Dr. Richard U. Mattson

My dental school and orthodontic training are from the University of Pennsylvania as I grew up in Philadelphia. I now realize how lucky I was being exposed in my young years to the tremendous faculty at Penn at that time. I am humbled to realize that many of my treatment decisions stem back to what these great teachers exposed me to. “We stand on the shoulders of giants”.

Beside my career in private practice in Olney, Maryland, I have been on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania serving as Clinic Director and the faculty of the University of Maryland serving as Associate Clinical Professor in Orthodontics. My teaching responsibilities included biomechanics and diagnosis and treatment planning with the orthodontic resident while guiding them with patient care. I also was the orthodontic staff member for the Department of Craniofacial Anomalies at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia and Washington DC.

I am a life time member of the American Association of Orthodontist, American Dental Association, Maryland State Dental Association and the Middle Atlantic Orthodontic Society.
