Dr. Amy Pugh, Dentist

Dr. Pugh has been a dentist in Southwest Washington for over 15 years. Amy loves helping people and general dentistry provides a means for her to do this full time.

Outside of work Dr. Pugh thoroughly enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, trail running, rock climbing and cycling. On any given weekend over the summer Dr. Pugh and her husband will be somewhere in the northwest doing something outside.

She also has a passion for food and loves to entertain, often preparing meals for friends and family.

Laurie, Dental Hygienist

A skilled hygienist for over 20 years, Laurie absolutely loves interacting with people. This genuine interest in people along with her clinical experience make her perfectly suited for her career.

When not at the office Laurie enjoys gardening, reading, camping and spending time with family.


Shilah, Dental Hygienist

Shilah has been a dental hygienist for over 15 years, starting her hygiene career in her home town of Longview, Washington before relocating to Vancouver over 10 years ago. She strives to always administer the best quality care to her patients while making them feel comfortable. She enjoys the personal feel of working for a small family practice allowing her to develop trusting relationships with her patients.

When Shilah is not working she enjoys spending time with her family, playing soccer, watching the Seahawks and boating.

Shauna, Dental Hygienist

Shauna graduated from the Clark College hygiene program with honors and has now been working for Dr. Pugh for over 6 years. She is quiet, but definitely not shy once you get to know her. Shauna knows her way around an ultrasonic auto-scaler, and her patients absolutely love her delicate touch.

She enjoys running and spending time at the gym, has a passion for good food and loves to read. One of her favorite things is the enthusiastic greeting she gets from her dogs when she gets home.


Staci, Dental Assistant

Staci has over 20 years of experience in dental offices, some of which was working as an assistant for Dr. Pugh a few years ago. So when Staci moved back to town Dr. Pugh already knew she would be a great fit: a team player with excellent people skills, a strong work ethic and an upbeat and friendly attitude.

Staci enjoys spending time with her family, taking care of her many dogs and outdoor activities like camping, hiking and kayaking.

Linda and Kathy, Front Office

If you want to actually hear sunshine, just call the office and one of these lovely ladies will answer.

Linda, on the left in this photo, is always smiling and you can hear it in her voice. Linda had worked with Dr. Pugh several years before coming on board, so Amy knew she was the perfect fit for the practice.

Kathy, on the right in this photo, has been a family friend of Dr. Pugh's for years. She was a dental assistant in this same office prior to Amy's arrival, and now in addition to assisting Dr. Pugh she also helps Linda in the front office.
