Dr. Emily Monroe

     Emily Monroe was born and raised in St. Helens, Oregon and graduated from St. Helens High School in 2010. She continued her education at Oregon State University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry in 2014. During that time, she spent 6 months abroad in Australia and despite loving the adventure, she returned home to Oregon to continue her education. In June, Dr. Monroe graduated with honors from Oregon Health and Science University School of Dentistry.

     Dr. Monroe started working alongside Dr. Michael Van Gordon back in July 2019 and became a partner with the transition to Van Gordon Monroe Dental in September 2020. Dr. Emily has enjoyed coming back home to her hometown, seeing familiar faces and helping care for the community that helped raise her. Dr. Emily believes in conservative, quality dentistry and wants to work alongside you to solve your chief concerns and improve your overall dental health.

     When Dr. Monroe is not at the office; she is likely spending time with her husband, Bradley Stewart, also a St. Helens native. The couple was able to conquer some 2020 cancellations and eloped at Lost Lake in August 2020. They enjoy spending time outside, hiking, camping, golfing discing, and most importantly, spending time with family and friends that live in the area
