Alison Hollitz

Front Office, Registered Dental Assistant

I have been in dentistry for 13 years, starting shortly after I graduated high school. After obtaining my Registered Dental Assistant license in 2009, I spent most of my career assisting the Dentist (many of those years were spent with Dr. Borrowdale). My most recent position has been in the front office and while I love each role, I can honestly say that my passion has been for my current assignment. I love greeting each patient that walks into the office, answering any and all questions and helping patients navigate their schedules and treatment. When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two young children on our 60 acre ranch in Lincoln.
