Shelby Swenson

Shelby just recently joined Hughes Dental and is very excited to be here and meet all our patients. She has been in the dental field since 2016. Shelby started as a dental assistant and slowly transitioned to the business side. She loves all things dentistry. Shelby grew up in the Pacific Northwest and moved to Minnesota in 2016 to be with her husband, Eric. She loves all animals, especially her pets, Link (the cat), and Zelda (the dog). When Shelby is not at the office you can find her on a walk with Zelda, spending time with her family, or traveling and adventuring!
