David J. Wilcox, DMD

Dr. David Wilcox is dedicated to providing each one of his patients

with comprehensive and compassionate dental care, expertly tailored

to their needs, preferences, and wishes. Whether a patient needs

extensive restorative dentistry or whether a patient would simply

like to maintain their healthy smile for many years to come, Dr.

Wilcox is committed to providing everyone in his chair with a roadmap

to oral health that reflects both their dental history and their oral

health goals for the future.

Dr. Wilcox grew up on a farm in rural Western Pennsylvania. After

earning his degree in biology from the University of Montana, he

attended dental school at the University of Pittsburgh followed by an

intensive one­ year general practice residency at the University of

Nevada – Las Vegas. During his residency, he gained advanced training

in a wide range of procedures and specialties, including Family

Medicine, Anesthesiology, Conscious Sedation, and Emergency/Trauma.

In addition, he learned in detail how to closely and accurately

evaluate a patient’s total oral health needs and create a

comprehensive plan to meet those needs.

After starting his first dental practice in Nevada following his

residency, Dr. Wilcox returned to Missoula and opened Montana Dental

Arts. Outside of the office, Dr. Wilcox enjoys spending time with his

wife, Crista, and their three young children. He spends his free time

hunting, fishing, kayaking, and keeping up with Grizzly Football.

What Dr. Wilcox loves about his job: “I

love when a plan comes together. When treatment is complete and my

patient is comfortable and happy with their treatment results. It is

very gratifying to initiate maintenance on a patient and report that

their teeth and gums are in great condition! They do not need any

dental treatment at this time and I will see them for their next

evaluation in 6 months.”

What Dr. David Wilcox loves about Montana Dental

Arts: “I love when we can help a patient in need. When a

patient comes to me in pain and our treatment allows them to sleep,

eat and function comfortably. I love creating smiles. It’s great when

a tooth or teeth replacement options provides a patient with the

comfort, function, and smile they have been missing. “
