Walking into the lobby, you’ll be warmly greeted by the front desk receptionist who welcomes you with a genuine smile. Also, Dr. Martinez is one of the sweetest dentists I’ve ever been to! Not only is she sympathetic to your needs; she is also very professional and truly displays care, letting you know that she will take great care of your teeth and get it back to a healthy status. The dental hygienist, Kimberly, who has been caring for my teeth has also been nothing short of fantastic! She doesn’t appear rushed and takes her time with explaining what she’s doing before she starts a procedure and is forthcoming with answers when asked a question. Overall, the staff display a general sense of empathy and make you feel as comfortable as possible. I recommend anyone looking for a dentist to come here!

I am new to this dentist practice and I found GOLD! I was apprehensive of getting fast braces, but Dr. Martinez reassured me of the great success and she was absolutely right. I am coming up to 2 months with Fast Braces, and my teeth have moved so much – I’m so excited! I’m also sleeping so much better with the jaw realignment going on, it’s pretty neat. The whole staff is friendly and very patient-oriented. I highly recommend getting Fast Braces, so much quicker than Invisalign and it works! 🙂

Dr. Martinez and her colleagues have been so professional and supportive in helping me take care of my dental health. I used to be an incredibly nervous patient and the caring folks at Riviera Smiles have patiently and continuously coached me into being more relaxed and excited about taking care of my teeth. You’ll find a warm, non-judgmental, encouraging atmosphere from the receptionist’s desk to the dental chair. Highly recommend.

Dr. Anna Martinez and her team are incredible! Every single employee there shows compassion and really cares about getting your teeth and gums healthy! I’ve had a few procedures here, and every time I go, I am greeted and made feel welcome. Aside from their exceptional service, their equipment is very modern and they even have massage chairs ! Thanks Dr. Ana Martinez and Team!

Dr. Martinez is an amazing dentist.  She took the time to discuss my concerns and offer different options. She asked good questions and explained details. Really refreshing to feel like you are participating on your dental health choices and not just having your mouth worked on. Plus she has a state of the art office with the latest technology and everything you need to have a painless visit to the dentist.

Jesse W. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I called about a broken tooth and Dr. Martinez had me in the next morning! Within 10 minutes of showing up, they had my paperwork and billing done. The equipment was brand new – no scraping for half an hour. The staff was kind, caring and fun. I cannot recommend this office enough. They turned a horrible experience into a pleasant one!

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


Our whole family loves & trusts Ana! Dr. Martinez and staff are truly THE BEST. Dr. Martinez takes the time to explain everything, makes you feel safe & comfortable, and has an impressive attention to detail. Whether it’s a standard cleaning or a tooth extraction we leave feeling well cared for…thank you Ana!!!

I highly encourage anyone requiring dental work to see Dr. Martinez before having dental work. She is very sensitive to the individual needs of each patient. The experience was very rewarding and she worked with me on the pricing and discounts which made this very favorable in comparing to any other dentist in the area. The quality of workmanship was superior. The staff was very amicable and my wife and I are completely satisfied with the work that their team has done. Bravo

Liz S. from Menlo Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE THESE PEOPLE!! They hooked me up big time. Kathy at the front desk, Phoebe as the hygienist and of course Dr. Riviera herself. Extremely easy to set up an appointment. They were so accommodating and professional. And then when I went in they way exceeded my expectations – taking care of my cavity in a permanent way, quickly, efficiently and expertly. Plus they were so kind and the office is lovely. You can trust this business. Big thumbs UP

Barbara F. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


She’s just plain amazing. On every visit, you’ll discover wonderful new qualities about Dr. Martinez–her expertise, craft, patience, concern, and devotion to her field–but she’s resolutely modest about how brilliantly talented she is. Certainly, I appreciate how Dr. Martinez equips herself with the latest technogies and techniques, and explains every procedure in gentle detail. But what also sets her apart are the lyrics. Sometimes, as music streams into the room, she’ll quietly, with a joyful lilt, chime into the chorus. I know she loves her work. And I’m pretty certain her patients adore her.

