One of only few board certified veterinary dentists in the country, Dr. Matson founded Eastside Veterinary Dentistry in 2007 with the goal of providing specialty veterinary dental care for dogs and cats in the Puget Sound area. After practicing small animal veterinary medicine for many years, his passion for dentistry inspired him to seek accreditation as a board certified veterinary dentist.
This process involves years of extra training, mentorships, and rigorous examination to ensure patients receiving care from boarded veterinarians receive only the very best from highly skilled practitioners. He achieved this status in 2003.
With an impressive resume that includes graduating from WSU with honors in 1985, owning a small animal general practice for more than 20 years, and providing valuable consultation services to veterinarians around the country, Dr. Matson is a compassionate veterinarian and excellent teacher, making the client and patient experience under his care comfortable, practical, and educational. Outside of work, Dr. Matson enjoys bicycling, driving his Mustang, and relaxing over a latte with his wife. He is father to three adult sons, an exuberant Alaskan Malamute, and two adorable cats.
