DR. MATTHEW W. HATZKE, “DR. MATT”
I am thrilled to be joining my parents, Dr. Hatzke and Gail, and the amazing staff here at Silicon Valley Dental Care. It is such a unique opportunity to become an oral health provider in the practice that I grew up in and it’s something that I cherish. Dentistry is an amazing profession that fosters collaborative relationships between the patients and dentist. It is my goal to help develop a plan that allows you to achieve the highest level of oral health you desire.

Upon graduation, I was drafted into Major League Soccer by the Los Angeles Galaxy. In 2008, I was able to achieve a lifelong dream of playing soccer for our hometown team, the San Jose Earthquakes.
