Melanie J. Denton


Dr. Denton isn’t originally from Salisbury, but she got here as fast as she could. Raised on a hog farm in Michigan, Dr. Denton dreamed of attending the University of Michigan. She did just that, graduating with a BS in Anthropology-Zoology in 2005. Following her undergraduate studies, she attended the Michigan College of Optometry, obtaining her doctorate in optometry in 2009. Dr. Denton completed her student internships at the Duke Eye Center, the Detroit Veteran’s Affairs Hospital, and the Optometric Institute and Clinic of Detroit. Following graduation, she elected to pursue an Ocular Disease residency program and was selected to be a resident at the prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, FL, where she completed her residency. While living in Asheville, she completed an MBA from Western Carolina University.



Hannah is our full-time medical technician here at Salisbury Eyecare. Hannah came to us from another medical office in a different specialty, so she’s very familiar with medical terminology and getting patients ready for the doctor.
