I have been going to Dr. Sowins since 2001. He is a terrific dentist with extremely high skill levels in all matters of oral health. A graduate of USC Dental School, he still stays current on the industry's best practices. Like him, his staff is professional and first rate. I am sincerely hoping that he continues to work until my death so that I don't have to find another dentist! I have lived literally all over the world, in many continents, and Dr. Sowins is one of the best if not THE best dentist in the country. I was not compensated for this endorsement!

Dr. Gotelli is the best dentist I've ever been to, hands down. He is knowledgeable, highly skilled, patient, and very kind. He repaired a chipped front tooth and it was impeccable! Also, his entire staff is wonderful: Trina is dental assistant supreme and I got the very best cleaning from Angela. I highly recommend you visit Dr. Gotelli!

I'd had a series of nightmare dentists in Santa Barbara for about 2 years and then landed at Dr. Gotelli's office - a breath of fresh air! It is the best overall healthcare experience I've ever had, and I've been going for my bi-annual cleanings now for almost 7 years. He and his staff always handle any problem, routine or emergency, with extreme professionalism, kindness, and top-notch care. I regularly recommend Dr. Gotelli to anyone searching for a dentist and they are always thrilled with the experience.

I've been seeing Dr. Gotelli for several years. Normally it's for a routine cleaning but 2 times now I've chipped my tooth and he fixes it so that it's as good as new! Chipping your front tooth & having a great dentist is priceless. Look no further for a dentist Dr. Gotelli is the best!!

Over Labor Day weekend I was visiting Santa Barbara and found myself in need of an emergency root canal. I got Dr. Gotelli's name from the hotel doctor and he was excellent. He called me the night before to discuss my symptoms and prescribe antibiotics. The next day he opened the office just for me in order to start the root canal. I wish I lived in Santa Barbara so he could be my regular dentist!

Dr. Gotelli and his amazing, kind, and professional staff replaced my front tooth with a flawless crown. It was completely painless, seriously, and the result is perfect. No one can tell that it's a crown...and I have huge teeth! Dr. Gotelli is so gabbing with you whilst your mouth is full of cotton or cracking jokes about your brushing habits. Also, it was easy to make appts and the 1515 State St. location is so convenient. I actually was able to walk from work to my appts. What a great dental experience!
