A State-of-the-Art Practice Where Every Patient Is Welcome

At Castle Hills Family Dental, our personal approach to dentistry is present in everything we do. From helping you prepare for your appointment to completing your dental treatment, our attentive team is dedicated to meeting your unique oral health needs. Dr. Rafael Mercado has equipped our Castle Hills, TX, office with the latest technology including:

  • A CEREC® in-office milling unit, which allows us to create same-day dental crowns and other restorations.
  • The GALILEOS® Comfort PLUS 3-D scanner to more accurately diagnose conditions and enhance treatment planning.
  • An Odyssey® diode laser for minimally invasive, virtually painless periodontal treatment. 

These advanced tools help our team provide more efficient, precise treatment and better outcomes.

We continually receive referrals from other dentists who trust our techniques and innovative use of technology.

Whether you are visiting our practice for a simple teeth whitening treatment or a complex full mouth reconstruction with dental implants, we perform each procedure with a high level of care, attention, and skill.
