Dr. Matthew MacGinnis is an Orange County, board-certified orthodontist who is proud to be a homegrown Villa Park product. Dr. MacGinnis received his undergraduate degree in Biology from Point Loma Nazarene where he also played collegiate basketball. He then attended dental school at the University of Southern California (USC) graduating magna cum laude. Dr. MacGinnis then entered the “cross-town rival” and nationally recognized University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Orthodontics Residency Program, where he received an additional three years of orthodontic specialty training and a Master of Dental Medicine degree. While at UCLA, Dr. MacGinnis served as the chief resident and received numerous accolades and awards for his skills as a clinician and clinical researcher. His clinical research has been published in prominent orthodontic journals and has been recognized as an important advance in orthodontics. Dr. MacGinnis is a board-certified orthodontist, an honor achieved by less than half of practicing orthodontists.
Dr. MacGinnis has strong local roots. He was born and raised in Orange, CA and attended Nohl Canyon Elementary, Cerro Villa Junior High and Villa Park High School. At Villa Park, he captained the varsity basketball team and was honored with first team all Orange County in his Junior and Senior seasons. Because of his leadership and school involvement, Villa Park permanently retired his #22 jersey. On a personal note, Dr. MacGinnis is happy to be living back in Orange with his wife, Wendy, and their two beautiful children, Dane & Morgan. Between creating beautiful smiles, training for triathlons, golfing, playing in adult flag football leagues, spending time with his family, and cheering for USC, it’s no wonder he’s always smiling.
