My name is Tonya Casey.
I was born and raised in Poteau, Oklahoma where I attended and graduated from Poteau Public Schools. I also attended Carl Albert State College and received an Associate Degree.
I now live in Coalgate, Oklahoma which is my husband’s hometown. Larry and I met in the dental office where I was employed. We have been married for almost fifteen years, and together for 16.
In my free time, I enjoy a variety of interests such as reading, scrapbooking, Bible Journaling, photography and spending time with my husband.
I have been a licensed dental assistant for almost 30 years, and joined the Custom Dental Family in November of 2017 when Larry and I moved to Coalgate. I enjoy being a dental assistant and working with patients to make their visits as pleasant as possible. I hope that my part in their visit helps make them smile again and be able to leave with a positive dental experience that they will remember.
