Meet the team
Our friendly team is extremely effective in making patients feel right at home, especially those with dental anxiety. We love to know what is going on in our patients’ lives—we encourage you to share with us personal events or celebrations and equally can be a shoulder to lean on when things aren’t going your way. We believe that the relationships we cultivate with our patients allow for the best personal and treatment experience.
Our orthodontic assistants have years of experience in treating patients with excellent care and compassionate care, and we are the only office in Santa Barbara whose orthodontic assistants have the highest level of licensure called the O.A.P.
