Dr. Hurtado is the best dentist in Santa Barbara. His attention to detail and concern for his patients is unlike any dentist I have ever seen. The staff work hard to create a comfortable environment for his patients and, last but not least his office is a 10 minute walk from the beach!!
Extremely professional, Great Dentist. Office is clean and uses all of the latest technology. I have been to many different Dentist and without a doubt Dr. Hurtado has provided the best level of service.
