Becoming a dentist was an easy choice for Dr. Henderson. As a youth, science classes were always his favorite. He adds, “And I’m a good artist. Plug those factors into an equation, and you get a dentist.”
Dr. Henderson is a Monroe native and the third of five children in his family. His favorite childhood memories are epic front yard football games with uncles and cousins on holidays, Sunday spaghetti at Gammy’s, and Bayou DeSiard fishing. From youth teams through high school, he played baseball, football, and, most often, soccer.
After graduating from St. Frederick High School, he attained his undergraduate degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. His education continued at the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry, where he earned his DDS degree.
“I love helping patients regain lost confidence by restoring their smile.”
Dr. Henderson’s Philosophy on Dentistry
His goal is to preserve teeth whenever possible. Dr. Henderson says, “In an ideal world, I would never have to extract a tooth.” He enjoys all aspects of dentistry. But he finds it particularly satisfying to relieve a patient’s pain and restore or maintain their ability to eat.
