Dr. Matthew Gerald attended the University of Virginia through 2006 and earned his DDS from the University of Maryland Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 2010. He comes from what can only be described as a “dental family.” His father, Glenn, is a dentist, as are his brother, Mark, and his sister, Emily. In fact, Dr. Gerald worked for his father’s practice, Glenn D. Gerald, DDS, for a year before opening his current practice in 2011.
Dedicated to continuing education, Dr. Gerald has already studied for 100 hours with the American Dental Implant Association. In addition, he takes classes on the latest dental technology so that he can bring leading-edge techniques to his patients. Of all his passions regarding dentistry, Dr. Gerald says that what he loves most is being able to provide both functional and beautiful solutions for a variety of dental problems – all while getting to form a great relationship with his patients.
Dr. Gerald is a member of many prestigious dental organizations, including the American Dental Association, the International Dental Implant Association, the Virginia Dental Association and the Northern Virginia Dental Society.
When he’s not providing his patients with superior dental care, Dr. Gerald enjoys strength training, watching the Redskins, Capitals, Nationals and Wizards, spending time with friends, and traveling.

Tara Patterson, Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist for over 15 years and obtained my dental hygiene degree at Allegany College of Maryland. Raised in the mountains of West Virginia, after hygiene school I moved to Beverly Hills where I practiced for a few years. Now I currently reside in Lake Ridge with my husband and our three children. With a true passion for oral health, I am known for making the most nervous patients feel comfortable. I am honored to be a part of this team and to be able to provide outstanding care to great patients. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, horseback riding and the great outdoors.
Regina, Office Manager
I have been in the dental field for over 10 years. I started my career as a dental assistant and then transitioned into dental management. Patient advocacy has been a passion and a challenge that has always lined up with my overall enjoyment of people. Building personal relationships, working through treatment concerns and creating financial plans are all skills that I strive to achieve great excellence in. Becoming a part of Dr. Matthew Gerald’s office has helped further my education and utilize my knowledge and experience more than any career or office that I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of. Other than loving the environment of our office, our patients are top-notch, our training is continuous and Dr. Gerald’s desire for his team to succeed in our goals is always so gratifying.
I was born and raised in the Midwest and have been residing in the DC area for the last 8 years. I love spending my free time with my husband, our daughter and our family dog.

I could not imagine a better place to work towards achieving these goals and live up to our motto of: We listen. We educate. We genuinely care.
I was born and raised in the Woodbridge area. On my time off I enjoy spending it with my husband and our 2 children.
