Dr. Holliday received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from West Virginia University in 1985. Prior to receiving the D.D.S. degree he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry, Cum Laude, also from WVU. Dr. Holliday holds active Dental Licenses in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina and membership in The American Dental Association and The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry as well as a Fellowship in The Academy of General Dentistry. In addition to the National Dental Boards taken while in dental school, Dr. Holliday has taken and passed The Northeast Regional Dental Board, The Southeast Regional Dental Board and The North Carolina Dental Board.
After graduation Dr. Holliday was accepted and entered the United States Air Force as a general dental officer with the rank of Captain assigned to Langley, AFB in Hampton, Virginia. As an Air Force Dental Officer, Dr. Holliday was trained in all aspects of dentistry through 3 and 6 month rotations with Board Certified Specialists. These rotations included Oral Surgery (simple, complicated and impaction extractions and trauma care), Endodontics (root canal therapy and surgery), Periodontics (treating the alveolar bone and oral soft tissues supporting the teeth), and Fixed and Removable Prosthetics (replacing teeth with crown and bridge, implants, and removable prostheses). The majority of Dr. Holliday’s assignment at Langley AFB was spent as “Flight Dentist” providing dental care to fighter pilots, hospital personnel and to senior officers as well as “triage officer” for combat operations.
In 1990 Dr. Holliday was promoted to the rank of Major. Additional training while assigned to Langley AFB also included Forensic Dentistry that enables Air Force Dental Officers the capability of setting up and running a forensic dental team when necessary. Dr. Holliday was enrolled in and passed Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Advanced Trauma Life Support prior to being assigned to Geilenkirchen NATO Airbase in Geilenkirchen, Germany as Assistant Base Dental Surgeon in 1991. This was a three year assignment to the only multinational staffed NATO Airbase in the world, treating Airmen and their families from all of the 16 NATO countries at that time.
In 1994 Dr. Holliday was assigned to Pope Air Force Base in North Carolina, once again as “Flight Dentist” and lived near Southern Pines, NC. In July of 1995 Dr. Holliday was awarded a Fellowship in theAcademy of General Dentistry. The Fellowship requires Academy members to have attained 600 hours in continuing education and to have passed a written examination in all areas of general dentistry.
In November of 1995 Dr. Holliday resigned from the Air Force and returned to Lewisburg, WV after purchasing the practice of the late Dr. David McClung. The office was moved from Lafayette St. in downtown Lewisburg to its current location of 142 Holliday Lane in July of 2004. The Lewisburg dental practice is a family practice, treating children and adults of all ages in all areas of general dentistry and emphasizing preventive care. Dr. Holliday particularly enjoys cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry and alleviating dental pain. Yearly continuing education for the doctor and staff keep the practice on the cutting edge. The practice has been computerized for many years and utilizes digital x-rays that dramatically reduce radiation dose while providing better diagnostic images. Rotary file endodontics, apex locators, diode lasers and nationally recognized state of the art dental labs for fabrication of dental prostheses are the norm. Modern dentistry with a Golden Rule philosophy is the daily goal at Doc Holliday’s!
Dr. Holliday is married to the former Sarah Elizabeth Ford of Lewisburg. Sarah is a Speech Language Pathologist and they have two children, Matthew and Laura. Dr. Holliday enjoys golf, racquetball, cycling, weight lifting, reading and traveling in his spare time.
