Dr. Lisa Henson— Your Eau Claire Family Dentist!
My patients are, simply put, the best! By being honest and open with my patients, they return the favor, and are a delight to work with. I love hearing their life stories and it is especially fun to meet the whole family. Every one of us has a story to tell and I feel privileged that my patients share life with me. I also love dentistry for the science and art of the field, where I am able to combine my scientific knowledge with an artistic eye, and give people healthy and beautiful smiles.
Education and Training You Can Trust
I earned my bachelor of science degree in Health Science, Biology, and Psychology from Truman State University. I continued on to the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health where I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine and a masters certificate in Dental Public Health.
I keep up to date on the latest research and technology in dentistry by frequently attending continuing education courses, reading dental research journals, and interacting with experts in the field of dentistry. In this way, I am able to offer my patients the best care based on scientific evidence. I believe that learning is a lifelong process and I am dedicated to extensive and ongoing continuing education courses that my patients can directly benefit from.
Outside the Office
I have the most amazing husband, Jeff, who is my true companion in all areas of life. In fact, he is the business manager at Regis Court Dental Associates and has an amazing heart for patient care. We are blessed to live down the street from my sister, her husband and three children, and it is not uncommon for us to walk over to each other's houses for dinner. My brother lives in Chicago with his wife and three children and it is always a treat to visit with them. My parents also live in Chicago and have made many visits to Eau Claire over the years. In our family, not a day goes by without laughter. God has blessed me with an incredible family and they have truly been my support and inspiration through the years. I spend my free time with family and friends, going to our awesome church, reading, hiking, snowshoeing, jewelry making, cooking, trying new food, gardening, traveling, and playing piano.
Being an active member of the community is something that comes naturally to me. I am involved in sponsoring the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk that honors breast cancer survivors as well as raises funds and awareness for the disease through the American Cancer Society. I am also a gold sponsor for the Justice Run that raises funds and awareness about human trafficking and other forms of social injustice through the International Justice Mission. I believe that giving back to the community in even a small way can make a big difference in both the community and the world we live in.
On June 14, 2012 we became parents for the first time when we welcomed Isaiah Stephen Henson into our lives. When Isaiah was only 8 months old, we decided life wasn't busy enough, so we brought home a golden retriever puppy. Ellie has been an amazing addition to our family and we cannot imagine life without her enthusiasm and shear love for our kids. Yes, kids. On May 5, 2014 Anna Mercy Henson made her appearance and she immediately stole our hearts. We are so utterly blessed, and although life is busy, we wouldn't have it any other way.
