We are new to Santa Barbara and needed a dentist in town for the family. Dr. Cooper was rec. through a co-worker at Deckers. My daughter and I went first. They took great care of us, explained the health of our teeth and arranged prompt cleaning follow up appointments. The whole staff is very helpful and courteous. Our whole family has a new dentist.

Whilst visiting California, I had the worst tooth ache. Luckily we were on our way to Santa Barbara and found Dr Michael Cooper's practice on google. I can't say enough about Dr Cooper and his staff, they were all FANTASTIC. Dr Cooper saw me immediately without an appointment because I was in so much pain, and dealt with my tooth immediately. If you need to see a Dentist in Santa Barbara then don't look any further. They will take great care of you.

This guy sent me a bizarre letter "dispatienting" me on the basis that I resisted x-rays pushed by his hygenist due to my pre-existing cancer circumstances. He didn't even have the courtesy to talk to me about it. Over the years his emphasis got more and more on big item work and less on services. His staff is pleasant but has made several mistakes over the time I was with them, most to the profit of his pocket if not caught. The hygenists change frequently which makes one suspect he is using new folks who work for cheap. (My previous DDS had same hygenist for about 7 years as I recall.) You can find a better and more caring professional.

Michael R. Cooper, DDS replied:

Patient care is our #1 priority. Any pre-existing health problem when shared with us, brings along a even higher standard of care that MUST be met according the ADA. If those standards of care are not met to ensure patient health then the patient falls into a catagory of supervised neglect and this a liability issue. Dr. Cooper sets a very high standard for the quality of care our hygienist must be able to provide to our patients. He expects the very best from his team. NO EXCEPTIONS! We are sorry you are disappointed that Dr. Cooper can loner treat you. Your overall health is Dr. Cooper's primary concern and feels another can provide you with your standard of care.
