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. “
