Philosophy of Care
"My team and I strive to give each patient individual care based on their needs; to educate each person about the status of their periodontal condition; and to inform them of their choices of care so they can make the best informed decision regarding their treatment. We work to make each person as comfortable and relaxed as possible during their care in our office."
Martha S. Cassity, D.M.D.
Dr. Martha S. Cassity, D.M.D., began her collegiate career completing a Bachelors and Masters program in Speech and Language Pathology from the University of Kentucky. She went on to attend the University of Kentucky School of Dentistry, completing a Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree as well as completing a General Practice Residency (advanced training in general dentistry).
She then practiced general dentistry for three years in Georgetown, Kentucky before returning to the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry to complete a specialty residency in Periodontics.

On a Personal Note
Dr. Cassity has two grown children, and one young granddaughter. She is an avid airplane pilot and mechanic, as well as motorcycle rider. In the summer of 2009 alone, she and her husband rode over 7,000 miles.
Nature and wildlife are another passion. Each of the patient chairs in the practice face a garden with bird feeders, so patients can share in the peaceful effects of the natural world.
