Meet Dr. Ashley Barnes
Ashley Barnes, DDS, MS
I am so passionate about working closely with people in my community. It excites me to have the ability to change our patients’ smiles and see their confidence soar after they see their new smile. My goal each and every day is to give our patients the best care from the time they enter the practice until the time they leave. I want them to experience personalized care from our office — care that will leave them smiling!

Continuing education is a vital part of any practitioner’s career, especially that of an orthodontist. Continuing education helps me stay current with new technology and evidence-based practice.

I’m also currently enrolled in the two-year McLaughlin program.

Outside the Office
After living in Milwaukee for ten years while completing my schooling, I moved back to my hometown of Chicago to join my father at his orthodontic practice. My family currently consists of my Goldendoodle Sophie and me.
Of course, I love working side by side with my dad and having the support of my mom and brother along the way. My hobbies include camping, hiking, watching movies, cooking, and finding the newest restaurants in town.
