She settled in San Diego where she owned a highly successful private practice in the Carmel Valley/Del Mar area for many years. She also enjoyed working with a non-profit organization providing dentistry to underserved populations in Southern California.

As a dentist, Dr. Plue is committed to providing treatment in a respectful, gentle and caring manner. She enjoys the transformation that quality dentistry can make in a patient's life. Dr. Plue grew up outside of Kansas City and her family often spent time camping and hiking in New Mexico, sparking her love for the Land of Enchantment. She is delighted to begin her new adventure here in Las Cruces, serving her patients and our incredible community, soaking up all the art, culture, and beauty our state has to offer.
