“I am delighted to be practicing dentistry in Monroe and I invite you to become a part of a comprehensive care, evidence-based, & technologically advanced dental practice! I was born and raised in Monroe and attended River Oaks School prior to heading west to become a TCU Horned Frog! Despite scholarship offers to attend out-of-state dental schools, I chose to move to New Orleans to attend LSU School of Dentistry. I then came home because I love Northeast Louisiana. I’m a family man & an avid outdoorsman. When I am not practicing dentistry, I enjoy family time, tennis, golf, hunting, fishing, skiing, football, and cooking. Please share any recipes or hunting stories with me that you may have. Looking forward to meeting you!”– Lane Eddleman, DDS
