It is extremely rewarding and my pleasure to work with Advantage Dental’s talented team creating custom treatment plans that maintain our patients’ oral health and create beautiful smiles. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful family, reading a good book and listening to music.”
Claudia Flores Castro – Dental Assistant
“I have been in the dental field for over 20 years. It gives me so much pleasure knowing I’m helping a patient have a healthy smile after their visit. Receiving feedback from my patients pushes me to do my best. I am a loving mother to three girls and a wife of 24 years. My children motivate me to be the best mother I can be. I believe in staying fit and enjoy working out at the gym and riding bikes with my husband. Spending time with my family is what I like to do best. We never forget our most important family member, our dog, Cookie.

My aim is to provide patient care that is second to none and I take considerable pride in my ability to develop a trusting relationship with my patients. It is very rewarding to go to work each day, meeting people from all walks of life and contributing to their health and well-being. As a 12-year cancer survivor, I love to look on the bright side of life and I try to share this with my patients by providing an upbeat, fun take on dental health whenever I can!”
