thing you had a lot of things done, implants, crowns – I could not have said it better. I am so happy! Alright perfect.
Hi, this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and we have one of our relatively new patients here – Michelle. And she had agreed to share a little bit about her experience with us. Thanks Michelle. I have been having pain in my jaw for align time I have had problems with TMJ and I have been to many dentist about it – who were not able to help me or suggest anything probably from Dr. Stephen Matarazzo he suggested I get a night guard. The main problems that I was having that made me want to get the night guard was the pain in my jaw – my jaw as locked, and I had really bad migraines, I ground my teeth at night, and I was awaking up all the time with migraines and I could not get them to go away. So after talking with my husband we decided that day to go ahead and get the night guard and I am so glad that I did – from the minute I put it on I decided to wear it as much as I possibly could – at home, driving in the car, sleep-in at night – and I noticed a huge difference already. My jaw has not been locking up and I don’t feel that pain first thing in the morning, and I don’t get as may migraines. I did mention to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo I did forget it a couple of nights and I regretted it the next morning. I woke up and of course my jaw was locking it was really tense, my husband said I was grinding again at night and of course I had a migraine and I won’t be forgetting anymore and I really enjoyed it and I am looking forward to keep wearing it and seeing the difference it made for me, it’s only been a couple of weeks, and it is making a huge difference already. Thanks Michelle thank you.
I feel like I am slurring now – hi this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and this is one of our patients Teresa, and she has agreed to tell us a story about what was bothering her when she came in and what the results were, so Tracy if you can just tell us in your own words, what was he problem when you came in to see us? I went to see a dentist who pulled out most of my teeth, except for a few on the bottom, and gave me dentures that were oaky when I was – when I had the teeth out but one of my gums started to shrinking it was like they had just floated all over my mouth. I had to use all sorts of you know denture cream and those little pads and all sorts of things to hold them in my mouth and I could only wear them for a half hour a time because I just could not even talk with them. So I came here, and now I don’t even have to put anything in my mouth except for my dentures, and I can’t tell you how happy I am with the results for my – it is like night and day – it really is! How has it affected your life? Well that’s the whole thing it has been so long since I have being able to laugh or smile or do anything. It was actually my family that finally said – wow what a difference you know you are actually laughing and smiling and you don’t mind having your picture taken any more you know. It really made a huge difference. Wonderful – that is a wonderful story and we are glad we were able to help you. You have no idea. At Christmas time and thanksgiving – I was able to eat without having problems, and my family s the one that really made such a big difference because I dint notice how depressed I was and they did, and you can’t put a value on that you really cant. Yeah you can’t put a value on that and I am really happy. Thank you Teresa! You are welcome anytime!
Hi, this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo, we are here with our friend David and he is going to tell us a little bit of story of why they came to us and what happened. David if you could help us – sure. I think I obviously had some serious issues with my teeth, it was something that had bothered me or quite some time, and years of neglect took its toll. I finally got the confidence to build up a relationship with a dentist and from day 1 Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and I walked a great distance over the last few years. Much more confidence now, and I am just thrilled to death with the outcome of my teeth. Beautiful! I want to show how good it looks. This is before we whitened the teeth – you can see here. Do you feel good about how far we came? Yes. That is how we started together. It is embarrassing – the transformation is amazing. Look at just the bottom teeth and all we did on the bottom was straightening them, and do the cavities with white fillings. Look at how clean and nice those look! They look great! So it has been a pleasure and I wanted to work with you – and it is just amazing. So you feel a difference in your life? Absolutely – much more confidence and I feel I have accomplished better opportunities. Life changing move that we made. Albright – you had the courage and I had the courage to do it. Really! I will never forget the day. You know I was waiting for a buddy outside the diner and it was just something I had been brewing for a while and for whatever reason that was the day. So you were talking to a friend. No I was just talking to myself and I was having some quiet time in the car and that was day 1 to the next chapter. That is like a lot of things – where you have to hit bottom before you start going up. I know with my weight loss and things, I really just had – I knew for years I had to do something and I just had to be alone and think about it and how I wanted the rest of my life to go. So congratulations that took courage. Thank you – ok buddy thank you!
