Matthew Hashimoto DDS
Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, Dr. Hashimoto is a periodontist by day and a singer by night. He graduated in 2008 from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, and then made the big leap to NYC where he completed his surgical residency in periodontics at Columbia University in 2011. He now practices at the Group Health Dental Facility in Manhattan, and Pasha Dental in Park Slope.
When he isn't performing surgery, Dr. Hashimoto has made appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show and American Idol Season 10, and has performed at many Manhattan venues. Currently he is the lead singer for The Shades, a Stevie Wonder cover band, and Rexford, an indie-pop band in NYC. Recently he won the year-long brutal Amateur Night competition at the Apollo Theater and is the Super Top Dog winner for 2012.
Dr. Hashimoto is very excited and extremely honored to be a part of Rock & Rawhide! He is sure that 2017 will be an amazing year for everyone involved!
