Dr. Ashley Davenport is the Principal Dental Surgeon and owner at Balsall Common. If you were ever to look for someone that is an embodiment of a calling in life, you wouldn’t need to look any further than Ashley.
Ashley is a dentist through-and-through. Dentistry to Ashley is more than just a career. It’s in his blood. It’s his hobby. It’s his passion. It’s the thing he was born to do:
“I qualified as a dentist in 1995 and can honestly say that I have been doing a job that I love ever since!” says Ashley.
“If I won the lottery I would still want some dentistry in my life. I get huge satisfaction from treating patients, making a difference to their smile, their health and their confidence.”
Ashley grew up locally, attending Heart of England School and after moving away during his University years and early dental career, returned to Balsall Common when he opened his own dental practice in the year 2000, when he took over the old Post Office.
“I live with my wife Cathy, who is also our Practice Manager. We have two boys, two dogs, two cats and 20 odd chickens. Whilst my boys keep the chickens, which they run as a small business selling eggs, everyone in the family knows I love those chickens. Nothing cheers me up the way those chickens do when they run to greet you at the fence every morning. It nver fails to make me laugh. If I’m not cheering my boys on the rugby field I love to be working in the garden wielding my chainsaw.”
