During his studies, he completed three dental rotations at several ECU satellite clinics located throughout North Carolina - Lillington, Spruce Pines, and Lumberton. Upon graduating from dental school, he returned to his hometown, Burgaw, to serve his wonderful community!

Dr. Gasca believes in giving back and reaching out to all those in underserved populations. In the past, he has volunteered his time in many non-profit organizations, such as Mission of Mercy, Give Kids a Smile, and St. Mary’s Dental Clinic.

He understands the importance of staying up-to-date with new dental techniques, materials, and technologies so that he can better assist his patients. He strives to serve his patients with comprehensive and personalized treatment plans while raising the bar for standard of care. He’s an active member of the North Carolina Dental Society, American Dental Association, Hispanic Dental Association, and the Tri-county Dental Society located in the Wilmington area. One of his long-term commitments is continuing education and the pursuit of excellence in dentistry.
