Matt was born and raised in Auburn, Maine, and is a graduate of Auburn High School (go Red Eddies!). Thanks to a family of dental professionals, Matt was exposed to dentistry from a young age, and he began pursuing it for his own career in 2009. Matt is a CDA (Certified Dental Assistant) and an EFDA (Expanded Function Dental Assistant), he is also radiology certified and handles the massive task of clinical supplies inventory. Due to a natural creative talent and interest in building things, he was an obvious choice to manage our in house lab – where we design and fabricate crowns, abutments and bite splints using the latest digital milling technology. Given his natural talent with computers and technology, Matt is also our resident Mr. Fix-it whenever a computer, photocopier, or Keurig machine goes on the fritz.
Off the clock, a desire to work with his hands and make something from nothing is carried over into his personal life. After completing an apprenticeship, he now operates his own leather working business, specializing in wallets and gun holsters (which is more therapeutic than it is ‘work’). He also helps his father, who has a cabinetry business, during their busy season. “Relaxation” is spent watching his young son chase their two dogs, Frank and Luca, around for hugs.
