Matthew has over 20 years’ experience working in practice. He started in career as a trainee in Taunton before qualifying in 2001. Following his move to Bristol, Matthew joined BNS, and subsequently joined Dunkley’s after a company buyout.

In more recent years, Matthew has evolved his specialisms to include independent valuations and dentists. Matthew provides independent valuations for a variety of purposes, may that be a shareholder dispute, a potential sale, the breakdown of a relationship or simply a year-end audit process. No matter what the requirement, Matthew will give confidence and clarity on the full picture of a business.

Dental practices, associates, hygienists, and technicians make up a large proportion of Matthew’s client portfolio. He specialises in supporting them with everything from tax planning, advising practice incorporations and appropriate business structures right through to buying, starting, and selling a practice. With his vast experience, Matthew is well placed to advise clients at all stages of their dental career.

Outside of work, Matthew enjoys spending time with his wife and two children whilst also adventuring outdoors for lengthy runs and hikes. One of his biggest achievements is walking the length of Hadrian’s Wall in Cumbria.
