Carole – Lead Dental Assistant
Being a dental assistant with over 30 years of experience has given me great insight into all aspects of dentistry. I have worked with many dentists during that time. The contrast in commitment to providing not just good, but great care is evident. Dr. Blake is certainly one of the most detailed dentist that I have had the privilege to work for. I refer my family and friends to this practice for that reason. Working with such a skilled dentist and committed team has been great.
Sabrina – Dental Assistant and Pre-Dental
Dr. Blake welcomed me into his team as a pre-dental student at UCSB. He took the time to train me as his dental assistant and sponsored me to get my X-ray license; he was supportive of my school schedule, giving me the flexibility that I needed.
I have now been Dr. Blake’s assistant for over two years, and consider myself fortunate to have learned from such a well-respected and excellent dentist. The fillings Dr. Blake places mimic a tooth’s natural anatomy and crown margins are seamless. He ensures that his restorations address the function and biomechanics of a natural tooth. The work speaks for itself, lasting years beyond average expectancy.
The entire staff works together to provide friendly, informative and high quality care to its patients. The well-being of not only the patients but the entire staff is attributed to Dr. Blake’s authenticity and high standards. He has provided me with a plethora of knowledge as I head into dental school. He has set an incredibly high standard for myself and other dentists!
