Jackie Gilligan RDH, BS & Rita Castro RDH

Rita Castro, RDH

Rita was born and raised in New Jersey; marriage brought her to Montgomery County in 2008. She graduated from Middlesex County College. She practices with one goal; that oral health can be achieved if there is equal involvement from patient and clinician. (A partnership between the two)

This is why she is very passionate about educating and helping patients understand the importance of their oral health and their role in it. Rita has been a part of our team since 2013. She keeps herself involved in staying up to date with all the latest in dental education and technology to give her patients the best care possible.

In her free time she enjoys gardening with her husband Hugo and her 3 adorable yorkies.
