Dr. Kasey Santel
Dr. Kasey Santel completed his education in June of 2015 from SIU School of Dental Medicine. He is a 2006 graduate from Mater Dei High School and prior to college he worked many hours for Santel Construction realizing he wanted a career where he worked with his hands. After enjoying his biology and chemistry classes at SIU Edwardsville, dentistry became an obvious choice for him. His strong ties to the surrounding communities makes Breese a great location for his focus.

Dr. Santel finds dentistry fulfilling when he treats dental problems individuals cannot resolve on their own. His greatest thrill in dentistry is being able to relieve a person who is in pain and restore a person's ability to smile. He desires to provide care in a non-urban community and looks forward to developing his own practicing style while having a practitioner like Dr. Droege with many years of experience as a guide along the way. Outside of dentistry, Dr Santel’s hobbies include spending time with his family, reading and golf.
