Born and raised in Bridge City, Texas, Dr. Matt Hicks attended Bridge City High School and then went on to receive Bachelor’s degrees in both Biology and Chemistry from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
While attending UL Lafayette, he was a pitcher for the Ragin’ Cajuns baseball team. Dr. Hicks is the only student athlete in UL Lafayette history to earn two separate degrees in 4 years.
Then he attended the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in New Orleans to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. In 2018, he will become the youngest doctor to complete the one-year fellowship in implant surgery and implant reconstruction at the TexMAX AAID Implant MaxiCourse, which is accredited by the prestigious American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
Dr. Hicks is passionate about continuing his education and spends much of his free time taking advanced courses to improve and create an environment that puts an emphasis on quality patient care and comfort.
In addition to dentistry, Dr. Hicks and his wife, Cydni, are avid Astros fans who try to attend as many home games as possible. On nice days, you will likely catch him relaxing at the beach or on the water fishing.
