Cosmetic and General Dentist
“Taking care of my patients and their family’s dental needs is my passion. Your smile is important to me and I want to make sure it is healthy. In addition to oral health, I believe that everyone deserves a smile they can be proud of. I have extensive experience in cosmetic dentistry, and have spent the last 18 years focusing on esthetic dentistry, especially smile makeovers and complex dental care. Listening to my patient’s specific goals and transforming their smiles to match these goals is what I do best. The genuine care and comfort of my patients is of utmost importance to me. I pledge to provide the finest esthetic dental care available in the world right here in Montclair.”
Chris Catalano, D.D.S. graduated with honors from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 1991. Upon graduation, Dr. Catalano was appointed a faculty member at the University. Shortly after, he moved to San Diego where he practiced dentistry in San Diego for 13 years. During this time, Dr. Catalano focused his practice on esthetic dentistry as an associate of renowned cosmetic dental educator Dr. David Hornbrook. This invaluable apprenticeship allowed Dr. Catalano to learn the artistic side of dentistry blended with the advanced technology of modern dentistry from one of dentistry’s masters. In 2007, Dr. Catalano was voted as one of San Diego’s best dentists by his peers in San Diego Magazine.
Dr. Catalano has served as an instructor in the Hornbrook Group live patient post graduate education program instructing dentists throughout the country on how to accomplish extreme cosmetic dental makeovers. He has also been active in the evaluation of new dental products, materials and technology with several dental manufacturers. He brings with him knowledge of complex cosmetic reconstructive dental care, use of lasers in dentistry, migraine headache prevention and treatment, as well as complex implant rehabilitation.
He recently moved back to the Bay Area and is proud to be practicing in Dr. Anne Becker’s Montclair Smile Design. He is also a part time faculty instructor at the University of the Pacific Art Dugoni School of Dentistry where he continues to follow his passion for education.
