Get To Know Your Dental Team
Meet Dr. Matthew Stratman
Dr. Stratman graduated cum laude from the University of Arizona with a degree in molecular and cellular biology. He then went on to complete his dental degree at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, California. Dr. Stratman regularly attends continuing education courses in order to provide the most advanced dental care he possibly can. He is certified in both the surgical placement and the restoration of dental implants, and he has also performed many cosmetic smile enhancements.
Dr. Stratman understands that most people don’t look forward to dental visits, so he strives to make his office a low-pressure, judgment-free place where patients of all ages can feel comfortable learning about their dental health. He’s also equipped his treatment rooms with blankets, pillows, and cable TV to make his office feel a little more like home.
In his free time, Dr. Stratman likes to golf and cook. He and his wife Anne are passionate about fostering kittens and cats through the Foundation for Animals in Risk, and they have four furry family members of their own: two dogs, Ruby and Jake, and two cats, Miles and Izzy.
