Meet Dr. Matthews (General Dentist)
I chose the field of dentistry as a career because of my love of using my hands in an artistic fashion. Dentistry allows me creativity on a daily basis, especially doing "same day" smiles and crowns (cerec). I also have a huge passion for technology, which is why my focus in dentistry is in the very highest technologies possible with lasers and Cerec. I am proud to be the first dentist in Western Canada to bring the latest Cerec technology into my practice, the omnicam, and now the second to introduce the latest scan technology, the Primescan. I have been using both hard and soft tissue lasers for about 12 years, which allows me to perform dentistry in a high tech and minimally invasive way. Over the 30 plus years I have been in practice I can honestly say that the technology changes have been amazing and it fuels my passion to come to work every day. I am also fortunate to be surrounded by staff who share my love of technology, and a great group of patients who embrace it.
