Dr. Rai and his staff were fantastic. I was feeling pain on both sides of my mouth. I called and they were able to get me in the following morning. They put me at ease and did a great job. I would highly recommend Dr. Rai.

Santa Barbara Dentist Testimonials
Dr. Rai easily made me feel zero pain during my 3-hour & 4-hour appointments. I left Johnson Family Dental after too many mess ups on their part. I came to this new dentist hoping for a good change. It has been. Personable, honest, and a perfectionist. His staff is very kind as well.

I love coming here! I had my wisdom teeth removed last year and had a great experience. Juanita, who works the front desk, is so friendly and motherly, she made me feel at home. She even called to check up on my recovery. Great place to go and feel relaxed, especially since Dentists can be scary at times.
