Holly joined Hale Family Dentistry in February of 2022 as a paid intern and quickly became a pivotal part of the team. She is currently earning a bachelor’s in science from Indiana University Fort Wayne for dental hygiene. Under the Community Dental Hygiene program, Holly will graduate with credentials to become a board-certified dental hygienist—something she says aligns well with her drive to help others. Her days entail sterilizing dental instruments, assisting clinical staff, and trying to decipher the schedule or patient calls.
Holly is originally from Ossian, Indiana, and still resides there while attending college. She is humble in her accomplishments but has excelled academically in many ways. Her latest achievement was making the Dean’s List at Indiana University Fort Wayne. She is part of the Students of American Dental Hygiene Association which raises money for the surrounding Fort Wayne charities. Holly is embarking on her senior year with high spirits, and we can’t wait to see what comes next!
When she isn’t reading to learn, she is reading for entertainment. Holly is often found at the library or her favorite haunt, Half Price Books. Her love of thrillers and realistic fiction knows no bounds, and she’s always up for discussing the latest in super cool thriller shows. She likes to keep up with the trends and is an avid follower of what’s new and popular.
She had once dreamt of becoming a chef. And although she still loves cooking and baking, dental hygiene school was a better fit. Her future plans include becoming a foster pet parent, being “The Fun Aunt” to her nieces and nephews, and learning as much as possible with Hale Family Dentistry.
