Dr. Guerrino was born and raised in Westchester, NY where she attended Iona College and received a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry. While she attended college, she worked as a dental assistant in her Uncle’s dental offices in New York. This great opportunity sparked her interest in a career in dentistry.
Dr. Guerrino then moved to Charleston, SC where she attended the Medical University of South Carolina for dental education. During her studies at MUSC, she decided to provide dental care to underserved populations by volunteering in free clinics around Charleston, and participating in mission trips to countries such as Burundi, Africa and Jamaica.
She then attended the University of Florida for her residency where she received extra training in advanced general dentistry, which included one year of implant training in addition to occlusion courses with The Dawson Academy. She is recognized as a fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry.
Dr. Guerrino is excited to provide exceptional dental care to the Stuart and Jupiter while also making it a comfortable and positive experience.

Hi, I’m Ashley! I recently moved from Missouri and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to settle into. I have been in the dental field for a total of 5 years and I absolutely love my job. I enjoy building relationships with each and every patient while also having the opportunity to educate and help them improve their oral health. When I’m not at the office, I enjoy being a beach bum, riding my road bicycle, and exploring the area discovering new places to eat and hang out. Recommendations are ALWAYS welcomed and appreciated!
