2021: A Year of Hope and Growth With Dr. Robert T. Cassens and Staff!

As we all know, 2020 brought many challenges to our community, and in the face of it all, Dr. Robert Cassens was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. While Dr. Rob will continue to practice, changes to his schedule have been and continue to be necessary for him to receive required medical care. Over the last few months, we have been in the process of determining the best path forward for the practice, and we sincerely appreciate everyone's continued support, encouragement and patience.

It is with great enthusiasm and confidence we announce Dr. Ashley Nowdomski is joining Robert  T. Cassens, DMD, PC as a Full-Time Associate effective January 18, 2021. As Dr. Nowdomski has been in the office part-time for the past few months working alongside Dr. Cassens, some of you may have already met her; however, below we have shared some additional information about Dr. Ashley to assure our patients of her capability and compatibility with our practice standards.

We are extremely grateful for all of the support, encouragement and prayers for Dr. Rob and our family. While Dr. Cassens will continue to undergo treatments, thus far he has had no complications and has received encouraging updates from his physicians. We are hopeful that God will continue to pour his blessings upon us all as the new year unfolds!

Robert T. Cassens and Family



Dr. Ashley Nowdomski was born and raised on the south side of Chicago and received her undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside where she played collegiate softball while obtaining her Bachelor Degree in Biological Sciences. She continued her education at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine where she was recognized for outstanding achievement in Operative Dentistry and received her Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree. Dr. Nowdomski began her career practicing in St. Louis, MO prior to moving to Central Illinois. For the past year and a half, Dr. Ashley has been practicing dentistry in Decatur and since early October, also practicing as available in our office in Virden.

Clearly, Dr. Ashley is qualified, but equally important is the pride she takes in delivering excellent general dental care in her community. Dr. Ashley is not only driven by a passion to ensure her patients are healthy, but also enjoys connecting with her patients and providing a comfortable and caring dental experience. Dr. Nowdomski also takes great joy in traveling on dental mission trips to bring dental care to communities in need. When not practicing dentistry, her interests include discovering new restaurants, cooking, playing piano and spending time with family and friends. We'll let Dr. Ashley share in person whether she's a Cubs or Cards fan, knowing either way you will receive excellent care!
