Ashley enjoys working at Chase Patton DDS, because she appreciates how everyone is “team-oriented” and like “a big family. She credits this environment to Dr. Patton’s leadership, and his careful attention to ensure all staff is supported. In turn, Ashley said this close-knit group works hard but also has lots of fun.
Ashley enjoys getting to know each patient on a personal level, catching up with them on their lives at every visit. She loves seeing patients get excited about improvements in their oral health, and in their results from treatment.
When she isn’t catching up with patients on the job, Ashley is traveling and hanging out with friends and family, including her amazing husband and two children. Her family is adventurous; they stay active with camping, biking, and hiking.
Tricia also brings a vast wealth of experience to the practice. Having started off in the industry as a dental assistant 27 years ago, working with previous ownership, Dr. Russell, the knowledge Tricia acquired about services and techniques then affects the many tasks that take place in the operatory setting today. And, even though she has known most of the practice’s patients for a long time, Tricia likes that there is always something new going on in their lives (and patients are genuinely interested in hearing about the latest in her life, too).
When Tricia is not in the office, being consistently amazed by the difference treatments make in a person’s smile and confidence, she is out and about with her family. You can catch her outside of the office -- camping, hunting, and riding bikes.
Outside of the office Alicia can be found either at the softball field watching her daughter play or at the basketball court watching her son play.
I love teaching patients about their oral health and the link between oral health and the rest of their body. Helping patients find alternative home care tools, therapies or methods that work best for that patient and seeing them achieve success and improvement in their oral health is my fav!
I graduated from UMKC Dental Hygiene School in May of 2021 and have been practicing in Columbia since. My presence in a dental office started long before my degree. My mother works as a dental assistant in my hometown and I started shadowing and working part time in that office in high school. I knew early on the dental field was where I belonged.
Outside of the office, I enjoy going to the lake of the Ozarks with my family and friends and hanging out with my dog Hank.
I am honored that my patients trust me with their dental care. Sometimes the dental office can be stressful for my patients, but we work through the appointment together and everyone wins in the end. That’s when true and honest relationships happen.
I started as a pediatric dental assistant in 2003, then went to dental hygiene school in 2006.
I love to be with my family the most. My husband and our two children keep us busy. I like to travel and be outside.
