Matthew Wurzel, DDS
General Dentist - Napoleon, OH
Dr. Wurzel knew he wanted to be a dentist since he was young. His childhood dentist helped shape his positive outlook on dentistry and sparked his interest in the profession. He knew he wanted to help people and found dentistry to be a great avenue to fulfill that desire.
Dr. Wurzel is passionate about helping people realize the impact of oral health on their overall health, a connection that is often overlooked in healthcare. One of the patients who impacted him the most was a 23-year-old woman who came to him in pain. The patient had Turners Syndrome, a condition that causes serious medical and development problems. Her condition resulted in abnormal gingival (gum tissue) overgrowth, which causes tender gums, inflammation, pain, bad breath, and plaque buildup on teeth. He was able to provide treatment for his patient, restore her smile, and help minimize future medical issues – all of which he finds tremendously rewarding!
Dr. Wurzel is a graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine where he was a member of PSI Omega Dental Fraternity. He has spent time volunteering at underserved schools to do sealants for kids, doing Give Kids a Smile, and traveling to nursing homes to help the elderly. In his downtime, he enjoys family vacations to Marco Island, hiking, traveling, and playing video games. He loves coffee, and considers himself a bit of a barista, and likes to try new restaurants.
