Meet Dr. Ashe
Like most Montanans, I'm proud to call this state our home. I can't tell you how privileged I feel to be back in the Flathead Valley, providing dental care to the community I grew up in. My journey began when I graduated from Flathead High School in 2003. I knew then that I wanted to be a dentist, but I wouldn't find out how much I love this profession and how rewarding it can be until years later. After high school, I enrolled at Montana State University and in 2007 earned a B.S. in Biochemistry. From there, it was on to San Francisco, where I would attend the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. I accepted appointment into the Health Professions Scholarship Program, and committed to serve in the United States Navy upon graduation.
Joining the Navy was one of the best decisions I ever made. From 2011-2012 I was in a General Practice Residency at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda. There I would receive additional training in the dental specialties, and various rotations in medicine. My following tour was spent at the Naval Branch Health Clinic in Bahrain, a country in the Persian Gulf about the size of Flathead Lake! My last 3 years I enjoyed the most, at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. There I earned my Fleet Marine Force officer qualification, and would end up competing on the MCBH Shooting Team. That would eventually take me to the National Rifle and Pistol Championships at Camp Perry, Ohio. By the conclusion of my time on active duty, I received excellent training, traveled the world and made friendships that will last a lifetime.
when I'm not working
Seems like there is never a shortage of things to do in Montana. The seasons don't quite last as long as we expect them to, but there is always something to look forward to just around the corner. I like spending my time outside when I can; snowboarding, hiking, competitive shooting, fishing, hunting and camping. I even enjoy getting humbled on the golf course periodically. I also write, sing and play music on the guitar and harmonica. Hard to believe I've been playing for over 20 years!
See you Soon!
Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your health care team. It is an honor to have you as a patient at Prime View Dental. I look forward to meeting you and your families!
