Castagnolo Dental Laboratory got its start in 1977. While attending West Valley College in 1970, I worked in a San Jose dental office as a technician and assistant to pay for school. After transferring to California State University San Diego in 1972, I found a job at Culver Dental Lab where I was able to perfect my lab skills while attending college. After several years in the lab field I was hooked and moved back to San Jose to open our laboratory. In 1977 we opened our first office in Cupertino. Loretta came into my life in 1983. She has been a technician for over 39 years having received her CDT ceramics in 1974. I received my CDT in C&B in 1977, and a CDT in Ceramics in 1981. Our passion for quality lab work has kept us busy for over 35 years. Aside from working in the lab, Loretta and I are active members in Global Legacy Programs providing humanitarian aid world wide. We have traveled to Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador on various aid trips providing dental care in the Amazon and bringing medical and dental supplies to various communities throughout the Andes. In Loretta's off time, she enjoys gardening and working on and teaching arts & crafts. And we enjoy indulging our five Grandchildren whenever we can.
