Meet Our Team
Dr. Blake Julian
With a father as a dentist, Dr. Julian practically grew up in a dental office. He started working in the lab sterilizing instruments at the age of 14. While earning a degree in Human Biology at the University of Kansas, he worked as a chair side assistant during his summer vacations. He went on to graduate from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, carrying the torch of dental excellence on for the second generation.
Dr Julian moved to the Upstate in 2010 and was immediately struck with the beauty & variety of activities the Greenville area had to offer. In fact, He saw many similarities with his practice philosophy. Dr. Julian has spent countless hours attending continuing education courses gaining proficiency in oral surgery techniques, conscious sedation, implant placement, bone grafting and sinus lifts, laser dentistry, as well as staying on the cutting edge of advancements in cosmetic dentistry.
Much like the Upstate of South Carolina has just about everything to offer its residents, Dr. Julian is able to offer a treatment solution to any dental need a prospective patient might have all in the same office. Dr. Julian believes that all these different skills blend together and enable him to provide a more complete and comprehensive treatment experience for his patients in as few appointments as possible, and with only one doctor to meet he is able to create lasting patient-doctor relationships with a personal touch.
When Dr. Julian is not caring for his patients, he enjoys golfing with his father, crafting projects at the Greenville Woodworkers Guild, and spending time with his loving wife Holly and their dog Molar Bear. You might also recognize Dr. Julian from television. He has appeared on The Bachelor franchise (where he met his wife) as well as the talk show, The Doctors, several times to discuss and share tips for maintaining a healthy mouth. At least once a year the good doctor pays homage to his hometown of Steamboat Springs, Colorado by hitting the slopes in the Rocky Mountains.
Holly is new to the world of dentistry, thanks to her husband Dr. Blake. She has been assisting for nearly a year and has quickly developed a passion for it. Prior to moving to South Carolina, Holly earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications at Walsh University in North Canton, Ohio.
Some of Holly’s other interests include writing children’s books, dancing and crafts. In fact, she has a published children’s book called Chocolate Socks. She and Dr. Blake were married in June and have since added a puppy named Molar Bear to their new family.
