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 more

Practice Administrator

Monica has been married to our caring pediatric dentist (Dr. Matos) for more than 18 years! Together they have two very active boys whom she loves spending time with.

After working for many years in the corporate field, Monica wanted to have the flexibility to raise her kids while still having a career she enjoyed. Right about that time, her husband opened his dental practice and needed an office manager (what great timing). He asked for her help, and the rest is history!

Monica takes real pride in helping children get the best dental care possible. At the same time, she works hard to make the whole experience convenient and seamless for parents.

When Monica isn’t working, she loves being active with her Boy and Cub Scouts! If stuck indoors, she likes eating cheese and crackers while unwinding with a nice glass of wine (or two!).

No one enjoys a good challenge more than Sara. After spending most of her career in the medical field, she moved into dentistry and fully embraced her new career.

This new path is a perfect fit as Sara is a real people person who loves helping kids and their families enjoy a positive dental experience. Her compassionate and sensitive personality helps children relax and puts parents at ease too.

Outside of the office, Sara loves to spend time with her family and friends. She also enjoys reading, playing volleyball, and kayaking. One day, she plans on traveling across the country in an R.V.

Patient Coordinator

I am proud to say I was born and raised in Cuba since 1989. I moved to Florida at the age of 10 with my loving mother. We moved to the beautiful city of Jensen Beach mid-2021. I love spending time with friends and family. I enjoy vacations, holidays, birthdays and skydiving.

Why did you choose dentistry?
Dentistry really choose me. I found myself with a couple toothaches, which was not a pleasant experience, and decided to learn and educate everyone on the importance of oral hygiene. In 2017 I joined and graduated from The Dental Assisting Academy of the Palm Beaches achieving my Expanded Functions Dental Assisting Certificate. I started my career as a dental assistant, and eventually learned other fields in the industry, eventually becoming a patient coordinator which I enjoy very much.

Dental Assistant

Born and raised in Stuart, FL, Erica is married and has two children, a boy and a girl. They all love to spend time together as a family, especially when going on adventures.

As a kid, Erica suffered a severe toothache from eating too much candy (we feel your pain)! Her childhood dental experience was so bad that it inspired her to choose a career in dentistry. Why? She not only wanted every child to achieve a happy and healthy smile (that no candy could spoil), but to have a positive experience too!

Being a dental assistant has allowed Erica to help children learn good oral habits while gaining a positive view of dentistry.

In her free time, Erica is an avid kickball player who loves to hang out and celebrate special evenings with her family.

Estefania is a true Florida girl, she loves spending time at the beach and hanging out with friends. Estefania loves to visit her family’s ranch in Mexico and considers shopping her number one hobby!
