staff member

Hygiene Coordinator

I began my career in dentistry at age eleven (working for my dad)!  Upon graduating from the University of Detroit Dental School, I practiced as a dental hygienist for 22 years.  I joined Countryside Oaks Dental in 2015, serving as our hygiene coordinator.  What a privilege to know our patients and help them stay on track to achieve and maintain excellent dental health!

My husband and I moved to Florida 12 years ago and love the lifestyle here.  When not in the office, I love walking, bike riding, swimming, dining out, and shoe shopping!

Assistant

I love being a part of creating beautiful new smiles for people who have not enjoyed smiling for a while. It is personally rewarding to bring back their confidence and be able to show and be proud of their smile again. Working with this team has been great. Everyone loves working here together. I have always enjoyed being able to say with a smile, I LOVE MY JOB. I have grown my dental knowledge in this office from the ground up. I am always looking forward to learning new and exciting procedures to be able to help our patients.

I am a self-proclaimed Harry Potter nerd! On the weekends, you can catch me out by a pool, lazy on the beach, or at a theme park! My large immediate and some extended family all live in the area and most of my spare time is spent with them. But, if we are asking about true happiness, that comes in the form of my mini dachshund named Cooper!

Gina

staff member

Hygienist

I earned my degree in science in dental hygiene from the University of South Dakota in 2003 and joined Countryside Oaks Dental in 2017. My role as a hygienist involves providing preventive cleanings and exams, treatment planning with the doctor, and offering education related to at-home oral healthcare. I’ve loved getting to know our family of patients and building relationships with them that I hope last a long time!

I have been happily married for almost 17 years to my high school sweetheart. We have a fur baby, our Chihuahua, who is 11. We are newer to Florida and recently bought a house. We love the activities here, especially going to the beach!

Jodi

staff member

Practice Coordinator

I am the patient concierge. I help patients with their treatment plans and dental services. I assist with scheduling, education, consultations, financial arrangements, and patient goals. I ensure excellence in our patients’ care and integrity in our business practices. I began my career in dentistry in 1979 and joined Countryside Oaks Dental in 2009. It’s been the highlight of my career! Dr. Castellanos is at the top of his field with knowledge that is unsurpassed. His kindness and expertise only shine brighter because of the caring and professional staff. Our entire practice has the patient's needs and happiness at heart.

I am the proud grandmother of five smart and adorable grandkids. I love living gulf side in paradise. On the weekends, I can be found with my friends playing in or on the water.

Marcia

Hygienist

I love meeting new patients and building relationships with current patients while providing preventive hygiene care and education. I earned my dental hygiene degree from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1988. I started working at Countryside Oaks Dental in 1990 was so excited to return to the office in 2013. Everyone here has a common goal of helping our patients achieve optimal oral health. It’s so much fun to work with people who are like family every day!

I am married to an amazing man and together we have two awesome boys. Our boys love to play baseball and most of our time is spent watching them play. We also have an Australian labradoodle that loves everyone!

Terri

staff member

Assistant

I began my dental assisting career in 1973, when my father gave me my initial training working for him at his dental office while I was in high school. It’s been a wonderful career—one that I truly love. I enjoy helping patients improve and maintain their dental health, and making sure they receive the best and most comfortable care. Dr. Castellanos and our team are compassionate and highly skilled, and we all truly care about our patients and each other. It is a pleasure to be a part of this team.

I have been married to my high school sweetheart Randy for more than 40 years. We have three grown sons and their wives, seven wonderful grandsons, and one beautiful granddaughter. I enjoy spending time with my family, my two dogs, and our beautiful sunsets at the beach.
