Originally from eastern Kentucky, Dr. Hughes moved to Russell Springs while still in college after marrying local Jason Hughes. She finished her undergraduate studies at Lindsey Wilson College with degrees in biology and chemistry. Dr. Hughes then went on to study at the University of Louisville’s School of Dentistry. After a year associating in three general dentistry practices, Dr. Hughes opened the doors of The Tooth Booth in March 2012. With two expansions in under a year and half, The Tooth Booth has grown to the area’s leading family and cosmetics practice under the direction of Dr. Hughes.
In her spare time, Dr. Hughes enjoys showing and trail riding her Tennessee Walking horses (the activity that brought her and husband, Jason, together in the first place), spoiling her cocker spaniels (Molly & Abby), and shopping for and restoring antique furniture (which she showcases at Junk Pony, a boutique with her mother as partner that sales these reinvented pieces). Junk Pony brings alive another passion of Dr. Hughes’- fashion. Did we also mention she’s a mom in her spare time? After many years of praying for a child, the couple’s son (Otis) was born September 13th, 2015 and has been a huge star on our Instagram account ever since.
