The Castro is well-known in San Francisco as the gay center of the city. It started to become a mecca for gay residents as long ago as the 1960’s and today the population is predominantly lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender.

Castro Street was named for Jose Castro (1808-1860) who was a leader of Mexican opposition to US rule in California, and the whole area subsequently became known as The Castro. It is a very diverse area with many fine bars, including Twin Peaks, the Harvey Milk Plaza (named after The Castro’s most famous resident), the GLBT Museum (only the second one in the world, after the one in Berlin), Pink Triangle Park, The Hot Cookie Bakery – famous for its’ coconut maroons – and of course events such as Pink Saturday, Castro Street Fair, the Dyke March, and the international film festival.

Tooth Decay Is An Equal Opportunities Destroyer

Whether you are a part of the LGBT community or not, unfortunately tooth decay is an equal opportunities destroyer. Anyone can suffer from it, and most people do as they age. Fortunately, in the 21st century technology has come on in leaps and bounds and where there was once no alternative to dentures today we have dental implants.

There are several very good dentists in The Castro but as in most things health related there are very many different specialties. For instance, if you needed a heart transplant you wouldn’t see a general doctor: you would go to a heart surgeon.
