Dr. Castro has been our family’s dentist for almost 20 years. He is easy to talk to and always has your best interest in mind. He explains the treatment plan and never pushes for work that isn’t needed. His staff isknowledgeable and very friendly. Overall an outstanding experience!  I have and will continue to recommend his office to all my friends!

I HATE going to the dentist as I’ve had many horrible experiences! But this place is amazing! I had an appointment with them today for the first time and they made me feel so comfortable! The assistant, Rebecca, and Dr. Castro took very good care of me. Dr Castro knows his stuff! I have another appointment on June 3rd that I’m actually looking forward to! Thank ya’ll so much!

Dr. Castro and his awesome staff were nothing short of amazing. I was in horrible pain when I walked into their office and on a Saturday!! Dr. Castro knew what to do to get me out of my misery until a needed root canal was performed. I’m happy to report that both my husband and I have found a new dentist! Dr. C’s staff are smart , beautiful, and are top notch in patient care too. Big thank you to all of you!!! Forever grateful! -Kathleen Edwards

Not only were the ladies in the office polite and engaging but they worked hard to put any concerns or nervousness at ease. We were able to talk about my teeth but they also showed an interest in me as a person, which made the whole visit nice as well as productive. I look forward to my next visit, as much as I can look forward to a visit to the dentist.

Beverly G. from Midlothian, VA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying that I’d rather a bus run over me than go to the dentist. Having said that, I started going to Dr. Castro over 15 years and he is still my dentist…that’s saying a lot. Dr. Castro is very personable and patient oriented. The entire staff is customer service driven. Dr. Castro and his staff will bend over backwards to meet your needs. From the attendant at the front desk greeting you to the dental technicians I can honestly say that my visit always exceed expectations. If you have fears like I do Dr. Castro and his staff will go above and beyond to provide a calming atmosphere. My last visit was no exception.

My wife cracked a front tooth. Having over time become disenchanted with our previous dentist, she reached out to our neighbors and one recommended this practice. She contacted them in the morning, and they were able to schedule her for an appointment for the same day! When we arrived, we were greeted outside by a very pleasant young lady who gathered the necessary information. After a few minutes, she was texted that she could enter. After a very brief wait, she was greeted by Dr. Davidson, who completed all of the necessary work. My wife said she was very pleasant, was obviously committed to the details, such as tooth color and look, and completed the work. The finished product looked like nothing had ever happened! Kuddos to a very professional and friendly environment for a job well done! I’m pretty certain that they have gained a new family of patients as a result!

Dr. Castro is awesome, his bedside manner is amazing, friendly and helped to reassure me as I was very nervous for my procedure. His staff is attentive and knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable and eased my nerves. Going to the dentist is never usually an exciting time but Dr. Castro and his staff can change the way you feel about going. Confident in his skills and I hardly have any pain or soreness. After having a really bad experience with a prior dentist at a different office, Dr. Castro made me feel good about going to the dentist. If you are looking for an amazing dental practice with awesome, friendly faces and competent staff, go see Dr. Castro at Legacy Dental. Thank you for making my experience so good.

Jessi was amazing! My boyfriend went there for a check up and when his appointment was over, we found out his car battery had died. Jessi and another lady offered their help and took control of the situation and got his car started. They were so nice and if she does that off the clock, I wonder how she is in the office. Definitely recommend!

Dr. Castro’s office is hands down the best office I have ever been to. From the moment I walked through the door I felt like I was treated as though I was staying in a 5 star resort in a penthouse suite or first class flying on an airplane. They gave me a tour of the office and even had a special gift waiting for me in what they call a “suite”. From exceptional customer service to the amazing dental care make you guys top notch in my book. Oh did I forget they work with you on payment as well. Well Done GUYS!!

My family has been going to Dr. Castor’s office for over 10 years and I recommend him to everybody I know and people that I don’t. My dental hygenist Melissa is the greatest asset to his practice in my opinion because of her professionalism, friendliness and how comfortable and
pleasant she makes the visit.

Dr. Castro is so personable and really cool. The first time I went to a dentist without my parent present I went to him and he made me feel comfortable and really informed. It was a little nerve racking not to have my mom there to answer questions but he made me feel like he cared about my well being. I got my filling and didn’t feel a thing. It took like 2 minutes I swear. Also side note this place smells really good and there’s even perfume in the bathroom.

This office really knows there stuff! Other offices I have been to just seem like their going thru the motions. Dr. Castro staff knows insurance, treatment and give you options. All the staff really look like they enjoy their job because they are always smiling. Thanks Dr. Castro for a refreshing experience to dental offices.

