Dr. Stephen R. Matteson Memorial fund banner

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Dr. Stephen R. Matteson Memorial Fund.

Dr. Stephen R. Matteson, Professor, Dept. of Developmental Dentistry, received his D.D.S. degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1962.  After two years as a general dentistry officer in the United States Air Force in North Carolina, he returned to his native state of New Jersey and practiced general dentistry for ten years.

Steve was recruited as Chair of the Department of Dental Diagnostic Science at The University of Texas Health Science at San Antonio Dental School in 1988 and served in that leadership role until 2000 when he retired and was appointed Professor Emeritus in 2002.  He returned for a second career in academics and service to the profession in 2005.  He was a key figure in establishing the Dental School’s, NIH funded, Evidence-Based Practice CATs program and was also appointed Editor of the Texas Dental Journal.  As TDJ editor, Dr. Matteson was recognized with multiple national and international awards including the American Dental Association’s Golden Apple Award, the International College of Dentists Outstanding ICD Publication in 2011 and the Golden Pen Award in 2012.   As editor of Texas Dental Journal he nurtured scholarly efforts of our faculty and students. 

Dr. Matteson was living in San Antonio with his wife, Dr. Mary Ann Matteson, Professor Emeritus at the UT Health Science Center's School of Nursing. He loved being with his three children and five grandchildren, all of whom live in San Antonio. He was most proud that they had good hearts and were caring and compassionate people. His passions were singing, golf, boating, photography and North Carolina basketball.

He will be missed dearly by all who had the good fortune of knowing him. To make a gift in his memory, please complete and submit the form below.
