The dental team at Santa Barbara Dental Spa understands the anxiety that often accommodates visits to the dentist. That’s why they’ve designed their dental office for relaxation. Here, the ambient sounds of the dental office, such as the whir of the drill and the loud clicks of “Chewing for Beginners” classes, give way to soothing sounds of a waterfall. Meanwhile, scented treatment rooms court nostrils with aromatherapy. At the technological end, digital x-rays guard patients against the doses of radiation emitted by traditional x-rays, and water laser tools virtually eliminates the grinding, heat, and skull-vibration of standard metal drills.

Elias also offers interactive makeup consultations that reveal the secrets of professional makeup application, giving clients the ability to self-apply nearly any makeup style or look, from fresh-faced prom queen to milk-mustached dairy queen.
