Matthew Struve, DDS

Dr. Matthew Struve received his Doctorate degree in dentistry at the University of Minnesota. He has been in private practice since 1999 and has owned Lindstrom Family Dentistry since 2010.

Mission work is very important to Dr. Struve. In the past, Dr. Struve has traveled multiple times to the Children’s Shelter of Cebu in Cebu City, Phillipines. While there, he was able to clean and restore many children’s teeth who would otherwise not have access to dental care. As a result, he has formed a very close relationship with the shelter and the people involved.

In Dr. Struve’s free time he enjoys spending time with his wife and six kids, getting away to his cabin up north on the Gunflint Trail, and traveling the world with his wife Jamie. Dr. Struve is a member of the American Dental Association, Minnesota Dental Association, the St. Paul District Dental Society, and the Minnesota Academy of Comprehensive Dentistry.
