Dr. Matthew Hei, DDS


Dr. Matthew Hei grew up in Maplewood, graduating from Tartan High School. He studied at the University of Minnesota Duluth and attained a biology and chemistry degree. He then attended the U of M Dental School and earned his dental degree in 2013. In addition, he earned multiple scholarships for dental excellence. Dr. Hei joins our team after numerous years in private practice. 

Dr. Hei is incredibly proud to serve patients at Dental Health of Maplewood because as a child, he was a Dental Health of Maplewood patient, as were his parents and grandparents! Dr. Hei also has experience as an emergency dentist, which has made him comfortable addressing all types of dental concerns, treating everyone from young children to senior patients.

Dr. Hei truly loves being a dentist. He enjoys small talk with patients, goofing around with their kids, and taking the time to develop a relationship with them. When patients trust their dentist, Dr. Hei feels that their care and treatments are ultimately better. This fits with Dr. Hei's competitive side. He loves the challenge of diagnosing and solving a tricky case while on a mission for constant improvement.

Dr. Hei has held memberships in the American Dental Association, Minnesota Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. Over the years, he has taken numerous continuing education courses, and with his affiliations, he has stayed up-to-date on the latest in what dentistry has to offer.

Dr. Hei is a committed family man, enjoying time with his wife Kelsey and their three children in his time. He is also an outdoor enthusiast, playing golf, hockey, volleyball, and riding road bikes. He also coaches his children's soccer and hockey teams and is a big sci-fi reader. Another of his favorite activities is exploring the town and searching for the best doughnut shop or sushi restaurant.
