What People Have Said About Dr. Rolfe’s Dental Practice

“Relaxing environment, with complete confidence in doctor and staff. I don’t feel like a number here.”


“Thank you! I’m at an oasis! Gentle and safe! The best dental office I’ve ever been to!”


“I would like to say that I am lucky to have Dr. Rolfe as my dentist. I can honestly say that Dr. Rolfe is the best dentist I have come across.”


“I appreciate the thorough and sensitive approach to every aspect of my treatment by Dr. Rolfe. He seems to intuitively know when there is pain in the process and does not hesitate to back off. I never feel as though he is rushing to get the job done.”


“Numb and Ubangee as I feel, I truly am grateful for your gentle and thorough approach. It’s obvious that you are dedicated to the art and the profession of your work, and for that I thank you. I certainly would not hesitate to return for any further dental needs.”


“Couldn’t be more pleased with the forthright, clear, and professional work on my teeth, particularly because it was done in an emergency. I was made to feel quite confident in the final resolution to the problems remaining to be dealt with in the future.”


“Nice office, pleasant atmosphere, a doctor who is fun, too!”


“Dr. Rolfe has my confidence. We drove 200 miles to have the work done because I knew he had my best interest at heart and because I knew he would do a great job. The extractions and new partial went better than expected.”


‘I trust Dr. Rolfe implicitly and feel confident when he’s working. I am very grateful for many years of devoted and hard work on Dr. Rolfe’s part. He has always done a superb job on my teeth and/or my two sons’ teeth.”


“James is a pleasure to work with – the experience shows. And the next time he will play me saxophone solos.”


“I do look 15 years younger! Thank you! Nice office and work!”


“Very grateful for your wonderful work, and seeing at such short notice. I will be seeing you again, in fact will travel miles for your help, as I did this morning! Many, many thanks!”


“It was an easy time today and the bridge fits well. I’m glad I had a bridge. Dr. Rolfe’s consultations and my investigation to decide not to save the tooth; Dr. Rolfe took time to explain without charge, and checked my temporary situation without a fee.”


“Dr. Rolfe is very patient – and compared with my excellent dentist in San Francisco, Dr. Rolfe is very good as well. No pain, patient, fast!!


“Sometimes you get lucky! Worried about a cracked tooth discovered the night before, I arrived in Santa Barbara looking for an available dentist. Dr. Rolfe was recommended by the Four Seasons Hotel. We called and were pleased to find he was available the next morning. Tooth is fixed, better than new, and I learned more about the current state of my teeth than my home dentist had told me. Thanks lots! I may have found a new dentist 3,000 miles away.”


“I started with this office on August 31, being very cowardly. I almost didn’t show up. Tsk! Tsk! Long story short – Dr. Rolfe has done for me the impossible. Such a wonderful man. I have to say a million thank yous. His training is one of a kind. I treasure having met him, a dentist in Santa Barbara that really cares about his patients. We need more men like this. No dollar signs in his eyeballs!! Ha Ha!”


“Super job and thanks for taking me on so soon.”


“I had an abscessed tooth removed – no pain. Thank God. Dr. Rolfe did an excellent job.”


“I am very happy with the composite bonding in my front teeth. Not only they feel great but they made my front teeth look much better. I used to be able to feel the sharp ragged edges of my front teeth with my tongue. Not any more. Thanks for the high-quality dental care that you have been giving me.”


“Dr. Rolfe makes the work painless – I am so grateful. Thanks again.”


“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past us but through us. Thank you for the superb work!”


“Dr. Rolfe is one of the top ten dentists in the world! His dedication to his work and his clients is unsurpassable. His presence and the quality of his work is like a precious jewel. The office, the staff, everything about the experience is so wonderful. I am so very grateful and count my blessings to have been served so graciously.”


“Thank you for creating such an aesthetically rich environment. What a pleasure to come into this office – to be surrounded by drums, tropical plants, and a trickling fountain. I am surprised that Dr. Rolfe was the person who did the cleaning and the more technical poking and analysis. What a healthy pleasant experience. I appreciate knowing what was going to happen before it did. Thank you.”
