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.
