A Brief History
Dr. Heninger grew up in Kamas, Utah. The oldest of five siblings, he attended Summit High School, where he played varsity football and served in student government. His goal in high school was to become a professional football player, but when an injury in a game led to a torn ACL and a broken tooth, he discovered an interest in dental medicine. In college, he met Maria Gonzalez, and they are happily married with two children, Camren and John. In recent years, the Colosimo family has enjoyed exciting vacations to Italy, New Zealand, and Japan. Dr. Colosimo practices endodontics in Santaquin, Utah.
Education and Training
Dr. Heninger graduated magna cum laude from from the University of Michigan. After graduation, he spent one season working in Chicago with Dr. Gromley. There, he learned additional skills related to cosmetic dentistry and worked on opening his own practice. He and Maria decided to settle back in Utah near their families in Santaquin. He’s always wanted to serve the southern Utah County community through dentistry. He is one of three practicing dentists in his family.
