Lead Dentist

Dr Matt Ross graduated from The University of Otago with a BDS in 1996.

He has worked in New Zealand and England, with 20 years experience as a general dentist. Matt has a reputation for being gentle and caring. 

Matt enjoys providing a service where his patients go away with a positive experience and feeling that they have been treated with the utmost respect and professionalism. He also believes in a hygiene-focused practice where patients become highly motivated and well informed by the comprehensive care they receive. 

Matt has participated in advanced mentoring programs with Dr Derry Rogers for Restorative Dentistry and Photography,  Dr Kevan Wong for Implantology and Dr Brett Hawkins for Orthodontics.

In October 2015 Matt became one of the first in Australasia to gain the prestigious qualification of a Diploma in Implant Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, Scotland. This examination assessed Matts knowledge of all things related to Implantology, Oral Medicine and General Dentistry.

Since 2011 he has been certified to practice IV sedation and was accredited with a Level 6 Advanced Life Support status.  This enables him to offer comprehensive implant and restorative treatment options to nervous patients. 

Matt was one of the first in NZ to utilise Platelet Rich Fibrin therapy in promoting wound healing with less pain and inflammation.

Matt also has a special interest in Orthodontics. He is an accredited Invisalign provider and offers functional and growth orthodontics to his younger patients.

Outside of practice hours, Matt enjoys spending time with his family and mentoring new graduates. His interests include rugby, fishing, gardening and cooking. Matt is married with three children who enjoy the beauty and outdoor lifestyle that Northland offers.
