Dr. Ashley Patnoe has traveled a winding path through, beyond and back to West Virginia. She was born and spent several of her childhood years in Morgantown, WV. Richmond, VA was briefly home to Dr. Patnoe before her family moved to Charleston, WV in 1980.
From the age of 12, Dr. Patnoe spent a great deal of her spare time working in her father’s endodontic practice. Although she admired the skills and artistry that he developed as a dentist – in a career spanning over 42 years, and counting – Dr. Patnoe never imagined that she would one day choose to follow in his footsteps.
After graduating from Charleston’s George Washington High School in 1989, Dr. Patnoe entered undergraduate studies at West Virginia University. Although she expected to graduate as a teacher, Dr. Patnoe decided to enter WVU’s dental school. She emerged a dentist, and then completed her residency studies at The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. Upon completion of her academics, she remained in Michigan for 3 1/2 years, working as a pediatric dentist in a large practice in Rochester Hills, MI.
Feeling the need to return to her hometown, Dr. Patnoe chose to plan, build and open her own pediatric practice in Charleston, WV. Since opening her office on November 3, 2003, Dr. Patnoe has welcomed patients from a diverse population in and around Charleston.
Dr. Patnoe describes herself and the members of her office team as “committed to the oral health of the children I take care of, and I strive to meet all of their growing needs. I’m always pushing myself and my staff to improve our service to our community.”
Her family, consisting of her husband, son and daughter, share Dr. Patnoe’s love of West Virginia, and take advantage of all the state has to offer, including hiking and snow skiing. She also shares her enjoyment of movies, cooking and (especially) reading with her family.
And she is immensely happy that her journey continues in West Virginia.
