New dentists’ office comes to Hartselle

By Lauren Thornton Tobin

Hartselle Family Dentistry is the town’s newest place to receive oral healthcare and it’s the first office in town owned by women.
Maggie McKelvey, a Hartselle native, and Ashley Holladay, a Danville native, have a combined 12 years of experience and both said they are looking forward to the new practice, particularly serving the town’s youth.
“Both of us have experience with children and half our practice is devoted to kids. We have some things that make it a little more kid friendly,” McKelvey said, explaining the office has TVs on the ceiling so that children have something to focus on during the visit.
While most people already have a dentist they love, McKelvey said she and Holladay want Hartselle Family Dentistry to be somewhere the whole family can come to receive oral healthcare.
“We know a lot of people probably have a dentist they’re established with but coming to our office, we treat the whole family,” she said.
Clinic hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but as business grows, so will the hours, McKelvey said.
Both dentists take patients who don’t have dental insurance and children with Medicaid.
