Matt grew up on a dairy farm in Gaspereau, Nova Scotia. As a self-professed night owl, he knew the early mornings of dairy farming were not in his future. From an early age, Matt had an interest in dentistry, which was reinforced by several summers of job shadowing with the Friars before dental school.

Matt completed his Bachelor of Science degree at Dalhousie University in 2014 and entered directly into Dalhousie University Faculty of Dentistry graduating in 2018. After spending 8 years in Halifax Matt wanted nothing more than to return to the valley to begin practicing. Matt enjoys all aspects of dentistry and looks forward to developing personal relationships with all of his patients.
