About The Doctor

A philosophy of quality, commitment and compassion: “As an experienced dentist, I know that your oral health and the appearance of your smile depend on my commitment; commitment to the finest details, your individual needs, and to top-quality results that enhance your appearance and confidence.

My goal as a dentist is to provide you not only with high-quality dentistry, but also to never compromise on integrity, ethics or anything else. To achieve this, I strive to develop a relationship with you based on trust and confidence. “I believe that personal dedication and genuine caring are what make it possible for me to fulfill your needs to your highest level of satisfaction.”

Dr. Ascough specializes in general and cosmetic dentistry for children, teens and adults. Her love and passion for dentistry drives her to improve her patient’s smile and well-being.She has more than 20 years of experience and has received advanced training at UCLA in Esthetic Dentistry.  “I’ve always had artistic tendencies, and it was a natural fit for me to use them to enhance the appearance of my patients’ smile. After all, a beautiful smile can have a dramatic impact on a person’s life. My objective as a dentist is to not only ensure you have a healthy mouth, but also to create harmony between how you look and how you feel.”

Her commitment is to provide you with high quality dental care in a friendly, comfortable, and fun environment. Dr. Ascough is one of the few dentists in the San Diego area to be fully trained and licensed to perform Laser Periodontal Therapy known as Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). The addition of this laser technology is perfectly aligned with her vision to offer her patients less invasive procedures to minimize discomfort and to speed up recovery time.
