Holley Fatony

I discovered my love for orthodontics in 2008 and I've loved my job ever since. It is such a joy to help people enhance their confidence by making their smiles more beautiful. I truly believe we are able to have a helping in improving their journeys through life.

I'm extremely happy to have joined such a wonderful team here at Hillsboro Orthodontics. Dr. Sjursen and all of the ladies here are perfectionist at what they do and I'm so proud to be a part of that! You'll notice from your first visit to our office that everyone is very kind and caring. We love getting to know all of our patients throughout their treatment. It's especially fun to watch the kids grow up from the first time they visit our office until they complete treatment.

I grew up in Nashville and now live in Fairview with my husband and our two little boys. We enjoy outdoor fun like playing sports, boating, hiking, or just playing in the yard with our dogs.
