Special Professional Interests

At the age of 5, Dr. Montes wanted to be a physician like his uncle. It was at the age of 11, when going to the orthodontist, that he decided to become a dentist. While in dental school, he began noticing the impact a dentist can make in a patient’s life. He wanted to learn more ad decided to specialize in prosthodontics so he could understand his patients needs better and help them.

The doctor was very kind and courteous but extremely rehearsed. He discounted when some options that I wanted deviated from what could be delivered at this practice. It would instill trust to discuss all options with me even if they cannot be performed there. I am looking for a professional opinion regardless of whether or not you sell the service. Stay current on what is happening in your industry. The internet provides a wealth of information for patients.
