History, Philosophy, Approach
Dr. Castillo, a Diplomat of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, has opened Happy Pediatric Dentistry to fulfill his lifelong dream of providing quality dental care to children.
Dr. Castillo was born in Mexico City and moved to the U.S. as a teenager with his mother and younger sister. Growing up in the Chicago, Dr. Castillo took advantage of the educational opportunities his new home provided. Although his mother worked long hours in a meat packing company, she was happy to see that her son excelled in school.
As his number one fan, Dr. Castillo’s mother encouraged him to succeed and be the first in the family to graduate from college, go to dental school, and become a college professor, directing a migrant health clinic and teaching dental students. Later, he joined the U.S. Army, specialized in children’s dentistry and finished as Lieutenant Colonel. Until her last day, she was her son’s biggest fan and cheerleader.
Success and Satisfaction
Humble beginnings, a variety of work experiences and colleagues have shaped Dr.Castillo’s life and dental philosophy. His vision is that all children are special and that they deserve the best dental care. Happy Pediatric Dentistry aims at providing a stellar experience for all patients. We greatly appreciate the support given by the Hispanic Chamber for our grand opening and the organization’s interest in our success.
