Meet Christopher W. Holladay, DMD

Dr. Holladay offers the full scope of dental care to his patients and focuses patient care around integrity, honesty, and empathy.

About Dr. Holladay

From Show Low, Arizona, Dr. Christopher Holladay always wanted to pursue a career in the medical field. After having the opportunity to shadow a local oral surgeon, he knew oral surgery was the right field for him. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Holladay appreciates the balance of medicine and dentistry and his unique ability to treat patients as a surgeon, dentist, anesthesiologist, and artist.

When his family moved to Utah, Dr. Holladay was eager to join a group practice that valued transparent, honest, and ethical care. He reconnected with Dr. Wood, who he recognized from dental school, and upon discovering that Utah Surgical Arts shared these values, he was excited to be a part of such a talented team.

Dr. Holladay finds it rewarding to relieve patients of their pain while restoring their oral health and function. He relates with patients through common ground to help build trust and confidence and will always communicate openly and honestly. As a patient, you can expect Dr. Holladay to always show friendliness and respect. By listening actively to fears and anxieties, he can alleviate any doubt and fear to create a positive oral surgery experience.

Education & Residency

Dr. Holladay received a BS in biological sciences from Arizona State University in 2014 and earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from ATSU Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health in 2018. Following dental school, he completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.


Dr. Holladay is a member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) and the American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (ACOMS). He maintains certifications in Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS).
