    Dental Assistant

    Casie is one of our talented dental assistants here at Gentle Dental Care. Her kind words and gentle hands will help you feel at ease during your next dental appointment. Casie is especially passionate about the benefits of sedation dentistry. She loves seeing anxious patients finally able to get the dental care they need thanks to the help of sedation!

    When she isn’t making your appointment more comfortable, Casie enjoys spending time with her family and all of her pets. She enjoys traveling, celebrating her heritage, kickboxing, archery, boating, and swimming!

    Dental Assistant

    Tarah has been assisting Dr. Peltzer since 2012. Her 11 years of experience combined with a real love of dentistry and technology give her an edge in the dental field. Her compassion, patience, and attention to detail will make your next appointment much more enjoyable! She loves helping our patients see the importance of having a healthy mouth, and she knows that sometimes sedation is needed to help that anxious patient come in.

    One of Tarah’s favorite things about working at Gentle Dental Care is seeing fearful patients transform into happy and confident patients! When she is not here helping you have a better experience, she is spending time with her three sons. She enjoys physical activity and going to the beach.
