Dr. Jess Holler

Dr. Jess L Holler, founded Holler Family Dentistry in 1981, after taking over the practice from Dr. Merle Drew, who had been in that same building since 1950. Since then, he and his team continue to take continuing education courses focused on crowns, bridges, and implant procedures. His favorite part about working in dentistry is interacting with people and helping them achieve their oral health goals.

“I love having patients aging all the way from two to 102 years old. I love the variety – no two days are ever the same!”

He first became interested in a career in dentistry when he was in high school. Dr. Holler’s first focus was on the medical field, and he entered Indiana University as a pre-med student. In his second year at school, Dr. Holler met his wife, Cindy – and her grandfather was a dentist. Meeting and talking with him sparked that interest to pursue dentistry for Dr. Holler.

In his spare time, Dr. Holler enjoys being with family and friends and spending time outdoors, when possible. He also likes working in the yard, going golfing, and reading on the beach.

Dr. Mark Schmitz


Dr. Mark Schmitz, a born and raised Hautian, has returned to the Wabash Valley to practice at Elite Smiles Dental.

A graduate from Terre Haute South High School, Dr. Schmitz found an interest in dentistry at an early age. After experiencing multiple rounds of orthodontic treatment as well as being able to volunteer at a dental clinic in his youth, that interest quickly turned into a passion.

Dr. Schmitz took this passion with him as he went on to graduate from DePauw University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, which lead to him to pursue his Master’s Degree in Biology from Purdue University. He completed his dental training at the Indiana University School of Dentistry. In between studying, he also found time for love as he was able to meet his wife Claire while in school!

Dr. Schmitz loves the challenge of being a general dentist and is always happy to create specialized plans for his patients.

When he’s not in the office, Dr. Schmitz enjoys spending time with his family, watching movies (the funnier, the better!), running and traveling.
