Allison Holt graduated from Valdosta State University with an Associate degree of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene in May 2017.

Allison believes that it’s very important to educate patients and feels great reward when seeing improvement in their oral health as well as their overall health. “I am excited about being a part of Dr. Alex’s team as we will work together to meet the needs of our patients and provide the best possible care.”
