Dentist Anesthesiologist – Richard Montandon, DDS
In order to provide the best in patient care, we often use a dental anesthesiologist for advanced anesthesia and pain management. Dr. Montandon works with Dr. Cullum to provide patients with a comfortable and safe surgical experience.
Dr. Richard Montandon was accepted into the Idaho Dental Education Program and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) through Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. Immediately following dental school, Dr. Montandon was introduced to dental anesthesiology through a one-year general practice residency at Indiana University. He then completed an additional four years of intensive anesthesia residency training, which included anesthesia care for a broad scope of medical and dental procedures.
Upon completion of his anesthesia residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), Dr. Montandon became an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh. During this time, he provided anesthesia care and trained dental anesthesia residents, student nurse anesthetists, and dental students. Dr. Montandon’s professional focus is primarily clinical dental anesthesiology; however, he has also been involved in lecturing, publishing articles, and other scholarly activities. Dr. Montandon is board certified through the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology and is a Fellow of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology.
Dr. Montandon is dedicated to increasing the availability of dental and oral and maxillofacial surgery services to patients that are unable to have their treatment completed without the use of sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. Montandon is committed to helping meet each patient’s needs in a safe and comfortable manner.
After being out of the Inland Northwest region of the country for 11 years, Dr. Montandon and his wife are happy to be back home. In his spare time, Dr. Montandon enjoys his family and friends and spending time in the great outdoors.
