CASPER, Wyo — Cassity Dental Arts has been a fixture of South Center street for over 8 years. It’s an area of town that Dr. Jessica Cassity knows well. A Casper native, she attended Park Elementary, Dean Morgan Junior High, Natrona County High School, and Casper College. She would go on to earn her Bachelor’s at UW/CC as well — a lifetime’s worth of schooling all within a 10 block radius.
Jessica recalled that as a girl she always dreamed of being an artist. She would later merge the strong background in science she inherited from her father, a former professor of Biology at Casper College, with her childhood desire to create by opening her own practice dedicated to the art of Dentistry.
When she graduated 16 years ago, Jessica states that there were very few women practicing in the field. This resulted in limited options for individuals, such as other women, who may be looking for a female provider. While she believes things have changed since then and more women have felt empowered to earn their doctorate in a typically male-dominated field, she continues to strive to provide a comfortable space for all.

“A lot of folks get anxious or nervous about having dental work done, so we try really hard to make this space as welcoming and comfortable as possible. The idea is that it doesnt feel so cold and clinical, but is instead more modern and relaxing”, she says.
Rigid, uncomfortable waiting room chairs are replaced with comfy sofas. Bright, colorful pictures decorate the brick walls. Several procedure rooms have large windows to the street that fill the office with natural light, yet protect the modesty of patients with their one-way mirror quality. Nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas”, is also available in all the rooms should patients need it.
In a time when many are being forced to lay off staff, Jessica instead hired on two additional employees for the sole purpose of sterilizing equipment and assisting with the check-in process by screening patients for coronavirus symptoms. The entire staff wears masks and the office surfaces are all disinfected at regular intervals during the day.
“The increased regulations are certainly challenging, but we are finding ways to go above and beyond to help our patients feel as safe and secure as possible while they are here. We dont want anyone to be afraid to go to the dentist.”
