Hello, my name is Dr. Ben Matthews.
My family and I are pleased to call Blacksburg home. We have quickly immersed into this community filled with friendly neighbors - who have supplied us with more chocolate chip cookies than we can eat. We are in love with the numerous trails for biking & walking, the farmers market - bursting with fresh produce, and people who share our passion for learning. We feel like we have found a true gem in this lovely New River Valley.
I grew up in the Carolinas prior to attending Brigham Young University - Hawaii. There, I met my wonderful wife, Melanie. We have been blessed with one son, Rivers, who is already nine years old. Rivers has quickly adapted to Virginia's wildlife and takes every opportunity to feed the giant turtles and climb the surround trees.
While attending the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, I pursued additional training beyond the standard curriculum. These involved various branches of dentistry such as: pediatrics, periodontics, prosthodontics, and oral medicine.
After graduation, I had the opportunity to work in a small community in Utah. During that time, I continued my pursuit of clinical expertise through a variety of continuing education courses including: Endodontics, Implant Dentistry, Invisalign, Full Mouth Reconstruction, and Airway Management. This further education gives me the capacity to treat complex dental cases, utilizing the best technology and specialty care available.
I promise to take the time to genuinely understand the concerns and needs of each patient. By treating you with integrity and skill, we will provide the highest standard of care, in a calm and gentle environment.
I look forward to meeting you.
- Dr. Ben Matthews
