Vince joined Dugas Dental in 2018 and splits time between our Lewis Center and Mt. Gilead offices.

Registered Dental Hygienist

Ali grew up in a very small town in northwest Ohio called Miller City. She is a 2016 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Dentistry where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree of Dental Hygiene and EFDA licensure. In her free time she enjoys cheering on the Buckeyes and staying active by exercising or playing sand volleyball. Spending time with her family, friends, and pets are some of her favorite things to do.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I joined the team at Dugas Dental in March of 2018 as a dental hygienist. Some of my responsibilities include cleaning and polishing teeth, taking x-rays, oral cancer screening, anesthetizing patients, placing sealants, providing periodontal gum therapy and providing oral hygiene instructions.



Registered Dental Hygienist

Ashley joined the team at Dugas Dental in September 2019.  She has been a dental hygienist since 2007 and graduated from Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio.  She is from the southern Ohio and moved to the Columbus area with her husband, Markus, after graduating.  They have two boys, Alec and Marshall, and currently live in Hilliard.


Clinical Director
I joined Dugas Dental in 2013, and have worked as both a dental assistant and a scheduling coordinator. I graduated from Worthington Kilbourne High School in 2008, where I was captain of my high school soccer team. I attended Columbus State Community College, graduating in 2011 with a certificate in Dental Laboratory Technology. Recently, I was promoted to Clinical Director for Dugas Dental & Carr Orthodontics! This means I will travel between Dugas Dental’s Mt. Gilead and Lewis Center offices, as well as between Carr Orthodontic’s Sunbury and Lewis Center offices. I will split time between assisting and managing the clinical side of both businesses.


Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary (EFDA)
I am one of Dr. Dugas’ dental assistants and joined the team in November 2015. I work side by side with Dr. Dugas and Dr. Wang to ensure efficient dental treatment and outstanding patient care. I strive to make each and every one of your dental visits pleasant. Recently, I graduated from Sinclair College’s EFDA (expanded function dental auxiliary) program. This is the highest degree a dental assistant can earn! I can now place fillings, remove orthodontic glue, place Invisalign attachments, and complete other advanced tasks. It would be my privilege to place your fillings at your next appointment!
