Originally from Yakima, Washington, Dr. Matthew Krieger was inspired to pursue oral surgery while attending dental school. He has always been driven by the urge to help others and found that oral surgery could relieve patients of pain while providing a beneficial impact on their lives. Dr. Krieger enjoys building positive relationships with referring doctors and general dentists, and he looks forward to delivering exceptional oral surgery care to patients in the Dallas community.
Dr. Krieger wants his patients to know that he values being able to educate patients about their treatment and that he understands those with dental phobias or anxieties. He strives to make every patient feel comfortable and welcomed while in his care, and he believes that establishing connections with patients through small talk, discussing the steps of treatment, and answering any questions is a great way to help his patients feel taken care of and at ease.
Dr. Krieger earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from Whitworth College in 2006. He completed dental school from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, in 2011 with a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Following dental school, Dr. Krieger completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at Wilmington Hospital in Delaware. There, he gained years of hands-on experience in a hospital setting and was trained in the safe administration of anesthesia and IV sedation.
Dr. Krieger is a member of the American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons and the Texas Society of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons.
When he’s not at work, Dr. Krieger enjoys working out and cooking. He and his wife are foodies, and they love experimenting and finding new restaurants. In his free time, he enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with his wife and their canine companion—a Goldendoodle!
