‘‘I had the opportunity to work with Matt 2 years ago on my first case. I've worked with lots of lab technicians, but Matt's knowledge and attention to detail are unmatched. He delivered beyond my expectations and certainly my patients' as well; I'd recommend him to anyone who wants the best. He will deliver.’’

‘‘This is at least the 10th crown and bridge lab I've worked with in my career. This delivery of 6 anterior units was the smoothest delivery I've ever made and, by far, the most beautiful porcelain work. Pristine margins, even interproximal, and balanced incisal contacts. Even having worked with other AACD-accredited technicians, I've never experienced anything like this. Well worth the extra 3-4 week wait. CMR gave me back a perfect showcase result!’’
