Meet Dr. Matt
Hello friends! Let me be the first to welcome you to our site. My team and I hope that you find our site packed full of useful information, as well as both motivational and inspirational messaging and images. Before you get too involved, let me give you a little background information on myself and Bynum Aesthetic Dentistry. I am originally from Southern California where I earned my undergraduate degree from The University of California, San Diego. From there I left the beaches of sunny Southern California and headed to the Midwest for a change in scenery and culture. There I earned my dental degree from The University of Iowa, College of Dentistry. While it seems like just yesterday, I have been practicing dentistry now for over 14 years.
Bynum Aesthetic Dentistry opened its doors in January 1998, and we have not looked back since. For over 12 years we have been providing individualized, high-tech, high-touch, quality cosmetic, aesthetic and general dentistry to the Greenville community and surrounding areas. When I opened the doors to Bynum Aesthetic Dentistry, I had set an intention to change as many lives as possible through our talents, customer service and expertise. Years later my team and I have done just that! We take pride in the fact that our clientele reaches beyond the Greenville area and into many states throughout the US and also into countries beyond our borders. We are truly blessed and honored to care for so many people who are wanting or are ready for a change. Not just in their appearance, but in their care and their surroundings.
I have been extremely fortunate in my dental career to have been exposed to the very latest in materials and procedures while both learning and teaching at the world’s premier post-graduate institution, The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies or what dental professionals and people across the world know as LVI. For about 10 years now, I have been a featured speaker and clinical instructor, teaching progressive dental concepts and procedures to dentists and dental offices all over the world. Aside from the hands-on clinical teaching and instruction I give, I also do quite a bit of public speaking on topics ranging from clinical excellence and restorative dentistry to practice management/motivation and neuromuscular dentistry/occlusion to both dentists and dental professionals.
I am the co-director and co-founder of the “Achieving Extreme Success” seminar series where entire dental offices from around the globe come to train and learn about the inner workings of a successful dental practice. Together with my lecture partner and co-author, Dr. Art Mowery, and our amazing teams, we serve to teach dental offices the art of changing the dental experience for both patients and professionals alike. I am a featured author for many dental publications which are distributed all over the world, and continue to serve as a clinical evaluator and consultant to a number of dental manufacturers around the globe in the area of product development and clinical testing of dental materials.
In early 2008, I accomplished a long time goal and dream of publishing a book! The Boomerang Effect was written with success principles and concepts from the years and experience of both personal and professional development. While the book was initially intended for the dental profession, it has spread beyond the profession and into the hands of those who seek to improve and develop themselves. The book is a universal blueprint for virtually any job or profession out there and applies to so much more of life than teeth that it is being well received by people of all walks of life. The next project is to re-write and release a new book to the public chalked full of self-help and inspirational messaging, so look for it coming soon!
I am a long standing member and lecturer of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD); the International Association of Comprehensive Aesthetics (IACA); the American Dental Association (ADA); and the South Carolina Dental Association (SCDA).
While I love this profession of dentistry, my life “on the outside” consists of spending time with my wife and business partner, Dr. Ann Bynum and my three sons: Matthew, Luke and John. We all have reasons for doing what we do, and these are mine. Coaching my boys in baseball, basketball and watching them do karate are all things Ann and I enjoy with the boys. Together we love anything that involves water and we love heading to the lake on weekends. We also enjoy water skiing and wake boarding, snow skiing and anything involving Mickey Mouse (well, Ann and the kids do!). With the push of friends and Ann, I have recently come into the world of triathlon and endurance sports and am enjoying the training and physical results from that training. I love to travel, enjoy fine dining experiences, and love drinking and collecting fine wine.
Life is indeed a journey and mine has taken me to some amazing places around the world. However, the one thing that beats any place I can go on my travels is returning home to my family and hearing the words: “Daddy’s home! We missed you! Did you get us some surprises?”
