District Governor Barrie Matthews
District 5390 and RI Updates

Barrie Matthews was born and raised in the small Eastern Montana town, Miles City. After attending the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine he moved back to his hometown in 2006. Over the duration of Barrie’s dental career, his passion in dentistry has evolved and he now, almost exclusively, specializes in treatment with dental implants for full-mouth rehabilitation to give his patients a new smile… in one day!

Upon moving back from dental school, and wanting to become involved in his community, Barrie joined the Rotary Club of Miles City! He has been a very active member ever since in both his club and at our district level. Barrie has been club president, twice, club secretary, club new-member recruitment advocate and cheerleader, and served as chair of our district Grants Committee, a member of the district Public Image Committee and an Assistant Governor! His deep passion for Rotary and the fellowship and service-above-self motto Rotary inspires upon all of us were driving forces in his decision to become Montana’s District Governor…. a commitment not easy during the middle of one’s career.

After years of planning, Barrie’s year as DG has arrived! He is beyond excited to meet his fellow Montana Rotarians to share his Rotary passion, and help spark and spread the excitement for this Rotary year, which marks a monumental milestone! Rotary International is led, for the first time in Rotary’s history, by a female - Jennifer Jones, from Canada!

When Barrie isn’t in surgery or attending various dental or Rotary engagements, Barrie and Lindsey are often traveling! They love cheering on the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium, spending time at their cabin on Flathead Lake with their 4 kids and a puppy! Speaking of traveling, Barri
