Estela V. DeCastecker, DDS “I believe everyone deserves quality dental care that is compassionate and professional. That’s why I schedule plenty of time with each patient so I can learn more about their needs and provide a comprehensive treatment plan.” – Estela V. DeCastecker, D.D.S.
A graduate of Case-Western University in 1996, Dr. DeCastecker performed a one-year residency at Metro Health Hospital and has practiced dentistry in the Mentor and Cleveland areas for over twenty years.
