Dr. Ashley Starnes
I’m a native of Conyers, GA and have called Dunwoody home for the last sixteen years. My interest in dentistry started when I was in the third grade when my brother’s orthodontist put braces on my Cabbage Patch Kid! I worked in dental and orthodontic offices throughout high school and college.
With my undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia, I attended the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry, graduating in 2005. I have enjoyed practicing as a general dentist ever since! One of the things that I enjoy most about being a dentist is helping patients who are nervous about dental treatment. This doesn't have to be a scary place! I also love helping people build confidence in their smiles, whether through full reconstruction or something as simple as tooth bleaching.
I also really love interacting with people- finding out who they are and what makes them tick. I strive for everyone here to be treated as a human being and not a set of teeth. Every experience, every diagnosis, and every treatment plan is custom fit for an individual.
Outside of dentistry, I have three active boys that keep me very busy! I currently spend a lot of time helping them with Zoom school and carpooling to lacrosse. I also love sports (UGA football and Atlanta United) and pop culture (Taylor Swift and trashy TV). My favorite place is the beach, and I can't get there often enough.
