Dr. John Lawrence “J.L.” Holliday, D.M.D.

About Dr. JL

Dr. J.L. joined his father, Dr. “Happy” Holliday, in practice in July 2020 after practicing dentistry in the U.S. Navy for six years. “The opportunity to enhance patients’ smiles, and to make a positive difference in their oral health and overall wellness – and consequently, their lives, is very rewarding to me.” said Dr. J.L.

Following his graduation from the Medical University of South Carolina in 2014, Dr. J.L. attended Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton in San Diego, CA for a General Practice Residency where he trained in hospital dentistry and oral surgery for one year.

Dr. J.L. served two years as the dental officer aboard a naval ship, the USS HARPERS FERRY, on which he deployed to the Persian Gulf for seven months. In that role, he was responsible for providing dental services to 800 Sailors and Marines. During his final assignment, Dr. J.L. served three years as a general dentist at Naval Health Clinic Hawaii in Pearl Harbor, HI.

Dr. J.L. and his wife, Katie, returned home to Greenville in 2020 and welcomed their first son, Jack Weeks.

Dr. J.L. loves being active outdoors, whether it’s surfing, hiking, camping or running, and he also enjoys reading, traveling, and staying current on the latest developments in dentistry. Together, he and Katie share a passion for international missions, particularly for the African nation of Burundi, where there are only 10 dentists for roughly 11 million people. Dr. J.L. has attended 13 dental mission trips and hopes to remain actively involved in mission work throughout his life.

Dr. J.L. and Katie are active members of Grace Church and are both pursing a master’s degree in Cross Cultural Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary.

Dr. JL is a Member of American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and the Periodontics of Greenville Study Club.
