Dr. Asay’s goal is to help kids love the dentist. With extensive experience in both traditional and non-invasive techniques, she is capable of treating even the most anxious of littles.

Out of the office, you might see Dr. Asay coaching her daughter Charlotte’s soccer team or chasing her son Edward around town. As natives to Cheyenne, she and her husband Austin are grateful to be raising their family in the great state of Wyoming.
