Bret Holman, DDS
Bret grew up in Morgan, Utah and graduated form Morgan High School in 1987. Bret joined the Army Reserves right out of high school. He had the opportunity to go to Korea with the Reserves which started his love of travel.
Bret then served a mission for his church from 1988 to 1990 in Brazil where he learned the importance of serving others. After his mission, Bret met his wife Vicki and they were married in January 1991. 3 kids and 30 years later they are still going strong.
Bret did not know what he wanted to do as a career after his mission, so he joined the Army full time and was stationed in San Antonio, TX where he was trained as a dental lab tech and after his training was stationed in Baumholder, Germany. Bret was honorably discharged in 1994.
Bret worked as a dental lab tech for a while, and then decided that he would rather be a dentist. Bret graduated from Weber State with a degree in Microbiology in 2000. Because of young family obligations, Bret did not enter dental school until 2006 and graduated from the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2010.
Bret had a strong desire to set up a practice in an under served area and with the help of a classmate he found a small town in Southwest Kansas. Bret’s father-in-law came from Utah to Kansas and built a clinic where he practiced for 11 year, until his desire to move closer to home and family became too strong. He sold his practice in April of 2021.
Some of Bret’s favorite things are traveling, snow and water skiing, hiking, fishing, horses and dogs. Bret and Vicki have traveled to many countries, two of their favorites are Costa Rica and the Cook Island. Bret started to snow ski when he was very young, and enjoys sharing it with his family. Since moving back to Utah, Bret and his family have started hiking again, considering there were no mountains in Kansas, and you could see your dog running away for three days. Bret grew up fishing with his dad and enjoys being out on the lakes in rivers. Bret had three horses and a mule in Kansas and enjoyed working with them and gaining their trust. Unfortunately he had to sell them when they left Kansas and looks forward to buying more. Bret and his family have 3 dogs. One little rescue that rules the house and two big ones we call farm dogs.
