Cannot say enough about Dr Matheny and his amazing staff. I have been going here for many years and always have a wonderful experience! Everyone here is so professional, helpful and pleasant. Today was just a cleaning , but another great experience! Kitty did my cleaning and went above and beyond to make me feel at ease and comfortable! We had a nice chat! MerryChristmas Dr Matheny and your staff! Happy New year!

I went in for the first cleaning I’ve had since I was about 8 years old. Note I brush floss ect every day. I was always scared to go because I thought they were going to find all these problems and I would be in pain so on and so forth. But I honestly have to say that is the best experience I’ve ever had and it wasn’t expensive without insurance. I do need to come back for fillings and deep cleaning but I am very happy and I can smile without all the gunk on my teeth! And the staff is so friendly and really make it feel better to be there and comfortable. Thank you so much to everyone for helping me get past my fear!

I have been a patient at St. Lucie Center for Cosmetic Dentistry for over 7 years. I cannot say enough about the quality of Dr. Matheny’s work as well as his great personality… I always look forward to my visits (yes, to the dentist!). The staff is also very friendly and they do a great job as well. My smile thanks you too!

Ellen G. from Stuart, FL (Source: Yelp)


I am so impressed with Dr. Matheny and his staff. The staff is friendly, professional and very helpful. Dr. Matheny is very clear and informative about the work he’d like to perform, explaining it and also giving other options. He takes his time in talking with you (never rushed) and working on you. He is very friendly, and he really loves his work.

For many years I struggled with extreme fear of dentists due to poor experiences when I was a young adult. Finally decided I would face my fear. My daughter highly recommended this office. When I arrived for my first appointment I was very nervous, hands sweating whole nine yards. They took me back and my stomach sunk. I was in need of a good teeth cleaning, but for many years due to irrational fear I avoided this. As soon as the tech went to work on my mouth I instantly felt my fear slipping away. The care and compassion, along with gentle touch of this staff is amazing! I know many people struggle with this, and unfortunately we end up waiting at the expense of our teeth. Dr. Matheny and his staff are outstanding, and just perfect for you if you struggled like I did!

AMAZING!!! Dr. Matheny and staff are excellent at what they do. Great office, service, & hospitality above and beyond what I expected! They have spectacular work ethic and knowledge. You can tell they genuinely care and put the patient needs first. A+ for St. Lucie center for Cosmetic dentistry for making my smile magnificent!!!!!

I am new in town and feel so lucky to have found Dr. Matheny. He is conservative, has a calm demeanor, explains things thoroughly, prioritizes patients’ comfort during procedures, and, most important to me, does great work. His staff is courteous and pleasant. I have found my new dentist… Thank you, Dr. Matheny!

Going to see Dr Matheny for my dental emergency care was the best decision for me. I was seen same day and Dr Matheny was very professional. He gave me options, explained how he would proceed in the care I need before starting as well as provide after care instructions – the results were exactly as he instructed. Dr Matheny restored my trust in dentist as I could not believe that I was actually looking forward to going back for my follow up dentist appointment!!! Giving a 5 star rating to Dr Matheny is truly coming from a place where I had lost confidence and became extremely wary of dentists. I had a horrible experience with another dentist where my face became swollen and disfigured and I was suffering excruciating pain. I found Dr Matheny’s office online and was able to get immediate help!!! I highly commend and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr Matheny as the very best dentist!!! His staff members give excellent care especially Laura, office manager, and Kristy who go over and beyond. Excellency is the norm in Dr Matheny’s dental care and office environment!!

Absolutely highly recommend Dr Matheny for all your dental care. Not only is he kind he is compassionate about helping his patients, He really takes the time to explain everything. He is affordable and his office is very conveniently located in PSL near city hall. The front office staff is efficient and goes over all the insurance information thoroughly. Always a pleasure going going there. Excellent office & Staff!

I’ve been a patient of Dr Matheny’s in Port Saint Lucie for 18 years. I won’t go anywhere else. He is patient, knowledgeable, kind and always learning new technology and skills to help his patients to the best of his ability. The staff is friendly and helpful. I love my dentists office. I don’t ever hear any people saying that!

