patients say.

"Dr. Holton is an exceptional dentist. Not only is he skilled and experienced, but he also makes me and my family feel at ease in what otherwise might be a less than pleasant experience. He makes sure we are always comfortable, no matter what procedure he's performing. To top it off, every single one of his staff is friendly, efficient, capable and helpful. They always have been, and my family and I have been patients of Dr. Holton for many years. I dare say there are times when I actually look forward to my appointments. Thank you, Dr. Holton and staff!"
