Dr Karen HughesHello, my name is Karen Hughes. I started this practice with the idea of providing modern dentistry to the entire family, from Great-Grandma to the toddler, while trying to make the experience as comfortable as possible. I genuinely enjoy practicing dentistry and the highlight of my day is when a patient says “That didn’t hurt at all!” or “That’s way better than it used to be!” or when they actually fall asleep during treatment–that takes being very relaxed!

I actually grew up in Mount Washington, Kentucky, from birth to high school graduation, and then attended the University of Louisville for both Undergraduate and Dental School. I graduated University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 2005 and purchased a small two-room dental practice from my professor Dr. Ryan Noble in my hometown of Mount Washington. I practiced in this small office space for 5 years before moving to our beautiful new office down the road in 2010. I absolutely love the small town feel of Mount Washington and all of the special people that live here.

When not caring for patients, I spend my time with my husband of 10+ years Kenny Hughes, a biology teacher and coach at Bullitt East High School, and my children Easton and Ellie. My hobbies include running (completed my first full marathon in 2014), gardening, photography, and following UofL sports.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing what a comfortable dental experience can be!
