Whether we’re celebrating with a patient about getting their braces off or helping a nervous loved one settle into the treatment chair for the first time, you can always trust in the Ortega Orthodontics team to make the appointment experience amazing. We’ve all got plenty of knowledge to spare (don’t hesitate to ask a question!) and genuine passion for the work we do – plus, our smiles are great too. We can’t wait to meet you and your family soon.
Vanessa is originally from Orlando and attended the University of Florida for her education, earning her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a degree in Marketing. Her favorite part of this position is being able to watch each patient’s confidence positively transform over time, as well as getting to know them and their families.
Vanessa has been married to Dr. Holland for over a decade now, and they have four young children, two dogs, and a cat at home. Outside of work, she enjoys going camping and fishing with the family, running, working out early before everyone else wakes up, and eating anything chocolate. She was a former University of Florida cheerleader as well – GO GATORS! She also regularly practices photography and was actually the one who captured all of the pictures of patients you see on our orthodontic office walls and in our advertisements.
Emily first joined our Orthodontic office two years ago, and despite how cliché it sounds, she truly loves working with such wonderful patients and team members every day.

Cameron is a Jacksonville native and one of the newest members of Dr. Holland’s team. Amazingly enough, her mom and grandma worked for Dr. Holland’s dad as dental assistants! Today, she strongly believes that she has the coolest boss and works for the best orthodontic team ever.
Cameron is the oldest of three siblings and enjoys hanging out with her entire family whenever possible, especially her mom. When she isn’t busy at the practice, you can often find her scarfing down some Chick-Fil-A.

Jessica is the proud wife of Chandler and the happy mommy of a young son named Declan. When she has free time outside of Ortega Orthodontics, you can find her often going to the beach, painting, refurbishing furniture, fishing, and spending quality time with her family. She’s actually never been on an airplane in her life!
Lyndsay joined the Ortega Orthodontics team in September of 2017. Before that, she was actually a patient of Dr. Holland’s! After having her smile transformed, she knew right away that she wanted to help others go through the same wonderful transformation. She is CPR-certified and has experience with special needs children as well.
Lyndsay comes from a faithful and caring family that contains lots of first responders. Her hobbies include fishing, playing tennis, hunting, traveling, and practicing photography. In the past, she’s had the amazing opportunity to travel to Haiti four different times on mission trips. She’s taught children how to brush their teeth, help with malnourished babies, and tell the Haitian people about Jesus. It was truly a lifechanging experience!
