Dr. Mia Balsom began her dentistry journey in a somewhat unconventional manner. After earning a Bachelors Degree in American History from Trinity College, she worked full time at a dental office while taking night courses through the Harvard School of Extension to acquire the math and sciences courses necessary to apply to dental school. She received her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry.

When it comes to dentistry, Dr. Balsom especially enjoys fixed and removable prosthetics, fueled by the challenge and fulfillment of restoring broken or missing teeth through crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures. Dr. Balsom frequently takes continuing education courses both locally and around the country. She also participates in various community service projects, from participating in programs that provide free dental care for veterans to dental outreach programs in downtown Boston community centers.

In her free time, Dr. Balsom loves spending time with family and friends, cooking, traveling, and all things sports.

Dr. Ronald B. Holiman began his dental journey after graduating from Howard University College of Dentistry in 1987. Over the last 36 years, Dr. Holiman’s career has taken him to diverse corners of the globe. He started his professional journey serving as a missionary dentist in Hong Kong for five years, making a notable impact in remote areas with weekly visits to villages on outlying islands. In 1992, he moved to Plaistow, New Hampshire with his family. He then acquired Dr. Albert Landa’s dental practice, which later blossomed into Plaistow Dental. In 2022, he proudly handed the reins over to his daughter, Dr. Shaina Darmont, with whom he had worked closely since 2015.

Dr. Holiman believes that oral health is vital to general physical health. Driven by this conviction, he ardently strives to ensure that every patient achieves optimal oral health. As part of his approach, he thoroughly discusses the individual needs of each patient with them and works with them to formulate their unique dental treatment plans.. He doesn’t believe in shaming patients and instead believes in helping patients to reach their goals in a judgment-free environment.

Committed to staying up to date on the dynamic world of dentistry, Dr. Holiman prioritizes regular continuing education—emphasizing both practice management and the adoption of cutting-edge technologies. His dedication extends to his entire team, cultivating a collective spirit of learning and progress.

One of the toughest parts of his job is telling patients they need advanced treatments or dental prosthetics due to long-term neglect. However, the joy and health they regain after treatment is deeply rewarding.

When it comes to his areas of focus, Dr. Holiman has been especially keen on restorative dentistry. He took to using CEREC technology over two decades ago, recognizing its revolutionary role in dental restorative care.

His dedication goes beyond his practice. A notable memory was a trip to the village of Poptun in Guatemala, an initiative led by Dr. Darmont in her high school days. Together with a group of enthusiastic students, they provided essential dental care, an experience that left a lasting impact.

In blending unwavering commitment, technological adoption, and community service, Dr. Ronald B. Holiman, DDS stands out as a beacon in the dental community.
