Dr. Casey Kersten - Veterinarian


Dr. Casey Kersten grew up in Clarkston, Michigan, and graduated from Michigan State University's College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011.

Dr. Kersten worked in private practice in Michigan and at a shelter in San Diego before moving to her forever home in Asheville. She comes from a family of dentists (the human variety), which sparked her interest in veterinary dentistry. She spent months working first-hand with several of the top veterinary dentists in the world. She encouraged Michigan State's veterinary school to add a dentistry laboratory for third-year students, which she was asked to come back and help teach after graduation. In addition to dentistry, she also has a passion for soft-tissue surgery. She is excited to better the lives of the pets of Western North Carolina by performing surgical and dental procedures at Avery Creek Pet Hospital.

Her husband Andy and her have two boys, Bennett and Brooks, and one daughter, Wesley. They also have a scruffy little mutt named Fritz that they rescued from Brother Wolf and a big shaggy Italian Spinone named Greta. She enjoys reading, weaving, Crossfit, and volleyball, but most of all she just loves spending time with her family and friends.
