Cassie

Hello friends! My name is Cassie Holen and I am happy to be joining the team at Camp Smile as of this year, 2016! I have re-located to Minnesota as of 2014 after having a little boy who is almost three and I now have a sweet baby girl three months old! Along with our two furry kids, our pups, the family is complete! Both my husband and I did grow up in Minnesota, so the snow and cold winters are nothing new. We love being closer to our families. I lived in San Diego for twelve years where I worked in pediatric dentistry for ten years. Pediatrics is my passion. I love meeting new families and helping kids learn how and why it is so important to take care of your oral hygiene. My goal as an assistant is to make sure I do my best to have each child leave here with a sparkling smile and the confidence to do the same at home. I also strive for them to want to come back and see us so they grow up and have no fear of the dentist while keeping a healthy smile!
