Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

My three adult children and myself love this dental practice. Everyone is professional and have high standards in regards to all dental care. They deserve a triple A+  in patient care. You never stop wanting the best for your children no matter how old they get. Those of us over 65 yrs need that extra care so we can keep enjoying crunchy apples.

Hands down the friendliest staff I have ever encountered in a dental office. Every single person I interacted with was kind and seemed to enjoy what they were doing. Not to mention they are very upfront with you about costs and won’t do anything without your consent. I am so glad I found this place

Just moved to Santa Barbara and after a run-in with a toffee candy and my crown, the crown lost, I called Dr. Jeffrey Stratford-Jones’ office and they fit me in quickly, even as a new patient. Dr. Jones is very professional, gentle (as is his staff) and I can tell he knows his stuff. They made my unpleasant circumstances pleasant.

Eric P. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a regular patient of Dr. Stratford-Jones for the past several years and have had nothing but great experiences working with him and his team. From regular cleanings and exams to fillings and a couple of crowns, the service has been great and professional and I always feel like I’m being well taken care of by qualified professionals. I would also like to add that my entire family goes to Dr. Stratford-Jones and we are all completely satisfied.We have no reason to go anywhere else. I will admit there was a lady at the front desk who seemed rather bitter but that was quite some time ago and I believe she has been let go. In my opinion, this one person does not reflect the quality of the care I have received, nor the competence of Dr. Stratford-Jones and his team. I also know that Dr. Stratford-Jones and his team are making a strong effort to solicit feedback from their patients in an attempt to improve customer service. This is an ongoing process and they are doing a great job. Finally, my family and I are very satisfied with Dr. Stratford-Jones and his team. I think any negative reviews posted here on Yelp are from a few sour grapes, which exist in any business, and the reality of the situation is that this is a great dental office with caring and qualified professionals.

Our family has been with Dr Jones for over 20 years. Going to the dentist is never a fun experience. But with Dr. Stratford-Jones, we really get the best dental care possible. The staff is knowledgeable, kind, friendly, and experienced. And Dr. Jones is really the as good as it gets. He never pushes his opinion, but counsels and explains clearly so I get to make the best (guided) decision for my own mouth. His work is gentle and precise. I have even now convinced my Mom to come see him, because he is just that good.

After a horrible previous experience at another dentist office, this was a breathe of fresh air. I was welcomed by a friendly receptionist. They keep their office very clean and tidy and comfortable. I felt very taken care of and made a priority. Everyone I met was friendly and helpful and smart. The cleaning was gentle, I’m used to a little more intensive cleanings but I think they took care of what I needed.

K.Robyn L. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve reviewed this office before. But they deserve a revisit. Because dentists give me the heebie-jeebies. You really have to twist my arm to get me in a chair. However From the front desk to the hygenists to the dentists, the team at this office orients themselves around the patient’s experience and overall dental health. They never try to upsell me some product I don’t need. They never make me feel bad about the fact that I DON’T ALWAYS (EVER) FLOSS. (Last time, the hygienist was like, ‘so, you might want a hydro-floss thing. I think Costco has them.’ And I was like. ‘Yeah.’ Full stop. ‘Not, hey guess what, your teeth suck.’ Because what mother-of-three has time to floss?) The atmosphere at Stratford-Jones is positive, affirming, and knowledgeable. I’ve been ripped off by a lot of dentists in the past. This office has never recommended a treatment I don’t need; they always explain what they’re doing as they’re doing it; they never make me feel bad about my teeth. Really, that’s all we need.

I have been experiencing pain and (what I thought was) swollen gums for a few days. Not wanting to ignore a potentially serious situation, I finally decided to call, only to find out that patients are not seen on Fridays. I left a message on the phone number provided for emergencies, and very quickly received a call back from Lori. She was so sweet and asked me a few questions to relay. As luck would have it, Dr. Stratford-Jones was planning to come to the office briefly and offered to see me. I eagerly accepted, although felt a bit guilty for crashing his day off. 😉 Dr. Stratford-Jones was so kind and was very gentle in his exam. I did not feel rushed in the slightest; he was very thorough and took his time explaining that I actually have jawbone overgrowth. I haven’t been to the dentist in ages, mostly out of laziness and lack of time. I was expecting a bit of a scolding for being so neglectful, but Dr. Stratford-Jones did nothing of the sort. I am so grateful to have been seen so quickly. Thank you, Dr. Stratford-Jones!

