Thanks to Dr . Hollingsworth's staff!! My crown flew off unexpectedly! I had never had any problems with crowns from my favorite dentist. I got right in even though the office was swamped that day.

Great work today! Enjoyed the pleasant staff.

Michael Nelson

I have been horrified of the dentist since I was 22. I had horrible experiences and would only go if forced or in massive pain. They were the sweetest, kindest people I've ever met. They didn't make me feel embarrassed about being scared. When I was done, my lady put a glove on and gave me some Vaseline for my chapped lips. She went above and beyond. It almost made me cry at her kind gesture. Please go to Hollingsworth Dental. You won't be disappointed!!
