Matt and I sat next to each other in the preclinical lab in dental school, and I was lucky to have known such a kind, sweet person. I didn't have a lot of contact with him after we graduated, but I really enjoyed being his classmate. I wish all the best to his family. I have two teenagers, and I am sure that this must be terribly hard for the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Matt was such a beautiful human being. He was always so kind to everyone and will be missed by many. My prayers continue for all of you. Rest assured that Matt is still your protector and is watching down on all of you. He will live forever in all our memories.

I worked with Matt on several occasions at Camp Dodge and the National Gard in Boone doing Deployment Ready Dental Exams for the Department of Defense
several years ago. It was a pleasure working with and knowing Matt. He was a good man and I'm sure a good dentist.

I was referred to Matt by my daughter Merissa when he had his dental practice on Cherry Street. So have been going to Matt for many years for my dental work .
He was one of the nicest young men that I had ever met. Very caring for all. Was always sincere and passionate about life itself. I am so deeply sadden to hear about Matt's passing. I extend my deepest heartfelt sympathy and prayers to his wife and children and extended family. May Matt Rest in Peace now. He fought like a great warrior. Amen.

We are so sorry to hear of Dr. Matt's passing. He became our dentist in the Johnston days and we loved him so much that we followed him to Ankeny. Always so kind and caring... and brave in his fight against cancer. Our sincere sympathy to his family and the staff at Ankeny Dental Professionals. He will be missed.

I always felt better just knowing that Matt was with us at the beginning in Iraq. Rest up above with the Saints and praise to almighty God.
