Carlos Castillo

My name is Carlos Castillo and I have moved to Ireland after over 8 years working as a specialist dentist in Spain.

 

I have practiced implant and periodontal dentistry for many years following my postgraduate education. I have attained postgraduate Masters degrees in Periodontics and Mucogingival Surgery from San Pablo CEU University, Madrid-Spain [2015] and Masters in Advanced Oral Surgery and Implantology, University of Lleida, Lérida-Spain [2107].

 

I am delighted to join Pembroke Dental as part of the specialist dentist team. Together with my colleagues who specialise in cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, and oral surgery, we can combine our specialist therapies to provide the highest level of comprehensive dental care to our patients under one roof.

 

I am limiting my practice to Periodontal [Gum] and implant dentistry as I have years’ experience in this area. I undertake all aspects of specialist periodontal therapy. I offer a broad range of periodontal treatments such as

 

 

  • Treatment of Periodontal [Gum] disease
  • Gum and Bone grafting
  • Guided bone and tissue regeneration
  • Cosmetic gum surgery

 

I also undertake dental implant placement and rebuilding. I am currently placing Nobel Biocare dental implants-one of the most respected and well researched brand of dental implant worldwide. Dental implants are the way of the future for many patients in my opinion, offering a really good alternative to dentures for missing teeth if placed correctly and with care.

 

All my patients shall be treated to the highest level that I can achieve with patient satisfaction being my highest priority.

What to expect from a Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a specialist dentist who has completed a five year degree in general dentistry plus at least three additional years of training and education in a postgraduate Prosthodontics program. Prosthodontists specialise in treating and handling dentofacial problems that involve restoring missing and damaged tooth and jaw structures. A prosthodontist is highly trained in aesthetics and cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures and much more. They strive to carry out all treatment to the highest standards possible.

 

Darrelle’s approach to her Patients.

Darrelle describes her approach to dentistry as conscientious and caring whilst paying a high attention to detail. Patients will go through a detailed consultative process at the outset of treatment to create a pathway to their ideal outcome.

Following the detailed understanding of a patients goals, current condition, budget and timeframe, Darrelle will create a detailed bespoke treatment plan and discuss  with each patient ,exploring all suitable treatment avenues, before embarking on their treatment.
