Ashley has an associate’s degree in dental hygiene from Florence-Darlington Technical College. She is certified in local anesthesia and CPR and is a Colgate Oral Health Advisor. Her experience encompasses pediatrics, a community health center, and a correctional facility. She was drawn to a career in dentistry so she could educate people on the importance of a confident, healthy smile. Her favorite aspect of dentistry is how smiles are unique to every person, much like a fingerprint. Her volunteer activities include Give Kids A Smile, America’s ToothFairy Smile Drive, Dental Access Days, and Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures. She also speaks at Career Day at Spaulding Middle School. Her favorite activities away from work include planning activities with family and friends, shopping, and decorating for small events.
