Everyone has a smile! A smile makes you feel good about yourself. Hello, I am Dr. Lara Kirstin Holly, and my mission is to bring a smile to everyone who comes to our offices. My parents taught me that hard work, honesty, open-mindedness, and a passion for your career will always build relationships.
I grew up on the East Coast alongside my younger brother. We learned teamwork throughout our time working on the family farm. While growing up, I enjoyed playing sports like field hockey and lacrosse. I also enjoyed watching Baltimore Orioles baseball games. I have worn many alumni jerseys, from Rutgers Scarlet Knights (undergraduate degree) to the Tufts Jumbos (dental school).
As an adult, I have spent most of my life living in Dallas. Baylor College of Dentistry, Texas A&M University, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, and Children’s Medical Center Dallas were my homes away from home during my pediatric dental residency and fellowship. I now enjoy professional membership in numerous local, state, national, and international dental health academics and organizations.
I enjoy family time and marveling at my children growing up. We have a wanderlust for travel, sometimes personal and other times professional. Mission work has taken our family from serving in Dallas to Costa Rica.
I am proud to be a patron member of the Lake Highlands Chapter of the National Charity League, alongside of my Tick-Tocker daughters. Their mission is to foster the mother-daughter relationship thru philanthropy, community service, leadership development, and cultural experiences.
Thank you; it’s been a pleasure to tell you a little about who I am.
