Meet Dr. Alex Ristau
Associate Dentist

Dr. Alex Ristau is a native Tennessean who began his professional career out west completing his doctorate of medicine in dentistry at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in Glendale, AZ and then going on to practice in Maui, HI. After exploring the west Dr. Ristau wanted to get back to his roots in the great state of Tennessee where he became an associate with Montee Dental Co.

His education and experience has made him adept in painless dentistry, conservative same-day dentistry, oral surgery, endodontics and implant dentistry.

Dr. Ristau is committed to his craft but has always been committed to his patients more. We know going to the dentist isn’t always the most fun ordeal, but Dr. Ristau strives to make every patient’s experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.



Dr. Ristau grew up in a suburb of Nashville, TN were he found his love of the outdoors and especially his love for rock climbing. After earning a scholarship to the University of Denver, his natural curiosity took him out west. There he found his ultimate playground in the Rocky Mountains and would go rock climbing and snowboarding every chance he got. After getting accepted to the Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine, Dr. Ristau continued his exploration out west in the deserts of Arizona and spent many of his free days snowboarding in Flagstaff and swimming the water holes of Sedona.

After dental school Dr. Ristau found his passion for adventure taking him to Maui, HI where he continued his passion for the outdoors by surfing the North Shore.

Now, Dr. Ristau is excited to be back home in his old stomping grounds to continue his outdoor exploration of all this great state has to offer.
