About Us

Dr. Joel Casler


I am passionate about dentistry and keeping up with the latest technology to make dental work as enjoyable as possible for my patients. My goal is to educate and empower my patients to take control of their dental health.

Education and Continuing Education

· Bachelor of Arts in Biology – University of Texas at Austin

· Doctorate of Dental Surgery – Baylor College of Dentistry

· General Practice Residency – UTHSC at Houston, Hermann Hospital


While my formal education in dentistry provided me with a strong foundation of knowledge and experience, I also regularly participate in continuing education to stay current with advances in techniques and materials. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide my patients with more options and better results.

I am also a member of several professional associations that provide me with several opportunities for continuing education throughout the year, including the Seattle Study Club and the Spear Study Club.

Marissa Palacio

Dental Hygienist

I have been working alongside with Dr. Casler for more than a year now. I have been cleaning teeth for 4 years and have been interested in the dental field ever since I was in braces at 14 years old. My goal is creating an enjoyable and safe place to come in for your dental cleanings. Outside the office I like to go on weekend getaways and go off-roading in my Jeep.
