For years, our caring team at Shane Smith DDS has been providing their community with outstanding dentistry. From the moment that patients enter through the dental office doors to when they leave, they aim to personalize every aspect of each appointment, making visits enjoyable and stress-free. You can learn more about each of the friendly faces that you’ll see in our dental office by reading below.
Having worked in dentistry for over a decade so far, Sean has seen so many wonderful smiles. He likes to hope that his smile, and the care that goes along with it, has made a lasting impact on both the patients and the community! He prides himself on giving the very best of his abilities towards serving your dental needs. In addition to being our dedicated manager, he is trained as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant.
At home, Sean and his partner Brian have three dogs (Mason, Huck, and Mabel) and three cats (Admiral, Byron, and Penny). They currently live on Crawley’s Ridge, which is a beautiful part of the country with views as far as the day is long, kindhearted people, and a zest for the simple things in life. As for personal hobbies, he enjoys traveling, eating good food, antique shopping, and sewing/crafting. One day, he hopes to have some sort of small business geared towards his personal creations!
Holly loves coming into work each day because it means she gets the opportunity to change people’s lives by making their mouths healthier. Building genuine relationships along the way is extremely rewarding too! An Arkansas native, she attended college at BRTC and Arkansas State before completing dental hygiene school at the Southern Illinois University. Today, she is certified in nitrous oxide and has her local anesthesia permit!
Outside the office, Holly’s favorite thing to do is spend time with her family, which consists of her husband, her daughter, and her two fur children. Any chance she can, she loves to be outside, especially around the water. In fact, Daytona Beach, FL is one of her favorite vacation spots! Spending time on the river with her family in the summertime is something she cherishes.
