Ashley is originally from a small town in northern Minnesota called Bertha.  She graduated from St Cloud Technical and Community College with a license in dental assisting.  Ashley has always enjoyed going to the dentist and knows how important it is to have a pleasant experience especially in the younger years.  She is an advocate for prevention and takes great pride in helping children of all ages to learn proper brushing and flossing.  At tooth & co Ashley plays a major role in community outreach, presenting fun, interactive topics on oral hygiene and keeping the 'sugar bugs' at bay.

Being the eldest of her cousins, growing up Ashley has always been around kids, another reason why she is extra attentive and gentle with the little ones and feels very comfortable interacting with our older and wiser teenagers.  Outside of work, Ashley loves being outdoors, whether kayaking, camping or just grilling and spending time with family and friends.
