Albert Castro

Orthodontic Assistant


"I have been a RDA for 10 years. I am a very cheerful, positive person. I love to interact with my patients. Having short conversations goes a long way. Making patients feel comfortable is a must. When I am not working, you could find me singing in my car.  I enjoy cooking, hiking and biking.  Spending quality time with my wife makes me complete. My favorite part of working at Braces 2000 is that we value patients care above all else."

Nancy Carrasco

Receptionist / Treatment Coordinator


"I have been working in dentistry for over 16 years. Twelve of which have been with Dr. Tran. I have worked as a receptionist and treatment coordinator. One of the things I enjoy most about Ortho is to see how Braces changes a patient’s smile and transforms their lives. I have a husband, 3 amazing daughters that enrich my life every day. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading to my girls. Long walks to the park."
