News from Dr. Jim Watson

It is with mixed emotions that I am taking this opportunity to announce my retirement from the practice of General Dentistry at the end of this year. it is hard to say goodbye to a discipline which has challenged and rewarded me for such a long time.

Relationships are built with time and trust, and this makes it difficult to leave because I consider most of you friends as well as patients. It is with sincere humility and gratitude that I wish to thank each of you for the privilege of serving your dental needs.

Dr. Mat Watson, Dr. Andre Carvalho, and our very capable staff at Watson Family Dentistry will continue to serve you as I transition out of the practice. With that said, I will continue into the new year finishing all cases in progress and to help transition everyone.

I would also like to introduce Dr. Andre Carvalho to those who have not met him. Andre grew up as a patient in our practice. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma and then earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Baylor College of Dentistry here in Dallas. Dr. Andre Joined us after practicing in the Dallas area for the last few years. Dr. mat and I have been mentoring Dr. Andre for a long time, and we are thrilled he has joined our practice.

Finally, I part with best wishes to your all and continued good health and happiness.

Dr. Mat Watson

Dr. Mat Watson was born and raised in Richardson, Texas. He considers it a privilege to be able to work in the area in a family practice with his father, Dr. Jim Watson. Like his father, Mat was drawn to the field of dentistry because he wanted to be able to help others. He enjoys interacting with patients and relishes the opportunity to improve their lives by enhancing their oral health and overall well-being. He also strives to provide service and leadership in his hometown of Richardson.

Continuing education is also a priority for Mat. He has completed the Dental Implant Continuum at Baylor College of Dentistry and continues to participate in the Spear Study Club where dental professionals exchange experience and knowledge to enhance their ability to care for their patients.

Dr. Mat Watson is devoted to his wife, Jordan, and their two sons, Tripp and Ford. Although Mat is very involved in all of the activities that come with raising a young family, when time allows it he loves hunting, fishing and golfing.
