About Garrick W. Denny, DDS
Dr. Denny was born and raised in the South Bay. After graduation from Peninsula High School, he pursued his undergraduate studies at California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences. Thereafter, he attended and graduated from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. While in dental school, he completed several hospital-based externships in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, General Dentistry, and Removable Prosthodontics. After graduation, Dr. Denny returned home to the South Bay working as an associate in Carson. The son of Robert W. Denny, an orthodontist and Karen Denny, a registered dental hygienist, Dr. Denny was exposed to the ins and outs of dentistry at a very early age. In fact, his first job was making retainers at his father's practice in Torrance. Dr. Denny is not the only one of his siblings to continue in the "family business." His sister, Mary, is a general dentist in the San Francisco Bay Area; his brother, Trevor, owns a dental practice in Santa Barbara; and his younger brother, Cabot, is a denist providing orthodontic services at his father's office.
