Edinburgh head into what should be an electric atmosphere at the Aviva Stadium knowing they will have to be at their best to reach a first Heineken Cup Final, but success against Toulouse, London Irish, Racing Metro and Cardiff Blues has left them full of confidence ahead of the biggest game in the club's history.
"Ulster are one of the best teams in Europe at the moment," Denton told the Edinburgh Rugby website.
"They are a very strong side with some very big names. There is no question how tough it is going to be.
"But Toulouse are one of the best teams, if not the best, in the world in terms of history and depth of playing ability.
"It will be tough on Saturday but we will be up for the challenge."
Like the rest of his Edinburgh colleagues, Denton has been in sensational form in the Heineken Cup so far this season.
The 22-year-old's power and precision has been a big part of the Scottish side's march to the final four but it's not just in club competition where Denton has excelled in 2012.
Scotland may have flopped in this year's RBS 6 Nations but Denton was one of his country's shining lights.
A series of stunning individual displays has undoubtedly boosted his confidence and the man himself admits the experience of playing against England, Wales, France, Ireland and Italy has had a positive effect on his performances for Michael Bradley's Heineken Cup hopefuls.
"I felt that little bit more experience I had helped me be more mentally prepared and calm before the Toulouse game, which is very important," added Denton.
"You don't want to feel out of your depth. As soon as you do, that's when you make mistakes.
"Before a big game you can end up going on the pitch mentally exhausted and you don't want that.
"This season, being my first Six Nations, it has been very important to keep a lid on that. You have to make sure there is the right balance of mental preparation.
"I feel in a good place right now and I think that's showing in my performances."