It had been a very long time since I had been to a dentist and knew that the longer I waited the worst it would be. My biggest problem was that I had lost trust in my long time dental office after they expanded to a big-time large fancy office where I found them charging for unnecessary procedures. Fast forward 6years along with a promise to my husband and I landed at Dr Stratford-Jones office. My first phone call to investigate was informative and young ladies I spoke to were friendly and funny. I immediately knew this was my kind of place. Fast Forward 6years along with a promise to my husband and I landed at Dr. Stratford-Jones office. My appointment went as expected, I have a lot of work that needs to be done but despite my anxiety and limited resources, the doc and awesome staff explained everything, they were willing to work with me and I never felt pressured. I truly believe that a dentist can’t be GREAT unless his office staff is GREAT. Dr. Stratford-Jones has them! I can’t believe I’m saying it but I’m OK (not terrified) with going back.

Dr. Stratford-Jones and his team are friendly and professional.  They make sure you are comfortable and check how you are doing throughout your visit/procedure.  I feel confident that Dr. Stratford-Jones has the patients best interest in mind and doesn’t settle for mediocre. Overall very thankful to have found a great practice and that his team is pleasant, patient, and accommodating. Thank you!

The entire staff from the front desk to the chair were helpful and friendly. Although this was my first visit they made me feel like I had been a valued customer for years. They went out of their way to expedite the crown I desperately needed to make sure that I had it before I left on my trip. Thank you all

Imelda M. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a dental emergency a few weeks ago.  Two co-workers referred me to Dr. Stratford-Jones. I will preface by saying that I have had unpleasant experiences with local dentists in town and was terrified at the thought of having to see another dentist. They fit me in right away. I was also searching for alternative sedation either iv or nitrous, however my pain worsened and I went to see Dr. Stratford Jones, he was the most gentle doctor I’ve ever been to.  He and his staff walked me through the procedure and I was on my way in maybe an hour. I returned a few weeks later for more work. I have difficulties breathing and Dr. Stratford Jones was incredibly patient with me. I now enjoy seeing my dentist and his staff!

These guys are awesome. Just had an appointment for a couple fillings and it was easily the best dentist’s office experience that I’ve had. Everybody is friendly and professional and looking to answer any questions you might have. Would recommend to anybody looking for a good, reliable dentist.

This was my first time here as a new patient and the staff couldn’t have been nicer and more professional. Kind and warm yet everyone took the time to explain to me very thoroughly what they were doing and what they were finding via x-Rays, exam etc. I feel so very confident that this my new dentist for myself and my family. Thank you so much to my dental care team.

Bella S. from Goleta, CA (Source: Yelp)


Excellent. I found this place on Yelp and I was not disappointed. Everyone I interacted with was very friendly and knowledgeable, and I didn’t spend more than a minute in the waiting room both times I was there. My cleaning was thorough, and my other oral procedures went smoothly. I left in a good mood–feeling more educated on my dental health.

Annie C. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this place! I feel at ease with the level of care I receive. I had an older filling pop out (it was on the outside side of my bottom molar, near the gums) and noticed it’s disappearance when I drank water and felt sensitivity on my molar. After peering into the mirror as much as I could, I noticed a giant chunk of tooth missing! I called Dr. Stratford-Jones’ office and asked for a cancellation to get my molar looked at. They happened to have a same day appointment that they booked for me. I was told that they would look at my molar and see if it could be fixed right then. Upon arriving at the dentist’s office, Dr. Stratford-Jones and his colleagues were able to clean up and re-fill my molar! As always, stellar customer service.

Maily M. from Goleta, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Stratford-Jones for 16 years. In the whole 16 years, I have had nothing but great experiences there and would totally recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist. The only “gripe” is the limited parking. You just have to go at a good time… usually early AM. However, thanks to COVID, I’ve been able to find easy parking.. but I know this will change once everything is back to “normal”.

Awesome! Before I met Dr Stratford-Jones, I was TERRIFIED of dentists. The dentist is always aware of how much pain I am in and immediately will stop a procedure. His assistants are also most excellently trained. I have never felt forgiven a good review of a dentist office. Dr. Stratford Jones and Dr. Daniela are amazing!

This is the most thorough dental exam I have ever had. Dr. Stratford-Jones explained in details all of the issues of my teeth and gave solutions. The hygiene technician, Connie if I spell it correctly, worked very carefully to clean up some stains on my teeth. At some points I guess she fully focused on cleaning the teeth and forgot to suck the water in my mouth, let some of the water run out to my neck :).

Amanda C. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just had my first visit here and am very pleased with the service and friendliness of the staff. The steps they are taking for COVID safety were explained when I scheduled the appointment, I received reminder texts prior to the appointment which I appreciated. I do experience some anxiety when going for a cleaning but found some relief as all the steps of the appointment were explained to me before anything happened. I am happy to have found a dental office I finally feel comfortable at!

