Meet the Doctor
Matthew D. Carter, DDS | Dentist
Dr. Matthew Carter graduated from Creighton University Dental School in 2001 and has been practicing dentistry ever since. He married the love of his life a year later and decided together that they would raise their family in Omaha, Nebraska. After several years of honing the skills he acquired in Dental School Dr. Carter found a second passion in helping his patients achieve the highest level of health they desire. It was then when Dr. Carter and Dr. Torres decided to reorganize their practice to address the fundamental mistrust between doctors and patients by creating an environment where trust comes first.
They wanted an office that would address improving their patient’s health needs and lives in order to bring about a positive advancement for their patients and in themselves. In this environment, patients learn about how patients’ patterns of behavior have put them where they are today, and what needs to be done to improve themselves. Dr. Carter believes that when health is fully achieved, it means less dental work (which is everyones secret desire!). The best reward Dr. Carter feels it is when after a patient has completed treatment they’ve put themselves in a position to maintain their teeth as long as they need them.
Patients goals are unique to each patient, so there’s no “one size fits all” standard that can be applied to everyone across the board. After speaking with patients Dr. Carter uses the patient’s attitudes, goals along with what he can offer as a dentist to come up with a treatment plan to discuss with the patient. Through constant education and refinement of his clinical skills, Dr. Carter brings a wealth of dental experience and knowledge to the table. The most fun part of his job is helping patients understand where they are and finding out where they want to go.
As a happy husband and father, Dr. Carter enjoys spending most of his free time with his family. Father of three (Nico, Elynn and Theodore). Dr Carter very much enjoys helping his kids with their activities such as; Tae Kwon Do, golf or helping tutoring their studies. If time allows, Dr. Carter’s other passions are reading, golfing, hunting/fishing, and sometimes a little gaming.
