Dr Matthew Carter Papillion NE Dentist

Matthew D. Carter, DDS | Dentist

Dr. Matthew Carter graduated from Creighton University Dental School in 2001 and has been practicing dentistry ever since. He married the love of his life a year later and decided together that they would raise their family here in Omaha, Nebraska. After several years of honing the skills he acquired in Dental School, Dr. Carter purchased the practice of Dr. Fred Tafoya in 2006. After some intense introspection, Drs’ Carter and Torres decided to re-organize their practice to address the fundamental mistrust between Dr and patient by creating an environment where trust comes first.

They wanted an office that would address improving their patients health needs and lives in order to bring about a positive advancement for their patients and in themselves. In this environment, patients learn about how patients patterns of behavior have put them where they are today, and what needs to be done to improve themselves! The best reward he feels is when, after a patient has completed treatment, they’ve put themselves in a position to maintain their teeth as long as they need them.

Patients goals are unique to each patient, so there’s no “one size fits all” standard that can be applied to everyone across the board. After speaking with patients’, Dr Carter uses the patients attitudes, goals along with what he can offer as a dentist to come up with a treatment plan to discuss with the patient.

As a happy husband and father, Dr. Carter enjoys spending most of his free time with his family. Father of three (Nico, Elynn and Theodore), Dr Carter very much enjoys helping his kids with their activities such as; Tae Kwon Do, golf or helping tutor their studies. If time allows, Dr. Carters other passions are reading, golfing, hunting/fishing, and sometimes a little gaming.
