OZARK, MO-One of Excel Dental’s dentists recently received recognition for his quality care and service to patients. The Missouri Dental Association’s New Dentist Committee inducted Dr. Nick Matthews as an at-large committee member.
According to the American Dental Association, new dentists consist of those who have been out of dental school for less than 10 years. Dr. Matthews is one of only 17 dentists from each of the association’s regional districts. Along with the rest of the committee, Dr. Matthews will serve as the representative voice of new dentists. Primary responsibilities include making recommendations on policies and programs to promote the success of new dentists.
Another major proponent of the New Dentist Committee involves the development of leadership in the field of dentistry. Dr. Matthews will play a major role in the organization of activities for dental students at institutions all over America, particularly the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, his alma mater.
“It’s an honor to be the voice of our region as part of the New Dentist Committee,” Dr. Matthews told the practice’s advertising agency recently. “I look forward to actively participating in events and conferences throughout the year so that new dentists in this area are best represented. The continued growth of Excel Dental is the type of success I hope for all new dentists, and as a committee member, I now have the opportunity to develop others in a way that they too can excel.”
Dr. Matthews also dedicates himself to his work on the American Dental Association and Christian Medical Dental Association. Arguably the most impressive part of his dentistry connects to his time at the Kitchen Dental Clinic in Springfield. In this program, Dr. Matthews can offer quality dental treatment to uninsured, low-income individuals and families.
“As young as he is in the industry, he gets the concept of putting his patients first,” says Dr. Tracy Davis. “His goal is to provide the best dental care in the most compassionate way. Our team is thrilled for him and this incredible honor.”
