We appreciate you entrusting your dental care to us through the years. We are excited to announce our retirement. We have practice dentistry for over 30 years and it is time to retire! You will be receiving the same excellent dental care you are accustomed to from Dr. Matthew McCleery, who will be joining the practice immediately. In looking for a dentist to assume our practice, he exceeds our expectations. He has purchased our practice and looks forward to continuing to provide you and your family with the best dental care available.
Dr. Matthew McCleery was born and raised here in Bend. He is recently married and he and his wife love Bend. He graduated from Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry. Prior to that, he obtained his bachelor’s of science degree in nutrition science from Oregon State University. After dental school, he did a general practice residency at a Yale hospital in Danbury, Connecticut. He has been practicing as an associate dentist in Bend area for many years now. Dr. McCleery also has extensive experience in all types of dental extractions, implants, and more. Dr. McCleery’s implant process allows the procedure to be done in the same office! He plans to upgrade the office by adding a 3-D imaging machine, which can better assess certain dental conditions. His expertise and knowledge will be an asset you will appreciate as a Bend dentist. He is a friendly and compassionate human being, and we are confident he will carry on with the excellent dental care tradition we’ve tried to create for our patients.
Our retirement may come as a surprise to some of you, but we felt it was time to step away from dentistry. We plan to travel, relax, exercise more, and visit family in California. We have enjoyed you, our patients, and have so many warm memories looking back over the years. We thank you for that!
You will still see the familiar faces of our awesome dental team. Lori, Mandy, Stephanie, Meg, Jessica, and Dr. McCleery will be greeting you will smiling faces just as usual! Dr. McCleery is excited to meet you! Thank you everyone for your loyalty and know you will continue to receive the best dental care Bend has to offer!
Dr. Jim & Ginny Murtaugh
