Dr. Matthew McBride, inspired by his own orthodontist, knew from a very young age he would pursue a career in this dental specialty. Although a West Texas native, he moved to Dallas when he was in high school and graduated from W.T. White. Shortly after, he attended Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, where he received a Certificate in Practical Theology. From there, he attended The University of North Texas in Denton where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, graduating with honors. Staying true to his original plan, he then attended Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, graduating in 2008 with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. He was then accepted into the orthodontic specialty program at Baylor College of Dentistry where he spent an additional three years learning the proper way to align the teeth, jaws and “bite”, while earning a Master of Science degree in biomedical Sciences and a Certificate in Orthodontics.