After leaving the Philadelphia area with the best dental care ever and a couple not so good dental teams in PSL, I was a little dismayed. A friend gave me an awesome referral (and a gift card) and I have found the most exceptional dental care on this side of heaven! Superior skills, excellence in customer service, professionalism, and courtesy in every detail of the business AND in every employee at St. Lucie Center for Cosmetic Dentistry!

Hands down the best dentist I’ve been too. I use to walk into dentist office crying and Dr. Matheny and his staff make you feel comfortable and make sure you’re feeling great. They always fully explain what is going on and you’re never surprised with things. On top of that he is one of the most reasonably priced dentist I’ve seen. Would recommend everyone to go to him.

Dr Matheny is awesome! He and his staff is very professional and friendly. I am a big baby when it comes to dental work and everyone tried to make me feel relaxed and talk me through having my broken molar pulled. I highly recommend this dental practice. I will be going back for regular cleanings and additional work in the very near future!

I have been Dr. Matheny’s patient for 20 years and have received the best care at this office ever. The complete staff from office to hygienist to assistants do a wonderful job of making your experience the best it can be. Dr. Matheny uses the most up to date procedures for a kind and caring appointment. Thank you I have had so many bad experiences with other Dentists this is so not the care with this office.

I have been going to Dr. Matheny since August of this year. I finally had my chance to get my teeth fixed after a long time of pain and embarressment. I began my search here on google because I wanted to make sure any doctor that I seen and his staff were not going to make jokes about how bad my teeth were. I have had many experiences where that was just the case. I can tell you I do not regret my decision. Every single person that works in this office is kind and respectful and will go out of their way to help you accomplish just what you want with your teeth. For too many years I was ashamed to smile so when i went looking for before pictures I had a hard time finding one so its cropped and weird, but you can see just how bad my teeth actually were. In just as little as 4 months Dr. Matheny and his staff have changed my life. I can smile now and not be ashamed. If you are looking for dental work done weather your ashamed of your teeth or not, St. Lucie for Cosmetic Dentistry is the way to go. Here is before and after pictures to show you just how great this place truly is. Thank you again to everyone at this office. I really can’t thank you enough for how your work and your kindness has changed my life forever.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Matheny and the St. Lucie Center for Cosmetic Dentistry for many years now. Before my aunt referred me to him, I neglected my teeth due to bad experiences and anxiety in general. Dr. Matheny’s kindness, and the compassion of his staff, helped me to overcome my anxiety and get on top of looking after my dental health. They’ve always worked with me as best they could to afford taking care of my smile. If you’re at all afraid of the dentist or you need a lot of work, this is the place for you. Dr. Matheny is the friendliest guy, not at all judgmental about your teeth, and totally understands how to help an anxious patient overcome their fear of dental care. I even trust him to do fillings without needing any numbing now! Ten out of ten stars. -Jason LaFlair, Port St. Lucie

I haven’t been to a dentist in about ten years and was afraid to find out about my dental health. I don’t know why I waited for so long. The staff have been great. Dr. Matheny was nice and took the time to answer any questions I had rather than dismissing me like I was wasting his time like most other doctor’s do. They are getting me on track to having a healthy smile again.

I had a very traumatic experience with a previous dentist that left me with permanent nerve damage. I gave him my medical records and explain to him my history. I was terrified. He was kind and compassionate and came up with a treatment plan. He is gentle, thorough and explain every step as he goes. It is very reassuring to feel like I am in good hands when I’m there. Every single staff member is kind and helpful. Thank you for helping me smile again!

Caring and highly competent, Dr. Matheney and his staff will put you at ease instantly. The doctor takes the time to truly understand what’s going on and fix issues. His first concern is your comfort – helping you get out of pain and to return to normal tooth functioning, no matter what it takes. The staff is friendly, understanding and accommodating with emergencies. They have earned my trust. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Michelle T. from Port St. Lucie, FL (Source: Yelp)


After a horrible experience years ago that left me with permanent dental cement compressing my TMJ nerve I haven’t been to dentist in years. Dr. Matheny and his staff understand how traumatizing that situation was for me and they’re always so patient, kind and understanding. Doctor Matheny explains everything to you and is very thorough. He takes his time and comes up with a plan that works out best for you. He still has passion and love for his profession and it shows. I’ve come a long way from crying and hyperventilating when I hit the door to laughing and waving when I leave. That is a testament of how well of a dentist he is, how comfortable he makes you feel and how wonderful his staff is. Thank you for helping me smile again!

