Dr. Ashwini Joshi (Dr. Ash)


A second generation orthodontist, Dr. Ash aspired to be an orthodontist and follow in her father’s footsteps since the young age of six years. Growing up in India, Dr. Ash completed dental school in Mumbai and orthodontic residency in the southern state of Karnataka. After graduation, she also passed the qualifying examination for membership to the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh (MOrthRCS)

Dr. Ash decided to complete a one year fellowship in Craniofacial Orthodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago and landed in the US. Her career path led her to stay back and complete a two year program for internationally trained dentists at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. Her passion for orthodontics led her to complete a second residency in Orthodontics also at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. She is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, a distinction held by a small percentage of orthodontists practicing in the US.

Her academic interests have led her to complete advanced research projects. Upon graduation, Dr. Ash was also awarded the prestigious Milo Hellman Research Award, which is the top honor given by the American Association of Orthodontics, for her Master’s Thesis.

Dr. Ash has to her credit several presentations at National and International level conferences and publications in peer reviewed journals. She was indicted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) Dental Honor Society upon graduation.

Dr. Ash practiced in Chicago for ten and a half years and decided to move to Austin to be close to family. She brings with her several years of experience in treating simple and complex cases with metal and clear braces. She is also certified in clear aligner treatment with Invisalign. She has also worked with specialists in other dental fields with multidisciplinary and surgical cases.
