Meet Dr. Ashiku

Mark Ashiku, DDS

Dr. Mark Ashiku completed his undergraduate studies at Lone Mountain College in San Francisco. He then attended the University of the Pacific Dental School (also known as the Arthur A. Dugoni Dental School), from which he graduated in 1981. He continues to pursue additional training regularly, and has completed advanced training in Bicon® implant surgical training, gnathology, orthodontics and orthopedics in dentistry. His training is primarily focused towards gnathology, which is the study of the masticatory system, including the physiology of the system, functional issues which can develop and treatment of those issues. Dr. Ashiku began his practice by joining his sister in Ukiah in 1981. Dr. Ashiku is married with two children. His wife is an artist and an inspiration to him. His eldest daughter is a bookkeeper and a mother of two, and his youngest daughter is a dental hygienist and a mother of one. Dr. Ashiku grew up milking cows, raising livestock, bucking hay, mending fences and repairing farm equipment in our small logging community of Anderson Valley. He learned how to fly planes and obtained his private pilot license at Anderson Valley High School. Aviation continues to be one of his passions. His hobbies include restoring aircraft and building experimental aircraft with his brother, Phillip, fishing, woodworking and painting with his wife. Most of all, he enjoys spending time with his grandchildren. In addition to serving the Ukiah community as a dentist, Dr. Ashiku is a former Mayor of the City of Ukiah, a former Chairman of the Airport Commission, a former Redwood Empire Dental Association board member and a current Airport Commission Member.
