Meet Our Doctors
“Seeing the transformation of my patients’ smiles and the new confidence in their eyes and smile is the most rewarding aspect of my career.” – Dr. Tahbaz
Dr. Tahbaz moved to the United States with his family at the age of two. Raised with a humble upbringing, his parents have instilled into him a strong work ethic and a belief that all goals can be achieved through dedication and hard work. This belief has stayed with him through all aspects of his career and personal life. While at dental school, Dr. Tahbaz realized what he enjoyed most was creating smiles and giving patients the confidence to smile.
His education has taught him that orthodontics is not only a science, but also a form of art. He attended the University of the Pacific Dental School for his dental degree and then went on to earn his certificate in orthodontics from Roseman University in Henderson, Nevada. Dr. Tahbaz is currently a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, an achievement earned by few orthodontists.
Dr. Tahbaz moved to Austin with his wife, Mona, and they are loving their new home and looking forward to learning more about the city and its great people. When away from the practice, Dr. Tahbaz enjoys working out, hiking, exploring new restaurants, table tennis, and spending time with friends and family.
Dr. Mona Rezapour believes that orthodontics is not only a science but also a form of art. She enjoys creating smiles and loves giving patients the confidence to smile. Her caring personality contributes to her success as being a top orthodontist.
Dr. Rezapour graduated with honors from University of Nevada School of Dental Medicine in 2009, where she discovered her passion for dentistry. She also completed a one-year postgraduate residency program at UCLA, which gave her the opportunity to continue her training by performing more difficult cases in the dental field. Soon after, she followed her dream to be an orthodontist by attending Roseman University’s orthodontic residency program.
Dr. Mona Rezapour’s undergraduate and graduate career have been adorned with countless accolades, awards, scholarships and memberships with professional organizations. She is a Board Certified Orthodontist, a member of American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association and Texas Dental Association. Dr. Rezapour is dedicated to the advancement of the orthodontic profession and technology.
When she is away from the practice, Dr. Mona enjoys spending time with her family and friends, spending time at the gym or nature running. She enjoys watching movies, trying different restaurants and traveling abroad.
Dr. Mona has lived in three different countries and three different states in the US. She is excited about living and starting a family in Austin and is looking forward to working with her husband, Dr. Amirali Tahbaz and the talented staff at LuvBraces.
Dr. Matt Lucero, known by Dr. Matt, grew up in Sparks, Nevada.

Teaching children became his passion and Dr. Matt choose to undergo further training to become a specialist in pediatric dentistry.
In 2015, Dr. Matt and his wife temporarily moved to Portland Oregon for two years so he could receive additional training at Oregon Health & Science University.
