Dr. Seth Huish


As a boy, Dr. Huish chipped his tooth and was impressed by the kindness and helpfulness of his dentist. That experience helped Dr. Huish discover his passion for dentistry and inspired Dr. Huish to devote himself to becoming an outstanding dentist.

He attended high school in Park City, Utah, and received his undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University-Hawaii on the island of Oahu. Dr. Huish completed his dental training at the Oregon Health & Science University and furthered his dental education with post-graduate studies in implantology. He also received continuing education in endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, and orthodontics.

Dr. Huish married his high school sweetheart and is the father of four girls. 

“I’m outnumbered,” he jokes. 

He enjoys snow and water skiing, biking, running, hiking, and family time. He loves to travel and serve. He has traveled to Mexico to participate in the Mission of Mercy.

Dr. Huish loves learning and teaching as a dentist. He learns from his co-workers and patients daily and likes helping others become educated so that they can improve their oral health.

Dr. Huish has lived in Washington, Alabama, Utah, Texas, Hawaii, Austria, and Germany. He even speaks fluent German! However, he and his family were quite happy to settle down here, and they love the area.

As your Salem dentist, Dr. Huish looks forward to meeting you and serving you with quality care at Salem Dental.
