Matthew Gillham, DDS

Dr. Matthew Gillham was born and raised in Nebraska. He graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, received an advanced education in general dentistry certificate from the University of Connecticut Health Center, and was awarded Fellowship by the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Matthew continued his education with specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Tufts University.

After practicing general dentistry for eight years and seeing how many adult patients attributed their dental anxiety to childhood experiences, Dr. Matthew was drawn to pediatric dentistry with a wish to prevent future dentally anxious adults. He still enjoys general dentistry but concluded that specialization would create the best opportunity for him to make the most meaningful and beneficial impact. Dr. Matthew is passionate about creating dental experiences that are positive, comfortable, educational and FUN! He believes that a parent/child team that is educated and working together is the best formula to combat early childhood tooth decay. Combining general dentistry skills with pediatric dentistry training, Dr. Matthew strives to provide exceptional care for children.
