Irving Family Dentist
Dr. Ashley Bristow
Dr. Bristow is a Texas girl to the core. Growing up in Mesquite, she traveled across Texas to study at Baylor University for her undergraduate degree and to Houston at the UT School of Dentistry for her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
Why Choose Dr. Bristow
- Provider of dental implants in-house to save our patients from having to run between different offices.
- An expert at giving beautiful smile makeovers to patients with both minor and major dental problems.
- Deeply tied to the community; she frequently donates her services to the underprivileged communities in Dallas who normally don’t have access to basic dental care.
One of Dr. Bristow’s passions is volunteering her time and skills to helping others. She has been on mission trips to Mexico and Guatemala, donating no cost dental treatment to local communities in need. She has also participated in multiple of the Texas Mission of Mercy events, which provide free dental care to our veterans.
She spent time donating dental services through North Dallas Shared Ministries that provides free dental care to residents in Dallas. After only a year, the program had grown into a five-day-per-week training course for dental students that could serve a much larger population of the community.
In 2012, she led the fundraiser for 21st Century Dental to raise a donation for the Special Olympics Texas and celebrated with the organization by rappelling down the side of a 15 story building.
Dr. Bristow volunteers with Dallas CASA and is an advocate for kids who are in foster care. Her role is to meet with the kids and work with CPS to help determine the best living situation for them and advocate to reunite families.
She is also a frequent volunteer with the Crisis Ministries food pantry in Irving.
Dr. Bristow is a known animal lover, with a special place in her heart for golden retrievers. In the past she has volunteered as a foster with the Golden Retriever Rescue of North Texas. She now volunteers with the SPCA of Texas, advocating for adoption at local events and being of service at the Dallas SPCA location with day-to-day animal care.
Life Away From The Dental Office
Dr. Bristow enjoys spending time with her family, exercising (barre or yoga anyone?), traveling, and volunteering. She loves to cook and is always excited to swap recipes and discuss healthy lifestyle choices in and out of the kitchen.
She lives in the Oak Cliff/Kessler Park area with her husband, Michael, three-legged golden retriever, Blaze, and her “very bad cat,” Tigerlilly. Be ready, you’re likely to be asked to see photos of your fur babies when you’re in her chair.
