Dr. John E. Monsman
Dr. Monsman is the youngest of six children who were all born and raised in a small steel town in northwest Pennsylvania. Growing up, he was focused on academics and excelled in sports such as baseball, basketball, and football. He also followed his love of music through learning to play the flute.
Dr. Monsman attended the University of Pittsburgh for his undergraduate degree, then continued his professional studies at University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. After graduation, he chose to further his education by completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the Eastman Dental Center in Rochester, New York. It was at Eastman that he developed a love and enthusiasm for cosmetic dentistry.
He is an active member of both the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Monsman believes that dentistry is a time-honored, high integrity profession. Having learned to blend the art and science of dentistry, he feels confident approaching the needs of his patients from both points of view. As a member of our Eastern Virginia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry team, Dr. Monsman will bring 32 years of wisdom and experience in the field. We believe that you will find his attention to details and compassion are evident to every patient he meets.
Dr. Monsman and his wife, Kathy, will have been married for 27 years this November! Dr. Monsman likes to recall that after their first date, they both knew they would be spending the rest of their lives together. Like Dr. Monsman, Kathy shares his love of dentistry as she is a dental hygienist. She and Dr. Monsman have worked along side each other for most of their careers. When not caring for their patients, the Monsmans contribute to local food banks, school supply drives, and Toys for Tots. They enjoy cheering for the Pittsburgh Steelers and watching NBA basketball. They are also avid movie goers and especially enjoy comedies and action/adventure films.
