Dr. John. E. Hanlon

Dr. Hanlon was born and raised in the small, rural town of Polo, Illinois. Polo is an agricultural town, very reminiscent of Lodi, but without such a loyal duck. It was during his time in Polo that he was fortunate enough to meet his amazing wife, Megan. Dr. Hanlon graduated from Polo Community High School in 2013 and then completed his bachelor’s degree from Monmouth College in 2017 where he studied biology and chemistry. While studying at Monmouth College Dr. Hanlon spent a summer assisting at his childhood dental office. After that summer, Dr. Hanlon knew he wanted to work in a dental office for the rest of his life. After his time at Monmouth and literally two days after he proposed to his now wife, Megan, Dr. Hanlon moved to the St. Louis area to attend Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Dental Medicine. Four short years later, Dr. Hanlon and Megan moved to Middleton, and they have loved every moment since. Dr. Hanlon and his wife enjoy hiking on many of the gorgeous local trails, eating at delicious local restaurants, and spending time with their French bulldog, Stuart. Dr. Hanlon and Megan are both very excited to immerse themselves in the Lodi community and he is very much looking forward to serving the community by working with Dr. Crane and his talented staff.
