Denton was the starting No.8 for Scotland's first two RBS 6 Nations tests but was dropped in favour of Johnnie Beattie for the nail-biting 21-20 win against Italy.
However, the 24-year-old has been given the nod at Murrayfield on the weekend - and admits he is out to prove a point to head coach Scott Johnson.
"It feels awesome," said Denton. "I was very excited when I was told I'd be back.
"I found it very tough, at the start. It's something I had to get over.
"It was the coach's decision. He pointed out the reasons to me. He was pretty open about it and so was I.
"There are areas of my game that I need to work on personally but, in the short term, if I keep doing what I'm good at, getting us over the gain line and putting in a few shots here and there, I think my place in the team will be merited.
"I think the main message I got for the Italy game was that there was going to be a change in our gameplan, and that my game didn't particularly suit it.
"My argument was that I can change the way I play. But, if you're looking to get consistency in a team, which is a big thing for us, you can't have players chopping and changing how they play in a game.
"Although I was frustrated, I understood Johnno's (Scott Johnson's) decision. And, if there is one luxury we've got in this team, it's strength in the back row."