First let me tell you that I have a have a really bad experience many years ago due to two root canals not being properly treated so when I came to Dr. Castro for a filling and he told me I needed a root canal not only did my anxiety esculate because of how my last root canal my fear of how I would be able to handle it this time. I had never has nitros oxide (laughing gas) before and I was too fearful to be put to sleep for the procedure. DR. Castro was so gentle and calm with me and walked me through receiving the nitros with my treatment. The staff pampered me with a pillow, blanket, and the music of my choice to add to reducing my level of stress. The root canal procedure went off without a hitch he totally eased my anxiety, even though he wrote me a script for pain I did not need it. He is my go to dental provider

I have been a client of Dr.Castro for many many years.Dr.Castro and his staff are friendly, polite and helpful. My past history prior to Dr.Castro was horrible so therefore preventative care was never done. He and his staff make going to the dentist relaxing. He has time management down and realizes everyone’s time is valuable. I don’t think he has ever been behind schedule and fits me in for any dental emergency.

This was my first visit to legacy Dental. I took my 2 year old son along who is terrified of contact from people he doesn’t know. His anxiety is extreme and I knew it would be pretty impossible for the dentist to get into his mouth. Dr. Castro was very reassuring and clearly has tons of experience with children because he knew exactly how to turn my sons experience into a good one! I held him the entire time his teeth were being examined, and the Dr. Addressed all of my questions and concerns. He also provided feedback on what we could do better in order to ensure Judah continues to have a healthy smile. I never felt judged for one second. My appointment was immediately after and my experience was just as fabulous as Judah’s. I want to say my hygienists name was Maria? Or something very similar! She was amazing, we had a great discussion, and she made the X-ray experience, which is typically daunting, very enjoyable. She is very knowledgeable at her craft. Again, the Dr. Was able to come and follow up with me pretty promptly and give recommendations based on my exam to ensure I continue to have a healthy smile. They will openly talk with you about insurance and what your specific plan covers, too. In my experience, many places aren’t as opened to doing that. Everyone here undoubtedly has integrity, which is tremendously important to me when it comes to any healthcare provider.. especially one dealing with my children. Thanks for such a great experience!

Dr. Castros office does an amazing job to make sure you are prepared and relaxed during your visit. They have options like aromatherapy, pillows and eye masks to make sure your relaxed. Dr. Castro makes sure to explain all procedures before he begins. The office staff is wonderful and contacts the insurance company beforehand so I’m never surprised about co-pays.

S B. from Chester, VA (Source: Yelp)


I took my 3 children there today for the first time and instantly felt welcomed.  The receptionist was very hospitable.  I was invited to come to the back where my children were being examined and the doctors talked to me about their concerns.  The dental assistants were also very  friendly.  There was a hiccup with my insurance and the receptionist dealing with that resolved the issue.   I’m so glad I chose this dentist office and will be coming back. I won’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Legacy dental is great. The entire staff is kind, considerate, and friendly. I have been going there for over 8 years and really think the service they give is wonderful. I use their dental savings plan and it has saved us a ton of money. When either my husband or I need work done that is expensive, they have worked with us to get it scheduled and by using the dental savings plan we have found a way to pay for it. They even found us a 0 interest credit card for the work if we paid it off within a certain amount of time.. I would not go anywhere else.

From the first moment I walked in the door I was greeted by a very nice staff! The Dr Castro was amazing as well as his assistant! After my visit I sat with the office manager for quite some time, she was very professional and really helped me understand what my insurance would cover and what it would not , so I didn’t end up with an unexpected bill. She was wonderful! An absolutely amazing experience from the first moment I walked in! Will be returning soon.

Stef S. from Chesterfield, VA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Castro is PHENOMENAL and my experience was more like being at a spa than a dentist! I have a severe phobia of going to the dentist, but he offers numerous, state of the art options to help relieve anxiety (nitrous, topical numbing gel, earplugs, eye mask, blankets, low lighting, music). The office manager, Stephanie, is very kind, and genuine. Can’t wait to go back!   HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

I hate going to the dentist and my daughter is very picky about the dentist. This week we both had appointment. Miss Alexa did so well with my daughter she made me excited about my appointment. As I have been through chemo and radiation, my teeth have been very brittle and just not up to par. They gave me helpful hints about flossing and gave me options when it came to treatment. I am thankful for Miss Melissa who was my hygienist as she was very caring. All staff was very professional.

