This Is us
In 1999, Dr. Branson and his wife started a practice in Bedford called Branson Dental. His children were excited for them and would help out at the office on nights and weekends when they were not doing homework or school.
Dr. Branson's children, Todd and Tamra, went on to college and started to work in the real world, without knowing they would be called back to the family business to help it flourish in 2009.
Dr. Tamra Montroy helped Dr. Branson grow his practice for nearly 10 years before deciding it was time to start her own practice.
Joy Family Dental was created in 2021 as a practice based on family, friendship, and honest dentistry. Joy comes from the middle name of Dr. Montroy's mom, Her own middle name, and her daughter's middle name. Joy is also the foundation for what Dr. Montroy and her staff wish to bring to her patients and her community.

Registered Dental Assistant
Joy Family Dental is our new family dentist. The staff is friendly and welcoming right from the start. Dr. Montroy is patient, kind and goes above and beyond to help her patients.
One thing I truly liked was that I can schedule all my appointments via text message. I can text an actual person and get right through. Very convenient!
