Dr. Ashley Kate Cauthen grew up in Lancaster, South Carolina as one of four daughters. She knew she wanted to help people but was not exactly sure how. So she attended The University of South Carolina and earned a degree in Exercise Science. As she prepared for graduation she felt her passion calling her to dentistry. She felt it allowed her to blend her love of art, science and helping people.
She earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina while winning the prestigious 2020 MUSC Oral Implantology Award.
Dr. Cauthen loves working with kids. She finds they have the purest hearts and their joy is contagious. She preaches to her patients: brush before bed to keep the cavities away, but brush in the morning to keep your friends near!
When away from the office, Dr. Cauthen enjoys going to the beach, exercising and traveling (she once took a 6 week solo backpacking trip throughout Europe). While she loves staying active, she also loves to curl up and read a good book.< Back to Team
