Meet Our Doctors
Meet Dr. Cashin
Dr. Lisa Cashin graduated from the University of MN in 1975 with a BA in Psychology, and University of MN Dental School in 1978. Dr. Cashin joined DHCC in 1985 after several years in the general family practice setting. She continues to further her dental education so that she can provide her patients, of all ages, with comprehensive treatment using the latest techniques.
She treats patients with cosmetic restorations, including CEREC crowns which are made in the office in a single visit. She also performs comfortable root canal treatments and extractions when needed. When implant treatment has been completed with a specialist, Dr. Cashin provides the final ceramic crown and/or bridgework. If implants are not an option for the patient, she will provide them with a well-fitted partial or denture. Dr Cashin is also a certified clear braces provider enabling her to give minor orthodontic care to adults as part of a cosmetic treatment plan when needed, or desired, by her patients. In addition, Dr. Cashin is certified as a Perio Protect provider. This is another treatment modality of homecare therapy to those patients with ongoing gum disease issues. She continues to enjoy giving care to her diverse and multi-generation patients with gentle hands.
Meet Dr. Woell
Dr. John Woell was inspired by his grandfather and uncle who encouraged dentistry as a healing profession. He is a graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. Other mentors for Dr. Woell in the field of dentistry would be the retired partners of Dental Health Care Center, Dr. John Erickson and Dr. Leonard Arndt, whom were instructors at the U of M as well.
Dr. Woell treats patients with a vision of maintaining each individual’s oral health for an entire lifetime. This requires a comprehensive approach which includes assessing one’s medical, periodontal, orthodontic, and restorative needs. He trained early in his professional career to diagnose and treat patients having malocclusion problems with orthodontic therapy. He is certified in CEREC, Clear Braces, and Perio Protect, and is a member of the Seattle Study Club whose objective is to use a multidisciplinary approach in treating complex dental conditions.
In addition, he is a member of the American Dental Association, the Minnesota Dental Association and the St. Paul District Dental Society. He has also volunteered at the Union Gospel Mission in St. Paul for many years. He believes in giving back and has been a team member of Programa San Francisco De Asis Sonrisa on the cleft palate team for years, along with his wife Marcia. This medical team has treated more than 5,000 cleft lip/palate children in Peru. In recent years, he has been involved with mission trips to treat children and adults for their dental needs in the Gris Gris community of Haiti.
Outside the dental office, his passion is for bicycling, skiing, hunting, fishing, traveling, and family activities with his wife, their four children and two grandchildren.
