Introducing Our New TKDDS Clinic Director, Darcy Castaneda!

A message from Darcy:

I am excited and thrilled to be joining such a great practice as the Clinic Director!

A little about my role here; I am lucky to be able to assist with Dr. Kaur’s wonderful growing practice. I will be assisting in the day to day business and clinical operations to help ensure a positive patient experience!

A little about my background; I have been in the dental industry for over 15 years.  I was first trained as a dental assistant and moved into dental hygiene not long after that.  I graduated at a Dental Hygienist in 2002.  Several years into working as a hygienist I decided to branch off into education where I worked as a Clinical Dental Hygiene Instructor at Argosy University.  While teaching part-time I also remained clinical and worked as a part-time hygienist.  Going back to school to get my Bachelors has always been a goal of mine.  In 2016 I graduated from Capella University with my Bachelors in Healthcare Management.  This led me on a path to transition from clinical into practice management.  That path has led me here!

Now a little about me personally; I was born and raised in Minnesota and reside in Bloomington and have 2 girls named Isabelle and Audry (12 and 8).  We are a family that LOVES animals.  We have 5 pets total; 3 cats (Tinkerbell, Mickey, and Nerd) and 2 guinea pigs (Popcorn and Oreo).  I am sure that the animal family will evolve over the years to come!  In my spare time I love to garden, travel, volunteer, exercise, hanging with my family, and house projects (my house is in constant state of remodeling) .

I look forward to meeting you, come say Hi!  -Darcy
