Scott Matheson, BSc, DMD, Dentist with Southpointe Dental

Get to know Dentist Dr. Scott Matheson, who serves patients in Alberta, Canada.  

Dr. Matheson is an established dentist who is currently serving patients at Southpointe Dental – a full-service dental practice located in Red Deer, Alberta (Canada). The practice provides a safe, comfortable and accessible location for patients’ general dental needs. Whether it is time for a routine checkup, a root canal procedure or any other service, the mission of Southpointe Dental is to provide reliable, quality dental service to all of their patients while treating them like family.

Dr. Matheson originally hails from Golden, British Columbia where he spent his formative years either outdoors taking advantage of the mountains or playing competitive sports including golf, soccer, and hockey. He even had a couple teeth knocked out in the process and spent his fair share of time in the dental chair!

After leaving home to play junior hockey and travel the world, Dr. Matheson pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in 2007 at Thompson Rivers University, majoring in chemical biology. During his undergrad, he was privileged enough to work for the government researching topics such as the taste and aroma of wine. Furthermore, his senior honours project on “Oral antimicrobial peptides with applications in oral health” was published in the International Journal of Biology. From there, it was a natural transition to dentistry.

Dr. Matheson received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at the University of British Columbia, graduating with multiple recognitions. After graduation, he moved to Alberta and settled in Sylvan Lake in a home he shares with his rambunctious Golden Retriever, Luna.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dr. Matheson practices in all areas of general dentistry and serves patients of all ages. He always looks forward to helping patients and their families achieve healthy, beautiful smiles.
