Office Staff

Dr. Holden started her private practice in Manhattan Beach in 1995 and have build an amazing jungle themed office in downtown Manhattan Beach at the Metlox Plaza. It is her dream for her patients to have a wonderful dental experience. Every room has a jungle animal theme from zebra to monkey.

We have 2 family rooms that have 2 dental chairs in them so siblings can be treated together. Every room has a TV. The treatment rooms even have TV's on the ceiling. While children are waiting for their appointment they can play in the kids cave which has games from touch screens, XBox360 and play stations. There are 2 fish tanks with tropical fish in the waiting room and a tank in the middle of the office with swimming turtles and gold fish. We treat children from infants to teens and those with anxiety or special needs. We want all children to feel at home in our office. All children leave with a new toothbrush, floss, stickers, goody bag and toy that they get to choose on the way out. Oh, and if your child stops sucking their thumb or gives up their pacifier they get to choose a ToysRUS toy!!
