“I love coming to work everyday for many reasons. First and foremost is because what we do helps people feel better and more confident about themselves. On top of that, it’s a real joy and honor for me to see some of my early patients now bringing their children in for treatment!” – Dr. Monroe
Dr. Mike Monroe
Dr. Mike Monroe is a home-grown Oregonian and father of five who’s combined dental and orthodontic career spans three decades. He attended Linfield College and PSU for his undergraduate studies, followed by OHSU, where he earned his dental degree. After eight years of general dentistry, he returned to OHSU and completed a two-year residency program in Orthodontics.
Dr. Monroe served as president of the Oregon State Society of Orthodontists and as an OHSU instructor in both orthodontics and endodontics. And each year he attends numerous seminars and conferences to keep current on the latest advances in diagnosis and treatment.
In addition to his passion for his profession, his love of children and sports has been the driving force behind three decades of support for school and community programs in Washington, Tillamook and Columbia counties.
When he’s not in the office, you’ll likely find him out running, playing racquetball or occasionally swinging a golf club. A recent personal highlight for him was running a marathon on the Great Wall of China!
