Mesa Dental began in 1978 with a vision. Dr. Walter Dukes wanted to start a dentistry practice to meet the needs of clientele in the Santa Barbara area. It would have a boutique feel, oceanfront vistas, and unmatched service. It has taken twenty years to make that vision a reality at Lighthouse Court, the mixed-use building right on the water that would be the site of Dr. Dukes’ offices. Add to the perfect location: massage chairs, neck pillows, heated blankets, silent drills, and pina colada flavored novocaine. It feels more like a spa than the dentist’s office!
