Dr.Castenada is professional, and knows what she is doing. What I was unpleased with was the fact that I would schedule an appointment for a procedure (cleaning), which was pushed back multiple months, and when I would come on the appointmentdays I would just meet with her and nothing would get done. I feel like she was just trying to get my copay! I have a busy schedule and had to switch dentists because the appointments were too unpredictable.

Absolutely loved my appointments with Rebecca Castaneda! The hygienist was wonderful and my consultation was very thorough. I definitely continue to see Dr. Castaneda and will actually have two of my veneers replaced with her as well!

Everyone at the office seemed flustered, but there didn't seem to be any patients at the office. I waited for almost an hour! Then I thought the Dr was kind of unprofessional in the way she was talking to me.

She was very kind and helpful throughout the whole process. The appointment lasted more than an hour and she didn't even seem to mind at all. I definitely plan on returning here for all of my dental in the future.

Dr. Castaneda was wonderful. She zeroed in on my problem and helped me figure out what was going on with my teeth. I had a gorgeous smile I was ready to show off just in time for my reunion.
