Dr. Castaneda is in two words "totally awesome". She's a trained studio artist, you know, so she approaches everything she does with the intention to make it as beautiful to look at as it is perfectly designed. She's like DaVinci - just as incredible an artist as she is a scientist. She has that rare ability to envision how moving parts in 3D (teeth in a mouth that is chewing) will fit together in every possible arrangement, and so she designs her prosthetic solutions based on not only what looks beautiful, but also what will stand the test of time, be comfortable for the patient, and stand up to pressure, chemicals, and even occasional accidents (life happens). I really feel that finding Dr. Castaneda as a young woman in my twenties (with a badly damaged mouth from a car accident) totally changed my life for the better. She was so gentle, kind, caring and upbeat - she helped me turn my life around (it's no fun when you don't want to smile!). I really can't say enough good things about Dr. Castaneda, and I feel sorry for anyone who has had to go to another prosthodontist for their care, because I know that Dr. C. is the absolute best. Off the charts wonderful. An amazing person and dentist. You have just found your miracle. Congratulations!
