Dr. Raul Castano, DMD, MS, FICOI

Dentist

Professional statement

During the time I have been practicing dentistry, I have found that people are not aware of the multiple options that they have for keeping a beautiful and healthy smile. I personally believe that our staff must stay informed and trained in the latest technologies. We participate in multiple conferences, classes and events to maintain that leading edge. Our practice embraces the area of implant and reconstructive dentistry. This means that we are trained and experienced to help people with missing teeth and worn out or unaesthetic smiles. We delight in helping people achieve their goals of good oral health. At your first visit we will provide a thorough examination to assess your dental condition. We feel that understanding your needs and concerns is a critical component of helping you achieve your dental goals. I take every treatment individually and will make a recommendation like if you were my own family. I will make sure that you understand all your options and comprehend your treatment. We look forward to working with you to create beautiful healthy teeth for you for a lifetime.

Fabiola has been the key factor in booking with Dr. Castano. Initially, I was having issues with my insurance, which Fabiola handled with patience and care. She went above and beyond to assist me with locating information that I was unableto find. She even offered me the promotional plan as an alternative option and it was reassuring in every way. Luckily, my new insurance kicked in and it was covered. Throughout it all, Fabiola has made every effort to create personal connections with her warmth and kindness. Other staff members were all kind as well and loved to engage in conversations to keep you company. Dr. Castano was professional and understanding, putting your comfort before a ticking clock. In the end, everything was done swiftly and accordingly. Waiting room is vibrant and constantly clean. I will be coming back in 6 months, everything was great! I will be putting this on google too!

I chose this particular dentist because I have a phobia... no different from any other dentist... then to top it off... hit me with a huge due bill. Did not even discuss approx cost before services rendered... claimed it was dueto emergency appointment... I don’t consider over a week an emergency... had I known I was going to have to pay THAT much, I wouldn’t have gone.

He was really rude!I explained to him that I was terrified of the dentist and I'm normally prescribed anxiety medicine so I'm calm,he insisted that everything would be okay and we do the procedure now. During the procedure he started speakingto me rudely. The two assistants were great and they helped me get through it. He's very unprofessional And impatient. I wouldn't recommend anyone to his office.

Dr. Castano was absolutely wonderful. Not only was I able to get an appointment next day while on a short vacation in the area, but he was able to take care of extracting my painful wisdom tooth without a bit ofpain. I didn't even realize the tooth was out until he told me so! I don't live in the area but luckily live within driving distance. I will definitely be using him for the implants when I'm ready to start that process.

Dr. Castano and his office crew are fantastic. I have been a patient for 6+ years now and he does quality work. Alway offering the various options available so the patient is well informed to make decisions. He has state ofart products and can handle 100% of your (my one) implant procedure. I had a fall injury to a tooth. He is absolutely the best dentist for getting the Novocain shots!!!

Not well-equipped for pediatrics. They appeared under the "pediatric dentistry" search option on ZocDoc. They label themselves as an "all ages" dentistry and accepted appointments for our small children. First one was today. InitiallyI was impressed by the nice facilities, zero wait-time, friendly reception and high-tech imaging equipment they used to inspect my son's teeth. Things deteriorated quickly after the first 5 minutes. They criticized the six year old the whole time because he couldn't keep his lips/tongue still. They had me hold down the boy and try to keep him still the whole time -- he was not wiggling that much, he's a normal six year old. They tried to conduct an x-ray and gagged him in the process. He threw up. The hygienist immediately stopped the cleaning and got the doctor while I was there helping him wash out his mouth. The doctor looked over teeth and said that they really recommend a pediatric dentist because he needs a lot of work and can't even sit still for a cleaning. They gave me a blank referral slip for a pediatric dentist whom they apparently have a deal with. Wish they would've just done that out of the gate -- I guess they only send him the kids that don't have adult levels of stillness. The hygienist escorted my son to the waiting room while I paid a bill at the checkout desk that was much too large because they are apparently unfamiliar with our plan, despite saying that they accept it on ZocDoc. I then had to fill out the patient paperwork I was unable to complete during the cleaning because the hygienist had me holding my son down, while my six-year-old son sat by himself in the waiting room. This dentist may be good for adults, but they are in no way an acceptable option for pediatrics. It sounds like most of their pediatric patients are family/friends. Don't bring your kids here.

Awesome! Dr. C is great and the most gentle dentist around. His office offers the crown process in house so you don't have to wait 2 weeks with a temporary crown. They make & bake the crown & place it allat one time! This saves time from work and a second numb mouth. I recommend Dr. Costano????
