ADC is an organization of like-minded general dentists in the Tidewater area striving to maintain the character and quality of independent general dental practices; using only the highest quality materials and techniques to provide excellent individualized dental care.
Compassionate care and a sensitive chairside manner are hallmarks of Dr. Denbar’s practice and reassure even the most anxious patients. Unique attention to each patient’s well-being motivates all of the Gentle Family Dentistry team.
Away from the office, Dr. Denbar enjoys a passion for restoring antique fire trucks, woodworking and gardening (patients occasionally receive fresh eggs and vegetables in the spring and summer). He and his wife, Diana, have two grown daughters, but Dr. Mike is most proud of being a grandfather of three active grandchildren.
