Meet the Doctor

Meet Dr. Matt Heaton 


Welcome, and thank you for visiting our site.  Our practice has the unique distinction as one of the first periodontal offices in the region (founded by Dr. Bill Rogers in 1972), and I have the distinct pleasure of continuing our legacy of providing personalized, patient-driven periodontal care to the people of the Knoxville area and surrounding communities.  


I come to Knoxville from Dallas, where I received both my dental and post-doctoral degrees as well as my certification in Periodontics from Baylor College of Dentistry.  I have achieved recognition as a Diplomate of Periodontology and Dental Implant Surgery by the American Board of Periodontology, the highest standard within our specialty, as well as the distinction of a Pierre Fauchard Fellow - a peer-nominated membership.



My wife Sara and I are both native Texans from Tyler, and are proud graduates of Texas A&M University, however we were drawn to the beauty and relaxed atmosphere of East Tennessee, where we now root for the Vols (except with the Aggies are playing!).  We have three wonderful children, are active members of Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church, and enjoy spending time exploring the beauty of this area, from the the playgrounds and soccer fields in our local parks!
