Meet the Dentists
Dr. Matthew Jurcak
Dr. Matthew Jurcak, a native of Olmsted Falls, OH, completed his undergraduate studies and earned his doctorate degree from Case Western Reserve University in 2015. Upon graduation from dental school, he proudly served as a U.S. Navy Active Duty Dentist for five years. Throughout his naval career, Dr. Jurcak worked in 10 different dental clinics, often hand-in-hand with the Navy’s top specialists, gaining invaluable clinical experience.
Dr. Jurcak enjoys creating healthy smiles through careful examination, customized treatment, and effective home maintenance for each patient. When it comes to oral health, he prioritizes disease prevention and patient education. He is a member of the American Dental Association, teaches hundreds of children about oral health each year during Children’s Dental Health Month, and has embarked on two international dental mission trips to support global public health initiatives.
When not in the office, Dr. Jurcak hosts family game nights, seeks out the best food in Northeast Ohio, and plans his next backpacking trip or beach vacation.

Angie, Office Manager
Angie entered the field as a dental assistant 5 years ago. As her love of dentistry grew, she expanded her knowledge and became involved with the administrative side of the office. She loves helping patients live better, healthier, happier lives just as much as helping the office and team grow. When not in the office Angie is typically outdoors, working out, or making memories with her family and friends closest to her.
Chanttel is a recent graduate of VIP Dental Assisting School. What she loves about dentistry is the variety of ways to perfect a smile. In her spare time, Chanttel loves trying awesome foods, shopping, hanging out with her friends, and watching movies.
