Matthew A. Pollard, DDS
Dr. Matthew A. Pollard holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Hardin-Simmons University, located in Abilene, Texas. Following his graduation in 1997, Dr. Pollard worked in the environmental field until returning to university two years later to pursue a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Texas A & M Baylor College of Dentistry in his home town of Dallas, Texas. Dr. Pollard graduated with honors in 2005, receiving his regional and national board certifications, scoring in the 90th percentile in clinical and didactic components of both examinations.
Dr. Pollard has dreamed of living in Western Washington since the summer of 1992, when he first travelled to the Pacific Northwest for a month long trek of the Olympic wilderness. He returned to Washington almost every summer thereafter making similar hikes. Upon graduation from dental school, Dr. Pollard’s dream was realized when he was offered an associate position with Dr. Thomas W. Creed, who had opened his practice 26 years prior in the tight-knit community of Silverdale, Washington. A year later, Dr. Pollard purchased the practice from Dr. Creed and has enjoyed converting it into a state-of-the-art clinical dental practice.
After only his first year in practice, Dr. Pollard was recognized by the readers of Central Kitsap Reporter’s “Best Of...” awards as the Best Dentist in Central Kitsap. Additionally, Dr. Pollard was voted “Best Dentist" by the readers of West Sound Home & Garden Magazine.

While in this severely dentally underserved country, Dr. Pollard, along with 20 other doctors, were able to perform Dental Implant Placements, Sinus Lifts, Ridge Splits, Ramus and Chin Block surgeries on over 500 patients, free of charge. Here are some photos of Dr. Pollard in action.
