About Matthew

Matthew Gahan, dental care leeds

Matthew has been an NHS consultant in Restorative Dentistry since 2010, having completed 10 years of hospital-based training after qualifying as a general dentist in 2000. Matthew has been a GDC registered specialist for 11 years and is one of only a handful of multi-discipline specialists in the region.

 

His long hospital career has allowed him to pursue excellence in his clinical skills and his main remit has been for the oral rehabilitation of oral cancer patients, complex dental cases and the provision of dental implants. In private practice, he provides specialist treatment and management to save teeth, restore smiles and replace missing teeth.

He is involved in postgraduate teaching for dentists and specialists and has published several articles in dental journals. He has lectured regionally and nationally and is an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

Having set up and expanded the Restorative Department at York Hospitals, he is now employed by both the Leeds Dental Institute and Doncaster Hospitals. He divides his time between NHS hospital care, private specialist practice and his family.

Matthew particularly enjoys being able to meet and help a wide variety of people. “Being a specialist allows me to undertake complex cases, which provides my patients with greater satisfaction when they are resolved,” he says. “I love being able to make a positive difference and help them feel confident about their smiles again.”
