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.

I had a lot of anxiety going in. The doctor and staff were very helpful in alleviating my anxiety while giving me what seems to be some hard truths - which is information that I needed to know.

Prior to my treatment with Dr. Montes I had four consults with other prosthodontics which I left feeling unsure and determined to keep looking for a professional I felt comfortable with. During my time working with Dr. Montes he listened and consulted me regarding my treatment plan and provided excellent care. My temporary crowns were just placed and I am so thankful to have received treatment from The Dental Specialists. I cannot recommend Dr. Montes enough.

Dr. Montes' word is Gospel to me. I completely trust his assessment, treatment plan and valued my concerns and anxiety about treatment options. He has never given me the impression that my feelings and opinions are not important. His expertise, experience and confidence in his knowledge and skills is exceptional. He is deliberate in assessment and calm and comforting in his care and treatment of my conditions.
