Luis A. Matos, DMD

Offering superior care as a board-certified pediatric dentist in Stuart, FL.

Dr. Luis A. Matos, one of our dentists in Stuart, FL, outdoors with an airplane in the background

Dr. Luis A. Matos was born in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico, but moved to Salem, MA at the age of five. Now practicing dentistry in Florida, Dr. Matos is a happily married man and proud father of two wonderful boys.

While studying at Boston University, Dr. Matos enlisted in the Massachusetts Army National Guard, where he served as a combat medical specialist (EMT). In time, he joined the Air Force and moved to Valdosta, GA.

His dentistry venture started when Dr. Matos had to rush his wife to the dentist because of a severe toothache. Watching how the doctors helped her get rid of her pain was an “eye-opening” experience. It was right there and then that he decided it was time to follow his new passion for dentistry.

While at dental school, it was no surprise for Dr. Matos to discover that working with children was his true calling – after all, he is a big kid at heart!

Dr. Matos is not only a great Stuart pediatric dentist…Learn more about our dental services…; he is a compassionate friend to all his young patients. He might act like a kid (and have tons of fun!), but he is an absolute professional whenever he treats your child.

Outside of the office, Dr. Matos is a family man. He loves spending time with his sons and their dog, Nacho. Together they enjoy outdoor activities like sailing, biking, running, and archery.

So where do I start!? The moment I walked in the door everyone was so pleasant! They were very punctual… the huge is we... had was Erica… she was so good with my daughter making her laugh through the entire X-ray procedure and cleaning. She was very very thorough and attentive to the problematic areas without making my daughter flinch! The dentist, Dr. Matos came in ready. He’s reviewed the X-rays and has communicated with me thoroughly and plainly so I understood everything! My daughter and he shared a few cackles and explained a plan of action for a couple of areas and I was relieved to see an actual caring doctor who I felt took their time to make sure she and I was comfortable with everything. Finally at the end of the appointment I was checked out with this bubbly lady named Liz. She made sure my future appointments were set and I was notified of any charges I would have to pay in the future procedures which are reasonable. Her nails were super cute too! (Just had to throw that in there).I’m eternally grateful we were able to experience this office and will continue to recommended them wholeheartedly.read more

This office was recommended to us by our daughters' pediatrician. I can't say enough about this place and the staff! It... is a welcoming atmosphere from the moment you walk in the door. The front desk staff is extremely helpful and polite, and the office is decorated in a way that will make your child feel comfortable. They have screens above the dental chair so that the kids can watch their favorite shows or movies while getting work done. My 4 year old daughter gets excited to go to the dentist, which was shocking to me. However when you come here, you will understand why. Melissa and Dr. Patel are fantastic with the kids and do such a great job. I'm so glad that we were recommended to go here. It is the Dentist you wish you had as a kid.read more

We've been twice and have great experiences both times. The staff is super friendly, Erica was my daughter's hygienist... and she was great with my 4 year old. They get you in and out quickly and try to help your little one feel at ease, the in room TVs make a nervous experience fun. They happily answer questions and give tips. I plan on continuing here until my daughter ages out.read more

My kids always love going to the dentist! Dr Matos and his team are so incredibly patient and gentle, it makes visits... such a pleasure. Even my 2 year old sits in the chair and enjoys his cleanings. I’m so thankful my kids get to have a positive experience at a pediatric dental office that makes visits fun and enjoyable compared to dreading dentist visits when I was a kid!read more

My 4 year old saw Yoana and Dr. Matos last week. Yoana is incredibly friendly and spoke directly to my daughter,... explaining the entire process.My daughter had a scary experience last time at a different dental office (not associated with this place), so she was pretty nervous. Yoana put her right at ease and my daughter opened her mouth and had the gentle cleaning done without issue.Dentist is also friendly, spoke directly to my daughter, and took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. (Some dentists completely ignore child patients and will only speak to the parent. I teach my children to be active and vocal in their medical care, so this is a huge positive for us)Front desk staff is also wonderful. Thank you!!read more

Most recent visit: This office is still great, my youngest needed outpatient to crown her molars but unfortunately it... was very hard to get in. A few months went by and we continued going to regular check ups. My youngest was doing good very well so Dr. Patel decided to go ahead and try the procedures in office. They are very serious about not having dental visits be traumatic experience. The day of our appointment my daughter let the dentist know which tooth was bothering her the most based on how bad the tooth got it had to come out. I could tell the doctor really cared and hated that it had to come to extraction without being out under. My daughter did cry but she also hugged the dentist after. For the last 2 teeth my youngest needs done I chose their option for sedation in office to complete the treatment plan. I’m grateful for the treatment options and the caring staff.Past Visit: This office is wonderful. The office is clean and has a great play area for the kids. One of my kids was traumatized at another dental office and after coming here she is no longer afraid. My oldest daughter asks which office we are going to because she doesn’t want to return to the old place they used to go. Here my kids fight about who gets to sit in the chair first. The staff is kind and patient.read more
