    Dr. Gary Ashton



    Dr. Gary Ashton earned his degree from the Medical College of Virginia, School of Dentistry.

    After graduating, he moved to Leesburg, Virginia and opened the doors to Cardinal Park Family Dental Care in the fall of 1999. In the first few months of business, he and his wife Stacy canvassed the community with toothbrushes and the appointment book introducing themselves to their new neighbors and scheduling new patient appointments to anyone who was in need of a dentist.

    Dr. Ashton quickly established himself in the area as a kind and honest dentist and has remained a positive fixture in the dental health of the Leesburg community for the last 2 decades. He has many patients who have moved out of the area and yet still travel many miles back to Leesburg for their dental needs.

    From restorative procedures, Dental Implants, Invisalign®, and Sleep Apnea treatments, Dr. Ashton stays on the cutting edge of technology and advancements, both in dental equipment and patient care. His goal for each patient that walks through the door to receive the highest quality care in a comfortable environment. It is because of these traits that he has been awarded the “Best of Loudoun” for six consecutive years. He’s also an active member of several professional organizations, including:

    • American Dental Association
    • Academy of General Dentistry
    • Psi Omega Dental Fraternity

    Additionally, Dr. Ashton has a passion for service that reaches beyond his dental practice into the community. He volunteers at his church and provides dental services for people in need through a local charity, Tree of Life Ministries. Dr. Ashton also volunteers a week of his summer every year to provide dental care to impoverished countries, such as Haiti and Honduras.

    Dr. Ashton currently lives in Leesburg with his wife Stacy and their three children.
