Meet Our Doctors
Matthew Swan, DDS, MSD
Dr. Swan is so excited to join the amazing team at Salem Smiles! He loves all aspects of dentistry, but he has a special affinity for kids. Because of this he decided to pursue 4 extra years of training and is a specialist in both Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics. He is one of the few dual-specialized doctors in all of Utah and the FIRST in Utah County!
He grew up in Cottonwood Heights and attended BYU where he majored in History. After completing dental school in San Francisco, his family moved all the way across the country to Rhode Island for specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry. He spent a number of years in private practice in Utah and then decided he loved orthodontics so much that he wanted to be able to offer it to all of his patients. He packed up his family of 8 and moved across the country again—to Florida this time—to pursue specialist training in Orthodontics! He was trained in and is comfortable using all the latest, most advanced orthodontic techniques.
Dr. Swan and his family miss the gorgeous beaches and warm, humid days in Florida but they’re very glad to be back to the beautiful scenery that Utah offers.
Dr. Swan loves all sports, especially golf and basketball. He is a musician and a connoisseur of good music. He plays the piano, saxophone, guitar, and is learning drums. He always loves to settle down with a good book, but he rarely finds time for any of this because his 6 kids find plenty of great ways to fill up all of his time! He loves hanging out with his wife, 2 boys, and 4 girls. There’s nothing he’d rather do.
He is excited to offer comprehensive specialist care to the families of Salem Smiles and looks forward to getting to know you!
