About Us

Monroe Family Dentistry

We are dedicated to maintaining the highest standard of excellence so that our patients receive the quality of dental care they deserve. Dr. Monroe and his team provide comprehensive care for restorative and cosmetic treatments, giving our patients optimal dental health.

Gaining our patients’ trust is of the utmost importance to us. We want our patients to be confident and comfortable with their dental treatment plans, and we strive to provide the most ethical recommendations.

Here at Monroe Family Dentistry, we know accidents can and will happen. We make ourselves available to take care of your dental emergencies. Even if it is a night or weekend, we are here to answer your questions and get you seen as soon as we are open.

Dr. Monroe and his team welcome new patients. You can reach us at 662-845-4311 for more information or schedule your appointment. We look forward to taking care of your dental health needs and providing you with many years of a beautiful, healthy smile.
