For some strange reason many people believe black doctors, engineers, lawyers, and dentist don’t exist but we all know that’s a myth. Dr. Keith Robinson and Dr. Ashley Robinson’s photo went viral as they posed for pictures at the grand opening of The Smile Company 2 years ago. These dentists are more than just the owners of the The Smile Company, they are also husband and wife. Their viral photo made me want to reach out to learn a little more about them.
This beautiful and talented couple first met at freshman orientation in dental school but didn’t go on their first “date” until Ashley began to prepare for graduation. “It wasn’t until my senior year and his junior year that we actually started hanging out regularly, as friends. I think he saw that I was pretty stressed out trying to graduate and he invited me out to go bowling. We had our first date on Valentine’s Day 2010 and we have been together ever since.”
After graduating Dr. Ashley worked in a public health center and Dr. Keith worked in the private, public and corporate sectors of dentistry before they decided to open their own practice. Dr. Ashley Robinson was attracted to the freedom of entrepreneurship with couple starting a family she wouldn’t have to worry about the pressures the workplace puts on new moms. Dr. Keith Robinson loved the idea of ownership.
So December 7, 2010 the Robinson’s opened The Smile Company and the rest is history. The Smile Company is located at 12300 Dorsett Rd, Maryland Heights, MO and they offer services for the entire family. If you live in the St. Louis area make sure visit Dr. Robinson and Dr. Robinson at the Smile Company!
