Dr. Wayne Hollar – Caldwell County Dentist

“Going to school [at CCC&TI] was a great opportunity for me to continue my education and find out what I wanted to do.”

Dr. Wayne HollarWhen you talk about doctors and dentists, education usually springs to mind, as does some of our state’s finest institutions where many local doctors have earned their degrees. What many may not realize is that the educational journey that leads to the prestige of a well-respected career as a medical professional can start at Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute. For Dr. Wayne Hollar, a successful, local dentist and family man, starting his college education at Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute, just a few miles from home in Hudson, NC, made perfect sense. “I practically grew up in the shadows of CCC&TI,” he says. “Going to school there was a great opportunity for me to continue my educationand find out what I wanted to do.” Hollar earned his Associate’s in Applied Science at CCC&TI and from there, transferred to Appalachian State University. Hollar says that CCC&TI made a world of difference for him. “That first step is important, and we’re blessed to have CCC&TI in our community,” he says. “The instructors and people there are helping to make that first step successful for more people.”
