Meet Dr. Matthew Ward, DDS
I grew up in the small town of Cassopolis, located in southern Michigan. After graduating high school, I attended Central Michigan University and the University of Detroit Mercy where I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2001. In my early years, I had the advantage of working for a multi-doctor group practice where I learned and honed my skills in all aspects of dentistry. This allows me to offer a full range of services to my patients. I have always had a passion for dentistry and for the past 15 years have had the privilege of serving the tri-cities area. As a member of the American Dental Association, the Michigan Dental Association, and the Saginaw Valley District Dental Society, I am always keeping up with the latest innovations in dentistry. Giving back to the community is also a passion of mine. I truly enjoy donating time to the free clinics and cancer screening programs around Bay City. I also participate with Donated Dental Services of Michigan. This program allows patients who qualify to obtain free dental services through my office. In my downtime, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children. In 2008 we welcomed twins, a boy and a girl, into our family and it has been a joy watching them grow and mature over the years. As avid outdoors people, we enjoy hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, swimming, skiing, and other activities.
