Dr. Wonkyu Seo
General Dentist - Las Vegas, NV.
Dr. Wonkyu Seo’s journey in dentistry began when he attended Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO. He completed his doctorate in dental at New York University’s College of Dentistry in New York City — a school ranked #5 on SCImago Institutions Rankings’ of dental schools in the country.
Once he had the necessary tools and education under his belt, he began practicing as a general dentist in 2018. Throughout this career, Dr. Seo has placed making patients feel like family as his top priority. By creating special bonds, Dr. Seo can better diagnose and treat patients while giving you the advice you need for success.
Dr. Seo is a sports fanatic, particularly cheering for the LA Rams and LA Dodgers, though he’s never been a resident of the area. Sports and his dental career don’t compare to his love for his wife, though, whom he spends a great deal of time with when he’s not practicing dentistry. We can’t forget to mention the joy he gets when spending time with his Maltese pooch, Doobu!

Dr. Peter Bonifatto
General Dentist - Las Vegas, NV.
Dr. Peter Bonifatto grew up in Vegas in the Summerlin area and noticed as a child that a smile has a profound effect on people. He completed his undergraduate and dental school education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus, and studied abroad in Brighton, England, for one year. Interestingly, he originally wanted to become a plastic surgeon but learned it wasn’t for him while in college.
Upon earning his doctorate, Dr. Bonifatto moved to Hollywood, CA to pursue his dental career. During this time, he cultivated his skill and expertise. He’s now back in the Vegas area (you can’t take Vegas out of the man), practicing at Summer Dental and seeing the meaningful impact dentistry has on people’s confidence and general health.
Outside these doors, Dr. Bonifatto loves to cook and experiment with new recipes, though you’ll never catch him baking. He willingly admits his baking skills, or lack thereof, aren’t great.

Dr. Pouya Momtaz
Orthodontist - Las Vegas, NV.
Dr. Pouya Momtaz grew up in Boston, MA. He was the middle child, with two sisters. He desired to help people, build relationships with them, and be along for the ride of smile transformations, thus choosing orthodontics. It helped that his father, whom he looked up to, was also a practitioner. He completed his undergraduate and dental school degrees and a one-year residency in Boston.
Making a daring move, he decided to pack his bags and move to Vegas. Before practicing as an orthodontist here, Dr. Pouya Momtaz completed a one-year fellowship in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and an orthodontic residency at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas.
After getting a taste of the area, Dr. Momtaz chose to stay here to practice. Today, he’s now watching patients’ journeys, from start to finish, when transforming their smiles, and he loves every minute. In his free time, he’s outside grilling, playing basketball, or working on his Jeep, the while surrounding himself with family and friends.

Education & Credentials
Hygienist - Las Vegas, NV.
Kendra Power entered the field of dentistry in 2010 and has been a valuable member of the dental community ever since. She completed her associate’s degree, became a hygienist, and eventually decided to return to school for her bachelor’s to better serve the Vegas area.
Any time she can, she spends it volunteering with pediatric and military non-profits to spread the joy of beautiful, healthy smiles. At the office, she’s on a mission to make every patient she encounters feel cared for throughout every aspect of the visit. She takes pride in watching patients leave with smiles on their faces, beautiful and clean ones at that.
While we never see Kendra sitting, when she’s not working or volunteering, she likes to kick up her feet and let her mind wander free in front of the TV, enjoying programs like Alone and Yellowstone. She also finds great joy in packing up every now and then and heading to the mountains for the breathtaking views and fresh mountain air, especially in Montana.
