Dr. Ashley Soliman
The Professional Side
Dr. Ashley was raised in a large family in Southern California. She discovered her love of working with kids through tutoring and volunteering at an early age for the local YMCA. Drawn to improving people’s lives, Dr. Ashley found dentistry while exploring emergency work and looking for her home in healthcare. She loved the satisfaction of being able to relieve pain, broaden smiles, and improve people’s lives so quickly. However, pediatric dentistry became her passion when she realized that by creating healthy habits for children now, she would set them up for success later in life.
Being a team player is Dr. Ashley’s #1 goal, working with her patients and assistants to make every visit the best visit possible. She goes beyond treating just a mouth by being aware of the entirety of her patients and striving to make each appointment fun. Dr. Ashley wants her patients to look forward to the dentist and erase any fears of the dentist being scary.
Through her tireless work effort, Dr. Ashley interned every week of her undergraduate for all four years and graduated with a B.S. in Biology from U.C. Riverside. She also received a Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of the Pacific, a Masters in Public Health from Harvard, and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study from Boston University. Dr. Ashley will be receiving her Masters of Public Health in May 2022.
The Personal Side
Staying true to her southern California roots, Dr. Ashley tries to soak up the sun whenever possible. She loves going to the beach and when she was a kid, used to convince her peers that she was a mermaid. Her favorite animal, a penguin, is also an ocean dweller and the way they waddle around makes her laugh.
When she isn’t laying in the sand, Dr. Ashley enjoys spending time with her new kitten Mango, playing video games, riding her pink electric bike around town, and having dinner with friends. She lives for long naps and is always looking for new Mexican restaurant recommendations.
