Montana Dental Works Compassionate & Advanced Dentistry Kalispell, MT


Meet Dr. Dan McAllister

Dr. McAllister was born and raised in Great Falls. He completed high school at Great Falls High, where he was an avid musician and wrestler for the Bison. He attended Montana State University where he graduated with honors and received Montana State’s “Award of Excellence” for outstanding scholastic performance and community involvement. He then received his dental training at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.

Following dental school, Dr. McAllister served as a Captain in the United States Army. He was one of two Army dentists selected to attend the Exodontia surgical residency where he received advanced training in surgical procedures. He completed a year-long combat tour and was a top graduate from both the Army’s Air Assault School and Expert Field Medical Competition. He was selected to attend training in Oral Maxillofacial Surgery, but declined to return home to Montana and be with family and friends. Dr. McAllister has a special interest in dental implants and surgery and has completed implant training at the Misch International Implant Institute

When not practicing dentistry, Dr. McAllister enjoys exploring the local trails with his dogs and is an avid cyclist.


Meet Dr. Sarah Fontana

Dr. Sarah Fontana grew up in Minnesota, where she earned her degree in Biology at the University of St. Thomas, in St. Paul, MN. During this time, she traveled both nationally and internationally on numerous healthcare-based service trips, which ultimately led her toward pursuing dentistry. She subsequently earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, graduating with honors in restorative dentistry. For her first few years after completing school, she worked in several private practices in Missouri while her husband, Dr. McAllister, was stationed at Fort. Leonard Wood.

Dr. Fontana has completed a wide range of continuing education courses, and she has a special interest in prosthodontics (crowns/veneers) and esthetic dentistry. She enjoys working on patients of all ages and strives to create a relaxing and fun environment, knowing that going to the dentist can be difficult for many patients.

Outside the office, Dr. Fontana enjoys spending time outdoors and enjoying all that Montana has to offer. She is a huge dog lover, and if you catch her running on the trails, you’ll probably see her with her two Boxers!
