Denise has a degree in Biology from the University of VA and graduated from ETSU dental hygiene school with top honors. She has practiced dentistry since 1996 and has worked at our office since 2002. She grew up in Southwest VA where the declining coal mining business made dental health a luxury, so she chose to move to the Knoxville area as soon as she graduated to pursue her hygiene career.
She loves her job and her “work” family, including patients that she has known for years. The best part about being at the same position for so long is that patients become our extended family. We can't wait to catch up every six months.
Denise and her husband live in Karns with their two children Alexandra and Aaron. In their spare, time they love to run mud races, coach soccer and hang out at the beach.
