Happy 30th Birthday to our fantastic Front Desk Coordinator, Holly M!!!

We all will be enjoying some cupcakes made by our hygienist, Holly L and fruit pizza made by Dr. Matta, to be followed by thorough brushing and flossing of course

Everyone wish Holly a happy birthday in the comments!

[08/11/20]   Due to the storm that came through yesterday, the office is still without power. We are currently closed for this morning and may need to close for the afternoon if power is not restored. We are contacting patients who have appointments that may be affected. We appreciate your patience and will be happy to help you all as soon as we are able!

Matta Family Dental is open! We have been seeing patients for a few weeks and are excited to take care of everyone again. Dr. Matta and Holly are all geared up, as is the rest of the team!

We are taking every precaution to ensure everyone's safety. This includes:
-Screening questions to keep potentially sick people home
-Not utilizing the waiting room and having people wait in their cars and call when they arrive
-Scheduling patients so that they are not entering or exiting at the same time
-Installing plexiglass screens at the front desk to minimize aerosols
-Taking temperatures upon entering
-Having everyone wear a mask until they are in a treatment room
-Wiping down all shared surfaces in common areas with Caviwipes after every patient, including: all door handles and knobs, pens, the signature pad, the credit card machine, countertops, sink knobs, light switches, the toilet seat, etc
-Having patients swish with Peroxyl mouthrinse before any procedure
-Continual handwashing and hand sanitizer use throughout the day
These efforts are in addition to all the usual thorough disinfection and sterilization procedures we have always done to protect our patients.

If you need an appointment or have any questions, please give us a call - 515.993.3522. We look forward to seeing you!

Matta Family Dental will be reopening next week, starting May 18th! Things will look and operate a little differently than before, because we are taking every precaution to keep ourselves and our patients safe and healthy.

Iowa Dental Board Guidelines for the Safe Transition Back to Practice | Iowa Dental Board

Matta Family Dental is committed to providing excellent dental care while keeping our patients and ourselves safe. We are planning on reopening on May 18th. We are taking the time between then and now to acquire the appropriate personal protective equipment and train our employees, as per the new dental board guidelines: https://dentalboard.iowa.gov/press-release/2020-05-05/iowa-dental-board-guidelines-safe-transition-back-practice

We will be instituting new procedures for appointments to ensure everyone's safety. Check here for future updates. We look forward to seeing you, safely!


[04/28/20]   *****UPDATE*****

Due to the governor's updated emergency proclamation, Matta Family Dental will be closed for any non-emergency care until May 18th. We are taking this time to prepare our office for the safety of our wonderful patients and employees when we return.

For those with appointments scheduled between now and May 18th, we will be in contact to reschedule those visits. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the office at 515.993.3522 or email [email protected]

Take care of yourselves, keep your social distance, wear your masks, wash your hands, and we'll look forward to seeing you when we can!

[04/20/20]   As of this time, the emergency proclamation by the governor extends to the end of April. We are planning on reopening for non-emergency patients as of 8am on May 4th, subject to change. We will be taking additional precautions to ensure the safety of patients and ourselves.

Check here on Facebook for updates. Feel free to message or call the office if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you!

April 1st, 2020 - the seventh anniversary of Matta Family Dental! While we would have usually been taking care of our wonderful patients on a Wednesday, we are staying closed to any non-emergencies to protect our patients and staff until the Governor lifts the State Public Health Emergency Proclamation, currently until May 4th.

Instead, Dr. Matta spent this beautiful day riding her bike on the Raccoon River Valley Trail to the office to donate any extra PPE (personal protective equipment) that we could spare. We certainly hope that the 5 boxes of masks, 10 boxes of gloves, and 2 containers of disinfecting wipes help protect as many as possible! Please practice social distancing, keep yourselves healthy, and we can’t wait until we can get back to taking care of patients safely!

*****Attention Patients of Matta Family Dental*****

The American Dental Association and Iowa Dental Association are now recommending that dental offices only see emergency patients for everyone’s safety.

Out of an abundance of caution, and for the continued safety of our patients and staff, we are closing Matta Family Dental starting today until April 6 for all non-emergency patients. We will reevaluate as the situation evolves. Thank you for your understanding

***UPDATE: Matta Family Dental is closed to non-emergency patients until May 4th.***

At this time, Matta Family Dental is open and seeing patients. Our patients’ safety and well-being always comes first. In consideration of COVID-19, we have taken the following steps to ensure everyone’s safety while also being able to continue to provide dental care. We always employ universal precautions and take the utmost care in proper infection control. Additionally, we are making sure to wipe common surfaces such as door handles, light switches, sink knobs, chairs, and front desk counters with our professional strength disinfecting wipes throughout the day. Shared items such as magazines and children’s books have been removed from the waiting room. We ask that anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, runny nose, sore throat, cough), has been in contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19, is otherwise not feeling well, or has traveled recently to please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We're ready to roll! Be sure to flag us down in the parade and get the best chapstick around! We love the Adel Sweet Corn Festival! 🌽🌽🌽

Ready for the Adel Sweet Corn Festival? Come see us in the parade and handing out floss in the corn line!🌽

A lot can happen in six years, but we've always kept our promise to provide a higher standard of care for our patients. We're proud to call Adel home and are looking forward to many, many more years serving our community.

Thank you!

Always remember to Force String at least once a day!

Just remember to floss on this Pi(e) Day! 🥧🥧🥧


It's Dental Assistants Week (Thank you, Michaela, for all you do!), so what better time for Dr. Matta to return from maternity leave?! You've been asking when she would be back and Matta Family Dental is excited to have her return to seeing patients!

Call now to make your appointment.

It may be cold outside, but we're keeping warm here this evening!

February is Childrens Dental Health Month, so what better time for Matta Family Dental to stop by and see the kids at Kids Korner Two! While there, they learned what the dentist wears, what foods are good and bad for their teeth, and how to properly brush and floss. We capped it all off with a book at what to expect at your first visit! These kids are set!

We're a fan of this puzzle, Adel Veterinary Clinic! Not sure why...

Dr. Matta is currently away on maternity leave until Spring 2019. Matta Family Dental will continue to accept patients during this time and provide top-notch dental care until Dr. Matta returns.

Happy holidays and welcome to little Mariel!

rateabiz.com Usually going to the dentist is not fun, but Rachel and her staff make the event interesting and the time passes quickly. They use new technology.

Had an awesome (or should we say FLOSS-SOME) time at the Adel Sweet Corn Festival parade! Now it's time to get some floss with all that corn! We'll be handing out floss all along the line, so get yours and get munching on that sweet corn!

Almost time for the Adel Sweet Corn Festival Parade!

Getting ready for the Adel Sweet Corn Festival Parade! Looking forward to seeing all your smiling faces 9:30 tomorrow morning!

rateabiz.com Very pleased with the visit!

Must be heading to the wrong dentist! Kids love seeing Dr. Matta!


New 5 Star Review

rateabiz.com I had an appointment for cleaning today. Beth was fabulous! In the past, I have experienced some pain during cleaning which led me to dread getting it done again. Not this time. I left the office feeling great instead of having my mouth throbbing. Thank you Beth.
