Denise Shepard, O.D.

Award
Best of the Best for five consecutive years

Denise Q. Shepard, O.D.


Dr. Denise Shepard is a Board Certified Optometrist and has been in practice in the North Georgia area for over 30 years.  She grew up in Rossville and graduated from Rossville High School.  Dr. Shepard received a Bachelor of Science Degree from Auburn University and Doctor of Optometry Degree from the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee.

Upon completion of her optometric training, she returned to Rossville and joined in practice with her father, Dr. Edward Quinton.  They practiced together until his retirement.  Dr. Shepard continues to provide general optometric services including routine eye exams for eyeglasses and contact lenses, medical eye care, neurological vision care for stroke and head-injured patients, and pediatric vision care for infants and children.

Dr. Shepard’s professional affiliations include the Georgia Optometric Association, the American Optometric Association, the Optometric Extension Program, and the Neuro- Optometric Rehabilitation Association.  She participates with the American Optometric Association’s InfantSEE program providing free eye exams for infants from six to twelve months of age.

The optometric skills gained by Dr. Shepard through training and experience are frequently shared with others through her volunteer service.  She often volunteers with local Lions Clubs, the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation, Remote Area Medical, and serves as an optometric advisor for MOST Ministries Foundation.  Her dedication to help those in need of vision care has taken her to Appalachia, South America, and as far away as Africa.

When not in her office, Dr. Shepard enjoys traveling with her husband, Ken – trips are often taken to Colorado and Nashville to visit their children or to State and National Parks to explore natural wonders. Kayaking has also become a new passion for Dr. Shepard. Ask her about her “whitewater” adventure.
