What our Patients Say

"Dr. Tina-Lise Curtis approaches dental care with a sense of community and family. Her professional outlook fits nicely with the tone and tenor of Santa Cruz: concerned, caring, friendly and competent. Dr. Curtis takes a personal interest in individual patients -  a visit to her office feels more like a visit to a next door neighbor that you like, or a long-time family friend.


The Goals and objectives set forth in her office website are not platitudes that they hope will occur. Her entire staff takes a personal interest in learning about the individual personalities and unique challenges that each patient might face regarding dental care.


Dr. Curtis’ approach is gentle and skilled. I never recall an “Ouch Moment” while under her care. Actually, I look forward to my visits and conversations with Dr. Curtis. The Santa Cruz community is fortunate to have this particular caring approach in a local dental office."

" I found a wonderful new dentist! I went to Dr. Curtis and had the most wonderful experience. She has a friendly staff, who made me feel like a friend from the minute I walked into the office. She did a great job with my teeth cleaning and even gave me a toothbrush and some other samples! My other dentist doesn't do that. I also purchased some whitener and found her price to be very affordable. I'm looking forward to my next appointment. I highly recommend her services."

"Going to the dentist has never been my favorite thing. But walking into Dr. Curtis' cheerful, friendly office is so refreshing. Her staff is super helpful and accommodating. But the best part is Dr. Curtis. She really cares about her patients and truly wants the best for them. Dr. Curtis keeps up with the latest technologies and treatments. I have tried bleach trays for years – and always dreaded the gum pain. She offers a new teeth whitening system that is so easy, my teeth were instantly "whiter". Highly recommend it. Very reasonable. Thanks, Dr. Curtis! :) "  – Bridget P.

"Great dentist...great human being. She is open, honest and always thinking. Really impressed with her skills. I highly recommend her."

"Dr. Curtis was everything I looked for in a dentist - welcoming environment, really friendly attitude, great at explaining what she was doing, and very professional."  – Jake C.


"Tina-Lise is a great dentist! I went here for a regular checkup/cleaning and everything went as expected. I like that that Tina-Lise is very much into bicycling! She offered to allow me to bring my bike up into the office after noticing I was wearing bike shoes (I didn't mention anything about biking). She had some good advice about not to grinding my teeth while bicycling – like some hardcore pro-sprinters might do. I feel comfortable that in the hopefully-never-occurring serious crash that takes out a few of my teeth, Tina-Lise will be able to get me back on the road."  – Evan S.

"We are happy to write this review of Dr. Tina-Lise Curtis. We were trying to find a dentist for our child. Our main concern was if we could be present in the same room with our young one and we were so relieved to find that Dr. Curtis was able to accommodate this request. She and her staff bring an obvious air of professionalism and friendliness, but most importantly she is engaging not only to us, but our child, and made the overall experience comfortable and friendly. She created an opportunity to make the mystery of dental tools and their sounds less scary for our little one and altogether made it a positive, pleasant and professional experience. We are happy to call her our family dentist."  

– Mary C.


"My first visit to Dr. Tina-Lise Curtis was a welcoming experience. Her front office staff are friendly, professional and efficient. I appreciated the comfortable atmosphere and Dr Curtis's knowledge and expertise made me feel confident that I was getting great care." – Cynthia G.
