Born and raised in Washington County, Maryland, Ashley has worked in the dental industry for over 14 years and far exceeds the definition of “hard-working.” She’s never met a task she couldn’t handle or question she couldn’t answer. She’s customer service at its finest and a welcoming presence to our practice as she’s the first smile to greet you when you visit us.
Our local Frederick-tonian, Cindy has been a part of the Frederick community for over 50 years. A hygienist for 45 years, she’s an expert in the dental field and one of the most compassionate and dedicated individuals you will ever meet.

She puts a tremendous amount of care into her work and we’re so happy to have her as part of our team!

Patton is our resident dental therapy bulldog and lovebug. He’s truly one of a kind! He truly LOVES visiting the practice, comforting fearful patients and kissing anyone that lets him. His calm, quiet, and affectionate demeanor make him a natural therapy dog and a reason to look forward to coming to the dentist! Upon request, he will happily stay with you during dental procedures, offer a friendly kiss to calm your nerves, or even sit in your lap to help ease your anxiety. Patton will make sure you’ll always leave our practice with a smile on your face!
Sherman, the “OG” or “Original” Motz family English Bulldog is first and foremost our cover model for the practice. This smooshy face has yet to meet a camera he doesn’t love! He’s a total ham! When he’s not busy at a photoshoot, Sherman enjoys being at home couch surfing or sunbathing. He frequents the office less and less; but when he does visit, you may hear him patrolling the hallway or sitting up front supervising the front desk coordinators. He runs a tight ship around here - he is a General! Now, if you feel you need a little extra love and support, he’s happy to offer up the services of his little brother Patton, our Administrator of Cuteness.