Dr Jeff Stratford-Jones was very professional – I got a groupon to get an Invisiline consultation – it turns out that I have a more complicated case, Dr Stratford Jones referred me to someone else – he was very honest and straightforward. I was impressed. The front desk girl was a bit of pain to ask for all info before I showed up – (I tried to put all info into the website but somehow the website wasn’t taking it) – when I got to the dentist’s office, it was a good experience.

Brian R. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone that works here is super friendly. The Doc is very good at what he does.  I cracked a tooth last night and due to my traveling schedule ahead of me, they were able to get me in the next day (today) and I’ll be back next week to get the official crown put in. For years, I’d go to ‘Johnson Family Dental’ in La Cumbre but that place could never tell me exactly how much a procedure was going to cost me.  The staff at Dr Stratford-Jones is nearly always able to tell me exactly how much the bill will be before I get the work done. And the Doc always seems to provide multiple options, one that will cost a little, and one that is optimal but will cost more.  If there are options, the patient should always get to choose, and ‘Johnson Family Dental’ never gave those less expensive options.
I definitely recommend these guys.

My entire family thinks that Dr. Jeffrey Stratford-Jones is the VERY BEST dentist, ever. His staff is extremely kind and helpful. Dr. Stratford-Jones is very talented and smart. We all appreciate his ability to do first class work, painlessly. He was recommended to us by the BEST orthodontist in SB! We highly recommend him, now, too!

My appointment for teeth cleaning yesterday was a “top rated experience”. I arrived on time for my appointment and was promptly greeted by the friendly staff. They took a digital photograph of me to add to my record to insure my identity. This is a great idea. I was in the chair within minutes of my arrival. The cleaning was thorough and comfortable. I got to wear cool sunglasses. My teeth are squeeking clean now. I experienced no soreness in my mouth or gums after the cleaning. I got a free toothbrush, floss, manufacturing coupons all in a small plastic case with a zipper from the happy staff. My next appointment was efficiently set. The staff thanked me for coming and made a point to say a heartfelt goodbye. Great people!

I went in today to get my teeth cleaned after avoiding the dentist for the past two years. I had a lot of apprehension since my previous dentist wasn’t very gentle in approach. Immediately walking in to Stratford-Jones’ office, you can tell that it’s an office of people who understand people with trepidation for the dentist office. The front desk woman whose name I think is Leslie (don’t quote me on that) is very friendly and extremely helpful and informative when it comes to finances and insurance. I had my teeth cleaned by Michelle who was one of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. She took time to explain how what she was doing worked and why and even took apart a tool to show me how it worked. It was very interesting and comforting to know. Dr. Stratford-Jones stepped in to talk about next steps and wasn’t quick to dive into any additional work, making it very obvious that they do not see their patients as piggy banks. To sum up a rather long winded review, Stratford-Jones is hands down the BEST experience I have EVER had at the dentist in my entire life. I’ll be more than happy to return for more work!

Jeffrey Stratford-Jones is a thoughtful dentist with good communication and personal approach. I chipped my tooth last night and this morning he fixed my tooth and I couldn’t  be happier with his professional Service, I now can smile again. I recommend Jeffrey Stafford Jones very highly his entire staff is extremely friendly.

Rachael O. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone here has excellent customer service skills and was very friendly. I’m new to the area, and I’m very happy to have found This office. I went for a teeth cleaning and they were very thorough and gentle and I left very happy and satisfied with the whole experience. I will definitely be back!!

Jeffrey Stratford-Jones is the go to guy for excellent dentistry. I had some work done on some fractured teeth today and I dreaded going to have them fixed. I need not have worried and I am so impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of all the personnel who worked on me. Wonderful experience!

Dr. Jeffrey Stratford-Jones is the place to go for your dental care and needs.  Dr. Stratford-Jones and his dental team are knowledgeable, gentle, take extra care in explaining why and what’s being done.  Even Laurie with the treatment plans is great!  The doc and staff are capable in solving what might be a challenge for others.  For example, I had a crown put on 12 years ago out of state.  That restorative dentist had a hard time with placement due to my small back teeth.  I move to Santa Barbara, crown pops off, since crown chipped I need a new crown.  I was terrified due to last doc’s hard time and experience.  I’m a new patient for Dr. Stratford-Jones and his team.  Yes, Dr. Stratford-Jones needed to do a little extra work on my back tooth but not a problem!  He knew just what to do and was gentle and accurate in getting the crown on to completion.  I’m so thankful, grateful and glad I chose this office for my dental care.
