Monilla M. Dent, MD

After earning her medical degree from the Northeast Ohio University College of Medicine, Dr. Dent completed an OB/GYN residency at Michigan State University. She is board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Dent chose her medical specialty with a goal to help women with health issues throughout their lives, giving her the opportunity to develop lasting relationships with her patients. She enjoys the variety each day brings, from helping women achieve pregnancy to providing prenatal and delivery care to treating health issues that arise after having a family. With a medical philosophy centered on patient education and a teamwork approach, Dr. Dent sees her relationship with each patient as a partnership in which they work together to make good health choices. Dedicated to treating patients as family, she feels it is important to spend time getting to know each woman in her practice.

Dr. Dent’s areas of specialty include laparoscopic and vaginal hysterectomy, endometrial ablation, and insertion of long-acting reversible contraception. Additionally, she has an interest in treating women experiencing sexual dysfunction. Patients with a wide range of conditions and concerns find Dr. Dent to be a caring, capable professional with their best health and wellbeing in mind.

Originally from Flint, Michigan, Dr. Dent now enjoys life in Hampton Roads, especially the weather, proximity to the beach, and–of course–the people. Her hobbies include reading, traveling, movies and live theatre.
