    Chamber Spotlight Shines on Dr. Matthew Cripe

    Dentist Matthew Cripe is among the proud Dowagiac graduates who returned to their hometown, following college graduation, to open their practice here.  This summer his career marks 29 years, as he now serves the two communities of Dowagiac and Niles.
     
    “Right out of school, I bought Dr. Neff’s practice,” Dr. Cripe said. There, they worked side by side for three years. Then, after 59 years in business, Dr. Neff retired in August 1993. 
     
    As Dr. Cripe looks back on those early years, he fondly recalls it was Dr. Neff and his father, who recommended he join the Chamber, which he did his very first day. In 1995 and 1996, Dr. Cripe went on to serve as president of the organization.
