Helping Patients Smile
Ashley, Office Manager
As our office manager, Ashley is the person who greets patients when they first walk through the door and ensures that every aspect of the practice runs smoothly, from scheduling appointments to submitting insurance claims. Originally from the Bronx, she has been working in this field for 15 years and counting. She loves the staff she works with here at the practice and thinks Dr. Newman is absolutely amazing with the patients, helping them feel at home and very relaxed. She believes Gramercy Dental Studio is the perfect fit for her because she truly loves helping people and offering advice to those with dental needs. She’ll always do her best to help them make great decisions moving forward!
When she has free time, spending it with family always comes first for Ashley. She takes good care of her teenager daughter, doing things like cooking, shopping, and plenty of girl talk. She’s also in the process of adopting a dog or cat soon! Her other hobbies include doing hair and nails – she actually has her cosmetology license.
