Meet Dr. Ashmore
Dr. Casey is the driving force behind Dental Express. Inspired by over a decade of practicing dentistry in the Midwest before moving to California in 2014, Dr. Casey sought to establish a family-friendly practice in San Diego that was accessible, inviting, and affordable to all people. He wanted to cultivate an environment where patients could expect honest care and honest treatment. No sales; no gimmicks; no hidden costs. Dental Express was born from that vision. He strives to cultivate an environment in which Dental Express doctors and employees are empowered to always do the right thing for their patients and establish enduring relationships with staff and patients alike.
Specialties and Expertise
Dr. Casey is proud that Dental Express is a one-stop shop that meets patients' dental needs. Dr. Casey loves helping his patients, and he loves the challenge that oral surgery presents. He is extremely gifted at performing cosmetic, general, and restorative dental procedures, such as implants, root canals, veneers, tooth extractions, and periodontal care. In addition, he always keeps the patient’s pocketbook in mind, and in 2017, he pioneered an in-house aligner system, SmileCorrect. Now, Dr. Casey leads a team of over one dozen doctors to provide dental care to thousands of families throughout San Diego.
In 2005, Dr. Casey graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry. At Baylor College of Dentistry, he perfected his skills and learned how to incorporate patient-centered dental care into his practices. After graduating, he helped grow a large general dentistry practice in the Midwest. Dr. Casey now leads the team at Dental Express and enjoys training doctors and clinical staff about the intricacies and technical aspects of dentistry. He also prides himself on striving to ensure that every patient has a wonderful dental experience and making his staff members feel excited about each new workday.
People always ask if Dr. Casey is a train aficionado with all of the train-themed offices. While he loves to travel by train or boat, aviation is his greatest passion. A licensed pilot since college, he has flown everything from single-engine crafts to jets. Dr. Casey has flown from coast to coast and enjoys the freedom the sky affords.
When his feet are planted on the ground, he loves to golf with his eleven-year-old son or cook with his seven-year-old daughter. He brought a touch of the Oklahoma BBQ spirit to San Diego and his daughter remains his greatest apprentice chef. Dr. Casey is an avid trivia player and loves a challenge ever since his college days at Oklahoma University!
While Dr. Casey professionally embraces the motto “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it”, he is a problem-solver at heart. Whether it’s building a kit airplane or finding the best remedy to a problem in a patient’s mouth, Dr. Casey’s commitment to engineering the best solution to the problem at hand makes him an ally to all.
"Dr. Casey and all of his staff are fast, friendly and do a great job! This is by far the best dentist office I've been to."
"This place rocks! That is a very rare thing to hear about a Dentist but it really does. I am someone who has always been afraid of the dentists. Ever since I was a little kid I have had a terrible dental history and have always hated every dentist I have been too. But this place truly is a gem. Everyone is extremely nice and welcoming there. You can always get an appointment at the time you want. Dr. Ashmore is awesome and always sensitive to my needs. The place is decorated a little weird but at least is not plain boring like a normal dental office. And they are always willing to help me with my insurance and work with me. I have been going here since it opened and I don't think I will ever go anywhere else again."
"I've been seeing Dr. Casey for about 3-4 years, ever since I moved to Point Loma. The team here is fantastic. I'm always out in 45 minutes or less for your typical cleaning (compared to other dental offices that take 2+ hours). I love that they keep up to date on technology and have enough hygienists to ensure that you are seen promptly. I never mind my Saturday morning cleanings now. I don't dread it at all. If I ever leave Point Loma, I will ALWAYS come back to Dental Express. It's just that good."
"I'm going to miss this place. Unfortunately I have to switch due to insurance reasons but my experience with Dental Express has been nothing but a pleasure. The staff is friendly and they all get along with each other. They seem pretty young, but the quality of work is still excellent. The energy in the office is good. I don't know what it's like to work under Doctor Casey but his employees seem happy and they've done a great job on all of the work I've had there. The staff is very knowledgeable, from insurance, to the hygienists, to the dentists. They were very clear about what they were doing and how to take care of my teeth afterwards. My teeth and gums are in better shape than they've ever been. This is the first time I had a dentist my age (26). I forget his name, he is no longer there, but he left to go back to school for training on dental implants. He gave me a crown on my back molar that feels just like my old tooth. Even when I floss, it feels completely natural. Thanks for everything Dental Express! If I can, I'll return to you guys in the future."
"I just want to say that these guys are great! My whole family has been going here for a year or so...I have a lot of issues with my teeth that need attention and they did the best they could and when I wasn't happy they address my situation quickly and fairly. The office manager is fantastic! Doctor Casey stands by his work and I respect that!"
