Board of Directors

Executive Director    Holly Jorgensen, Collaborative RDH

Holly Jorgensen, Collaborative Dental Hygienist, is the executive director and founder of Let’s Smile, Inc. that provides two programs:  Oral Health Education Program and Clinical Preventive Dental Services Program in non-traditional settings through mobile dentistry since 2013.

Holly is an active member of the American Dental Hygienist Association, the Minnesota Oral Health Coalition, the South East Minnesota Citizens Action Council Head Start Health Advisory Board, and the Community Services Coordination Team in Steele County.

Holly has been a dental hygienist since 1994. While working in general dental offices, she noticed the lack of access to dental care for low-income families with Minnesota Health Care Plans (MHCP) or no dental insurance. Combining her passion for working with children and her dental health professional license, she has worked tirelessly to make dental health fun while bridging the oral health equity gap.
