Your Millersville, Maryland dentists and team at McCarl Dental Group are proud to work with our family for families in the communities we serve. In 1937, Dr. James W. McCarl opened the doors of his dental practice at the corner of Ridge and Gardenway in Greenbelt. Today, we have two office locations, and are proud that Ashley McCarl Harrison is part of our our dental hygiene team. It is wonderful to have a fourth generation of the McCarl family working in our dental office. Ashley graduated from dental hygiene school in 2013, and she worked with our team right away. In 2014 Ashley moved to New Jersey where she worked in both an adult and pediatric practice. In 2016, Ashley moved back to work in our Millersville office. Ashley works with our Millersville dental office on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Her work with our patients and dedication to lifelong learning, both for herself and for those she cares for, is an outstanding attribute to the oral hygiene services to our patients. Ashley received a Bachelor of Science from Vanderbilt University in Health and Human Services where she focused on health care in the community. In addition, Ashley earned a Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene, where she graduated in the top 10% of her class, magna cum laude from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. She was also inducted into the prestigious Sigma Phi Alpha Dental Hygiene Honor Society and the Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society.
The Importance of Oral Hygiene
One way we ensure our patients keep healthy teeth and beautiful smiles for life is by focusing on preventing common oral health conditions like tooth decay and gum disease with regular checkups and professional teeth cleanings.
Ashley loves healthy smiles, and she is dedicated to discovering and sharing new and different methods of improving patients’ oral health. Ashley was awarded the Johnson and Johnson Consumer Healthcare Award of Excellence in Research for her work with a team of students at the University of Maryland Dental School. Her research examined the effects of natural oils on oral bacteria.