Hi this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and this is Cindy – she has been a patient here for a few years, she was nice enough to tell us a little bit of her story to us. How long do you think we met Cindy? 3 years ago, yeah? And before we met tell me about the different dentist you saw and what they told you? Well I have been to general dentists, periodontist, cosmetic dentist, little bit of everybody. Orthodontist. You went for years and what ended up happening? Well I had Invisalign for 3 years. Mhmm I needed so many different things, a lot of dental work, I was definitely afraid of the dentist. What was your major worry or concerns – what the major goal you were trying to accomplish? Just to have a perfect smile – I wanted that Hollywood look, that holy woo smile – that was what I was going for that was what I wanted. Well what happened here? I ended up with that Hollywood smile. Alright! I got it, I got what I wanted. All right! And remember the day you came in with you husband? I do! Pretty much I was definitely afraid – you were crying from day 1 but- I am going to cry now (patient gets emotional) you walked through it, you courageously wen through it and you took a leap of faith and trusted us and everything came out beautiful – why- I feel metal that I did it and that I ended up it what I wanted because of you. And John your husbands- so much is important with a husband supporting the wife, and vice versa – but this never happens. I can’t believe I am crying. Can I get you a tissue? Sure. Here we go – thank you. Oh well, I lie to overdo things. Alright – Cindy was very nervous for doing this story for us and I don’t want to drag it out too long, alright – when you look back at the whole thing, you spent a ton of money too. What do you tin you spent between everything – I mean it’s just crazy. From day 1 of working on my teeth? Yeah – between you and Dr. Alkhany? 50? 50 60 thousand easy? But this is what I wanted all my life. You did it! Alright thank you!
Hi this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo – one of our patients Wendy is nice enough to agree to share a couple of ideas and personal stories with us. Ok well I had a terrible time with my implants that I had put in about probably 5 6 years ago, they became infected and uncomfortable and you had to remove them and because I lost a lot of bone and it was tricky when placing new implants so i could chew so i went almost a year without being able to chew. So through the healing process and one step at a time I have my bottom and my new uppers to match the bottoms, I am thrilled and I am very comfortable. Now you have only finished last week – only a week and what do you eat now? I actually had corn on the cobb this weekend for the first time in years. it has been 5 years since you have been managing with this. Yeah very comfortable they don’t move and they don’t shift in and out. Amazing – yes well thank you Wendy! I am glad you had a good success story.
Hi this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and this is one of our friends and patients, Amanda and she has been nice enough to agree to tell us a little bit about her story. So I have been coming to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo my whole life, and I still had a baby tooth n my mouth that was aching, and I wanted to get it pulled out and I was scared to death. I was talking to him about going to an oral surgeon so I could be sedated or put to sleep but then I decided to stay here and work with him, and have him sedate me using oral pills, tat just kind of knocks me out a little bit and i honestly don’t remember anything, everything went smoothly it was perfect, and I have been feeling great ever since. Thanks Amanda!
Well this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and this is one of our patients we have known for quite a long time – Carol and she is going to share a little bit about her story here. I have been seeing Dr. Stephen Matarazzo for many years, and my teeth over the years have really protruded and it has been just unbelievable and I am so thankful to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and the whole staff are changing my whole look, my teeth – I am so pleased with my teeth that they have come out such a big difference and I have such a better attitude about myself. Mhmm, such a big difference and much better. You look like a different person. Yeah I feel like – I look and feel like a different person, I feel much better. More confidence in myself, a much better smile and I am very pleased. Thank you very much. And you took a chance – you did not know what it was going to look like and I was scared and I probably should have done this many years ago but because it was a big step and I did not know what it was going to be and what I was going through it was kind of scary – if you don’t mind sharing. You invested an awful lot of time and money in yourself and if you had a guess – what do you think you spent between Dr. Mone and I – about 60,000 dollars. That is a lot of money, a big investment and you are glad you did it? I am it just makes me look like a whole different person and at least I can smile with confidence now and I feel better about myself. Yes thank you. Thank you for sharing that and thanks for trusting us. Thank you very much I appreciate it. You are welcome thank you Steve. You did great.
