I feel like I’m on vacation and doing dentistry as a hobby. It’s what every dentist dreams about. I should have done this years ago.
Dr. Frank Landry

I am enjoying dentistry again. Well compensated for the number of days I choose to work and without the hassle of managing an office and staff – what is there not to like? Thank you Matika Irons and Associates!
Dr. Ana Brightleaf

While preparing to open my new office, working with Matika Irons & Associates was a tremendous educational experience – working in different offices, learning new techniques and materials. No other position could have offered this wealth of experience on such a short time.
Dr. Charles Payet
