Our Focus on Your Satisfaction

Going to a dentist and feeling like you're being rushed or no one is listening to your needs can be very frustrating. That's why our staff, from our friendly front-desk staff to our knowledgeable dental team, has always emphasized getting people the answers they need. Ensuring you feel comfortable and confident about your dental treatments is an important part of measuring our success as practitioners. Our dentist is accessible and easy to talk to, and is happy to talk to you about adjusting services in your personal treatment plan whenever possible.

"I like most people am not overjoyed with the thought of going to the dentist. The staff in Dr. Castros office has changed all of that. I know that they will gently take care of all my needs. They are all caring people with great customer service. They are gentle, take the time to listen to your needs, while spending the time necessary to explain what needs to be done. I am so happy I found this place years ago. They have always worked with my insurance needs."

Committed Patient Education

We're passionate about empowering you and your family members with education about many topics in dentistry that affect you. We'll provide information for you and your kids about the best techniques for effective brushing and flossing, giving you confidence in your family's home hygiene. Beyond hygiene tips, we'll always give you easy-to-understand information and talk you through complex procedures you may need, like sinus lifts or dental implants.

Having a partner in your dental health journey that wants to help you understand and feel confident about your treatments makes a difference. You can get behind your treatment plan when you feel you're being listened to and your concerns are addressed.
