The practice of Dr. Raul Castellanos is a family dentistry practice dedicated to providing excellent care and high quality dentistry that improves patients’ lives by improving their health, comfort, and appearance. We provide individually focused care to patients of all ages, from two months to 100 years, and we treat each person the way we would want to be treated ourselves. We do not over-treat our patients or try to sell them procedures they don’t need. Dr. Castellanos simply explains options based on his diagnosis and lets his patients choose.
We would rather prevent problems than correct them. For this reason, we take the time to fully educate our patients on our approach to optimal dental health. We believe in treating the full mouth and in helping patients keep the teeth and supporting structures they were born with. Dr. Castellanos starts by creating a healthy foundation of bone and gums. He then treats any decay present in the teeth. Finally, he adds corrective or cosmetic features such as crowns, bridges, and veneers, secure in the knowledge that the cosmetic and restorative work he does will last a lifetime. We do it once. We do it right. We do it for life.
Dr. Raul Castellanos, Jr., D.D.S.
Dr. Raul Castellanos has offered comprehensive dentistry in a family-oriented atmosphere since 1978. His extensive repertoire of treatments includes pedodontics (children’s dentistry), orthodontics, periodontics (gum treatment), endodontics (root canal therapy), prosthodontics (fitting with prosthetic devices such as dentures), oral surgery, cosmetic dentistry, and restorative dentistry, including full mouth restoration.
Dr. Castellanos earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the UCLA Dental School in 1978. Since that time, he has completed more than 650 hours of continuing education to keep current on developments in his field and is a self-described “continuing education junkie.” Following graduation, Dr. Castellanos began his dental career working as a staff dentist for two years. He then worked for the Community Health Foundation for another three years before going into private practice in 1983. Currently, Dr. Raul Castellanos serves Los Angeles area patients from his Pico Rivera office.
In addition to his focus on continuing education, Dr. Castellanos stays involved in the dental community through his many professional memberships. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the San Gabriel Valley Dental Society, as well as the American Orthodontic Society, and the Appliance Therapy Practitioners.
