Judith Monterrey, DDS
Dr. Judith Monterrey opened her practice Creative Toothwork in August 2014 with a dream to provide expert and personalized dental care to the community she loves. Knowing the robotic treatment patients sometimes receive, it was her plan to have a positive impact on her patients' lives. Having worked as a dental professional both in Cuba and the United States, she has treated a wide variety of patients and knows the best treatment plans for each unique case. She truly enjoys her work because it allows her to both help and get to know every individual she treats. With a team of dedicated and qualified individuals who share her perspective and passion for the community, she has fostered a family in her practice and realized her vision for what dental care should really be.
eDUCATION & Experience
Dr. Monterrey is highly-trained with over 20 years of experience. She holds dental degrees from the University of Havana in 1995 and from New York University in 2011. After graduating from NYU, she spent an additional year at a general practice residency at Jersey City Medical Center from 2011-2012.

Joel Figueredo, DDS
Dr. Joel Figueredo joined Dr. Monterrey in August 2018 after recognizing the ideals that Creative Toothwork had succeeded in upholding. With many years of experience working with patients both in Cuba and the United States, Dr. Figueredo deeply understands the importance of treating patients as individuals rather than as impersonally as has become the norm. It was extremely important to him that he be able to get to know his patients and work with them toward treatments that best suit their needs. At Creative Toothwork, Dr. Figueredo found this commitment to patient happiness, health, and well-being. He has become part of our family and vision for what dental care should be.
eDUCATION & Experience
Dr. Figueredo has over 15 years of experience as a dental professional. He holds degrees from the Camagüey University of Medical Sciences in 1992 and from New York University in 2009. After graduating from NYU, he spent 3 years in the United States Army in the Army Dental Corps where he served on a deployment to Afghanistan and rose to the rank of Captain.
Also having worked for 4 years as a dental assistant, Dr. Figueredo brings a fresh perspective toward his mission of providing the best dental care to his patients. Much like Dr Monterrey, he continues to seek out dental workshops, seminars, and other programs to continue expanding his knowledge of the best, modern dental practices.
