Dr. Matthew Hickin

Wellesley Massachusetts Dr. Matthew Hicken

Dentistry is an exciting yet challenging field, but I truly enjoy every day of practice. Periodontics in particular is a fascinating field that is constantly changing and updating. New research and technology is changing the way periodontists treat patients, with increasing comfort and efficacy. And while I am passionate about saving teeth, dental implants have allowed for treatment not possible in the past and is an integral part of my practice.
