Matthew P. Patterson, D.M.D.
A Lancaster native, Dr. Patterson received his B.A. from the University of Pittsburgh and his D.M.D. from Temple University’s School of Dentistry. He has achieved the distinction of Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine, the gold standard for excellence in the practice of Dental Sleep Medicine. The ABDSM credential is widely recognized as the gold standard for excellence in dental sleep medicine.
Immediately upon earning his dental degree, Dr. Patterson served in the U.S. Navy at Pensacola Naval Air Station, where he underwent extensive post-doctoral training in Periodontics, Fixed and Removable Prosthetics, Oral Surgery and Forensic Dentistry. He served on the historic carrier, U.S.S. Lexington, and counted the elite Blue Angels flight demonstration team among his patients.
After completion of his service, he and his wife, the former Sarah Breneman, returned to Lancaster, where they raised their three children. They are both actively involved in the Lancaster community.
In private practice, Dr. Patterson aggressively pursued additional training, and his commitment to remaining at the leading edge of his profession is unswerving.
A sufferer of Obstructive Sleep Apnea himself, Dr. Patterson used a CPAP machine for several years. As more and more clinical evidence of the effectiveness of oral appliance therapy became available, he decided to test an appliance himself. He was thrilled (as was Sarah!) and never looked back. He trained in Dental Sleep Medicine at the prestigious L.D. Pankey Institute and has been practicing Dental Sleep Medicine ever since. He is an Active member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
Because the busyness of his practice made it difficult to devote himself entirely to caring for snoring and sleep apnea sufferers, Dr. Patterson made the choice in 2018 to leave general practice and establish the Lancaster Snoring and Sleep Center.
