Some Exciting Changes

There are bitter-sweet staff changes going on this month at Matheson Dental. Our lovely assistant Amy is heading out on an LDS mission to Seattle in just a couple of weeks. We've enjoyed having Amy here in our office! She's become a great assistant, friend, and overall addition here. We're sad to see her go but excited for what lies ahead!

Maria                                   Amy

In her place, we hope you'll help us welcome Maria to Matheson Dental! We couldn't be more excited to have her here with us. She's learning fast and  her infectious sense of humor has already brightened the mood of both staff and patients in the office. We hope you'll enjoy her as much as we do!

Did You Know?

Here at Matheson Dental we strive to work with many different insurance companies in order to better serve our patients. We have a list of the insurance companies accepted in our office on the right side of this blog and under the Accepted Insurance tab. This list is updated frequently to ensure that the correct information is there for your fast and easy referral.

On occasion there are unique qualifiers that sometimes determine insurance coverage in our office. These qualifiers are not often listed on insurance cards and therefore, can be hard to identify. We would like to provide you with information about these qualifiers to avoid problems that arise from the confusion.

HMO/DMO vs PPO plans: At Matheson Dental we accept plans from all the insurance companies listed on our blog. However, some of these insurance companies participate in different types of plans. Most of these plans have a list of providers from which patients can choose. These types are typically known as PPO, Premier, or regular plans. Some insurance companies also offer HMO or DMO plans. With these plans, a patient may only go to one dentist or doctor who is specified by the insurance company.

We do not participate with DMO or HMO plans here at Matheson Dental. Be sure to check on your specific insurance plan to find out what type of plan you have. If you are not sure how to do this or have any questions regarding HMO or DMO plans, give us a call. We'd be happy to offer you assistance in any way we can!

Ever Wondered??

Have you ever wondered about the fluoride levels in your drinking water? Why do we need fluoride anyway?

Dr. Matheson provides fluoride treatments and recommends finding out the fluoride levels in your water because proper amounts of fluoride can help fortify tooth enamel, strengthen developing teeth, and help reduce tooth sensitivity. However, excessive amounts of fluoride can be toxic. This is why checking the fluoride levels in your drinking water is so important.

According to, "Optimal fluoride levels recommended by the U.S. Public Health Service and CDC for drinking water range from 0.7 parts per million (ppm) for warmer climates to 1.2 ppm for cooler climates to account for the tendency for people to drink more water in warmer climates."

To find out about your drinking water, simply visit and click on My water's fluoride. You can also click here to be led directly to the CDC's interactive map.

Spring is Here!

Goodbye Mr. Snowman and welcome Spring! Fitting for the season, the staff at Matheson Dental is undergoing some radical changes. First off, we'll be saying goodbye to Sarah who will be graduating from Westminster College and beginning her Master's program this May. In her place, we've hired the beautiful Janiemae! She'll be graduating from Skyline High School and starting up at SLCC while working at our office. We couldn't be more excited to have her cute smile at the front desk. Be sure to say hi when you see her! Our Dental Assistant Amy is also leaving us in June or July. She's getting ready to go on an LDS Mission and can't wait! All of these changes are coming up fast but we're ready to take them on.

We'd like to congratulate Dr. Matheson on his brand new baby granddaughter, Mia Claire Matheson :) She was born in November 18th to Dr. Matheson's oldest son and daughter-in-law. This healthy baby girl has stolen the heart of the good old Doctor and everyone else in the office.

Congratulations :)
