Dr. Lisa Holst

A native of Knoxville, Dr. Holst loves being a part of the community where she grew up. She enjoys being a part of so many smiling faces that greet her every day! Dr. Holst combines hometown friendliness and personal care with advanced technology and techniques designed to give amazingly gentle dentistry.

A 1989 graduate of the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, she believes in the value of advanced education, which includes continuing education and active membership in a variety of prestigious organizations, including:

  • American Dental Association
  • Academy of General Dentistry
  • Iowa Dental Association
  • Des Moines District Dental Society
  • American Association of Women Dentists
  • Omicron Kappa Upsilon-Honorary Dental Society

In her free time, Dr. Holst enjoys spending time with her husband, Dr. Peter Olberding, a dentist in West Des Moines, and with their twin daughters, Allison and Erica. She is passionate about attending her daughters' activities, golf and travel. A real delight is when she can combine all three passions, traveling to watch her twins play competitive college golf. An admitted "continuing education geek" she also enjoys returning to the U of IA for classes and to support the Hawkeyes. She is a member of the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce and the Lutheran Church of Hope. A Knoxville schools alumnus, Dr. Holst provides a named scholarship to "Knoxville Dollars for Scholars" annually.
