After graduating from Boston University, Dr. Matos was accepted to the U.S. Air Force’s officer training school, which led to his commission as a lieutenant.

Dr. Matos met his wife, Monica, while they both completed their master’s degree at Valdosta State University. After four years in the Air Force and having obtained the rank of Captain, Dr. Matos separated from the military to attend The Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry. It was during his time in dental school that Dr. Matos realized his inclination toward working with children, so he decided to pursue a specialty in pediatric dentistry. He went on to complete a pediatric dentistry residency at Miami Children’s Hospital.
Training at Miami Children’s Hospital included; treating medically compromised and special needs children, acting as the dental advisor for their craniofacial clinic, and providing treatment to a vast array of children from multiple cultures and with a broad spectrum of diseases and conditions. Dr. Matos’ training prepared him well for the demanding work of private practice.

Four years after having graduated from dental school, Dr. Matos decided to branch out and begin his own practice; choosing the beautiful town of Stuart as his location.
