Corbin Dental: Matthew G. Corbin, DDS, PA

Ten years ago, Matthew G. Corbin, DDS, PA knew that a future in dentistry would be important for not only himself but his family. While serving in the United States Air Force, he attended Boots to Business in Fairbanks, an entrepreneurial education program offered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) as part of the Department of Defense’s Transition Assistance Program (TAP). 

Through Boots to Business, participants learn the basics of starting and owning a business and it was through this program that Matthew connected with the Alaska Small Business Development Center (Alaska SBDC). He worked with Fairbanks Business Advisor, Alexis Amstutz, to work through his idea in addition to his experience, education, and service. 

About his experience with the Alaska SBDC, he kindly shared, “Alexis has been a fantastic resource for foundational and specific knowledge of starting a business. She took the time to dive into my specialty of dentistry and really understand our market and specific business needs. I’m very thankful for her help as my family transitions out of military service and back home to serve our community’s dental needs!”

Through his dedication and efforts, Matthew has created a fulfilling career serving as an officer and dentist for the United States Air Force. With his tour complete, he and his family are taking on a locally-owned family practice in North Carolina to continue to provide excellence in dentistry. 

Congratulations to Matthew on his continued success. Thank you for your service.
