Our Dental Staff in Gold Canyon, AZ

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."   

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!

My name is Matt Scheerhorn and I am a native of Grand Rapids, MI. I attended Denison University where I was a collegiate swimmer for 4 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!



I have over 20 years of experience in the dental industry and I am a full time R.D.H. You may even find me from time to time helping the dentists, assisting in dental procedures.  In the month of December I enjoy volunteering  for Arizona Mission of Mercy. We provide dental care for those who cannot afford to go to a regular dentist. I have participated for 4 years. I have an 8 yr old dog Monroe who demands a daily walk and hogs most of the bed.  I work hard so my dog can have a better life.

She loves her career as a dental hygienist, and it shows in how well she helps patients improve their oral health which in turn improves their whole body health.
