Matthew Hernandez


Matthew has skillfully opened/developed 35 dental practices in both Texas and Washington state, 5 dental laboratories and was Chief Business Development Officer for Paramount Med spas in Houston, Texas and has successfully lead Seraph Dental Management into managing over $40 Million worth of assets and personnel since 2009.

He is trained in all aspects of the dental industry including highly complex multi-group practice management and comprehensive dental treatment planning. Matthew was trained by over 80 years of family knowledge in the art of multi-disciplinary comprehensive patient care and practice management in a variety of demographics. Being surrounded by a family deeply rooted in all aspects of the dental industry and a 3rd generation dental provider, Matthew has a firm belief for patient care and service to others.

Starting in Texas, Part of his obligations were to contract with top federal law attorneys such as Mr. Rick Moore JD of Norman, Oklahoma to be able to form statutes to include a dental training center for tribal dental practitioners and an oral health awareness group under IHS (Indian Health Services). Matthew was trained by the ITDA’s dental training center doctors as a tribal dental clinician via a 4 year on-site program, George Brown – School of Dental Health in Ontario, CA and advanced removable training as a Denturist at Bates Technical in Tacoma, WA.

In Washington State, at the age of 16 Matthew began orchestrating the consolidation of dental services in a single dental practice. He became the Director of Operations then COO for Casablanca Dental Management which made him responsible for the following:

  • 28 full service dental practice start-ups including construction, staffing and management
  • 2 full service dental laboratory start-ups providing in-house/external lab services
  • Negotiated/Managed a state wide contract with Extendicare & Evergreen Healthcare corporations for providing 35 long-term and assisted living facilities (5800 patients in total) with full service mobile dental care located throughout the state of Washington.

Since before the pandemic, Matthew has been paving the way for remote start-up/management of dental practices utilizing strategic KPI’s unique to each practice/team/doctor while maintaining constant communication leveraging the latest video conferencing platforms. This strategy has proven to take practices with an EBITDA of 5-10% up as much as 51-54% over 2-4 years, especially in the Endodontic/Perio/Prostho sub-specialties of dentistry. The company’s goal has always been to empower the solo provider to do what they love which is dentistry and to minimize the day-to-day stresses of running the “business” of dentistry.

In his free time, Matthew enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife while being the “best dad in the world” to his 3 daughters. He love nature and is often found exploring new landscapes hiking, hunting, fishing and camping.
