Dr. Becker and Dr. Catalano are dentists in Oakland with over 50 years combined experience in the field!

Our Doctors’ Philosophies

Dr. Becker and Dr. Catalano have established a reputation among the Bay Area community. They have over 50 years of combined experience in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Our Oakland dentists believe in providing the finest dental care available to ensure your health and smile are nothing short of extraordinary.

Dr. Becker started Montclair Smile Design as a family-oriented, general dental practice with a strong focus on cosmetic dentistry. Her commitment to excellence and educating her patients has earned her the reputation throughout the community as being the expert dentist in cosmetic and general dentistry. It doesn't end there: Dr. Becker tirelessly strives to expand her education and skills by attending prestigious seminars and hands-on courses, including advanced full mouth reconstruction programs, through the country's top dental leaders.

Dr. Catalano joined the Montclair Smile Design team in 2010 to expand our vision of providing dental excellence. Along with keeping your smile healthy, Dr. Catalano has spent the last 18 years focusing on esthetic dentistry to craft beautiful, unique smiles for his patients, matching their specific goals and needs. His ultimate goal is to not only provide the finest esthetic dentistry but to ensure all of his patients receive genuine care and are comfortable throughout the entire process.

What can you expect at your first appointment with our dentists in Oakland?

At the Beginning: You will sit down with either Dr. Anne Becker or Dr. Chris Catalano. They explain their dental philosophies of being very proactive with your dental care. In other words, they will do what it takes to make sure you keep your natural teeth for the rest of your life.

Comprehensive Exam: From there, our dentists will conduct a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, joints, muscles and smile. This includes using a tiny camera to snap photos of every single tooth, charting past restorations, chart your gum health, and conduct a bite analysis if needed.

Discussion: Dr. Becker or Dr. Catalano will visually show you any decay or worn out dentistry that’s progressing in your mouth. By showing you these photos, you can see for yourself any developing problems.

Treatment: The next phase is up to you. We believe conservative dentistry is the best way to preserve your natural teeth for a lifetime. You and our doctors will conduct a personalized treatment suited within your parameters to achieve your dream smile.
