The tooth fairy will have a new stop to make at The Verber Dental Group’s new Cumberland Valley Pediatric Dentistry opening May 2021.
The $1.5 million project is a new interactive children’s dental office at 201 St. John’s Church Rd in Hampden Township. The facility, housed in a former bank building, will include 8 state of the art dental suites along with interactive spaces for kids to enjoy. A tooth fairy booth with deposit tubes, a tooth vault, and a photo wall will be part of the tooth “banking” fun.
Inspired by the struggle many young patients experience in finding specialized dental care in the area, the practice is the latest effort by the Verber Dental Group to build a local dental health system.
“Dentistry has traditionally been a cottage industry. This fragmented landscape has presented challenges to patients who need interdisciplinary care, specialized attention, or advanced technology. CVPD is an important addition to our integrated network because it allows our doctor-owned practices to provide the youth in our community with more access to high-quality dentistry,” says Verber Dental Group CEO Dr. Michael Verber.
The office will open in May 2021 to kids of all ages. Dr. Jacqueline Caster, a Mechanicsburg native, will be the managing dentist.
“As a pediatric dentist, I am looking forward to providing extraordinary dental care to children in the community in which I grew and making a positive impact in the lives of my patients,” said Dr. Jacqueline Caster.
Dr. Caster attended Trinity High School in Camp Hill and furthered her education by earning her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Duquesne University Mylan School of Pharmacy in Pittsburgh. She then attended Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in Glendale, Arizona earning her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. After graduation, Dr. Caster went on to complete a General Practice Residency at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois where she discovered her passion for providing dental care to children as well as medically complex patients. She completed her pediatric dentistry residency program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine while serving as chief resident her last year.
