Dr. Casperino wanted to be dentist since grade school. Her child hood dentist was frightening and would threaten to use gas on her if she didn’t sit still and be quiet. She remembers on the way home, after those visits, how unnecessary it was for him to treat her in such a fashion. At that point Dr. Casperino decided that she wanted to become a dentist and treat people with care and understanding their fears.
In addition, Dr. Casperino has always enjoyed all forms of artistic creativity and has been able to implement them into her dental skills. Dr. Casperino feels the first feature people notice about you is your smile, making it a very important aspect of your appearance. Whether you prefer straight white teeth or a characterized interesting smile, this says who you are. Her goal is to give patients what they are looking for and make them feel good about themselves.
Dr. Casperino received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Fairleigh Dickenson University in Teaneck, New Jersey. She graduated in three years on top of her class. While there, she was asked to participate in experimental studies in hope of discovering medicines to aid in the fight against cancer.

While in dental school, Dr. Casperino received a Certificate of Merit in Pediatric and Prosthetic Dentistry and maintained a 3.8 grade point average. Dr. Casperino is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and Seattle Study Group.

Dr. Casperino has been in practice for over 25 years and enjoys the aesthetic aspect of her practice. She enjoys performing cases which include multiple aspects of dentistry. Many patients complain of an uneven gum line, in other words, some or one of their front teeth is longer due to the gum being recessed. Implementing her Invisalign skill enables Dr. Casperino to even the gum line without having to perform gum surgery.

She participates in all aspects of Continuing Education including restorative materials, implants, porcelain veneers, crowns and braces.

Her motto is that technology is always changing to improve the outcome of treatment and comfort. Making it important to move forward with it.
