Holly
Registered Dental Hygienist

Holly is new to our practice and excited to join the team! She is no stranger to the dental field. Her grandfather was an orthodontist and her mother is still practicing as a registered dental hygienist so she grew up helping out around the office. After attending Azusa Pacific University she completed the hygiene program at Cerritos College. She recently has moved back to her hometown of Stockton and is excited to continue her hygiene career while living close by family. Her favorite part about being a hygienist is connecting with people and educating patients about oral health. She is a member of the California dental hygiene association and is constantly furthering her knowledge. Outside of hygiene, she loves to hang out with her husband and do anything outside.
