Dr. C. Matthew Keller
I love making someone feel better about themselves, restoring their self-esteem and self-confidence. Smiling is wonderfully infectious and makes everyone happy: every day, I help people smile!
As a dentist, I’m able to move a person out of pain, restore their ability to chew properly and comfortably and improve their smile. All of these make a significant, sometimes even life-changing, difference in an individual’s life.
I strive to establish trusting, honest relationships with each person in my care. I want them to know I’ll always be direct in my communication, and they appreciate that. At the same time, I’m compassionate and love the friendships that have developed in the ten years I’ve been practicing. I’ve met some incredible people, and become a part of their life, as they’ve become part of mine.
Education and Continuing Education
Bachelor of Science in Biology, University of Pittsburgh
Doctorate of Dental Medicine, University of Pittsburgh

I’m a committed life-long learner, which is especially important in the oral healthcare field. Every day new technologies are developed, along with treatments and dental materials. Understanding these changes, and how I can use them to provide even better care to my patients, is essential. By taking many continuing education courses, I stay current, ensuring the best treatments and outcomes for my patients.
My wife Katie and I grew up in Berks County and are now raising our four children here. When I’m not caring for my patients, I’m usually with my family, enjoying everything from tea parties to T-ball. I also enjoy sports, from playing with my church softball team to watching them live or on TV.

Being a Dental Hygienist is a very rewarding profession. I have been a hygienist for nine years now, and I love it more today than I did when I started! I enjoy meeting new people and educating them on the importance of dental health and techniques for maintaining good health. I also enjoy working with all age levels, and my goal is to make your appointment enjoyable and comfortable!
