North Shore Orthodontics
Dr Lewis grew up in Wahroonga and attended St Aloysius' College. He then went on to the University of Sydney and graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery. This was followed by more than ten years in general dentistry in rural Australia and overseas.
Dr Lewis returned to the University of Sydney to follow his dream and achieve his specialist qualifications. Immediately after graduating, he joined North Shore Orthodontics as a partner.
He is committed to orthodontic excellence - not only in his practices but within the profession - and continued to teach in the specialist orthodontic program for more than a decade before becoming an accreditor of specialists training programs. He has held many professional positions and is currently the Vice President of the Australian Society of Orthodontics.
Dr Lewis enjoys travel to unusual destinations as well as snow skiing and hiking. His family runs a small rural cattle property as a diversion to clinical practice and city life.
Matthew grew up in Albury prior to moving to Killara as a boy. He was educated at St Aloysius’ College junior school before becoming a boarder at St Ignatius’ College Riverview. After graduating from Sydney University, where he obtained degrees in Bachelor of Medical Science and Bachelor of Dentistry, Matthew headed to Tamworth to gain experience as a general dentist.
He then went on to study orthodontics in Denmark. Upon returning to Australia, he completed a Doctor of Clinical Dentistry (Orthodontics) at the University of Western Australia. Whilst in Perth, Matthew was involved in research and publications on the topics of oral health and inter-molar mandibular distraction osteogenesis (IMDO). As part of his time in Perth he taught orthodontics to dental students at the University of Western Australia.
One of his special interests is biomechanical force systems and their application for minimising orthodontic treatment times. Some of his favourite things to do are skiing, bushwalking and building intricate Lego structures.
