"A Smile 4 U From Both of Us"

Dr. Arocho & Dr. Matos - Dentist Charlotte NC

We have been married for over 25 years and God has blessed us with two amazing children (now young adults studying in University of NC-Charlotte). We love spending time with the family, traveling, reading, volunteering in the community every time we have the opportunity and our family is active in our church.

We have been enjoying all the years we have been working together as a team since we were in dental school. We will strive to provide you and your family the best possible dental care along with our staff.

We relocated from Puerto Rico in 2004 after having a successful practice in Fajardo, PR. We opened our doors in 2008 and we have such a great staff and patients that we love like family, we feel our office is our second home.
