Big smiles all around!
Dr. Hudkins graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from University of Missouri-Kansas City. She went on to dental school, graduating in 2001. Following graduation, Dr. Hudkins practiced in a children’s clinic for four years in the Branson area. It was there that she realized her love for working with children, which compelled her to join in private practice with Dr. Brell in 2005. Just a year later, she created Smile Zone to provide a fun and friendly atmosphere that meets the dental needs of children and has developed into a second family. Dr. Hudkins, her husband, and three energetic young boys have called Springfield home for 19 years. Together, their family loves the lake, rock climbing, skiing and the ocean.
