Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon - SEATTLE, WA
Dr. Matthew Epstein
Dr. Matthew Epstein was raised in Blaine Washington, where he developed an enthusiasm for the outdoors and a passion for the Pacific Northwest. His childhood was spent hiking, camping and exploring the forest with his two brothers. He is an avid soccer player and a devoted Sounders fan. First finding his love for the game at age two, he often kicks the ball around with his daughter. He spends his free time together with family, his wife Rachel and daughters Eva and Lily also hiking, biking and exploring. They love to create new adventures with friends, traveling and experiencing new cultures.
Dr. Epstein attended Bellevue High School and went on to complete his B.S. in Biology and D.D.S. at the University of Washington. His love of adventure took him on a journey to the east coast where he spent his Oral and Maxillofacial residency at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center outside of New York City.
With his experience at St. Joseph’s, the expertise gained in oral and facial plastic surgery, Dr. Epstein is uniquely qualified in the management of soft tissue and hard tissue treatment. He loves integrating new technologies, to create a one of a kind patient experience. Dr. Epstein has a commitment to community health here in his home state and abroad. He volunteered weekly at the 45th Street Clinic where he became clinic coordinator and traveled to Guatemala on multiple occasions with The Free to Smile Foundation. There he treated cleft lip and palate conditions.
Entering into the 10th year of his career, Dr. Epstein continues to learn contemporary and ingenuitive surgical solutions to integrate into his growing practice.
