Meet Your Colorado Dentists
Andrew Holecek, DDS
Dr. Holecek graduated from Indiana University with dual degrees in Music and Physics before pursuing his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. He also completed a General Practice Residency in 1989. Today, he is the co-founder of the Global Dental Relief Project, an organization that provides free dental care to impoverished children in Nepal, India, Vietnam, Guatemala, and Africa. Dr. Batliner was actually on the board of directors, and the two doctors share a strong sense of community service to this day. After all, they’ve been given so much, and they want to give back.
Dentistry runs in Dr. Holecek’s family, as he shares the profession with both his mother and his brother. His father was a dental lab technician as well! His professional goal is to provide state-of-the-art care in a compassionate environment. He also promotes honesty in dentistry, never “over-treating” patients for the sake of the bottom line. He cares for everyone he sees as if they were a family member, and he uses his training in stress management and hypnosis to create comfortable environments for them. He is well-trained in all phases of general dentistry and continues to have a passion for learning, attending multiple continuing education courses every year. He believes this is a Golden Age for dentistry, and he couldn’t be happier to be practicing this noble profession alongside his friend Dr. Batliner.
Skiing is what first brought Dr. Holecek to Colorado thirty years ago, and he’s never leaving this amazing state. Outside of the dental world, he is also a concert-level pianist, a published author, and an avid tennis player and skier. His other hobbies include running and being in Colorado’s great outdoors.
