Yes and no.

If you run your own caching server and that caching server supports  
DNSSEC and you enable DNSSEC and set up/maintain the trust anchors,  
then yes.

So yes, pedantically speaking, there is a choice.  Pragmatically  
speaking, I doubt this is really an option for any but the geekiest  
and/or terminally paranoid.  Even the first bit of the previous "if"  
statement is probably beyond most...


P.S. From experience, running your own caching server can result in  
problems when connecting via T-Mobile hotspot and some hotel  
authentication abominations... (sigh).
