Our primary mission is to improve one’s long-term oral healthcare. Our secondary mission is to educate on astronomy and the advances of NASA and humankind.
We've got a well-seasoned team that will make your experience at our office stellar!
He completed his post-graduate residency at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health in 2017. His educational endeavors are ongoing; since finishing his residency, Dr. Calascibetta has completed over 250 hours of continuing education. New York dentists are required to complete only 20 hours annually.
Dr. Calascibetta partook in multiple outreach opportunities during dental school to treat patients in impoverished areas. At Eastman Dental, he worked with dentists and specialists from all over the globe, exposing him to new techniques and treatment options for his patients. A firm believer in giving back to his profession, he welcomes the opportunity to mentor pre-dental and dental students, as well as hygienists and dental assistants.
At the cornerstone of his treatment philosophy is the ideal of being a “Man for Others,” a phrase instilled into him as a student at McQuaid Jesuit High School. Above all else, Dr. Calascibetta selflessly serves his patients, and he and his team are dedicated to compassionate care and informing patients of the “why” behind any treatment performed.
Celestial Dental is the culmination of his two biggest passions – that of dentistry and his childhood passion, the night sky. In this uniquely designed practice, he and his team hope that you will feel comfortable and heard, and that you can appreciate the wonders of the cosmos as he does.
She and Dr. C continually review the practice's operations and look for ways to improve the patient and staff experience. Her involvement in the practice workflow allows Dr. C to focus on what he does best - taking care of our patients.
Tanya is also a devoted wife and mother of three children. She is an avid Yankees fan, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a bigger Bills fan than her!
Though treatment coordination is her main title, Kay also works closely with Rosanna in reception and Tanya in insurance verification. She will even assist Dr. C if he needs help during a procedure. Truly, she is the most well-rounded team member that we have.
In addition to raising her children with her husband Johnny, Kay and Tanya share a friendly but fierce rivalry as to who’s the bigger Bills fan.
She works diligently to ensure our schedule flows appropriately and can fit a patient in pain at a moment's notice. Her experience in customer service allows her to authentically connect with our patients, especially with those in pain.
Rosanna's compassionate nature is not just limited to her role as our receptionist; her gentle touch enables her to care for her home garden as she does for our practice.
In addition to full-time hygiene at Celestial Dental, Lauren is an adjunct professor at Monroe Community College's Dental Hygiene Program, teaching first-year students radiography. Her passion for teaching has made her a terrific mentor to Marissa and Lea. She is also working on her Masters in Adult Learning at Empire State College.
Busy as she is, Lauren embraces the "work hard, play hard" mentality. She enjoys time spent on the water and the social scene in Rochester.
Marissa's flexibility (she has also been trained as a dental assistant) enables her to ensure all patients' needs are being met, either by dental cleanings or by root canals. Her bubbly personality is welcomed by patients no matter the treatment. She loves nothing more than her puppy Gizmo!
As she assists in a progressive office, Lea is also being trained on the most advanced equipment in the industry. She takes impressions digitally, plans surgical guides digitally, and designs crowns digitally. Ultimately, she and Dr. C will be able to create brand new smiles digitally and make them a reality for patients who have been yearning to smile for years.
Lea is a newlywed; she is happily married and lives with her husband Dan in rural Chili.
With exposure to distressed patients, she has a unique skillset that fits perfectly with the volume of same-day emergencies we manage. Heather has the "gift of gab" and always knows how to distract patients during procedures. As our longest-standing assistant, Heather is also responsible at ensuring all of our equipment is being maintained and running optimally.
Her ability to learn quickly allows her to keep up with the many latest techniques Dr. C brings to the office. Along with her family, Heather loves spending time with her (30!) chickens!
After exploring her options in healthcare, Isabel has decided on furthering her education. Currently, she is obtaining her Masters of Science in Health Informatics from the University of Pittsburgh. She continues to assist us full time in addition to school.
If you’re ever being taken care by Dr. C and Isabel, please forgive them for the amount of references they will make from the NBC sitcom The Office.
Currently applying for dental school, she is now enrolled in the Master's of Oral Health program at Boston University. Dr. C has mentored her in our Pioneer Program to prepare her for the challenges ahead. Her inquisitive nature and independence is a reminder to patients that they are being treated alongside a future doctor.
Her giving nature is what makes her a natural in the volunteering positions that she holds. With aspirations of becoming a pediatric dentist, you can be sure she’ll be the first assistant there to make a child’s visit at the dentist fun.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, he and Dr. C were able to manage over 200 dental emergencies. Dave comes back to our office to assist in procedures he would not be performing until late in academia.
In addition to spending time with his family, Dave is a large advocate for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The Pioneer Program
The Pioneer Program
This is a pre-dental student program we offer to college students. They learn directly from Dr. C about all facets of dentistry, including clinical and business.
NASA’s Pioneer programs were a series of lunar and planetary space missions. Two of the Pioneer probes were the first to explore interstellar space. In the same way, pre-dental students at Celestial Dental are pioneers of their peers, being the first to have exposure to dentistry at a very hands-on level.
Inside Our Practice
Dr. C is constantly staying on top of technological advances in dentistry. Knowing how much it will benefit our patients, he has invested in the absolute best equipment available.
- 3D X-Ray
- Sedation Equipment
- 3D Scanner
- Tooth Camera
- Same-Day Crowns
- Crown Furnace
- Treatment Software
- Air Filtration
Our CBCT 3D X-ray technology gives Dr. C a more detailed view of your mouth’s current conditions, so he can detect and diagnose problems before they worsen. It also collects a lot more data than the traditional 2D X-rays!
Our laughing gas tanks in conjunction with our vitals monitoring equipment used in hospitals allow us to perform dentistry on anxious patients who would otherwise avoid treatment at all. Our staff is trained on this equipment to ensure you have a great experience while sedated.
The Primescan lets us process more than 1,000,000 3D points per second. This produces photorealistic and highly accurate data of your mouth! In most cases, it makes traditional impressions obsolete and allows for a more comfortable patient experience.
The MouthWatch intraoral camera allows us to educate our patients on any issues their teeth may have. Dr. C cannot practice without it. It is vital in the level of transparency he provides to his patients.
The Primemill is the latest in crown and bridge-making technology. From our waiting room, you can watch your dental crown/bridge being made from the strongest materials on the market.
The SpeedFire Oven assists us with strengthening your crown or bridge after it has been milled in-house. Reaching temperatures just shy of 3,000°F, our crowns come out looking like little pearls but are tough as diamonds.
SICAT treatment planning software allows us to better understand how to properly perform implant surgeries, root canal treatments, and sleep apnea management. As a result, treatment success is far more predictable.
The Zolar diode laser allows us to manipulate gum tissue in a precise manner. We are able to remove canker sores, enhance the appearance of teeth, and make fillings more predictable, among many other uses.
We were the FIRST dental office in Monroe County to implement Surgically Clean Air. Our medical-grade air purifiers filter all sorts of debris, including airborne viruses. Our central air purifier filters the entire dental office every 30 minutes.
