Denise S. Rollings, AAS, CVT, VTS (Dentistry)

Denise is a Veterinary Technician Specialist (VTS) who is dedicated to improving the oral health of animals. She graduated with honors from Madison Area Technical College in 2001 with her Associate of Applied Science degree in Veterinary Technology.

After trying out various fields of veterinary medicine, she found her true calling in dentistry and pursued her VTS in Dentistry through the Academy of Veterinary Dental Technicians (AVDT) in 2014. Denise founded Pet Dental Education, LLC in 2017 to promote education and innovation in veterinary dentistry. She provides on-site training to veterinary hospitals all over the country, aiming to improve the standards of dental care for animals. Additionally, she serves as a dental educator for several companies, teaching and inspiring others with her expertise. Denise has taught and assisted in over 200 lectures and wet labs over the years.

Apart from her educational efforts, Denise also provides compassionate dental care at the Pet Dental Center in Estero, FL, enriching the lives of pets one tooth at a time. Denise's commitment to excellence in dentistry was recognized in 2020 when she received the "Rising in Dentistry Leadership" Award from the AVDT.  She also serves as the Director at Large Board Member of the Academy, furthering her impact on the profession.

Denise's love for animals doesn’t just end when the workday is over. She shares her home in Fort Myers, Florida, with her husband and beloved fur babies. Among them, her cherished cat Spaulding holds a special place in her heart—so much so that if she could, she'd marry him. Her adventurous spirit has led her to study anthropology, with a special focus on New World primates. She even spent time in the Peruvian Amazon studying macaws, despite facing challenges such as battling leishmaniasis twice. However, one thing she won't adventure into is the kitchen—she openly admits to hating cooking.
