Leslie - Registered Dental Hygienist, Dental Hygiene Local Anesthesia License

I am a 2012 graduate from Allegany College of Maryland with an Associate in Applied Science Dental Hygiene Degree. I also received my Local Anesthesia license when I graduated. I was in a general dentist practice for four years prior to joining Dr. Holden's office. I am very happy that I joined this specialty practice in May of 2016. It has been a great learning experience. 

I enjoy working in a very professional, yet relaxed atmosphere. I look forward to coming to work and getting to know more of Dr. Holden's long term patients as well as new ones. Dr. Holden is an excellent example of what a great periodontist should be. He truly has his patient’s best interest in mind when recommending treatment. My co-workers are very helpful and have welcomed me as if I were here since the practice opened!

I am a mother to two young children. I have a son and a daughter that keep my husband and I busy at home. I enjoy cooking, spending time with family and exercising.
