ABOUT US

Dr. Ashy

Dr. Mark Ashy has always felt a special connection to his hometown in Orlando, Florida, where he first discovered his interests in math, science, and working with people. He attended Orlando West Orange High School, and with a Valencia scholarship he accomplished a pre-med undergraduate degree in Nutritional Science from the University of Florida. He earned his degree in dentistry from the University of Florida College of Dentistry.

“Nutritional science has a huge connection with our health, translating who we are based on all aspects of our wellbeing. As a family dentist it helps me understand how things work in the body, and when patients come in with unusual symptoms, they can get the special attention they need.”

After opening Elite Dentistry in 2005, Dr. Ashy has enjoyed raising his family with his wife, their twin girls, and their son, the youngest in the family. As a local family dentist in Avalon Park, he enjoys bringing family values into the office, where each patient can feel welcome to come over and have a soothing, friendly experience.

“One of the things I enjoy most about what we do here, is when we see kids, and then ten, maybe twelve years later–you’ll pop that picture in front of them of their very first visit and say, ‘Hey, I remember this little guy!’”

Year after year, Dr. Ashy has had the fortune to get to see his patients change and grow. When he’s not in the office, you’ll find him spending quality time with his own growing family! He’s proud to be the neighborhood dentist you can bring your family to.
