Dr. Jonathan Eshleman grew up in Raleigh, NC, the oldest of three children and the son of an engineer. He was drawn to a career in health care as early as first grade. This, along with a love of working with his hands, appreciation for the artistic aspect of dentistry, and a desire to serve people, made dentistry a perfect career choice.
Dr. Eshleman completed his undergraduate studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, majoring in economics. He received his DDS from the UNC School of Dentistry. After graduating in 1995, he moved to Charlotte with his wife, Kristen, and began working for Charlotte Dentistry. He is now a partner.
His professional memberships include:
- American Dental Association
- North Carolina Dental Society
- Charlotte Dental Society
- American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
He also participates in a local implant study club. He has been named one of Charlotte Magazine’s Top Dentists.
With a sincere compassion for his patients and a passion for quality care, Dr. Eshleman takes seriously his call to serve his patients and considers it a vital part of his relationship with God. Quiet and thoughtful, he brings a calming spirit to the patients he serves. He is inspired by Paul’s charge to the Thessalonians: “Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another … But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders …” (1 Thes. 4:9-12). Together with the team at Charlotte Dentistry, it is Dr. Eshleman’s heart’s desire that patients feel served, cared for, and welcomed as honored guests.
A great listener, he loves listening to patients’ stories and crafting solutions to fit their needs. His gentle demeanor puts patients at ease.
Outside of work, Dr. Eshleman loves spending time with his wife of 20-plus years and three children. He serves as a volunteer in the worship ministry at Church at Charlotte and is on the Board of Trustees at Charlotte Christian School. He enjoys acoustic guitar, photography, grilling out, and running. His family loves to vacation on the NC beaches and spend time together riding bikes, swimming, kayaking, and playing games.
