Jonathan Montoya, DDS

Dr. Jonathan Montoya began his dental journey as a dental assistant at a pediatric dental office where he quickly realized: we are all kids at heart.

As a military child and son of two mental health care professionals, Dr. Montoya decided to dedicate his life to making the dental experience as minimally miserable as possible and, dare he say, enjoyable!

Dr. Montoya spent three years working closely with world-renowned dentist Gordon Christensen at CRA now known as Clinicians Report®. He spent years studying dental materials, assisting with material and dental science projects, and even attending all available advanced training for experienced dentists given through Practical Clinical Courses. This experience set the foundation to a powerful early career.

Dr. Montoya started his college career at Utah Valley University studying Business Management, and he went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, which is considered to be one of the top three dental schools in the world.

Post-dental school, Dr. Montoya launched his career in an extremely busy corporate clinic in southern Chicago. He averaged doing the same procedures in a month that most dentists complete in a whole year! Dr. Montoya’s wife decided she wanted to further advance her career in orthodontics and got the news she was accepted to UF College of Dentistry.

As part of his post-dental school training, Dr. Montoya invested nearly all his income into receiving the most prestigious and advanced training in cosmetic and implant dentistry. Dr. Montoya is now a Fellow of the International Congress of Implantology, an Implant Pathways Fellow, a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, an Accredited Member of the Academy of Facial Esthetics, and a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

He recently also completed advanced training for oral and IV sedation from the world-renowned Stanley Malamed and Ken Reed. Dr. Montoya has rehabilitated over 300 wonderful patient smiles and is currently a Roving Implant Specialist for several dental offices around the state of Florida. In 2023, he will complete his advanced training in Biologic Bone Augmentation in Frankfurt, Germany, as well as more training in IV sedation at ASAASD.

When Dr. Montoya isn’t doing dentistry or dental-related training, you can find him doing other dental-related philanthropic work (he’s a dental nerd). Dr. Montoya is a Clinical Adjunct Professor at the UF College of Dentistry, where he teaches general dentistry and volunteers at the Freedom Clinic in Ocala offering community members free dentistry from the students via his supervision.

Other than anything actually dental-related, Dr. Montoya has a wonderful wife and two sons (Jett and Jaden). He enjoys spending time with them, as well as going camping, playing soccer, free diving, and traveling. If Dr. Montoya looks vaguely familiar, it’s because he appeared on America’s Got Talent in 2015 as a singer…he ultimately had to choose between being a dentist or a professional musician!

Rose Johnson, DDS

Dr. Rose Johnson spends a bit of every day simply being thankful. Part of this is being thankful that her profession is her passion. Dr. Rose and her husband (and fellow dentist) are self-proclaimed dental nerds. They love what they do and it shows every day with every patient interaction. They met in dental school and welcomed their first baby girl this January! 

Dr. Rose is now continuing her education at the University of Florida and will soon earn a Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry. 

Dr. Rose grew up in Arizona. After graduating from college in Flagstaff, she moved to Denver to study dentistry. After earning her DDS, they moved to sunny Jacksonville where she joined our dental office. Outside of the office, she enjoys dining, traveling, and the outdoors.
