Marty Matz, DDS

Dr. Matz knew he wanted to be a dentist by the time he was 4 years old.

Dr. Matz had a great dentist as a child who noticed his curiosity about the profession on his first visit and could see perhaps he would one day be a dentist like him. Looking back, Dr. Matz, recognized that his childhood dentist had excellent technical skills, was well educated, caring and friendly. Sitting in his meticulously sterile office he became Dr. Matz’s professional role model. When Dr. Matz grew up, he received his degree from Creighton University Dental School in Omaha, Nebraska, his hometown.

Today, Dr. Matz has a dental practice located in the heart of Omaha, Nebraska.

Dr. Matz practices general dentistry and enjoys all aspects of the profession; treating the entire mouth and all its conditions as it relates to the body as a whole. He is passionate about working with entire families from grandchildren to grandparents. Dr. Matz believes each patient is an individual with unique physical and emotional needs. He has a special place in his heart for fearful patients and prides himself on putting them at ease.

Dr. Matz’s professional affiliations keep him on top of current trends and skills. He is active in local, state and national dental societies. Dr. Matz is a member of:

• Omaha District Dental Society
• Nebraska Dental Association
• American Dental Association
• American Academy of Implant Dentistry
• American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine

Dr. Matz attends regular seminars in a well-respected study club. And, he always exceeds the required number of hours of continuing education.

Dr. Matz’s hobbies allow him to indulge in his creative side. He enjoys playing and singing music, creating artwork, dental photography, gardening and church involvement. During the winter months, he visits schools with a show that teaches children about dentistry using magic, puppets and music.

Just as he strives to be a good provider for my dental family of patients, Dr. Matz also strives to be a great family man for his wife and three children.
