Registered Dental Assistant
Ashley is originally from the Oklahoma City metro, but grew up in Choctaw, Oklahoma. In ninth grade, she began working as a dental assistant and it was at the age of fifteen that she realized just how fulfilling a job in the dental field could be. She graduated high school in 2005 and was admitted to the University of Oklahoma to pursue an academic career that would prepare her for dental hygiene school.
While attending the University of Oklahoma, she helped launch a dental clinic at Health for Friends, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free and low-cost health care to the uninsured and underserved residents of Norman, Oklahoma. Health for Friends exemplified the type of dentistry that Ashley firmly believes in: individualized care focused on the health and well being of each patient. It is this type of patient care that Ashley is most proud to bring to Signature Dental.
Ashley is well-versed in all aspects of the dental office setting, efficiently coordinating our schedule, assisting with treatment, handling our marketing and promotions, as well as case presentation.
Ashley graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2011 with a B.A. in History. In her free time, she enjoys seeing live music, trying new restaurants, and spending time with her friends and fiance Jason. They have two dogs, Champ and Bailey, and cat named Elway.