Derin S. from Summerland, CA (Source: Yelp)


In need of a new dentist, I remembered the write up about Riviera Smiles in The Journal, so when I saw the office on Coast Village it rang a bell and I decided to walk in. I am so glad I did! What a great staff and office. I got a good feeling about Riviera and booked a check-up/cleaning.  Dr. Martinez was fantastic. The office is nice, with all new state of the art equipment.  No more old school scraping and polishing, the new technology was much more pleasant and my teeth felt like a million bucks afterwards. I am already recommending them to my friends and clients.

I had severe tooth pain and visited Dr. Martinez on short notice. She had to refer me to a specialist who treated me immediately and with good results. I returned to Dr. Martinez for regular dentistry needs and the treatment was professional and pain free. Her staff is delightful and efficient. It is nice to have such friendly Dental service right on Coast Village Rd.

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


Having my teeth cleaned at Riviera Smiles was a fantastic experience. Top of the line X-ray machine and sedation, comfortable massage chairs, relaxing atmosphere, professional staff, great location and plenty of parking. No bitewings or noisy instruments.  Dr. Martinez is personable and caring. She explained everything in detail and made sure I was comfortable from beginning to end. I even got to see pictures of my teeth on an iPad! I highly recommend Riviera Smiles.

Lizzie W. from  CA, CA (Source: Yelp)


Riviera Smiles is the best dental service I’ve ever had. I’ve had many different dentists after moving out of the area and no one compares to Riviera Smiles. I would recommend Dr. Martinez to everyone. The whole staff is so friendly, kind, and helpful. I had regular cleanings there for years and got invisalign at Riviera Smiles too.

Hammy G. from Miami, FL (Source: Yelp)


There should be a 6star rating! Dr Martinez is awesome!! She’s knowledgable , great side manners, dedicates her time and effort to best care possible even when an emergency, which was my case while visiting the area. Called several doctors around and all wanted to have a pre-consult, a formal appointment, etc etc Dr Martinez’s staff put me on hold while consulting with her and coordinated my emergency case. Dr M, advised on what to do best. After returning home, my dentist told me that the work done was impeccable. Thank you Dr Martinez!!! Ps. The offices are modern, with the most advanced technology and prices are very very reasonable.

I have been going to Riviera Smiles for a few years now and have had nothing but great experiences. My teeth are better than ever because of Dr. Martinez and the rest of the staff. I recommended them to my Mom and she has been going there for a year or so now as well! They truly care about their patients and go out of their way to make you comfortable and relaxed while in the dentist chair. I also love that they have good music playing throughout their offices!

Adriana S. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I always look forward to my dental visits!!! Dr.Martinez and her staff  are always so warm & welcoming! Today I had my cleaning done by Magdalena and I can’t help but rave about what a amazing job she did! She was gentle, did a very throw cleaning and gave me some great tips on keeping my teeth healthy between my cleanings!! I had my Invisalign treatment here and my teeth look amazing!! Thank you ladies as always, I can’t wait to see you for my next cleaning!

I love to visit with Dr. Martinez at Riviera Smiles! First of all the staff is wonderful, super polite and looking after my absolute comfort during my appointment. The music, the room temperature is kind of a private experience -nothing like the old fashion dentist experience. The office is beautiful with modern equipment and then Dr. Martinez comes in and I feel as though she is my friend of 30 years who happens to be a dentist so thoughtful and cool. I have had a few emergencies and Dr. Martinez has gone above and beyond the duty of call to treat me. My teeth will forever be threaded by this dentist because when it comes to teeth you get what you pay for and this dentist is gold. Thank you Dr. Martinez.

