Lake Forest Smiles Welcomes Dr. Tracey Hughes

Lake Forest, Lake Bluff IL

Lake Forest Smiles is proud to announce that Dr. Tracey Hughes joined our practice earlier this summer.

Hughes is a former clinical instructor at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, long considered the most prestigious institution for post-graduate dental education in North America. Her arrival in Lake Forest also means that Lake Forest Smiles has made history by having three LVI graduates together at the same practice. Dr. Douglas Campbell and Dr. David Schmidt also are LVI fellows.

“This chance to collaborate with colleagues with the same unique training is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Hughes said.

Combined, these three professionals have 55 years of training with a focus on advanced education on airway development and its impact on the development of the face, jaw joints and positions of the teeth.

Dr. Hughes graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Iowa’s College of Dentistry in 1998. She went on to complete the AEGD program at Iowa the following year, then worked as an associate dentist for two years before opening her first solo practice in Riverside, Iowa. Meanwhile, she continued to pursue continuing education, studying IV and oral sedation and receiving her certification in laser periodontal therapy.

In 2007, Hughes moved to Colorado, where she opened another practice in Louisville.

In her spare time, Dr. Hughes enjoys exploring the outdoors with her teenage son and daughter. She also is an avid cyclist.

We would like to congratulate Dr. Hughes and welcome her to our practice. We believe that, with the addition of Dr. Hughes and her expertise, Lake Forest Smiles continues to establish its commitment to providing the highest level of care possible to our patients in the areas of Lake Forest, Lincolnshire, and Lake Bluff in Illinois.
