What People Say About Dr. Matthew Leighton, DDS
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I broke my front tooth at 8:15 Friday night! Left a message on Dr. Leighton's phone, and he called back within 10 minutes, asking if I needed immediate attention. I did not, so he made an appointment to meet with me Saturday morning (when the practice is CLOSED) and he did! Spent two hours fixing the problem and I have nothing but Woohoo's for the practice! All office staff and dental staff are professional, on top of things, gentle, accurate and knowledgeable. No 'nervous fear' response when we have to go there!

My family and I have been patients since 1973, have been extremely pleased in this practice and are confident in receiving high quality dental care from all those who have cared for us over the many years. Dr. Leighton has been my dentist from the time he joined the practice, but all the dentists and office staff are always warm, welcoming, thorough, and provide excellent dental care.

Dr. Leighton is wonderful... He takes his time and tells you everything that he is doing before he even starts. I'm a big baby when it comes to the dentist, but I will be using Dr. Leighton for here on out. Everyone one at the office is very nice and helpful.

Dr. Leighton has been my dentist for over 5 years now and I cannot be any happier with the level of care for myself and my wife. I feel informed about the dental issues and apprised of all of the potential treatment options in language I can understand. The staff is friendly and supportive throughout the practice. They accommodate emergencies and are always ready to help. I feel like the focus is on my needs and issues whenever I go there.

Dr Leighton is very friendly and thorough. He makes sure all my questions are answered and also spent time explaining how a recent diagnosis will affect my dental health. I used to have a lot of dental anxiety, but since I've started seeing Dr Leighton I actually look forward to going to the dentist.
