The brief descriptions below are designed to familiarize you with our staff's training, professional credentials and work experience.

Jonathan Lovell, DMD

Dentist in Gold Canyon, AZ

Superstition Mountain Dental

I was born and raised in Utah. I was recruited and played college soccer at Brigham Young University (BYU) where I received my education in Biology. Looking for a high-quality dental education, I attended and graduated with distinction from University of Kentucky with my Doctorate of Medical Dentistry (DMD) in 2002.

I am an avid believer in the importance of continuing education, as I have furthered my training through extensive continuing education courses in cosmetic and general dentistry. I am a member of the American Dental Association (ADA) and Arizona Dental Association (AZDA), as well as a member of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) which requires a much more rigorous continuing education than the standard state requirements. With a love of all phases of dentistry, I especially enjoy seeing the cosmetic make-overs and the change it has on peoples' lives. "It is so fun and fulfilling to see your patient's smile and see their face light up when they look in the mirror for the first time and they see their results."  One of my recent focuses has been working with the Cerec system (same-day crowns). Although I have been doing these same-day crowns for several years, I have been fascinated with the recent technological enhancements. The quality has now become as good, if not better than, lab fabricated crowns. "The patients love not have the gagging impressions, no temporaries, and not having to get numbed up again...this all in about 1 hour!"

I have been married for over 16 years to my beautiful wife Heidi from Preston, Idaho (yes the town from the movie Napoleon Dynamite). Together we are raising our 5 beautiful daughters in Gilbert, AZ.  As a family, I love spending as much time together as possible.

I also spend much of my time both in and out of the dental office in service to others. One of the organizations that I help with is "Save the Family." This is a service providing free dental work to single mothers and children trying to get their lives back together. " I have always felt if you are going to be successful in your life, you need to give back." In addition to teaching and serving in my local church, I volunteer and coach one of the top girl's club soccer teams in the state. You can often find me and my family out doing service to those in need of the community.

I look forward to meeting you and would be honored to give you and your family the quality care you deserve!

Matthew Scheerhorn, DDS

Dentist in Gold Canyon, AZ

Superstition Mountain Dental

My name is Matt Scheerhorn and I am a native of Grand Rapids, MI. I attended Denison University where I was a collegiate swimmer fo4 years. I continued my dental education at Ohio State University and completed a general practice residency program at Salt Lake City Hospital.

I have been practicing dentistry in the Phoenix area since 1999. I truly enjoy the artistry of dentistry and helping my patients. I believe in creating a very fun and friendly environment in our dental office and strive to treat everyone as if they are my family.

Outside of the office, I am happily married to my wife, Sharee. We have three wonderful children; Zach, Madelyn, and Claire. I enjoy spending time with my family as much as I can. I also enjoy golfing and swimming in my spare time. I look forward to meeting you in our dental office!





Dental Assistants

My name is Trisha and I have been a dental assistant with Superstition Mountain Dental for 15 years. I am a native to Arizona and enjoy spending time outdoors during our cooler weather.

Catherine “Cat”
As assistant to Doctor Lovell, Cat could not imagine herself in a better position.  She assists him with 13 years of experience and is always eager to learn and do more.  She is the mother of 2 boys and has been married for 16 years.  If you asked her about where she lived, she’d probably tell you that no matter where you live, the place she lives is “Superior”.  She and her family enjoy hunting, camping and fishing and being in Superior this gives her and her family access to all these fun activities within minutes.  She enjoys working with the patients and bringing a smile to their faces. She gives a quality of care only someone who loves her job as much as she does can do.  Superior is known for its many minerals and vast underground wealth, but Superstition Mountain dental should be known for its gem, “Cat”.



Administrative Staff

With 25 years experience in the dental field, Heather brings a vast knowledge and expertise rarely found in the dental field.   As a mother of 2 daughters she understands how to listen and focus on the needs of others.  She enjoys vacationing with her family and spending time with her daughters whom are very active in soccer and her husband of 21 years.   She enjoys getting to know the patients and is a great asset to them by giving them exceptional care.


With over 13 years experience in the dental field, I dedicated myself in providing quality service to my patients.  I was born and raised on Southern California, but moved to AZ 10 yrs ago.  On my time off I love to spend it with my daughter.  I enjoy everything that has to do with food.
