I have enjoyed practicing dentistry in Clinton for over six years and the best part of my practice is changing people’s perspective of “The Dentist.” My goal is to not only create a positive environment, but to also provide excellent dental work with the very least amount of discomfort. I’m proud to help the people of Clinton and the surrounding areas have the very best dental care possible. - Matthew K. Chow, D.D.S.

At Home

Dr. Chow was born and raised in Clarksdale, MS, where most of his time was spent in the outdoors hunting, fishing, playing sports and rooting for the Rebels! He was also very active in church where he did everything from running the video cameras to going on mission trips, of course, his favorite being medical and dental mission trips to Honduras where he could put his dental knowledge to work. 

Dr. Chow went to New Orleans where he attended dental school and found not only a new home in Louisiana, but most importantly his amazing wife Kim. After school he spent time practicing dentistry in Alabama, but it was decided that there really is no place like home. Mrs. Kim and Dr. Chow now are back home in Mississippi where and most of their time is spent chasing after their beautiful sons, Brandon and Preston.
