Holly Sellars, RDH

Holly graduated from Western Kentucky with a degree in Dental Hygiene. Her pursuit of dentistry stemmed from her mother and several years of dental assisting experience, all of which cultivated her passion of this profession. Holly took pride in serving as the president of her dental hygiene class and continues to broaden her knowledge with continuing education in Dentistry. Holly has a strong sense of understanding when it comes to providing a relaxed and enjoyable environment. She takes pride in joining the team at Burcham Dental Arts and it is hard not to find a smile on Holly’s face when she is serving the community of Kennett!

Holly grew up in Franklin, TN. She recently moved to Kennett with her Husband and has already settled in and is happy to now call Kennett home. When she’s not in the office, you can find her in the kitchen perfecting her cooking skills or enjoying outdoor adventures with her Husband.
