Meet Drs. McKenna and Matt Gibson
Drs. McKenna and Matt Gibson have dedicated themselves to clinical excellence in dentistry, and they recognize that each patient is an individual with a unique set of dental challenges, concerns, and possible anxieties. They strongly believe in patient education and prevention to provide patients the most conservative and predictable approach to maintaining their dental health long-term. They have a passion for providing patients with the best dental care possible, regardless of what their treatment needs may be.
Life outside of Dentistry
Even with two dentists married to each other, there is still life outside of dentistry. They try (although often unsuccessfully) to not talk about teeth outside of the office. Dr. Matt enjoys outdoor activities, such as hunting and fishing. Dr. McKenna loves spending her time being with her boys and crafting.
They both enjoy anything sports related, especially football and basketball. Sorry, Bama fans—he is a big fan of Auburn athletics, and she is a Tennessee Volunteer at heart. At least they can agree on orange.
Dr. McKenna and Dr. Matt have two sons, Bo and Cooper, and two black labs, Tally and Tackle. They are both members of the Madison Church of Christ.

Dr. Matt Gibson

Dr. Matt completed additional training after dental school at the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at the Audie L. Murphy Veterans Affairs hospital in San Antonio, Texas, where he had the privilege and honor of helping many of our nation’s veterans. During this intense and comprehensive program, he learned how to deliver the highest quality care in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, full mouth reconstruction, dental implants, gum surgeries, sedation, Invisalign, root canals, and other complex cases. This diverse experience allows him to approach cases with a multi-disciplinary perspective, delivering patients true comprehensive care for the best, longest-lasting results possible.
Dr. Matt has an intense passion for learning, which led him to the decision to go back to UAB in 2019 to complete a residency in orthodontics. While he is in school full time, he still sees patients in our office in the evening hours or weekends for many of our specialty type procedures. He is so excited about the opportunities that orthodontics will bring to our practice.
