Dr. John R. Monroe, Sr.

Having several family friends who were dentists, Dr. Monroe was drawn to dentistry because he likes working with his hands and enjoys helping people. He attended Washington and Lee University, where he received his bachelor’s in biology, then Clemson University, where he received a master’s in aquatic entomology, before graduating from MUSC College of Dental Medicine. He has been in private practice in upstate South Carolina since he graduated from dental school.

Dr. Monroe and his wife, Lillian, have one son, Jack. In his downtime, Dr. Monroe enjoys running, reading, following the Furman Paladins, and watching Braves baseball.
