Meet the doctor

Rodney F. Holcombe, D.D.S.

Dr. Holcombe is originally from Richmond, Virginia. His interest in the dental industry originated from a mentorship experience with his own dentist in high school. Along with his cousin, Mitzi Gill, and Dr. William Gill, Holcombe studied how to become a master dentist.

He attained his Bachelor in Psychology from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. He later went on to receive a Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1986 from the Medical College of Virginia. At the University of Maryland in Baltimore, he completed the General Practice Residency in Advanced General Dentistry.

In 1987, Dr. Holcombe joined Dr. William Gill’s practice and opened up a brand-new practice in Tampa in 1991. After purchasing that very practice, Dr. Holcombe opened up our current location in Tampa Palms.

Dr. Holcombe was a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, where he learned leading edge cosmetic treatments. He is a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, which allows him to stay updated with the latest techniques in the evolving dental industry. Dr. Holcombe has mentored The Hornbrook Group on anterior esthetics and live patient treatment.

His experience with the Pankey Institute and The Pete Dawson Group provided him with information to help patients with bite and TMJ issues. He received training from Misch International Implant Institute—a world-renowned institution for implant training. He also received hands-on training from Dr. Tom Balshi at PI Institute—the creator of Teeth in a Day.

He takes pride in providing clients with beautiful smiles in the cosmetic and dental implant industry. The doctor utilizes advanced techniques to complete accurate restorations for Teeth in a Day and making patients feel comfortable with sedation dentistry methods.
