Dr. Matthew Dunn
When I was a child, I had a severe underbite that was corrected with extensive orthodontic treatment. As my teeth moved into their proper position and my bite improved, I became fascinated with how the process worked.
This convinced me that I wanted to become an orthodontist when I grew up. I find it exceptionally gratifying to be in a position to help people of all ages achieve and maintain beautiful, functional smiles. To accomplish this, I have made sure that I possess the training and education people can feel confident in.
This includes a postdoctoral degree in orthodontics from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. I am also an active member in several orthodontic and dental societies, which allows me to meet with my peers and discuss the latest advances in my field.

Dr. Matthew Dunn grew up in a small town outside of Saginaw, Michigan. He was valedictorian of his high school class, captain of the football team, and was accepted to dental school right out of high school.
Dr. Dunn attended the University of Michigan for his BS (Biology), DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) and MS (Orthodontics). Matt received multiple awards including the Francis B. Vedder award in fixed prosthodontics and the Comprehensive Care Award for excellence in all areas of dentistry. He was also inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society.
Dr. Dunn’s research in bone biology has been recognized numerous times by the American Association of Orthodontists. Most recently, he was awarded the Thomas Graber Award of Special Merit for one of the most outstanding projects of the year. He was invited to present this project at national meetings in 2006 and 2007.
