Katerina Ashland, DMD
Dr. Ashland first became a dentist in Europe in 1999. After moving to the US, she came to work at this very office. During this time, she was encouraged her to return to dental school so that she could again practice dentistry here in the United States. She graduated from the UConn School of Dental Medicine and went on to complete a residency program at VCU in Richmond, Virginia. While practicing at a busy and prestigious practice in Lynchburg VA, Dr. Ashland realized how much she missed the charm of New England. She decided to move back home to Connecticut. Whether by chance or destiny, she was given the exciting opportunity to own and practice the very same office where her journey began.
Dr. Ashland is guided by the simple philosophy of treating each patient as if they were a member of her own family. She is gentle, compassionate and dedicated to caring for her patients’ dental needs and concerns. She looks forward to providing the community excellent dental care for many years to come. Dr. Ashland would like to invite you all to stop in and visit her newly renovated practice.
