General Dentist, Co-owner
Matthew grew up in Richmond and graduated with his undergraduate Biochemistry and Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from UBC in 2013. He practiced in Cranbrook, BC in the Kootenays before making his way back to the big city to marry his lovely wife Sherry. He hopes to replicate the small town close-knit relationships he has grown to admire. Matthew enjoys all aspects of dentistry and values taking the time to learn the stories behind each person he treats. Matthew is a current member of the British Columbia Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. A lifelong student, Matthew averages over 200 hours of continuing education every year, and in 2017, completed an intensive 300-hour implant curriculum with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Matthew has studied at the Spear Education Institute and is currently studying at the world-renown Kois Centre in Seattle. In the past, he has enjoyed organizing low-cost dental clinics for the less-privileged population of the Vancouver Downtown East Side and has provided free dental treatment at the Salvation Army dental clinic (first one in Canada!) in Cranbrook, BC. He has also travelled far to volunteer at orphanages in Brazil and has provided dental education (en Español) to rural communities in Honduras. In his downtime, Matthew enjoys spending time with his family. You may find him running/biking along the False Creek seawall on sunny days or struggling up the Grouse Grind on weekends. He looks forward to meeting and getting to know you!