I avoided dentist visits at all cost, but Dr. Ana Martinez and her entire team have completely changed my ways. I have never been at such ease at a doctor’s office. Not only was every part of the visit painless – even the novocaine shot was easy – but the office environment is joyful and supportive. All my questions and concerns where thoroughly answered and I felt in excellent hands the entire time. I had an exam, a cleaning, and 4 fillings and left the office feeling great. I can’t recommend this practice enough. I will no longer trust anyone else with my teeth! Plus everyone that works there is simply delightful!

Hunter S. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


Awesome service with a great attitude! I have two brothers with Autism and it takes a mindful kind of person to take care of them, but both Dr. Martinez and her assistants had the perfect temperament for keeping them happy and calm during their treatment. Very happy to say we’ll be coming here again for our next cleaning!

Chris G. from Oxnard, CA (Source: Yelp)


Not a Yelper but I believe more people should know the great service this office provides. How many usually don’t contact a dentist until its too late and a tooth is hurting? Well this girl does. Dentists have always made me nervous but this office made that all change, I got a cleaning from Dr Martinez and she was more than thorough with what she was about to do, during the cleaning she continuously asking if I was okay and explained what to expect especially when I was going to feel some discomfort, she did not sugar coat anything and her honesty I appreciated the most. Also I needed a root canal and had to get referred, the doctor available wasn’t going to be until August 8th but seeing as I was in pain Dr Martinez and her amazing staff helped me get in that day, I couldn’t believe it and am forever grateful. Her and her entire staff from reception to assistants were very professional, compassionate welcoming, and importantly knowledgeable. I wasn’t just a customer to them that day, they cared about my pain and advocated for me to get the treatment I needed. Ill always recommend this office because they genuinely care for their patients.

Dr Martinez is a very knowledgeable, caring, professional and responsive dentist. Her work with my issues has been outstanding. In addition, on a holiday, in an emergency, she found a way to get me into a great endodentist the next day, walked me through the issues, and get my fractured tooth extracted within 36 hours. Incredible. Highly recommend Dr Martinez at RIVERIA SMILES, Santa Barabra. Dave and Julie L.

Riviera Smiles gets a solid five star rating, my dental experience here has honestly changed the way I feel about going to the dentist. The brand new and beautiful ambience, sparkly clean atmosphere with a modern feel. It really took me back the moment I walked in, it felt like an art gallery not a cold dental office. Greeted warmly, it was very welcoming. If thats not enough the dental chairs are so modern, soft and have built in massage! Dr. Martinez is such a caring person, she is very personable and professional. She is calm and has warm, motherly energy. She takes the time to get to know each patient, and educates each person on the problems and how to take care of their teeth. She is very soft and makes sure every step of the way is handled with love and care. I went in for a cleaning and was taken back with the new technology and the way she cleaned my teeth it was exponential. My second experience was a cavity, I used to dread getting shots and fillings, however, I could have fallen asleep during the procedure. I was truly in shock that going to the dentist could be so enjoyable. This is my first ever review, an experience this good was not going to go without saying. Thank you Dr. Martinez and Rivera Smiles for opening my eyes to what a dental experience should be like.

I had to have some extensive dental work done. I was nervous about it and a bit anxious while in the chair. Dr. Ana Martínez was and is so kind, so professional. She helped me to feel at ease and very comfortable. She was very aware of my wellbeing and in taking the best care of me. Her work is thorough, fast, professional and pain free. I trust her and her staff completely. Thank you Dr. for doing a fantastic job on my teeth and for taking such good care of me. My teeth look so good, so pretty!!! Thank you.

Everyone at Riviera Smiles is wonderful. The staff is super friendly and Dr. Martinez is an incredibly caring dentist. She will go out of her way to make you feel comfortable and to provide you with the best dental care possible.  P.S. If you go in for a cleaning, be sure to check out the massage chair feature…it is pretty cool!

Gunnar T. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


My warmest recommendations to DR. Ana Martinez, Riviera Smiles. Ana Martinez is a professional, experienced and caring dentist, DDS. The Riviera Smiles dental team are all knowledgeable and very trustworthy. They are using the latest technology and the atmosphere is professional, genuinely warm and caring. Important qualities to me when choosing my dentist.

