    After years of mishaps with dentists I finally found the perfect dentist; Dr John. I highly recommend him to everyone I meet. I even have family members coming from Albany NY to have him fix what others have done. The office itself is extremely clean and that means everything. The wait time is less then the allowed time on this site...I've never had to wait.

Dr. Castanaro has had an interest in dentistry from a young age. Inspired by his father’s legacy in the field, following in his footsteps was an easy decision: “I was lucky. My dad is a dentist so it was a natural progression for me. I worked at his office as a kid and loved it. I decided to go to dental school after finishing my Master’s, and the rest is history” said Dr. Castanaro. 

After graduating from the University of Scranton with a bachelor’s degree in biology and philosophy, Dr. Castanaro went on to earn his master’s degree in biology from the University at Buffalo in 2003.
