The Dental Team That Cares About You

Our Dedicated Dental Team

Julie Lesher, Dentist

Julia Lesher, Dentistry on Vine, Hudson WIIn 1992, when Dr. Lesher purchased a small dental practice in Hudson, Wisconsin, she could not have imagined everything Dentistry on Vine would become. She is blessed with a talented staff who gives 100% every day and patients who trust them to give the best care possible. If anyone had told her that days at the office would be sprinkled with laughter and genuine kindness, she would not have believed them. And yet, here we are.

So much about dentistry has changed over the years — all for the better. Staying current with techniques and technology has been challenging and rewarding as it has pushed Dr. Lesher to be curious and to continue on the never-ending journey of learning. She currently attends educational programs offered by the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and by other local specialty offices. She is a member of Spear Education, traveling to their campus for seminars/workshops and attending monthly small group study club meetings.

When Dr. Lesher isn’t working, she enjoys spending time at her family cabin, working in her gardens, and playing with her crazy dog McHugh! Dr. Lesher lives in Hudson with her husband, Mike, and son, Patrick. She enjoys traveling to visit their daughter, Mary.

Our Patients Are Talking!
“I miss them! I moved away and have not been able to find a dentist and staff of the caliber of Dr. Lesher and her wonderful staff. The appointment times are convenient, the staff is kind and caring and Dr. Lesher has provided me and my family with skilled, forward-thinking and professional care…all that makes me want to travel 1500 miles back to her office!”
– Mary S.
“Caring, patient staff. Appreciate a hometown feel to the practice — makes it comfortable, relaxed, and a medical appointment I actually look forward to! Thank you;)”
