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. She started DeCastecker Dental Specialists in 2008 so she could provide her patients with one-on-one dental care in a professional and friendly environment. Dr. DeCastecker and her staff embrace ongoing education as a key to delivering dental excellence. The latest techniques and advanced standards of care are built into all specialized and preventive services. The result? High-quality services with a personal touch rarely found in large dental practices.
Lindsay is an Office Manager working with DeCastecker Dental Specialist. She works alongside Dr. DeCastecker to make sure patients get the most out of their visit. Lindsay knows that coming to the dentist office isn’t always the most comfortable thing to do, but she strives to make patients feel relaxed when they come through the door. Whether it be by answering question about a treatment plan, helping figure out insurance processes, or simply there to greet you with a smile, she’ll walk you through whatever process necessary.
In 2014, Lindsay started her career training as a dental assistant at Fort Richardson Alaska while her husband served in the Army. Upon moving back to Ohio she was hired on as a Dental Assistant with DeCastecker Dental Specialists and fell in love with the small office feel. After about a year she started her training to help with the front office. Given the opportunity in May 2020, she moved into the office manager role.
Lindsay has a certificate in Dental Assisting, an Ohio Dental Xray license, and stays up to date with insurance, and billing changes through seminars and online training.
