Ashya was raised here in Alamosa and graduated from AHS. After high school she moved to Pagosa Springs where she lived for three years but happened to find her way back home!

She regards education as a high standard and shortly after working in the field of dentistry she received her dental assisting degree from Stradford Career Institute. Ashya enjoys every part of being a dental assistant! Her favorite part is getting to know new people and being able to help them. Ashya also enjoys camping, hunting and just being outdoors with her husband Jose and her two beautiful daughters Tanaya and Taliya.

Deedra Gray

I was born and raised in Conejos, CO. I graduated from Centauri High School and fell in love with the dental field after trying out a few courses through TSJC and later enrolling in their dental assisting program. I like to spend my free time with my family or in the mountains either hunting, fishing, camping, snowmobiling, or just taking a ride to enjoy the scenery. My favorite part about dental assisting is building the relationship with our patients and knowing we are making a difference in their lives.

Coming from Manassa Colorado, Shannon is a class of 2021 high school graduate looking to further expand her experience in the dental hygiene field! Shannon loves interacting with people and treating them kindly. She’s set to receive her Associates of Arts degree from Adams State University this May! She will then look into other schools to start her official career as a dental hygienist from here.
