Matthew Flugstad, DDS.

Dr. Matthew Flugstad

Our mission at Dayton Dental is to provide you and your family with the best possible dental experience available. Each member of our team has been hand picked to be the best at what they do and align with this goal to give you a warm and caring experience.

"After being in practice for several years now, I have learned that dentistry is not really about teeth, it is about people and relationships. The delivery of dental care is a very sensitive and personal event that is best accomplished in an environment of trust and understanding. If trust is not present, there is a serious strain on the doctor patient relationship. If understanding is not present, you may feel like you are being presented something that you do not “need.” My goal is to earn your trust and to help you understand what is best for your oral health.

It is my belief that as a patient you should have an active role in your oral healthcare decisions. My team and I are not here to “tell” you what you need. In addition, you should never feel like you are being talked into treatment. We are here to educate and help you understand the “why” of what is occurring and provide you with solutions to help keep your mouth healthy. My personal philosophy is that I will not recommend treatment for you that I would not recommend for my wife, daughter, mother or father."

I appreciate the long term approach that Dr Flugstad has for dental care. He keeps a close watch to the progress of my teeth, and doesn't do any unnecessary work. When I have a longer visit, I am able to watch TV while work is done on my teeth. Highly recommended!

My husband and I have been going to Dayton Dental for many years. Dr. Flugstad is truly a wonderful dentist! Very knowledgeable and kind. He doesn't do a procedure unless he feels it is absolutely necessary.
