Dr. Anthony Mongillo

I love this specialty! Some of the greatest changes an individual will experience in their lifetime occur right here within our walls. It’s awesome to be a part of that!

I also love spending time with my wife and our 3 kids. We have two boys and a new daughter. When I’m not straightening teeth, you could find me coaching my sons’ teams or out fishing with them. Since having a daughter we’ve discovered that orthodontic rubber bands work GREAT for pig tails. One of my favorite things is running into patients or parents out in public—if you do, please say hi and I’ll introduce you to the fam!

Before moving to Idaho, I lived in many other places. I would love to talk about your travel experiences. A couple of places I’ve lived include Switzerland during high school, and Korea where I served a church mission. I love kimchi as well as good chocolate and cheese. In fact, I tell the staff these should be acceptable forms of payment, but they don’t care for kimchi or cheese like I do (chocolate is a different story, though).

Little known facts: I played rugby in college and went running with the bulls in Spain—but don’t let that fool you because I’m pretty down-to-earth and a rather soft-spoken kind of guy.

By the way, the name Mongillo rhymes with willow and pillow. The ‘g’ is like giraffe, not gorilla. Remember, the name is Italian, so think about pizza or spicy meatballs when you say it. All I can say is, unlike my wife I didn’t get to choose it. If all else fails, Dr. M works fine!
