I received a tooth implant which failed. When I went back I heard the doctor say to his assistant that they were having a lot of problems with these. After having to pay for more xrays they said it would cost upwards of $2000 to fix. I am now going to my normal dentist who had a very hard time getting info from Johnson about the type of implant I had. Finally my dentist will be doing the reconstruction.

Would not recommend under any circumstances. I’m guessing they only share the positive reviews here. Yelp gives a more accurate picture. Everyone I know has had a bad experience here. Terrible management. They don’t return patient phone calls. I had an exam in October and was told by the dentist that based on my x-rays, I likely had an abscessed tooth and would need a root canal. They did a CT scan to confirm and I was told that someone would call me in a few days with the results. No one ever called. I called for 5 months as my tooth got worse and each time I explained the whole situation and each time I was told someone would call me back right away. No one ever did. The last time I called someone finally admitted that they didn’t have a CT scan on file for me because someone had lost it. It took 5 months and multiple conversations with different people in the practice for them to admit they had made a mistake. There was no ownership or apology for ignoring my phone calls for 5 months. I told them I wanted my records sent to me because I was transferring to a new dentist. Not surprisingly, they never sent my records. Then they called me a month later to confirm my cleaning appointment and told me I would be charged if I didn’t cancel in time even though I’m no longer a patient. Johnson Family Dental is a joke. There are much better options in Santa Barbara.

In roughly 8 1/2 months, my appearance has improved greatly. Now, when I stand in front of a mirror I do not immediately hear the sound of glass shattering. What a nice change! I have signed up for acting lessons and have reserved my chunk of sidewalk in Hollywood.

Seriously, your Doctor Hlavaty and his DA Arecelli performed a miracle in my behalf. There is absolutely no doubt that they make a crack team and can perform dental magic for their patients.

I am so grateful to them and for all the courtesies extended to me by the girls in the front office. Your team would be very hard to beat.

Thank you for all the little "extras" you provided me, as well, and know that I will be back and also know that I will be recommending your fine team to my friends in Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria.

Took my truck on time and finished putting my new tires on with a balance and alignment in less than 2 hours. They called me when they were done. Very happy with the service and my new tires!
