Randall Lawson D.D.S.

I was born at Passavant Memorial Area Hospital in 1959. My Parents are Ken and Shirley Lawson who are well known in this area as my father was an Illinois State Trooper for almost 30 years and Sheriff of Scott County from 1985-1989. My Mother is a retired RN who worked at Norris Hospital and later at Morgan-Scott Visiting Nurses Association. I grew up and attended school in Winchester. I received a B.S. in Chemistry from Illinois College in 1981 and proceeded to the University of Illinois College of Dentistry in Chicago graduating in 1985. It was during this time that I met my wife Mary Anne, who is a MacMurray Graduate, and we married in November of 1985. After a brief associateship in Bloomingdale Illinois I purchased the practice of Dr. Raymond Templin and returned to my roots. My wife and I had two children- Naomi who is currently an RN living in Dallas with her husband Josh, and Nathan who is a computer software engineer and has recently relocated from St. Louis to Denver. In 1998 I was given the opportunity to purchase a second practice- that of Dr. Robert Herr along with the College Avenue building where my practice now resides. I have been blessed with a wonderful staff and wonderful patients. March 6, 2018 will be my 32nd anniversary of beginning the practice of dentistry in Jacksonville.
