Board Certified Oral + Facial Surgeon
Dr. Matthew Epstein loves people, relationships, and conversations. From the design of his office to the office team, it is apparent that this is vitally important to him. He strongly believes that the patient-doctor relationship is a two-way street. Dr. Epstein spends a significant amount of time educating and discussing treatment options with his patients. You won’t find educational videos anywhere in his office that tend to dilute the patient-doctor relationship. He is passionate about providing unique and excellent surgical options to his patients. He is uniquely able to manage both the hard and soft tissue of the face and mouth due to his training and experience in oral and facial plastic surgery. His surgical interests in oral and plastic surgery are exemplified in the techniques and technology he integrates into patient care.
Dr. Matthew Epstein was raised in Blaine, Washington, where he developed a lifelong enthusiasm for the outdoors and affinity for the Pacific Northwest. His childhood was spent hiking, camping and engaging in evergreen forests with his two brothers. Dr. Epstein is also an avid soccer fan, playing the sport from the time he was two years old, and now participates as a loyal Sounders fan. Together with his family, Dr. Epstein moved to Seattle to attend Bellevue High School, where he subsequently completed a B.S. in Biology followed by a DDS at the University of Washington.
Dr. Epstein also enjoys exploring new countries and cultures, and traveled from an early age, first with his family and now with his wife. He studied abroad in Prague during college and he has recently traveled twice to Guatemala with The Free to Smile Foundation where he collaborated on cleft lip and palate repairs. His commitment to service and community health brought him closer to home as well. He volunteered weekly throughout his training at the 45th Street Clinic, ultimately becoming the clinic coordinator. His love of new experiences and exploration eventually took him to the East Coast for a unique and wide-ranging Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center outside of New York City. There, he developed his interests in facial cosmetic surgery and post-reconstruction rejuvenation.
