Leticia Montes is a native Arizonian who grew up in Tucson, AZ. She attended the University of Arizona where she majored in Biology. Leticia supported herself while attending school as a dental assistant and front office receptionist. It was during this time that Leticia learned the importance of multi-tasking and mastered the ability to prioritize.
After college, Leticia traveled and lived abroad volunteering with religious and local organizations. This experience gave her the opportunity to perfect her Spanish and develop strong leadership and communication skills. Upon returning back to the United States, Leticia worked as an office manager in a new dental office where she created and implemented office policies and procedures and developed a growth plan that allowed the office to reach their desired benchmarks. She understands what it takes to run a successful dental practice.
Leticia later returned to school to pursue a degree in Dental Hygiene where once again had to manage a busy schedule – studying, working as dental assistant, and raising her son, Matthew. She also continued her volunteer work with organizations such as The American Heart Assoc., The Flying Samaritans, Freedom Day USA, and the Boy Scouts America. Leticia has excellent organizational and time-management skills, is very efficient and recognizes the importance of these skills in running a business.
Leticia has been a practicing dental hygienist since 1998. She practiced for ten years in Tucson before moving to Prescott in 2007. She now travels back & forth between Northern and Southern Arizona practicing clinical hygiene and providing both staffing & consulting services.
For several years, Leticia has noted a need for skilled, dependable individuals to “fill-in” in the dental offices she has worked at. For this reason, Leticia started the business Dental Temps AZ. She is excited to now provide this much needed service to both the Prescott and Tucson areas, her two favorite places in Arizona!
