Meet Dr. Matheson

Stuart Matheson, DDS, MCID

Dr. Stuart Matheson grew up in Sydney, Nova Scotia. After finishing high school, he left home to study at Mount Allison University. Frequent dental appointments during his college years sparked an interest in dentistry and prompted him to continue his studies at McGill Dental School. At McGill, it was common to enhance dental education with a one-year hospital residency, and Dr. Matheson was fortunate to receive a position at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Following this wonderful experience, he spent a few years in the working world, concentrating on pediatric dentistry, first in rural Saskatchewan and then back home in the Maritimes.

Dr. Matheson’s interest in orthodontics began in dental school and increased through early work experience. He decided to specialize in orthodontics. Dr. Matheson attended graduate school at the University of Western Ontario, and graduated as an orthodontist in 1989. His strong roots in the Maritimes drew him east, and the greatest need in the region at that time was in Prince Edward Island. Dr. Matheson practiced here for a couple years and then he met Marie, married, and settled down. The rest, as they say, is history.

Dr. Matheson has a keen interest in all aspects of orthodontics, from interceptive techniques for young children to complex restorative needs for adult patients. He enjoys the application of new technologies in his practice. He has always employed a variety of techniques. His current interest is in the customization of treatment appliances to make treatment better and faster for his patients.

Dr. Matheson and Marie live in Stratford with their two teenage boys. Life is very busy and they love it that way. Their favorite escape is wasting away a summer afternoon boating on the Charlottetown harbour.
