Matthew Elston, DMD


Dr. Elston received his DMD at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Medford, MA. He completed his general practice residency at the University of Washington and han externship at a community health center in Plainfield, Vermont. He developed impressive endodontic experience in molar endo, rotary instrumentation, warm gutta-percha obturation and microscope use. 

Dr. Elston says he has always had a desire to help others. His family dentist took him under his wing and introduced him to dentistry, which felt like a great fit. He was drawn to working with people, helping them, and working with his hands. He shares that he is driven to be the best version of himself that he can be. That drive inspires him to learn, grow, and get the most out of life.

Dr. Elston would like to see a trend toward overall improved community well-being. Everything in healthcare is connected – from the food we eat to the exercise we do to how we talk to ourselves and our family. He hopes for a general improvement in overall health and wellness for all. “Everybody needs a dentist. And many out there don’t have access to quality dental care. I feel connected to those who need help, and I want to help those in need.”

“My goal as a dentist is to provide high-quality treatment. I want people to leave our clinic feeling good about how they were treated as people and feel good about the dental care they received. Commit to your own wellbeing and it will spread to those around you. Don’t be afraid to put yourself first. Eat right and take care of yourself.”

While not helping people with their dental needs, Dfr. Elston enjoys surfing and playing the drums.
