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
- provide the best available dental treatments
- offer clear explanations, planning and options
- encourage preventative techniques
We believe in treating people the way we would want to be treated ourselves.
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 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.
