The Farmerville office was purchased in June of 2007 by Dr. Costello from Dr. Tommy Ward. A year and a half later the other side of the building owned by Dr. William Roberts was purchased by Dr. Costello. The entire dental office was
remodeled by Dr. Costello and Farmerville Dental was born. The practice flourished and Dr. Costello hired Dr. Daniel Raymond in 2009. In 2011, Dr. Raymond bought in as partner.
In November of 2011, Dr. Costello and Dr. Raymond bought an existing practice in Dr. Costello’s home town of Oak Grove, and Oak Grove Dental was born. The practice grew very rapidly and in 2012 the Oak Grove office was remodeled and
doubled in size. As needs grew for a dental office performing all aspects of dentistry under one roof, Dr. Costello and Dr. Raymond bought the practice of Dr. Sam Trinca and Dr. David Barker in Monroe, and Monroe Dental was born.
In 2014, all three offices names were changed to NELA Dental. In 2015, Dr. Emily Wilhite joined the Monroe office and works part time at the Farmerville office. Ryan Rachal, D.D.S. joined the NELA Dental team in 2017.
