Dr. Montoya Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Montoya Jr "Dr. Edward Montoya attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, and received his DMD degree in 2007. He served 5 years in the United States Army where he obtained advanced training in complex restorative dentistry. He is well versed in diagnosis, treatment planning, and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients. Serving stateside, as well as overseas as soldier dentist in Afghanistan, Dr. Montoya was exposed to the latest technological advancements and continuing education. During his deployment, he was presented with many opportunities to treat a wide variety of dental conditions with a focus on emergency care. Dr. Montoya is a unique kind of dentist. He takes a gentle approach, easing any concerns you might have by providing valuable patient education. He listens so he can best understand your particular needs. Then, he strives to provide the highest standard of personalized dental care using his skilled training in the latest advances in dental technology. Becoming a dentist was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for Dr. Montoya. His compassion for people and his desire to care for them led him to dentistry where he has the ability to make people feel better about themselves by creating more beautiful and healthier smiles. Dr. Montoya is enthusiastic about both the artistic and scientific elements of dentistry. Dr. Montoya met his partner and wife, Dr. Jennifer Kang, in dental school. Family brought Dr. Montoya to his wife's home state of California and he was blessed with the opportunity to practice in the beautiful Central Coast. The wonderful weather and beautiful countryside were the initial attractions of this "hidden gem" of California. However, it was the warm people and pervading sense of community which led the Montoyas to want to settle and raise a family in the area. When he is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Montoya enjoys running, road and mountain biking and tinkering with his classic Ford Bronco. Most of all, he values spending time with his wife Jenn, his son Matthew, and dogs. He looks forwards to bringing out the full beauty of your smile. "
