“I consider myself fortunate to have very professional, caring, and experienced individuals working as part of my orthodontic staff.” – Dr. Castella

Our team has more than 75 years of combined experience in orthodontics. Please note the word “combined” as none of us look that old ... we hope!

With Esther warmly greeting you by name when you step through the door, Betty helping you with your elastics and other processes, and Ashleigh polishing your teeth, you’ll always feel well cared for; if there’s ever anything else you need, let us know!


Appointment Coordinator

I love conversations with patients and parents, hearing their latest news and sharing in their lives. It’s an amazing experience to see patients grow up before my eyes and become more confident due to their smile transformation!

I greet and check in patients, schedule appointments, accept and process payments, handle insurance claims, and review patient contracts. I and the rest of our team are here to help ensure smooth, stress-free visits!

I’ve been married for almost 20 years and have one son, Jaedyn. We all love and adore our Boxer, Tilly Rose. My free time is spent with family and friends. I enjoy watching movies, bike riding, shopping, essential oils and natural alternatives, and coffee, of course!


Certified Level 2 Dental Assistant

I really enjoy getting to know our patients and their families. It’s fun to catch up on what’s happening in their lives and see how people change from visit to visit. Those finished smiles show so much confidence!

I assist Dr. Castella with a variety of orthodontic procedures. I also take records, X-rays, and impressions for diagnostics and treatment planning and handle lab work. We have a happy, caring team and coming to work feels more like spending time with friends than a job!

My time off is spent with my four beautiful children: three daughters and one son, and our dog, Bella. In the summer we like to go to our trailer on the lake, where we enjoy swimming, fishing, campfires, and sitting on the porch with good friends and family. I love small town living and the simple things in life.


Dental Hygienist

I love smiles! We have wonderful patients and I enjoy seeing each person’s transformation throughout treatment and their bright, beautiful smiles at the end!

I take orthodontic records and tracings, work alongside Dr. Castella, and work one-to-one with patients. Our office feels like a warm, supportive family and our patients are an extension of that. We want only the best for each patient: the best treatment experience and the best finished smile!

I’ve been lucky-in-love with my husband Mike for more than ten years. We have two beautiful dogs, Hank and Zoe; they, and our friends and family, are the world to me. Mike and I love to travel the world and we head south to New Orleans at least a couple times a year. On my days off, I can be found playing volleyball, practicing yoga, or reading a good book. Except for Sundays during football season, of course, when I am cheering on my New Orleans Saints!
