About

Dr. Matthew Krieger

Originally from Yakima, Washington, Dr. Matthew Krieger was inspired to pursue oral surgery while attending dental school. He has always been driven by the urge to help others and found that the specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery provided a way to comfortably and efficiently resolve patients’ dental and facial pain, as well as improve facial esthetics through procedures such as dental implant placement.

Dr. Krieger earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from Whitworth College in 2006. He completed dental school at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, in 2011 with a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Following dental school, Dr. Krieger completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at Christiana Care Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware.

While Dr. Krieger has been practicing Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery since 2015, he has been focused exclusively on the “All on 4” implant procedure since 2019. Dr. Krieger found a true passion for this surgery when he witnessed the life changing effect and profound impact the procedure can have on the health and emotional well being of patients. Dr. Krieger looks forward to delivering this exceptional oral surgery and dental implant care to patients in the Austin community.
