Clearwater Family Dental Practice Launches New, Renovated Website

CLEARWATER, FL – Clearwater Dental Associates, a trusted family dental practice, has launched a new website that includes easy-to-use features, video testimonials and information about its comprehensive dental services.

The website,, was created by SmartBox Web Marketing, a leading dental marketing agency. Using the new site, patients can view a list of detailed services; hear from the doctors about the latest techniques in dentistry; and schedule their appointments using a click-to-call option or online form. The website launched earlier this month.

Clearwater Dental Associates, 226 Druid Road East, provides implant dentistry, general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. The office offers single and All on 4 dental implants, implant-supported and removable dentures, Invisalign, veneers, ceramic crowns, at-home Zoom! whitening treatments, oral appliances for snoring and sleep apnea, extractions for wisdom teeth, gum surgery, root canals and three forms of sedation dentistry (IV, oral conscious and nitrous oxide).

Dr. Matthew Burton, one of the owners of Clearwater Dental, said he pursued a partnership with SmartBox Web Marketing because he wanted to expand the practice’s reach on the Internet. With the new website, Dr. Burton said patients can now take a digital tour of the practice and see a comprehensive list of services and technology without stepping foot in the door.

“The new website gives the patients a tour of our office and let’s them know exactly how we can help them with their smile,” Dr. Burton said. “This is a tremendous tool that will increase our visibility. Even more importantly, it’s convenient for our patients and let’s them schedule visits virtually anytime or anywhere.”

SmartBox Web Marketing will also host the website for Clearwater Dental Associates.

Clearwater Dental Associates has four general dentists and visiting specialists, making it a comprehensive dental practice. Dr. Burton co-owns the practice alongside Dr. James Hayslett and Dr. Nolan Allen.

Dr. Burton became part-owner of Clearwater Dental Associates in 2003. He is more than an owner of the practice, though. He and his family were patients at Clearwater Dental Associates before he joined the team.

Dr. Burton is a Clearwater native who said he got interested in dentistry after spending five years wearing metal braces as a teenager. He received his undergraduate degree from Samford University in Birmingham, Ala., and then earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Alabama. He has received continuing education from The Pankey Institute and The Dawson Academy, and he has enrolled in a comprehensive implant course to expand his services. He is also active in the Academy of General Dentistry.

Dr. Burton gives back to his community by volunteering at two local dental clinics.

Dr. Hayslett has lived in Clearwater for 30 years. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Indiana University School of Dentistry. He has a long tradition of public service, having recently traveled to Africa twice to provide dental services to young students.

Dr. Allen graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry. He served as a captain in the U.S. Army Dental Corps for two years before co-founding Clearwater Dental Associates. Dr. Allen has been the president of the West Coast District Dental Association, Florida Dental Association and Upper Pinellas County Dental Association. He is a Delegate of the American Dental Association House of Delegates and serves on the National Elder Care Advisory Committee and ADA Council on Access, Prevention and Interprofessional Relations.

Dr. Maria C. Hernandez, a fourth dentist in the practice, graduated from the University of Miami and the University of Florida College of Dentistry. In 1992, she joined Clearwater Dental Associates and completed her General Dentistry Residency and Advanced Education at the University of Florida. Dr. Hernandez focuses on cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery and preventive care.

Clearwater Dental Associates opened in 1978 and was renovated in 2008. It now includes 17 state-of-the-art operatories. Some of the professional staff of dental hygienists and dental assistants have been with the practice for more than 20 years.
