I love being able to schedule my whole family’s dental appointments together at River Oaks Dental. Dr. Monteiro is great with my kids and now they love going to the dentist!
I used to be terrified of the dentist, but Dr. Monteiro and her team are the most gentle people you will ever encounter! With sedation, Dr. Monteiro was able to fix my teeth and completely makeover my smile! Thank you Dr. Monteiro for my new smile! I love it!
Dr. Monteiro is very thorough and takes her time to explain procedures. She is very calming and makes going to the dentist an enjoyable experience.
