Matthew T. Goslee, DMD, MPH
I feel honored to be a pediatric dentist, and I love to work with kids and their families to help them with their unique needs. I am focused on prevention and helping with the specific needs of children so they may have a positive dental experience. I like being a pediatric dentist because it allows me to work closely with patients and parents, whether it is helping to solve a particular problem that improves quality of life, or teaching kids how to take good care of their smiles!

While in Peru for two weeks, he helped children and adults with various dental problems along the Amazon River traveling by boat to a different town each day.
Outside the Office
I was born and grew up in Falmouth, MA about two hours from here. I played baseball, soccer, tennis and basketball through most of school. I met my wife, Julie at UCONN Health Center while in graduate school, and she works at Hartford Hospital now. We love to spend time with our two great kids and go on hikes with our energetic dog. My favorite activities include mountain biking, hiking, playing indoor soccer at FSA, tennis, cooking, and coaching. I have been coaching baseball and soccer for years now and it is a lot of fun watching the kids grow and develop new skills.
I hope you will come see us at our office and meet our wonderful team—I could not do any of this without them!