Colleen B. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a wonderful experience at Riviera Smiles! Dr. Martinez and her team have amazing customer service and bedside manner, on top of being extremely knowledgable. The office is beautiful and welcoming, particularly for those nervous about visiting the dentist like myself. They were able to accept by Cigna insurance. I will be returning for all my dental visits.

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


EXCELLENT / EXCELENTE / AUSGEZEICHNET I have lived in several places around our planet. My teeth showed work from several different dentists and countries. Since I arrived in Carpinteria in 2004, I had tried many dentists, both in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. Always I felt treated first as a profit center, a revenue account. At last in 2014 I discovered Riviera Smiles — Advanced Dentistry. Dr Ana Martinez is the first dentist, in this region, with whom I feel completely safe and comfortable. She leads and mentors her excellent staff in such a positive way that they make a great team. Dr Martinez is trilingual (English, Spanish, and German). She embodies the rich experience and mindset formed through living, studying, and practicing dentistry in Peru, Germany. and the US. We are very lucky, in south SB County, to have Dr Martinez, her advanced dentistry skills, and her team.

Bob D. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went here recently for a cleaning and this was the best dental experience I have ever had hands down. They even have massage chairs that are great while getting any work done. For x-rays, all you have to do is stand up and bite down onto a piece of plastic and the machine rotates around your entire head. No more individual pieces crammed down your throat! New equipment, a caring doctor who takes time to aid in any way, top of the line equipment, and a friendly staff, all make this the Rolls Royce of any dental practice!

OMG!! It was my first ever visit today and all I can say is WOW! All aspects of my visit were unbelievable. First, the ease of scheduling and pre-visit communication were impressive. They even moved my boyfriend up a bit in the afternoon so that we could come in together. And after finding out I was back to back with appointments everyone jumped in to ensure I got out on time. Those are great pieces but the staff’s professional, compassionate and expert care was what truly won me over. My cleaning was the BEST cleaning I’ve had in my life. All the while being done while in a massaging chair, leaned back with beautiful rotating landscapes in front of me on a screen. Just perfect! Dr. Martinez truly cares about each patient detail, and her warmth and smile fills the rooms. What an amazing person just to be around. Congrats to the entire office for doing the best job ever!!! HIGHLY recommend this office to anyone/ everyone- any questions I’m happy to answer!

Dr. Ana Martinez Is a master at what she does!! it appears that she is a general dentist but she just did a crown for me and then veneers on my top10 top teeth!! Everything is perfect!! I am so happy!! Her focus, stamina, commitment to excellence, and sensitivity to her staff and bottom line – the patient is something I’ve never seen before in dentistry! On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d say she’s a 20!

Beth G. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really can’t say enough good things about Dr. Ana Martinez and the practice she has built. Over the years she has repaired my receding gums, filled cavities, created a crown for a bad tooth and joyfully taught my children the best dental care practices. The office is state of the art. Her staff is professional and caring. And she is a virtual dental magician! Thank you friend. You’re amazing.

In years past when I’ve had dental work done, my teeth would hurt a bit for a couple of days. My last dental work was with Dr. Ana; I’d neglected my teeth for about 7 years so much work needed to be done; much more than usual — but afterward I was surprised to have little discomfort. Beyond being an expert in safe, healthy & leading edge dentistry Dr. Ana is a very sweet, kind and thoughtful person. She is like a dear friend giving her best to everyone — treating me, her staff and all her patients with so much respect and love. She’s the best. I am blessed to find such a amazing being to trust for my dental care.

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


Dr. Martinez is a blessing! She is kind and very nurturing, explains everything in detail but most importantly she takes her time, nothing is rushed. Her office is gorgeous, clean, her staff is very genuine. Between the good music, massage chair and  her gentle touch my dental visits are actually fun. I highly recommend Riviera Smiles!
