Vilija Pakalniskis Hudson, DMD
Dr. Hudson is committed to providing her patients with exceptional care in a relaxed, friendly environment. She strives to foster supportive relationships with her patients so they can achieve and maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. She takes her time to educate patients on their oral health and treatment needs, and will make sure that all your questions are answered before you leave the office.
Since she was a little girl, Dr. Hudson has wanted to be a dentist, but she also grew up with a strong passion for art. She attended the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking and Art History.
After graduation Dr. Hudson realized that dentistry was as much of an art as it is a science, and went on to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a dentist. Dr. Hudson received her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA.
She truly finds joy in the precision and artistry that is required to achieve excellent clinical results in dentistry. She also understands that dentistry is a constantly evolving field, and regularly attends numerous professional continuing education courses and seminars to stay current in her profession.
More about Dr. Hudson
Dr. Hudson was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and spent much of her childhood growing up within the Lithuanian community there. It was in Chicago that Dr. Hudson met her husband, Patrick, who was a resident physician at the time. Since Patrick is a fourth generation Eugenian, it only made sense for the two of them to move to Eugene after completing his residency! Dr. Hudson has been living in Eugene for almost two years now and loves her new home and the spectacular nature that surrounds it. You can find her exploring the wilderness at any opportunity with her husband Patrick, and their two dogs Wally and Cody.

"Without a doubt the best dental office I've ever been a patient of. The dentists and their hygienists are all very friendly and knowledgable, and they do their best to make you as comfortable as possible. I haven't tried other dentists in Eugene, but I know I'm not alone in my opinion here… definitely recommend!" ~ Timothy
"Dr. Vivona was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn't be happier with my experience. While I wish I didn't need dental work, my experience with her has been great. She takes her time to make sure she's properly diagnosing. While doing the work, she was gentle, thorough and explained everything along the way, making sure I was comfortable. I highly recommend her" ~ Audrey
"I was greeted as I was walking in the door by two wonderful assistants. The hygienist was wonderful and encouraging through the whole exam. Over all the staff is the best I’ve encountered through dental and would recommend Dr. Vivona to anyone looking for quality and gentle care." ~Kimmi
