A Note from Dr. Hodous… So long 2018

January 11, 20190

So long 2018… what a year you have been!

From milestones, adventures, new grandbabies, and some new additions to the dental team, the year has gone by in a flash!

As I look ahead to 2019, I’m so grateful for the overwhelming amount of support, trust and confidence you have shown to my team and me. Thank you for letting us take care of you and your families dental needs. We look forward to continuing to provide the very best dental care to our patients and community in the New Year.

2018 brought two new grandbabies to my wife Kim and I. That’s makes a total of four in just under two years! We made our annual trip to Maine in July and also snuck in a quick trip to the beach in Florida in October. We spend every free weekend tucked in the woods near Hot Springs in our off-the-grid home that we love so much. This Spring we’ll see our last one at home graduate and we look forward to that elusive idea that we keep hearing so much about – an empty nest!

Just as I am grateful for my family, I’m also grateful for my dental team. They continue to amaze me with their dedication and care.

Marlene is starting her 28th year as a dental hygienist and her 4th year in our office. Her delightful spirit along with her extensive experience make her one of the best hygienists around!

Jill joined our team in August as the Front Desk Coordinator. She is new to NWA but brings years of experience in dental insurance and benefits. She is a great addition to the team and will make sure to get you into the schedule and maximize your dental benefits to the fullest!

And the newest smiling face in our office is Kristi. She started in December as my dental assistant and we’re off to a great start! After a short hiatus from the dental world, she’s glad to be back and already an important team member.

Although 2018 was a great one, we are looking forward to 2019! As we enter this new year, we wish you health, happiness, love, peace and most of all beautiful SMILES.


Happy New Year from all of us!

Dr. Hodous, Marlene, Jill and Kristi
