Dr. William “Vaughn” Holland
Ortega Orthodontics is proud to welcome Dr. Holland to the practice. Dr. Holland is a fourth generation dentist who grew up less than two miles from our office. He is a proud alumnus of John Stockton Elementary, James Weldon Johnson, and Stanton College Preparatory School. After graduating Cum Laude from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition, Dr. Holland continued his education at the University of Florida College of Dentistry where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He was then honored by being selected to pursue a customized dual specialty program in both Prosthodontics and Orthodontics, making him one of less than ten such doctors in the United States.
Dr. Holland has decided to limit his practice to orthodontics. However, his extensive training uniquely qualifies him for the more complicated cases including but not limited to: children with congenitally missing teeth, adults with interdisciplinary needs, and treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders. Dr. Holland’s true passion for his craft is evident in his education in both restorative dentistry and orthodontics. His goal is to provide his patients with every available treatment option in order to achieve the optimal result, both aesthetically and functionally.
Dr. Holland enjoys spending his free time with wife Vanessa and their four young children, Blake, Cody, Arden & Walker. Often you will find them playing outside together with neighbors and friends.
