Meet Dr. Henderson
“After meeting Dr. Sanyk and the team at Smile Hilliard, I knew this was the place I wanted to be,” Stephanie says, adding, “Everyone is always smiling and encouraging one another to be great. It’s rare to find an opportunity where everyone loves what they do.”
Dr. Stephanie Henderson discovered her passion for helping others during high school back home in West Virginia. She earned the opportunity to join the Health Science and Technology Academy and was mentored at the West Virginia University School of Dentistry, which she would later attend. Her love of dentistry blossomed during her hands-on mentorship at the school. “I knew from the start that this was the profession for me. I specifically remember caring for a patient who had dental anxiety, and it felt so natural to listen to her, comfort her, and let her know her improving her oral health was worth it.”
After graduating from West Virginia University in 2012, Dr. Henderson perfected her clinical skills and established her own high standard of care while working at a private dental office in West Virginia. Her drive for excellence brought her to Columbus where she searched for the perfect office to spend the rest of her career.
Today, Dr. Henderson loves getting to know her patients. Her biggest joy is having the opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds and cultures on a daily basis. “I love speaking with my patients, learning from them and getting to know them beyond providing dental care. I am a true believer in learning something new each day.”
In her spare time, Stephanie spends time with her family. She married her husband, Festus, in 2012, and they have two young children together. She enjoys travelling and enjoying the many parks in the Northwest Columbus area with her children, especially the Columbus Zoo. She also likes to explore area restaurants and is a self-declared “foodie.”
