Meet the Team
Dr. Phillip Montoya
Dr. Montoya loves helping patients improve both their oral health and self-esteem through their smiles. He was born and raised in Salem, MO, and attended the College of the Ozarks for undergrad, followed by the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery. He continued his education after that with advanced training in Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Dentistry.
Dr. Montoya lives in Lee’s Summit with his loving wife, two daughters, and two dogs. When he’s not in the office taking care of his patients, he loves going to Royals games, Chiefs games, concerts, traveling and exploring new places with his family.
Meet Our Hygienists
Registered Dental Hygienist
Shelley was born and raised in Independence, MO, and is a 1982 graduate of Truman High School. She attended the UMKC School of Dentistry, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene and the Rinehart Foundation Award for Best Clinician of Dental Hygiene in her graduating class.
Shelley has worked in this office for more than 31 years, and loves the relationships she has built with her patients. The connections she has made caring for her patients keep her motivated to be the best hygienist she can be.
She also loves to spend time with her family and friends, and getting away for weekend outings with her husband. She’s very proud that her daughter will soon be graduating from the UMKC School of Dentistry, after which she’ll be serving as an Air Force Dentist. She’s equally proud of her son, a freshman at the University of Missouri, where he’s studying to become an Electrical Engineer.
