Meet Dr. Holliday

My philosophy is to provide my patients with the highest quality orthodontic care with exceptional service by going the extra mile before, during, and after their treatment. I am inspired when I see changes in my patients, both in how their smiles improve and how their self-confidence grows. Since I started Holliday Orthodontics in 2004, my goal has been to give my patients a healthy smile they can be proud of.

Continuing education is the key to improving how I practice orthodontics and keep up to date with more advanced treatment techniques.

Outside the Office

I love spending time with my three daughters, travelling, and learning about different cultures around the world. I also enjoy learning new languages and am fluent in Spanish, some French, Italian, and Russian.

our patients love us

“Orthodontic treatment is not at all hard or painful. In fact all I needed to do was wear the Invisalign and that was about it. The instructions were clear and simple, the office staff made it fun & comfortable. Thanks to this, my teeth are straight.” ~ Tim P.

“My experience with braces was fantastic. Before I got them I didn’t feel very confident that I would be responsible with my braces or know enough to not feel nervous about getting them. Yet they reassured me that the process could go great and they answered my constant questions with smiles.” ~ Kaitlyn B.

“Invisalign really works... If you hate the hassle of braces then Invisalign is truly the best thing for you. 6 out of 5 stars, hands down. I highly recommend Invisalign for anyone who wants the best results in the most comfortable and convenient way possible.” ~ Matthew G.

“I didn’t think there was anything wrong with my smile. After all, I had the smile all my life. The gap, from my mom and the overbite from my dad. My teeth began to shift at age 37, and a referral was made for braces... The results were phenomenal! I received compliments in a daily basis. My smile is better, brighter, and most of all my X-ray looks like a human instead of a horse, LOL!” ~ Montreal P.

“The Invisalign experience has been phenomenal! Initially I was worried about pain or discomfort. However, there was no pain and discomfort was at a minimum. Dr. Holliday and his staff took care of me wonderfully. This has far exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Dr. Holliday and Invisalign!” ~ Gary Y.

“My overall experience was great. Everyone was very professional. They treated me great. I also got great results.” ~ Bradley A.

“Words can’t express how thankful I am for my new (and improved) smile… Mahalo Dr. Holliday and girls for treating me so great! Thanks a bunch. ~ Damien A.
