Biography

Hi, I am Dr. Montague and I would like to welcome you to our dental practice. I am the owner of Word of Mouth Dentistry, as well as an art collector, curator, and musician. I began my dental career in 1987 as an associate and opened Word of Mouth Dentistry in 1992. Besides my work in the clinic, I also headed the Communication and Public Education Committee for the Ontario Dental Association, which included the production of a national awareness campaign about dental health. I find it important to focus on the long-term and overall dental health of my patients. This is why I have continued my education to stay up with the latest techniques and technology. It also motivated me to appear in several magazines and journals to promote dental health such as, Health Update with Dr. Karl Kabasele (CityTV), Diagnosis MD (OLN), The New Music (MuchMusic), MTV Live (MTV Canada), The Stephen and Chris Show (CBC), My Job Rocks (WINHD) and This is Daniel Cook (Treehouse). In my spare time, I am an avid art collector, curator and founder of Wedge Curatorial Projects. This is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting contemporary art exploring black identity. Over the past decade, we have produced many exhibitions, projects and community workshops and several of our works are exhibited in the clinic, giving it a unique vibe you can’t find anywhere else in Toronto.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I have over 20 years of experience as owner and principal dentist at Word of Mouth Dentistry and I have been voted "Best Dentist" by NOW Readers several times over the years. Plus: we have the best music!

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

1. Cosmetic improvement of chipped/stained/worn down teeth through direct bonding (white fillings done in the dentist chair). 2. Invisalign - straightening of teeth without braces. 3. Reduction / elimination of cold sores and canker sores with a proven laser treatment.

What are you proud of in your practice?

Our practice has, since its inception in 1992, grown from an initial staff of three to a dedicated team of twenty. Several of my patients include local and international entertainers and visiting celebrities. I really value the feedback we have received of our patients, and I am honoured that NOW Magazine readers have consistently nominated and voted our clinic as one of the best in Toronto.

    The dentist was really nice. He came in and shook my hand. I thought the hygienist was the dentist for the bit because she was cleaning my teeth and did an amazing job. She was thorough cleaning my teeth but sensitive. I have sensitive teeth and receding gums and she flossed my teeth and made it feel like a gum massage. Great experience. convenient location right at bathurst and bloor. Good stuff.

  • So pleasant and better than any other dentist I have been to!
    Reviewed on April 24th, 2018  •  Verified patient
    My hygienist at Dr. Montague's office was so lovely. She went through my entire medical history before we started, which really showed her commitment and level of care for her patient. We had a long conversation and she asked many questions about my concerns in not just my dental health but my overall health as well. She gave me lots of tips, and unlike other dentists I have been to in the past, did not create any over-the-top urgency or panic for my dental issues (of which I have a few). I am really excited to be a patient of Dr. Montague, as I had such a positive and pleasant first-time experience - everyone (including the receptionist) was so friendly, and laid-back yet professional. Amazing!

    I hadn't been to a dentist in at least a decade, so it was great to not be faced with any judgement or criticism during my cleaning. I'm a little bit disappointed that they could only get half of my mouth done, but maybe that is typical with first-time-in-a-long-time visits.

    I went in for my first appointment with Dr.Kenneth, they checked my teeth and did all the xrays which took some time however they ensured I was comfortable and kept me entertained during the examination process. Dr.Kenneth showed me pictures of my teeth and my dental file then discussed dental plans and my dental situation. The office is very artistic and full of paintings and portrait photography. The receiptionists were very helpful and submitted my claim for me online at the end of my appointment.

    Dr. Montague's office is warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in. His office is filled with beautiful art and plays great music that makes you feel like you're in your own living room. His staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and I barely felt like it was a dentist office at all. The hygenist was able to immediately identify problem areas and although I experience gum sensitivity, her cleaning was completely comfortable and painless! I will continue to see Dr. Montague and his staff for all of my dental needs.

    Reviewed on June 13th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    I loved the atmosphere of Dr. Montague's office. It was filled with contemporary African/Canadian/Jamaican art. The reggae music calmed by anxiety. My appointment started later than anticipated (by 15 minutes or so) but it was a Saturday appointment so I didn't mind. My hygienist was lovely and Dr. Montague himself is extremely kind and reassuring. I required emergency dental surgery, but they referred me to a colleague and I felt accommodated and prioritized. Beware, though: Dr. Montague will ask to take your picture before you leave for their file! 10/10 would recommend.
