Hi, my name is Gwen. I am married and we five daughters/son-in-laws who have given us 8 grandchildren. We spend a lot of time together crafting, playing games, swimming and just hanging out. We also have 2 dogs who are a big part of the family.

I have 35 years of experience in the dental field and can say I am proud to be working with Dr. Gildon. She genuinely cares about each patient and their dental health. Her standard of care is excellent and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Come by and check out our office and staff. We will make you feel at home.


Our goal is to make your visit to our office as comfortable as possible. We do our utmost to create the cleanest, safest, and most comfortable environment for our patients.  We are available to assist you with any oral hygiene or other dental concerns you my have.


My name is Heather Holifield and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have been practicing hygiene for 14 years. I received a bachelor of science degree in dental hygiene from Southern Illinois University in 2002. I grew up in Piggott, Arkansas and moved to the Little Rock area 7 years ago.

I have been working with Dr. Gildon and Nancy for about 6 years. I am so proud to be a part of this awesome team of ladies! I love what I do! I take great pride in working with my patients to provide the most comfortable and best dental care possible.
When not at work I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and my dog Luke!


Hi my name Kelly. I have worked for Dr. Jolley for 15 years and it is my favorite job in 30 years of dentistry. Our staff is compassionate and professional but we still have fun and enjoy getting to know our patients. Dr. Jolley’s passion to learn is contagious. As we increase our knowledge, our motivation to apply what we learn grows.

I have been married 28 years and have two daughters 25 and 21 and a 16 year old son. I enjoy theater and scrap booking and would love to travel more.

Dental Assistant/Orthodontic Assistants/TMJ Assistants


Hi, I’m Nancy. My family and the loves of my life are my son, Joshua (Certified Executive Chef), Marietta, my daughter-in-law, and my three grandchildren, Becket (4), Ainsley (2) and Paxton (7 months), best known as Mr. P.  They put a smile on my face and in my heart and the kids definitely keep Nana on her toes!

I live in North Little Rock. When I’m not at work, my spare time is spent with my grandchildren or baking. I’m also known as the “Cake Lady” or “Sassy Cake Lady.”

I have 40 plus years in the dental field. I’ve been blessed to have worked for some of the “Best” dentist in AR. I’ve been working with Dr. Gildon “The Boss” and Heather, one of our hygienists, for nearly 8 years. There is no place I’d rather be then here at Forest Heights Dental. Dr. Gildon and the staff care about our patients and families. You’ll feel and see the difference.
