After 12 years in private practice and academics, Dr. Castillo was commissioned as dental officer in the U.S. Army in 2000. Major Castillo’s first assignment was in beautiful Monterrey, California, where he met his wife Claudia. At that time he was selected for pediatric specialty training and earned his Pediatric Dentistry Certificate from Baylor University School of Dentistry at Dallas in 2005. In September of 2006 Dr. Castillo became a Diplomate with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and in May 2007 he became a Fellow with the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Lieutenant Colonel Castillo finished his military career with a three-year assignment in Germany as Chief of Pediatric Dentistry in 2008. After proudly serving in the U.S. Army for eight years, Dr. Manuel Castillo decided to establish his roots in Texas where he has served his patients in two private Children’s Dental practices. After almost 24 years of both general and pediatric dental experience, in 2015, Dr. Castillo decided it was time to venture in a solo practice where he could create a close and caring relationship with his young patients and their parents.
Dr. Castillo has his hands full with his three handsome boys, Mikhail, his oldest has already made him a grandfather while making a successful career in sales, Marcos goes to Coppin State University in Baltimore, where he also plays baseball, and Mattías, his youngest sweet boy. Marina is his young ballerina, and Claudia is his beautiful wife and office manager.
Dr. Castillo’s extensive experience and skills continue to earn his patients’ trust. Children and parents love his fun personality and gentle touch.
