To Whom It May Concern, It is with joy and privilege that I share my experience under the care of Dr. David Hall. In 2010 I was referred to Dr. Hall for a tooth problem and possible extraction. In no time Dr. Hall’s office scheduled my appointment. After the routine paperwork, I just wanted whatever needed done to happen without so much delay. The waiting room was quite lit up with a well maintained aquarium gazing the center of the area. That piece of décor is actually quite calming, I should say for anyone, both young and old. As I waited anxiously in the exam room Dr. Hall came in and with an assistant said hello and extended his hands to me. His gesture certainly put me at ease. Dr. Hall was incredibly gentle and patiently explained the procedure and asked me how I was feeling. Before long it was over. I could not be in better hands! With post-op instructions in hand, I was sure that the healing would go well. It was a blessing to have a positive dental experience with Dr. Hall. I do not even recall discomfort during the whole process and thereafter. His professional expertise and remarkable experience is highly commendable indeed.

Dr. Hall is a wonderful Oral Surgeon!! I needed bone grafting surgery and dental implants. I really unexpectedly enjoyed the process thanks to the skill of Dr. Hall and all of the staff that I came into contact with at Santa Barbara Oral Surgery. The bone grafts were completely painless, as I opted for anesthesia. I didn’t have any bruising or pain afterwards. Waiting for the grafts to take and then implants was a lengthy process, and not cheap but really worth every penny. All of the staff I met at both offices was really friendly and helpful. The office on Pedregosa does have the bonus of an amazing aquarium. I am so pleased with the final result. I can smile, eat apples and don’t have to think about failing teeth or worse dental appliances.

I am just now recovering from very extensive oral surgery including extractions and implants which were performed by Dr. Marc Bienstock and staff. Rave reviews are appropriate for the pleasantness of his staff and the comforting reception I received from the moment that I walked into the office. Dr. Bienstock has a warm and soothing manner and style that put me at ease immediately. He answered all of my questions and explained each of the procedures so completely that I had no doubt that he was absolutely the surgeon for me. On several occasions I needed to reach him by phone and he was always available. The day of surgery, his assistants who did the prepping put me at ease immediately and dissolved any of the tension that I felt when I came to the office. Because I was asleep during the entire procedure, the only memory is of Dr. Bienstock talking to me as he was putting the medication into my arm. The procedure itself was a complete success. I am recovering quickly and with surprisingly little pain or swelling. Of course I followed all of the written instructions that were given to me when I left the office. I cannot imagine any oral surgeon in town being more professional, more personable, more knowledgeable or more skilled than Dr. Bienstock. His reputation as “one of the best” is well founded. I would recommend him to anyone in town who needs any type of dental surgery that he is qualified to render. I was completely pleased with all phases of the procedure.

My 5 children and I have been patients of Dr. Bienstock for many years. He removed my children’s wisdom teeth with virtually no pain, anxiety or complications. When we moved here 9 years ago, I especially needed Dr. Bienstock on several occasions for my neglected teeth. Dr. Bienstock and his office staff are totally devoted and experienced professionals. They love what they do! I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

As a local dentist whose patients include many individuals with oral surgery needs (especially in the setting of extractions and implants), I have had the occasion to discuss with my patients their experiences with a variety of oral surgeons and to observe the relevant surgical outcomes. When I found myself to be in need of the advice and care of such a specialist, in a challenging setting involving many of my teeth I sought the help of Dr. Bienstock based on the satisfaction expressed by our mutual patients, the success of their treatments, his surgical skills and judgment, the clarity of his communications and for his gentle and caring approach. I continue to treat with him and can endorse without reservation the quality of his care, his adherence to the highest standards of professionalism and his friendly and helpful staff. Santa Barbara is fortunate to have in Dr. Bienstock an oral surgeon of such talent and thorough dedication to his patients.
