Mat will already be known to many on the Kapiti Coast and Porirua but after 8 great years he has gone out on his own. Turning the old Rocca show home into a modern Dental Practice has been a roller coaster ride but here we are – same great service, same bad jokes!

Here at MatPDental we want to make your dental experience a positive and rewarding one. With our purpose built, modern and comfortable surroundings we offer a wide range of dental treatments for the whole family.

At MatPDental we aim to

  1. provide the best available dental treatments
  2. offer clear explanations, planning and options
  3. encourage preventative techniques

We believe in treating people the way we would want to be treated ourselves.

About Us

Mat Popham

Mat Popham graduated as a Dental Surgeon in 1996 from Otago University. Upon graduating he spent two years in the hospital system. This was followed by a year working in private practice in Wellington before heading off on a two year OE with wife Anna Fulton. Five years later we came home to start a family. Holly and then Toby came along to fill our house with noise, joy and excitement.

I am a general dentist, jack of all trades and problem solver by instinct. I have special interests in minor oral surgery, Implantology and Forensic dentistry. I was privileged to be involved with Disaster Victim identification after the Christchurch earthquake and Carterton balloon crash. These trying situations bring the greatest level of personal and professional satisfaction of a job well done.

I enjoy going to work every day and look forward to the challenges to come.

Anna Fulton

Anna Fulton is a trained primary school teacher who is very much hoping that 20 years living with a dentist will stand her in good stead as she makes a leap out of her comfort zone and into the world of Dental administration. After nearly 7 years as a stay at home mum she re-entered the world of teaching last year which was both challenging and rewarding. She is looking forward to meeting and helping our patients as they become a part of our new venture.
