We’ve been giving the Central Coast something to smile about since 2002.

For over 20 years, Smiles on Clark has been providing Santa Barbara and SLO Counties with the very best in cosmetic and restorative dentistry.

Dental Technology & Expertise

We are proud to provide a state-of-the-art facility for the highest quality dental care available. It is one of our top priorities to protect the well-being of our valued patients. For this reason, our office meets and surpasses all OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and CDC (Center for Disease Control) standards. We continually pursue excellence through continuing education, personal and team growth, and mastery of leading-edge technology in order to deliver first-class, five-star dental care.

Patient-Focused Dental Care

As a dental office that is committed to being patient-centered, our mission is to be here for you. Our patients are the number one focus of our practice, which is why we are committed to a philosophy of dentistry which we call “Lifetime Care.” We grow to know our patients so well and care for them so much as people so that we always know what they need and how they want to be treated. We educate our patients about the connection between healthy teeth and gums and optimal health for life, and we always deliver the highest possible level of care with compassion, empathy, and understanding.

We always respect our patients’ time and accept them as partners in their wellness while assuming a leadership role as a resource—an expert source of information with concern for your overall well-being. And we always go above and beyond to meet and exceed your expectations.

We are confident that you will feel right at home in our office as we welcome all patients as if they were family.
