Dentistry has always been deep in Dr. Holland’s family history – in fact, his father, uncle, both grandfathers, and one great-grandfather were all proud dentists! Additionally, his mother worked as a dental hygienist. From a young age, he loved so many things about the field, including the science and medicine involved and being able to fix problems with his hands. He chose to pursue the prosthodontic and orthodontic specialties because he particularly enjoyed complicated cases and working with children who had congenitally missing teeth.
When it comes to why Dr. Holland chose to eventually become a strict orthodontist, the answer is simple – he wants to be the best at what he does. His extra specialty training still helps him handle more complicated cases with ease, and this added expertise even leads to better outcomes for even the most straightforward situations.
Dr. Holland is a proud alumnus of John Stockton Elementary, James Weldon Johnson, and Stanton College Preparatory School. After graduating Cum Laude from the University of Florida with his Bachelor’s of Science in Food Science and Human Nutrition, he continued his education at the University of Florida College of Dentistry, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He was then honored by being selected to pursue a unique, five-year dual specialty program in both Prosthodontics and Orthodontics at the University of Florida College of Dentistry, making him one of approximately ten such specialists in the entire United States.
