I grew up in Los Angeles California, the second youngest of five siblings. I attended Long Beach State University where I received my undergraduate degree in Genetics with a minor degree in Spanish. I went on to pursue my dream of becoming a dentist and attended the University of California San Francisco where I received my degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery. Prior to establishing a family and cosmetic dentistry practice in Sacramento, I completed hundreds of hours in continuing education courses. I am dedicated to the newest advancements in cosmetic dentistry and keep up-to-date with the latest technologies. I am frequently among the first dentists to perfect and use the newer, more advanced techniques and equipment. More importantly I strive to be very soothing and put patients at ease.
When I am not practicing my passion of cosmetic dentistry I spend most of my time with my lovely wife (Dr. Denisse Montalvo) and two kids Noah Sol and Ella Luz. I am an avid mountain biker and love basketball.
“I would like every potential patient to know that our office excels in great service. We want every patient to rave about how professional, gentle and caring every member of our staff is.”
Dr. Montalvo is a dynamic dentist with over 11 years of experience. She is bilingual in English/Spanish and is dedicated to providing quality dentistry with a personal touch. She offers a variety of services, from creating beautiful smiles with cosmetic braces and crowns to treating grinding and migraines with Botox. Dr. Montalvo’s greatest achievement is creating great relationships with her patients and getting to know them on a personal level. She is caring, attentive, and a great communicator. She discusses and explains treatment options so that patients can choose a plan that best fits their needs. She makes patients feel comfortable with her gentle and friendly manner and offers sedation for her more nervous patients.
Dr. Montalvo participates in continuation courses to stay updated on the latest procedures and advances in technology. She has strong ethics and believes in providing compassionate and comprehensive dental care.
I received my Bachelor’s of Science from Loyola University of Chicago, and my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. Dentistry has been my passion since 2006, when I first worked in a dental office during college. Besides dentistry, I also have a strong interest in the field of aesthetic medicine, which I believe has the power to dramatically improve one’s self-perception and overall well-being. When I am not in the office, I am passionate about maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle with lots of exercise!
“My approach to dentistry is to put myself in the shoes of the patient, and I believe that the things that are important to you should be just as important to me. I will advocate for your oral health as if it were my own, and you can expect my undivided attention to every detail of your dental needs.”
