Matthew R. Comfort, DDS, MAGD, FICD, AACDmip

My practice has a clear mission: to positively impact people’s lives by providing exceptional dental care. With a family legacy of dental professionals spanning three generations, I am proud to continue the tradition of excellent family dental care in Rocklin, Roseville, and the surrounding communities since 1998. Furthermore, I take great joy in supporting various charity organizations to raise awareness and resources. Through the SDDS Smiles for Kids charity program, I have had the privilege of contributing to a healthier community.

After graduating in 1997 from the University of the Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry San Francisco, I went into private practice while continuing my academic experience by later returning to the University of the Pacific as an adjunct professor in dental anatomy and as a course director of the international dental studies program. I continually strive to broaden my education, having completed extensive cosmetic training at the University of California, Los Angeles, and more recently receiving specialized training for the placement of dental implants. I will continue my quest to provide a deeper range of skills and services for my patients.

I am devoted to various professional organizations, such as participating as a member of the Board of Directors of the Sacramento District Dental Society, Peer Review Committee, The California Dental Association, including as a volunteer at the Scientific Sessions, American Dental Association, a current Accreditation Candidate of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. I have committed to over twice the recommended minimum continuing education standards set forth by the California Board for Licensure Renewal. I recently became a Master of the American General Dentistry, awarded in 2022. I am one of the dentists who have been awarded the prestigious title of FICD Fellow, International College of Dentists.

During my leisure time, I enjoy various activities that bring me closer to my family and fuel my passions. These include fly-fishing, backpacking, and exploring the realm of viticulture and enology through the Placer County Wine and Grape Growers Association. Additionally, I take part in remote control aviation alongside the Red Barons, affiliated with the esteemed Academy of Model Aeronautics. The Sacramento Area Rocketry Group and the National Association of Rocketry indulge my fascination with rockets, while model railroading and archery add to my interests.
