Meet Dr. LaNeve

Dr. Matthew D. LaNeve

I am blessed to be able to do what I love everyday. Being able to restore someone’s smile and improve their quality of life is a true joy. Taking the time to really get to know our patients and giving them the time to help us understand their goals is truly what I think sets us apart from other offices.

Staying on the cutting edge of dentistry is a major component of my practice, as it means I can give my patients the best care possible. To that end, I prioritize continuing education. I’ve lectured and served as guest speaker for local groups, the Seattle Study Club, and Case Western University Dental School, covering topics such as cosmetic procedures and advanced dental techniques. I’m also certified to teach other dentists on the use of Air Abrasion Technology, an innovation that takes the place of the drill in removing cavities, which in turn allows us to avoid needles—leaving many happy patients!

Community & Family

Being connected to my community is a goal both professional and personal. I’m a member of the local Rotary, having served on the board and as president in 1998. I’ve also volunteered my time by serving as a board member for local Emergency Medical Service. In 1996, I started a Cosmetic Dental Center for battered women. I’m proud to have been featured on Fox 53, Channel 11 News, and in local newspapers. I live in the Pine-Richland area with my wife, Dayna, and our five children: Zachary, 26; Allie, 25; Cody, 22; Troy, 19; Christian, 15.


I’m a 1991 graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Dentistry. I got my undergraduate degree from Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania.
