I have a wife with whom I currently practice- Dr. Carol Montee. We live in Nashville, TN with our children Lauren (15), Ethan (7) and Miranda (5). Our practice is a comprehensive general practice that offers the majority of dental services. People always ask about working with your spouse and we seem to make it work and enjoy it. Carol loves orthodontics and spends most of her time pursuing that specialty. I tend to focus on the surgical aspect of dentistry offering IV conscious sedation, thirds, implants, grafting and sinus lifts. We both love to learn and believe in pursuing excellence in dentistry. In our off time we spend time traveling to California and Michigan to visit our families. Our kids keep us busy with sports,boyscouts and other activities. Although we do not push them in the dental direction, Ethan and Miranda both tell us weekly that they want to be dentists so we may have some new DDS mentoring members in a few years!
