Dr. Rai is by far the best dentist I've ever experienced in my dental life. The dental treatment I had done was very extensive however the results are absolutely incredible. I can't stop smiling. I've always had a pleasant experience at Santa Barbara Dental Spa. The office is so relaxing, the staff is friendly and eager to make you feel as comfortable as possible and the technology is top notch. Dr. Rai has a very calm demeanor and you can tell he truly cares about his patients. He's knowledgeable and always openly communicates with me about the agenda for each visit, no surprises. I've referred him to all my co-workers and friends and they always seem to have the same feedback. I am very appreciative of all the services I've received and would continue to recommend him as a dentist!
