Laura

Office Manager & Front Desk Coordinator

Laura is the first smiling face you will see when you walk into our office and the last one when you depart. She has over 20 years of working in the dental field and is extremely knowledgeable, please feel free to ask any questions. Making patients feel comfortable is her number one goal. Her favorite part about dentistry is seeing patients’ smiles transform! Her dad always used to say “if you see someone without smiles, give them yours” and she likes to add “…or get Dr. Blankenship to make you a new one!”

She has been married to her wonderful husband since 1985 and together has grown their family which now consists of two sons, a daughter, a daughter-in-law, two granddaughters, and a great-grandson.

Laura grew up in a small town in northern Minnesota called Park Rapids. She lived in Minneapolis and now Georgia – but she is a Southern girl at heart.

After hours, Laura loves to spend time with her best friend (and hubby) Ted, and her family. She LOVES the beach and traveling. Make sure to ask her about her most recent trips when you see her.

Ashley
Our Team 8

Ashley

Registered Dental Hygienist

Ashley was raised in Henry County, Ga and currently resides in Carrollton. She graduated from West Georgia Technical College of an AAS in Dental Hygiene and continued her education at Georgia Highlands College, graduating with a Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene. She is also an Expanded Duties Dental Assistant through the State of Georgia and is a certified CPR and First Aid Instructor with the American Heart Association.

She has been married since 2001 to her husband, Brian. They have two sons, Conner and Ryder, who are both in college now, but has two cats at home to fill the void of the boys being away. Her family typically enjoys all things Georgia Bulldogs and still love spending time at the beach or adventuring to new places. Their lives are also fulfilled by supporting and volunteering with Special Olympics Georgia.

Ashley’s passion for dental health started in high school working as a dental assistant through her school’s cooperative program. It is that same passion that brought her back after years of working with foster children, special needs students, and senior citizens. She has experienced fear at the dentist and can fully relate to patients’ anxiety and anyone that doesn’t love coming to the dentist.

Ashley first met Dr. Blankenship-Sniker working at the hospital with patients who have developmental disabilities and appreciated the care and compassion Dr. Blankenship gave her patients. Upton meeting the rest of the team and patients at Market Place Dentistry, she knew this was a good fit that allowed her to continue her work at the hospital and in a private practice setting. She strives to provide a positive and welcoming experience to all her patients and considers each family and friends.

She looks forward to meeting all of you and working together to make your smiles shine!
