Meet Dr. Kolashinski

As a dentist, I love getting to know each patient and learning about their life and interests beyond their dental needs.

I began practicing dentistry in the United States Air Force following graduation from dental school at the University of Washington in 2000. I grew up here in Spokane and knew from an early age that I wanted to work in the dental field. I appreciate the combination of science and art, and how each patient presents a unique set of challenges that we can work on together, to achieve your dental goals.

I am happy to have a family-friendly practice. It’s a good feeling to care for infants through grandparents, and even great-grandparents. I value the trust families place in us and am committed to delivering care that ensures top oral health.

The Ash & Rowan Team

We have an incredible staff at Ash & Rowan Family Dental. Each team member is skilled and devoted to patient comfort, and genuinely cares about each patient’s well-being. They treat every patient with the courtesy and respect and personal attention necessary to make each visit a great experience.

Ours is a warm, friendly dental office. New patients often mention that they’ve never laughed during a dental visit before coming to see us!

Education

  • Bachelor of Science – University of Washington, 1996
  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Washington, 2000

Dentistry, like all areas of healthcare, is constantly changing. Technological advances come to market at a dizzying speed. It is my responsibility to stay current on new options and to evaluate each one carefully, so as to select only the best for the practice.

Each year I complete many hours of continuing education: attending meetings, seminars, and lectures, along with being an active member of the Spokane Study Club. Staying up to date on new options means I’m able to serve my patients better, and provide a treatment experience and results that have them smiling!