They care about their patients all while providing absolutely fabulous dental work. I highly recommend this dental practice. I feel very forunate that I am a patient of this practice.

What can I say… Jackie is magnificent and always treated with the best of service. I’ve been a patient for years, very professional and also add that personal touch to make you feel comfortable. I was extremely pleased with the entire service and the visit. I will recommend this dentist 100 percent with confidence to anyone that has not had a good experience, and are looking for a new dentist to keep for a lifetime.

Christian Pack (Source: Google)


I got to say I’ve never experienced such great customer service . Jackie was incredibly kind and easy to talk with. Last week I had a scheduled cleaning but I couldn’t make it because some personal issues had came up. I called to have it rescheduled and switched for a later date in December and there wasn’t any issue!! Thank you again, I definitely recommend going here and scheduling through Jackie if possible!!

Dr Matheny is a great example of what a dentist should be. He takes extra time to ensure your comfort and education; even for a standard cleaning. His office is impeccably clean and works with a great team, from the Front Desk on. The girls on the front desk are the first point of contact when a patient, especially a new patient walks in. They are all doing a great job. Another plus is the affordability of his dental procedures. Highly recommend this office to all. If you’re looking for a dentist who is highly skilled, office staff that is accommodating, friendly and an office that’s affordable then they are for you.
5 stars from me !

Dr.Matheny, Mrs. Laura and staff are wonderful. Their service is outstanding and they help you feel at home. The environment is inviting and pleasant. You enter as a customer and leave as a friend. Try them out. Dentist offices make me feel nervous. In their office your nervous feelings come to an end. Five star service. Respectfully, Evelyn

Very honest about the procedures and knowledgeable about what needs to be done. If he can’t do the procedure you need, he will not only refer you to a specialist, but he will schedule the appointment for you. I appreciate that I have an immediate need, hence reason for visit, but that Dr. Matheny focused on my overall oral health, while addressing the specific reason for my visit. The Google reviews got me there and they live up to their rating! Might I add the office is very aesthetically pleasing! It feels like I’m on vacation on a far off tropical island when I visit!

Love this Office. Dr Matheny is wonderful. The girls in the office are very nice and personal. Love Laura and Cindy, feel like I’ve known them forever. Really nice to talk to. Office is nice and clean, decor is nautical, beautiful. From the time you walk in, you speak to the girl up front, to the time you see the Dr. nothing but a Great Experience. Highly Recommended.

I’m new to the Area – I spent a couple hours looking at all the reviews of local dentist and was afraid I wouldn’t find a decent one. Then I found one! The name scared me at first, thinking it was a specialist, but they do normal dental work and do it well!. I called and had an appointment shortly after. I needed form additional work (I already knew I did) and they scheduled that the very next week. They work around my hours and are super friendly. I also have a military dentist who just checked my teeth and he said he’s already seeing some improvement. This staff has been very professional and friendly. It feels really good to get a good dentist. It’s been a long time since I had someone I can trust and feel good about. I would and already have recommended St. Lucie Center for Cosmetic Dentistry to my friends and family.

I have been a patient of Dr Matheny for over 20 years. He is the most genuine, kind, and caring doctor I have ever met! He always ensures you are comfortable and spends time with you before starting any work! His staff is just as wonderful! They are so accommodating and understanding! Definitely the best dentist on the Treasure Coast!

Dr Matheny was recommended to me. He is a listener. In this case a crown was required. He has done an excellent job explaining the procedure, deciding on the type of crown, and setting the color of the crown. Noted especially was the time taken to ensure the crown matched the bite between the upper and lower jaw. That was very important to me. Good job done! Will recommend him to friends and neighbors!

THE BEST I have been going there for over 10yr and his dignity is everything he will never lie to you and always let you know upfront what is going on he will never make you feel obligated. He is the most honest and experience dentist that I know. Great Job If you are afraid of dentist he is defenantly the one for you.

Dr. Matheny and his staff are exceptional. I have been going to his dental practice for over 9 years. All of his team are competent and perform excellent dental work. His entire staff go over and beyond what is expected. Dr. Matheny stays behind his quality work. and takes great pride in his work.
