Meet The Team
At American Dental Excellence, we’re all about teeth. Well, not just any teeth – your teeth. And your gums. And your overall oral health. In fact, we’re pretty much nerds when it comes to dental healthcare and we’re pretty darned proud of that. We believe that it is this passion for dentistry, in all of its forms, that drives us to maintain our high levels of customer care and procedural excellence in all that we do. Led by Dr. John Montoya, our staff has exemplified expertise in dentistry, delivering a level of patient care that is rarely seen in the industry. We’re just dedicated to delivering compassionate, caring, exemplary service. And it shows.
