Cindy Karava

I have been with Dr. Castro from the beginning. I was his dental assistant when he opened his doors in 2003. Now I am the Office Manager and am usually the voice on the other end of the phone when you call to schedule an appointment. I wear many hats in the office, but what I enjoy most is greeting patients when they arrive and seeing them leave the office satisfied.

We have a wonderful team here at Paradise Dental and enjoy working together to provide our patients with the best service possible. We love to help our patients change their lives by improving their dental health and enhancing their smiles. After spending many years beside a dental chair, I understand the anxiety patients may feel and if you need some reassurance through a difficult procedure… I am always ready to hold a hand. I am very much a family person, so in my spare time, you will find me with my husband and son doing one of our favorite things - fishing!

Lisa Chin

I have been working as a dental assistant and with Dr. Castro since 2004. I am usuall in the treatment rooms working with Dr. Castro, but I can also be found up at the front desk doing anything I can to help.

I enjoy reading, watching movies and sometimes just staying at home with my four cats.

I have been working in the dental profession since 1988. I joined Dr. Castro’s team as a dental assistant almost 3 years ago. I have lived in the Palmetto/Ellenton area for over 20 years.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and reading.

Nancy Castro

My role at Paradise Dental is multi-faceted. I handle the bookkeeping, insurance claim filing, referral program, and marketing, but you won’t often see me in the office when you come for a visit as I do most of my work at home where I can fit it in between my other job as Dr. Castro’s wife and mother to our two children.

I graduated from the United States Air Force Academy and have two Masters Degrees in Business from Troy State University and George Washington University. After serving as an officer in the Air Force for 13 years, I am enjoying setting down roots, raising a family, and building a successful practice with my husband. My free time is usually filled with activities at church, scrapbooking, reading, and whatever new creative project I have decided to take on.
