Meet Our Team!
Dr. Matthew Reith
Born and raised in Fort Smith, Dr. Reith
always knew he wanted to attend the University of
Arkansas. After his freshman year of college he knew
that he wanted to call Northwest Arkansas home.
During his college years he spent many hours outside
the classroom engaging in every aspect of dentistry
possible. He volunteered at the Free Health Center
in Fayetteville every Thursday for 3.5 years and
worked with many great surgeons and dentists. He was
a member of the University’s Pre-Dental Society. He
also worked for an Orthodontist for almost a year
before going to dental school. Upon completing his
Bachelors of Science Degree in Biology, he attended
the University Of Tennessee Health Science Center
College Of Dentistry in Memphis, Tennessee. For 4
years, he not only completed all his didactic
education, but he also spent many hours researching
the many different treatment capabilities that the
modern dentist has at his or her disposal.
While in Dental School, he married his
beautiful wife, Emily. Together they have two dogs,
Remi (the black lab) and Ivory (the white Chihuahua)
who keep them constantly busy. They enjoy spending
their time cheering on the Razorbacks, being
outside, and spending time with their families and
friends. Dr. Reith is also an avid duck hunter!
Dr. Robert Beyer III
A native of New Orleans, Dr Beyer is a
graduate of the University of New Orleans where he
received a Bachelors Degree in Biological Sciences.
He then moved on to receive his Doctorate in Dental
Surgery from Louisiana State School of Dentistry.
Afterwards, he completed a two-year General Practice
Residency at Charity Hospital in New Orleans. During
this residency he spent time perfecting many aspects
of dentistry, including oral surgery, prosthodontics
(crowns and bridges), and sedation. Upon graduation
he worked 6 days a week in three different offices
to better tone his clinical skills. During this time
he met his wife, Shannon. Dr. Beyer has spent a
large amount of his free time taking advanced
education classes to better serve his patients. In
doing so, he achieved a certificate of Fellowship in
the Academy of General Dentistry. This means he took
over 500 hours of continuing education! Combine that
with his over 30 years of experience, and there’s
not a lot Dr. Beyer hasn’t experienced as a dentist.

Beyer enjoys playing tennis, spending time with his

about seeing a dentist she will definitely make you

that I almost fell asleep. They are a great team and
obviously are happy with what they do and it shows!!"
