Ashley moved to Norfolk, VA from Florida in 2015 with her husband, Mikel and puppy Mister Chopes and joined our practice shortly thereafter.
Patient’s often ask Ashley why she became a Dental Hygienist:
When Ashley was younger, she did not have the best home-care and didn’t understand the need to floss! During a dentist appointment, while she was in high school, her Dentist suggested she become a Dentist herself. Ashley laughed and couldn’t imagine herself being a Dentist with the amount of restorative treatment she needed, due to home-care neglect. That same day, she set a goal to become a Dental Hygienist in order to educate patients on keeping a healthy mouth and prevent her patients from making the same mistake of neglect as she did. Now, Ashley has been practicing as a Dental Hygienist since she graduated from Pensacola State College in Pensacola, Florida. So no need to fear, Ashley has been through the same experiences you have and you will not be disappointed with her non-judgmental and sweet demeanor!
Ashley’s continuing goal is to give her patients the best care by providing her patients with thorough periodontal evaluation and recommended hygiene treatment. She is very helpful with individual customization of the best home-care recommendations and solutions as well as thoroughly educating you in all aspects of your dental hygiene.
