Like many people, I’d had some bad experience with dentists. But when my daughters started asking me why they had to go to a dentist and I didn’t, I knew it was time to start looking again. A co-worker had repeatedly told me how wonderful Dr. Montaser is, so I figured I’d given her a try. I’m so glad I did. That was over two years ago, and I couldn’t be happier! Part of my fear of going to a dentist was how many years it had been since I had last seen a dentist. Previous dentists have given me a hard time for my lapses, which only makes going back that much harder! Dr. Montaser just made a note of it, and we moved on to fix all of the problems that time and lack of care had caused. No guilt trip, just suggestions for better care for the future. I really appreciate that. The other hurdle for me was discomfort. My previous dentist had given me a hard time when I got uncomfortable to the point where I couldn’t keep my fillings dry enough while they were setting/etc/etc. One of the best things about Dr. Montaser is that she always seems aware of my comfort level – without me having to say anything (I admit, I’m one that tries to tough it out more often than she should!). Breaks seem to come right when I need them! I’ve had a number of fillings replaced, and several crowns, and while those procedures are never exactly comfortable, she’s made them as comfortable as she can. And I really appreciate that! Everything else is just icing on the cake. I’m always seen in promptly, even when I’m early. She has worked to make the most of my annual limit on my insurance. She will often recommend trying a less intensive (and expensive) option (which has always worked) before going to something bigger. Despite the length of this review, I’m sure there’s something that I’ve missed. But long story short, I cannot recommend Dr. Montaser highly enough!
