Dr. Matthew Hicks


Dr. Matthew Hicks was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, graduated Stanford University with a BA in history and a BS in biology, and completed dental school at the University of Alabama. Upon completion of his general practice residency training at OHSU, Dr. Hicks entered private practice as an associate with Dr. Long at this practice in 1997. In early 2004, Dr. Hicks assumed ownership of the practice from Dr. Long. Dr. Hicks has worked in public health clinics in the Tri County area, has been volunteering his services in Mexico and Central America since dental school, and has also been volunteering with Multnomah County’s “dental access program” providing dental services to underserved members of our community since 2000. Outside of work, Dr. Hicks’ interests include outdoor recreation (surfing, backcountry skiing, fly fishing); environmental advocacy; and enjoying the company of his wife Christine, son Aidan, and daughter Juliana.

For me, Moreland Neighborhood Dental is a special place. I am humbled by our patients who have placed their trust in me and our exceptional team. Because of this trust, we can use the best of our skills to help improve the lives of the people in our community. This is the foundation of the long-term relationships that are an everyday part of life in our practice. And at the end of the day, relationships like these are what mean the world to me.
-Matt Hicks, DMD

Words From Our Patients

"Dr Matt Hicks is the greatest"

Dr. Matt Hicks is the greatest. He is very personable and explains everything he's doing to you. He doesn't put on any airs and is kind & thoughtful. The best dentist I've ever had and I have had many. Never waited more than 10 minutes or so. The waiting room is people friendly and the whole place is very very eco-conscious.
Nicholas D.

"He makes your comfort a priority"

Amazing place! Couldn’t recommend It more! I have been going here for about 10 years if not more. I had a hard time with previous dental experiences, I trust Dr Hicks so much. Gentle dentist and explains everything that’s happening. He makes your comfort a priority.

"Doctor Hicks is very gentle"

Doctor Hicks is very gentle and he explains step by step what he is doing and what to expect. A much needed bedside manner for anyone experiencing dental anxiety like I do. Our whole family goes to the office and we are highly satisfied. We just started last year after our former dentist retired. From the front desk to the Dentists, it's a pleasant and professional experience. Love them!
