I chose dentistry because it is the perfect blend of the things I am passionate about: helping others and finding the balance between art and science. Whether it is creating a beautiful smile, restoring function, relieving pain, or preventing future problems, I enjoy meeting the oral health goals and needs of my patients. — Dr. Matt Wiley
