Dr. Matt O’Shea


With a focus on cosmetic and restorative dentistry, Dr. Matt O’Shea has been practicing in downtown Decatur since the summer of 2005 after graduating from the University of Louisville and receiving a B.S. Biology degree from the University of Georgia in 2000.

Dr. Matt is an active member of Spear Faculty Club and Spear Education based in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he receives advanced training in cosmetic dentistry, implant restorations, and comprehensive full mouth reconstruction. He is the Treasurer and former President of the Decatur Dental Study Club, active member of a local Spear Study Club, Hinman Dental Society, Georgia Dental Association, and American Dental Association.

As a Co-Chair of Project Development, Dr. Matt is serves on the board of directors and has been heavily involved with the creation of the Open Wide Foundation.  The Scottsdale based foundation has partnered with dental corporations, local government and local dental schools to open a sustainable first class dental clinic in an impoverished neighborhood near Guatemala City and is staffed year round by a combination American dentists, local Guatemalan dentists, local Guatemalan dental students, and the occasional American dental students.

Locally, Dr. Matt is a Junior Board member of the Clarkston based Fugees Academy, a private school for low income war refugees.  Otherwise he can be found searching for a mountain to snowboard, a wave to surf, a new beer to brew, a new coffee grind, or just going for a run through Piedmont Park with his Australian cattle dog, Scout.
