I've had two different dentists in this office in Santa Barbara. Both the dentists and the dental assistants, as well as the office staff, have been awesome. Patient, kind, knowledgeable, listen to me, inform me, ask, recommend, and do great work. I left my other dentist of 25 years because of the new HMO dental plan, and although I miss the relationship, this office is excellent, and I'm not upset about a thing. I would recommend Gentle Dental of Santa Barbara.
