We are pleased to introduce Dr. Samantha Arnold as a new dental associate at Dr. Robert T. Cassens, DMD, PC.  Dr. Arnold comes to us highly recommended by an officer of the Illinois State Dental Society and other friends of Dr. Cassens.  While Dr. Cassens undergoes treatment for his cancer diagnosis, Dr. Arnold will be providing the same high quality dentistry with compassion that Dr. Cassens’ patients are accustomed to.

Dr. Samantha Arnold was born and raised in Springfield, IL.  She graduated from Glenwood High School before attending college at Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville. She continued her education at SIU School of Dental Medicine where she received her D.M.D. in 2011.  She has practiced as a dental associate in Pana, Illinois and most recently at Central Counties Health Center in Springfield, Illinois.  She lives in Pawnee and enjoys spending time outside gardening and hanging out with her dogs Leroy and Hank.

Dr. Robert T. Cassens wants you to stay on top of your oral care and keep smiling!

We are truly grateful for the outpouring of encouragement, compassion, love and prayers we have received and continue to be blessed with since the cancer diagnosis of Dr. Robert T. Cassens. Words cannot express how meaningful your support is during this extremely difficult time; it is a source of both strength and comfort for our entire family.

We understand the importance of your continued oral care during the absence of Dr. Cassens. Should you have a dental emergency, please do not hesitate to call our office so we may provide an appropriate referral and assist in meeting your need during our temporary closure. We will do our absolute best to help you get the proper treatment from another reputable dentist in the area who shares our philosophy on patient care. All patients with appointments currently needing to be re-scheduled will be contacted by our office.

We are working on the best option available to ensure we continue to provide the same high level service our patients are accustomed to over the upcoming weeks. While we are hoping to resume most of our services by August 11th, 2020, we ask for your patience as we work through the details. We will provide additional updates via our website, email or phone.

We consider those we serve to be family and over the past week or so, it’s been proven you are exactly that! We sincerely appreciate your continued prayers and support. “Therefore encourage and comfort one another and build up one another, just as you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11 AMP
