Meet Dr. Burtch

Monte L. Burtch, DDS

I find true fulfillment in helping people. When it comes to my patients’ dental health, I get the most satisfaction when helping them achieve optimal health and genuine happiness with a positive dental experience. I have enjoyed building meaningful, long-lasting relationships with my patients since 1990 and look forward to many more years to come.

Education and Continuing Education:

  • Undergraduate degree - Walla Walla University
  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery - Loma Linda University
  • Graduate, Mentor and Clinical Instructor at the KOIS Center

Continuing education enables me to provide better results for our patients by using state-of-the-art technology, techniques, materials, and equipment. The KOIS Center program motivates dentists to expand their knowledge and skills in all aspects of dentistry. In addition, I'm a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, a national organization for continued professional development, as well as the ADA (American Dental Association).
