Dr. Ashby's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ashby "John O. Ashby, DDS, MS was born and raised in Oklahoma. While studying at the University of Oklahoma, he found two great passions: his wife Rachel, a psychology graduate student from Iowa, and dentistry. He lucked into both, and they continue to bless his life. From Oklahoma, Dr. Ashby and Rachel moved to St. Louis so he could study orthodontics. In St. Louis, three wonderful things happened to their family: Dr. Ashby discovered his love for orthodontics and the challenges it presented, and he and Rachel were blessed with two children: a boy, J.T., and a girl, Elise. After working for a few years in St. Louis following residency, the Ashby family ventured east. They were drawn to the Tidewater area for a number of reasons: Rachel’s sister and best friend lives nearby, the weather is fantastic, and Dr. Owens’s honesty, kindness, and practice philosophy were a great “fit” for Dr. Ashby. Tidewater has been great for the Ashbys. They love the beach and enjoy the great weather. Dr. Ashby stays busy with work, family, and church. He maintains active membership in the American Dental Association and American Association of Orthodontists as well as serving on the craniofacial anomalies team at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters."
