Michael Matsuda, DDS

Meet Dr. Matsuda

Michael Matsuda, DDSDr. Michael L. Matsuda, is a board certified periodontist of the American Board of Periodontology. He attended the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco & specialized in periodontology and dental implants during his residency at Oregon Health and Science University School of Dentistry. Dr. Michael has worked in private practice with his father Dr. Mel since 2012 & loves the family atmosphere at Hillsboro Implants & Periodontics (HIP).  In the decade Dr. Michael has been in private practice, he has been selected for fellowship in three prestigious honorary organizations that the majority of dentists will not achieve in a lifetime of practice (see below).  

Dr. Michael has intimate knowledge and extensive skill in oral implantology and implant related surgeries including advanced hard and soft tissue augmentation procedures such as sinus augmentation and bone regeneration.  Periodontal plastic surgery procedures such as esthetic soft tissue grafting and esthetic crown lengthening also figured heavily in his training, as did regenerative periodontal therapies.

In addition to teaching, patient care and research in the Department of Periodontology, Dr. Michael gained invaluable training in the treatment of medically compromised patients through hospital residency rotations at the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center at OHSU.  He has been privileged to attend several prestigious advanced surgical courses beyond school and shown great enthusiasm for staying on the cutting edge of evidence-based practice, incorporating the latest technological advances into patient treatment options.

Dr. Michael is proud to be an associate professor in the Graduate Periodontics department at OHSU.  He greatly enjoys mentoring the future of the profession & training them in advanced surgical procedures.
