Dr. Evan Matthysse

Dr. Evan Matthysse grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and attended Penn State University, where he received his undergraduate degree in business. He then headed to NYU for Dental School before completing his year-long General Practice Residency at a practice in the Bronx. Dr. Matthysse proceeded to spend another two years completing a Postdoctoral Implantology Fellowship at NYU and practiced in New York City for over a decade. In 2020, he decided that it was time to make a change and moved out to Austin. He couldn’t be happier.

Dr. Matthysse just recently achieved the FAGD accreditation, one of the highest awards a dentist can receive. An FAGD accreditation requires 500 hours of education after the doctoral degree and residency. Less than 5% of dentists nationwide have accomplished this honor. With his commitment to dental excellence, you can rest assured Dr. Matthysse will provide only the highest quality care for you and your smile.

When Dr. Matthysse isn't living his dream of helping people achieve their ideal smiles, he enjoys reading and staying active. You’ll find him running, lifting weights, paddle boarding, shooting, and even competing in Spartan Races.

Dr. John Chelkowski

Dr. John Chelkowski was born in San Antonio, Texas. After attending the University of Texas in Austin, he graduated in 1979 from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. After graduation, he started his own general dentistry practice in Spring, Texas while working with several doctors under his direction.

Dr. Chelkowski then moved to South Austin after a period of fighting his allergies in Spring, Texas. Years of commuting pushed him to start full-time in Austin in 1993. Dr. Chelkowski thoroughly enjoys Austin and all its outdoor opportunities, especially hunting and fishing. He has called Austin home since 1989 and is the proud grandfather of JW.

What To Expect At Your First Visit

When you arrive at South Austin Dental Associates, you’ll be welcomed by our wonderful team and guided through any forms you may need to fill out. Sit back and relax in our cozy waiting room before heading back to our familiar feeling operatory. One of our skilled hygienists will gently clean your teeth and take care of any necessary x-rays before you meet the doctor. Dr. Evan Matthysse or Dr. John Chelkowski will then perform a comprehensive exam and discuss any concerns you may have about the state of your oral health. They’ll go over their findings and lay out treatment options so you can decide together how to make the smile of your dreams a reality.

Cutting-Edge Technology

We're committed to equipping our office with world-class tools so you can receive the high-quality care you deserve. That's why we're proud to now offer Cone Beam 3D Imaging (CBCT).

CBCT provides detailed diagnostic imaging and treatment planning, allowing our doctors to offer tooth-by-tooth precision. Less than 1% of offices include this tool, so you can ensure South Austin Dental Associates is providing the latest advancements in dentistry for a smooth procedure and superior experience.
