Meet Dr. Matt

Dr. Matthew Hillman


Dr. Matt graduated from the UMKC School of Dentistry and went directly into his postgraduate residency program in Pediatric Dentistry at Northwestern University and Children’s Memorial Hospital. Upon completion of his rigorous training Dr. Matt became a board certified pediatric dentist with the ABPD (American Board of Pediatric Dentists). In his free time, Dr. Matt loves to travel and spend time with his growing family.

“I love pediatric dentistry. Not everybody gets to do exactly what he or she wants for a career. I’m so lucky to have this unique opportunity to share my knowledge and skills with the community.  Through education I hope that we can reduce the occurrence of dental decay in kids and do so in a super fun environment that doesn’t feel clinical.  Children are amazing and working with such diverse personalities requires a lot of flexibility and a lot of energy. I truly feel that working with children is what I was meant to do and look forward to the many years to come.”
