Name of Business:  Holman Family Dental Care

Description: Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

What year was your business founded/established?  December 2017

 What made you decide to open your business
I have always dreamed of having my own practice where I can help my local community (My husband and I are from Chapel Hill) and change lives. Being able to own my own practice means being in control of the atmosphere, customer service and being in the position to help those in need. I can use the best materials and latest technology that makes a difference in the quality of my dental work. 

What makes your business unique?   
We have a very relaxed environment where we aim to make our dental office not smell or feel like a dental office. We utilize essential oil diffusers, play nice music and have original local artwork that is throughout the office. It is also a priority for us to make sure patients have options to pay for treatment so they do not get in trouble by delaying important dental work. We accept most insurance and offer a savings plan for those without insurance. 

What do you wish your local neighbors (potential customers) knew about your business? 
We are doing dentistry differently. We are conservative, judgement-free and utilize the latest technology and evidence-based practice. We show you photos to help you understand what is going on with your teeth and what we can do to make them healthy and strong and last as long as possible. We take the time to explain and answer questions. 

What are your next goals for your business (any exciting expansion plans or new product/services)?   
We have 2 more treatment rooms that we will be building out in the next couple of months so we can see more patients. I am also purchasing a laser that will help me to offer more procedures. 

If someone were to give you $100,000 to invest in your business, how would you spend it?   
Since I just opened my office and things right now are new, I would likely save that money to be able to invest in new technology over the next 10 years. It is really important to me to be able to keep up with the rapidly changing technology in my field. 

What do you enjoy most about doing business in Orange County? 
I love being able to build strong relationships with people from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. I also love the value people put on supporting local businesses. I love being able to impact the lives of those in my local community. My husband is born and raised in Chapel Hill and my family moved here when I was 16. We have a very large family and network of friends in Orange County so being in the position to help them with their dental health is amazing.
