Meet Dr. Rebecca Monticello


Dr. Rebecca Monticello, D.D.S, M.S.

Dr Rebecca MonticelloDr. Becca’s interest in orthodontics began in this very office when she was a patient of her uncle, Dr. John Monticello. She has wanted to be an orthodontist since she was 10 years old and reached that goal by attending Michigan State University and graduating Magna Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA. From there she moved to Milwaukee, WI to attend Marquette University School of Dentistry and finished in the top of her class. Dr. Becca then moved back to Michigan to become an orthodontic specialist and attended the same orthodontic residency that Dr. John attended, the University of Detroit Mercy. Her training there included the newest technologies available to orthodontics but still set a solid foundation with traditional treatment methods and approaches. These combined allow her to provide her patients with the best and most efficient individualized treatment. She loves working with her patients to achieve their dream smiles and gain self confidence in the process.

Dr. Becca is a candidate to be a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontists. She regularly attends educational seminars and conferences to stay up to date with the newest treatment techniques and continue to provide the highest standard of care for her patients. She is also an active member of several organizations including:

  • American Association of Orthodontists (AAO)
  • Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists (GLAO)
  • Michigan Association of Orthodontists (MAO)
  • Omicron Kappa Upsilon (National Dental Honor Society)

Dr. Becca and her husband, Dr. Alex Peterson, share a love of travel, attending concerts, and rooting for MSU sports. She also enjoys cooking both new and old recipes and staying active on her Peloton. They are both so excited to join the Grand Rapids community and Dr. Becca looks forward to creating dream smiles that last a lifetime!
