Monique McEachern, DDS
My passion has always been to care for children. My love for science and medicine, coupled with my love for children, was a natural marriage. I often say I don’t go to “work”, I go to “play”, because I absolutely love what I do! Being able to relate to a child on their level and helping them overcome their anxieties is very rewarding to me. To see a child transition from being extremely fearful to running in and actually love coming to the dentist is a joy to see, and it is quite rewarding to know that I played a part in turning things around for a child.

Outside the Office
Originally from Fayetteville, NC, I’ve happily made Charlotte my home with my husband, JJ, our two kids, Seth and Kirsten, and a pet bearded dragon named Jerri. My time outside the office is spent traveling with my family, partaking in some retail therapy, and training for races and triathlons.
