My philosophy is to provide my patients with the highest quality of 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.
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Missouri-Kansas City
- Master of Science – University of Illinois at Chicago
- Orthodontic certificate – University of Illinois at Chicago
Continuing education is the key to improving how I practice orthodontics and keep up to date with more advanced treatment techniques. We are always improving the way we help patients to have a better and more comfortable treatment experience. At Holliday Orthodontics, we continually update our knowledge of Invisalign© invisible braces and various methods of self-ligating bracket technology.

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