When having my 6 month cleaning on 6/25/19 – one of the hygienist, Sarah, did an outstanding job!! She took her time (didn’t make me feel like she was in a rush), and did a most thorough job! I can say that it is probably the 1st time I have come away from a cleaning feeling like I could tell I had my teeth cleaned! Thank you, Sarah for a job well done!!

Dr. Castro is a really great guy and the office staff is really great explaining the cost of everything. They have a ton of different payment plans and I was blown away by the person they called my “treatment coordinator” she went out of her way to help me. My dental work went smooth and it was easy to make payments. Thank you Dr. Castros office for helping me out!!!

On yesterday I had my 1st appt and it went really great. The staff was very pleasant. The dental assistant Jessie was great she made me feel very welcome as a new patient which means a lot. Jessie really took her time to explain everything which was a major plus she was very professional. Looking forward to have that service again.

If anybody is actively searching for one or thinks their dentist is just ok, pay attention. So not all have been bad, but I have had multiple bad experiences with different dentists that I think did horrible jobs and I had zero trust with them. The last place I went to was an abomination and had me seeking out new dentist. Thankfully, I had seen many good things written about Dr. Castro‘s office in Chester. So I decided to give them a try. The appointment process over the phone was very easy and friendly which even that is a change from my past dentist offices. Today, the people at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. An assistant brought me to the back and took me on a brief tour explaining different things about the office and showing me where different things were. When I got to my room, I had a small gift bag waiting for me on the chair. She did a brief interview with me about my likes and dislikes as well as things that were important to me relating to my teeth and dentist offices. She then handed me a piece of paper and asked which of these comfort measures I would like to use today. On the list were complementary things such as an eye mask, a heated blanket, or essential oils. Then if you choose to pay for it, you could get sedation as well. At first I politely declined any comfort measure but after quickly thinking about it, I figured why not and I had lavender oil dripped on my bib. Then my hygienist came back and did a quick interview with me as well took x-rays and started the exam. It was a very thorough exam and she explained all that she was doing along the way and it was virtually painless which is something that most hygienists apparently are no longer taught. The dentist came back and spent more time with me than most any dentist had before and did a great job explaining everything and making sure I had no questions. The scheduling process was very simple and the checkout process was very quick and easy and the girl there was very friendly as well. The head dentist walked by me in the hallway and greeted me and shook my hand before I left. Everybody there was absolutely incredible, friendly, smiling, and everyone of them shook my hand when they met me. I have been searching for a dentist office that I could trust and I think I have finally found that location. If you do not currently have a dentist or are not happy with your current dentist, Dr. Castro‘s office is where you need to be! (And also if you happen to become a new patient there, make sure they know I referred you so I can be entered into a drawing. The fact that I can be entered into a drawing though has zero bearing on me writing this referral. This would’ve been written regardless because they were just that good.)

Friendly and helpful staff. Dr. Castro and his wife did an excellent job explaining everything in a way I could understand and recommending what is needed. They also let me know what insurance would cover before the time of service, where at other offices they are extremely vague. Thanks to the staff at this office for being so helpful during my visit!

In writing reviews I stray to the left. Dr. Castro has been my dentist for quite some time. My history with Dentists would make your hair stand on ends.I have always dreaded to go to the dentist (even for cleanings). Every time I would go to the dentist as a child it was “HELLHOUSE” for me. My fear of the dentist is because of the way my anatomy is. Sometimes the anatomy doesn’t cooperate like that of other people’s anatomy and they get a mouth like mine. I have these massive buckles of bone that hold my teeth in. Yeah, I may not have to worry about receding bone density but when it comes time for being numbed — Forget it! You can’t stick a needle in it- it’s protected by bone! Gas dosen’t work. And forget about blocks. When I’d leave the dentist, I was swollen and mentally traumatized. Then Dr. Castro started practicing conscious sedation. Now all I remember is that amazing Jordan and her great smile. The music, the pillows and all the champagne. Then I don’t remember one damned thing. I will go to no other dentist – the only man to say STOP I’m not killing this man.

Dr Castro is such a delight. All of the dental assistants and office staff are such a joy. They all make you feel welcome and are super friendly. They are so understanding and patient when it comes to my hectic schedule. Thanks you all for all that you do!

This was one of the best experiences ever in a dental office! Professional, friendly and very helpful in making my experience as pleasant and informative as possible. I felt very secure in every procedure administered. Steven A. Castro and your staff showed outstanding Professionalism and courtesy in helping me get the care and attention needful for my procedure. So grateful for this very positive experience and definitely would return.
