Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dukes "Our office says it all.  Located on the Mesa of Santa Barbara we enjoy direct ocean views and sea breezes through our french doors.  Our patient chairs all have massagers and back heaters.  Above each patient chair is a HDTV to make the time pass more pleasantly.  State of the art equipment well beyond the typical dentist is utilized to make the procedures more precise and quicker.  A seasoned, advanced trained staff and a doctor treat all aspects of dentistry and several specialties.  Dr. Dukes has spent years as a faculty member at UCLA school of dentistry and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orofacial Pain.  

We treat each patient as a family member.  We have been on the Mesa for 38 years and count thousands of Mesa residents as our family members.  We invite you to be treated the best and join our family."
