Meet Dr. Healey & His Team
Meet Dr. Matthew Healey
Dr. Matthew Healey grew up on the South Shore, where he developed an early interest in dentistry. After he graduated from Duxbury High School, he attained his Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry at Stonehill College near Boston. He then went on to earn his Doctorate of Medical Dentistry degree from Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine. Following graduation, Dr. Healey completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency at Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This post-graduate work expanded Dr. Healey’s knowledge and skills in various dental specialties.
As part of his efforts to continue providing excellent and comfortable dental care, Dr. Healey has added oral conscious sedation to his practice. This option is especially beneficial for patients who feel anxious or fearful about dental treatment. Dr. Healey obtained his sedation training at the Montefiore Medical Center, where he completed a hospital-based clinical program that is part of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Healey has also studied with the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS). All this continuing education has helped Dr. Healey transform the experience of going to the dentist. Visits at his office are safe and relaxing, and all patients are treated with respect while they get the smile they deserve.
Dr. Healey has achieved Fellowship status in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), followed by Mastership in the Academy (MAGD). His other professional memberships include the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Massachusetts Dental Society.
In his free time, Dr. Healey coaches his boys’ basketball, baseball, and track and field teams. He looks forward to getting to know you and your family, too!
