Dr. Matthew Bernard, DMD, and the entire team at St. Joseph Dentistry, are excited about his most recent achievement – Board Certification by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. The designation is the highest level of certification attainable by a Pediatric Dentist. Dr. Bernard is the only Board Certified Pediatric Dentist in southwest Michigan. He is seeing patients in St. Joseph Dentistry’s recently completed pediatric wing, located at 3386 Niles Road in St. Joseph, Michigan.
“Being a Diplomate of The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry is my biggest professional accomplishment, and I could not be more proud,” said Dr. Bernard. “It exemplifies my drive to deliver the highest quality of patient care and my desire to be a lifelong learner. At St. Joseph Dentistry, we offer exceptional care in a fun, calm, and caring environment. We understand dental treatment can be scary to children, so we approach our patients with kindness explaining the process every step of the way. Families come to us with concerns and, together, we construct a plan on how best to deliver that care in a way that matches their values.”
Dr. Bernard’s Pediatric Dentistry experience began at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he received his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences. He went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. Dr. Bernard completed his Pediatric Dental Residency at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC, where he focused on comprehensive care of medically complex children, dental rehabilitation, and oral sedation.
