About Our Dentists

March 6th is National Dentist’s Day. We thought it would be fun to brag about the great dentists we have here at Victory Dental! We are lucky to have each and every one of them!


Dr. David Ripplinger

Dr. Dave grew up in a farming community just south of Preston, Idaho. He graduated from Marquette School of Dentistry in 2004, completing his clinical work nearly a year ahead of schedule. He was often the end of the line while practicing in the small town of Cortez, Colorado and gained great experience in a wide field of challenging dental procedures. He currently owns a practice in Boise, Idaho as well Cascade Dental. He takes pride in providing dental care to those in need. His long-term goal is to support the Cascade community by providing great patient care to local patients amongst other things. When Dr. Dave isn’t practicing Dentistry, he can be found planting at his orchard and working at the family farm with his 6 kids and wife, Katie.

Dr. BarneyDr. Eric Barney

Dr. Barney was born and raised in rural Eastern Idaho. He attended dental school in Omaha Nebraska at Creighton University, where he graduated in the top ten of his class.  Dr. Barney owns a dental office in Boise, Idaho and has been practicing dentistry for 20 years. He is an active member of the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentists. Licensed in IV Sedation, Dr. Barney offers sedation dentistry to our Cascade Dental patients. He enjoys spending time with his wife, their children, and grandchildren. They love the outdoors and whitewater rafting is one of their favorite activities.

Dr. Holdaway

Dr. Chris Holdaway

is from Spanish Fork, UT. Knowing he wanted to be in healthcare from a young age, he graduated from BYU with a BSN and obtained his RN license. His nursing education made him realize two things. First, how much medicine was run by business and second, that he really did not like hospitals! He continued on to earn his Masters in Business Administration at Arizona State University and then attended the North Carolina School of Dentistry for his DDS degree. Having spent the last 15 years in North Carolina, Dr. Holdaway is happy to be back in the west, specifically Boise, where his extended family has been residing for the past 27 years.

Dr. Holdaway and his wife, Tiffany, have 4 children (only 3 remaining at home). He enjoys movies, books, camping, hiking, and sports.  He can often be found playing basketball and soccer or watching his favorite teams.
