#### Abstract

Let *M* be a metric continuum containing a fixed point *p*. The following conditions are shown to be equivalent. (i) *M* is a dendrite. (ii) Each subcontinuum of *M* is a monotone retract of *M*. (iii) *M* is arcwise connected and each subcontinuum of *M* containing *p* is a monotone retract of *M*.
