Paola Castro, Dental Assistant
Paola Castro graduated from L.D. Bell High School. After high school she went to Tarant County College. Paola was very self conscious about her smile when she was younger. It took a couple of years of going to the dentist and going through orthodontics to love her smile. Once she was able to confidently smile she developed a passion for dentistry.
Paola fell in love with the practice of dentistry and decided she wanted help change other people’s smile insecurities, which lead her to graduate from Pure Dental Academy. Paola now has her CPR and is officially a licensed RDA.
In her free time she likes to do yoga and explore nature.
Autumn Sandoval, Registered Dental Assistant
I was born and raised in the DFW area. I’m the youngest of 3 by 13 years. I was homeschooled throughout high school and my program was called American School where I graduated in 2018. I also did my dental assisting courses and graduated in 2018 through UTA Arlington. I found my love of dentistry from seeing patients reactions when we helped them get a smile they loved and it became my passion to help them. I started my career as a treatment coordinator so I know dentistry all around as a whole which helped a lot in explaining things. And It has now been 3 years I have been in dentistry.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, eating good food and shopping.
