Mountain View Family Dental, your caring Mesa dentist office
Why do patients drive from the other side of the valley to see Dr. Guffey and his staff? One patient, Maggie, says that after moving away, she still comes back to Mountain View Family Dental, even though it’s a 60-mile drive round trip. It’s a matter of trust. “He cares about your dental needs, of course, but then he helps you get the work done without pressure or guilt,” she says. “I have been to other dentists who make you feel like your life depends on whether or not you get your fillings done tomorrow or not (more like their vacation depends on it).” Other patients say that they also sense that caring in Dr. Guffey and the entire staff. They feel like family.
It’s not an accident. Dr. Guffey and his staff try very hard to run a warm, welcoming office. He tries to get to know every member of your family. And when it comes time to explain your dental needs, he and the dentists who work with him take the time, answer all your questions, and tell you honestly what’s important, what’s not, what can wait, and what is urgent, and how much it will cost. And they will do what they can to make the care affordable—work out a payment plan, or whatever it takes.
“It feels like family.” That’s what patients say when they visit our dentist office.

Dr. Rebecca Temp
Dr. Temp is a dental partner at Mountain View Family Dental, and is a big reason why we are able to treat everyone in your family with such skill and attention. She received her dental training at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health at AT Still University here in Mesa, and she is a member of the ADA and the American Academy of Women Dentists.
She is a general dentist who, like Dr. Guffey, also strongly believes in continuing her dental education.

Dr. Heath Snell
Dr. Snell is Mountain View Family Dental’s Arizona licensed general dentist who provides IV sedation. Several times a month he brings to our office his sedation skills and his training from the University of Colorado School of Dentistry and the Audie L. Murphy Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, where he received his certification for IV sedation.
Dr. Snell has the needed training to perform more complex surgical dental procedures, such as the placement of dental implants and the extraction of impacted wisdom teeth.
His abilities help provide our patients with the comfort that can come from sedation dentistry.
We are your true general dentistry office. Our practice focuses on making family dental care affordable, including services such as wisdom teeth, gum disease treatment, fillings, crowns and bridges, and many more. We love seeing every member of the family, including children. As soon as you begin having questions or concerns about your son or daughter and their teeth, give us a call.
We even offer a complimentary consultation, in which we can start getting to know your family. It allows us to start determining what dental needs we can provide to brighten the smile of everybody in your home.
