Denise graduated from Prairie State College in 2009 and stays up to date with continuing education courses throughout the year.  Her certifications include CPR, nitrous oxide administration and local anesthesia administration.  She is currently a member of the Chicago Dental Society.  She provides quality oral hygiene services as well as patient education and loves to build strong relationships with her patients on both a professional and personal level.

When not treating patients, Denise organizes dental seminars to offer other hygienists and dentists in the area the opportunity to further their growth and education in periodontal disease.  She selects topics that help improve the quality and care of patients.

In her spare time, Denise enjoys running, reading and spending time with her family.
