Amber – Santa Cruz Patient of Dr. Robert Matiasevich
I love his very straight forward attitude.
I actually needed to have some implants and I started going through the Yellow Pages and Matiasevich came up and I said that name is familiar, I’m going to give him a call. Actually my dentist suggested that I go somewhere else and I didn’t feel like I wanted to go there because I had been there for some oral surgery and it was too much of a factory. So I came here and I was welcomed and made to feel very much at home and everything was beautifully explained to me.
I was scared to death because I had a lot of dental work done and it’s not fun, but I got put at ease and the process wasn’t the easiest but it was well explained and well implemented and I felt very confident in having Dr. Bob have his hands in my mouth. That’s a big deal. I felt that he knew what he was doing and he has a very soothing presence about him and his hands didn’t shake. If it was me with my hands in somebody’s mouth my hands would be shaking. He was great, just great and the staff is wonderful, that’s what’s terrific. I think I worked also with Christina. When I got scared he stopped and explained and gave me some space and came back and I’m very happy with everything, how it went, including the price.
I was in avoidance behavior because as I said I had a partial that was miserable and I didn’t want to wear the partial so I was kind of caught between a rock and a hard place.
It’s just wonderful to be able to chew, to be able to bring food to the back of my mouth to actually eat something like an apple and chop on it, and nuts, which I love.
It felt like he knew exactly what he was doing and I didn’t feel any bit of a doubt; he’s very straightforward, I love his very straight forward attitude. Also there’s something about being young, some people say that’s inexperience but I think it’s also having the latest and greatest techniques, having your finger on the newest technology and I really appreciate that.
As a second-generation dentist,Dr. Matiasevich was raised in Santa Cruz. Dr. Matiasevich completed his undergraduate work in economics at the University of California Irvine and then attended the University of Southern California for his dental degree.
