About Dr. Curtis Henderson
Dr. Henderson grew up in Clio, Michigan. Though his childhood dentist encouraged him to pursue dentistry, at the time it was a profession far from his consideration. After earning a BS in Neuroscience from The University of Michigan, he worked as a ballroom dance instructor. While teaching dance, a student of his, an orthodontist, also thought dentistry would be a perfect career for him and insisted he take the Dental Admissions Exam.
In 2012, he moved to Madison, Wisconsin where he worked part-time at a non-profit dental clinic while pursuing his MPH at A.T. Still University. After achieving his MPH, he was promoted to the Executive Director position of the non-profit clinic, More Smiles Wisconsin. Dr. Henderson worked here for three years, helping address the unmet dental needs of the most vulnerable population.
In 2017, he enrolled at the Marquette University School of Dentistry for his dental degree (DDS), and then completed a General Practice Residency at Harvard School of Dental Medicine & Cambridge Health Alliance in 2022. During residency, he received additional training in implantology, oral surgery, molar endodontics, and digital dentistry. Frequent trips to the DMV area during residency built the desire to one day call it home. Dr. Henderson is excited to now join the excellent team at Dental Masters and looks forward to providing high quality dental care.
Outside of work, Dr. Henderson enjoys trying new restaurants, playing tennis, hiking with his Australian Shepherd, and dancing in ballroom dance competitions around the country.
