I went in for my appointment today and Hannah Hamlan took amazing care of me. She was very polite and attentive. She talked me threw the entire procedure, which I appreciated greatly. Im not a big fan of dental appointments, because they are usually painful//uncomfortable. But today Hannah changed that for me. The way Hannah talked me threw the procedure, made me aware of any pressure that was to come, therefore I was prepared. She sang the words to every song that was playing, witch made me feel very comfortable. Her singing also made my experience fun. She took her time and answered every question I had for her. And she managed to keep a smile on her face the entire time. She was phenomenal. I would love to see her every time, but I do not live close to the temple location. Thank you Hannah! <3

Kiley A Smith DDS
On the June 18, 2014, I had my remaining upper teeth removed and a full upper plate to replace them. WOW! Last week, on the 22nd of July I actually ate corn on the cob, and no.... I did not scrape it off the cob first. I hope this dentist and his staff remain in Temple for a long time because I don't ever want to have to go to another dentist. The entire staff are friendly and extremely helpful. I've had experiences where doctors or dentists seem put out if you ask questions but not in Dr. Smith's office. Although there are two dentists in the town where I live I drive 35 miles to have Dr. Smith work on my teeth. The skill, courtesy and downright humanity shown by these professionals is uplifting and made visiting the dentist office a pleasant experience. God bless them!

D Matthew Mayer
It was about more than 2 years ago since I met Dr. Mayer in a dental voluntery event called "Texas Mission of Mercy". I shadowed his work and I had a chance to be his assistant. I have seen a lot of patients were treated by his professional hands! Dr.Mathew is the right orthodontist to trust!!.. He participated in a lot of dental voluntary missions and he has so many experiences related to dentistry. He is really expert not at orthodontics only but he performed a lot of general dental procedures that were tough to work with. All of his patients really like him and his personality is great! so friendly dentist! He is doing excellent performance on any dental procedure!

Getting dental work done can be scary sometimes, especially if you have aren't sure what the issue is. I like that the doctors at Forest Trail Dental really try to work you in instead of scheduling you 2 weeks out.

I am handicapped and every single staff member in the office did everything they could to accommodate me. The doctor, techs, even the receptionist. This practice is full of wonderful professionals!

The thing I like the most about Forest Trail is that if you have an issue, the staff will do everything they can to find a way to have you come in ASAP. No waiting 2 weeks before you are seen!

Love the new office, it's extremely welcoming. Forest Trail Dental Care has a great staff that does great dental work. I've had work done by both doctors and they are both fantastic.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
