Dr. Denison believes that going to dental school was one of the best decisions he has ever made. He loves all aspects of his job. He enjoys working with people, running the business and doing the dentistry. He became involved in dentistry after realizing it would allow him to combine his creative side and his scientific knowledge. One of his favorite parts of the job is seeing the finished results of treatments that transform a person from having poor oral health to having a beautiful functional smile. Dr. Denison finds it so rewarding to see that patient’s reaction when they first see and realize the results.

Dr. Denison is married and has two children.
