Welcome to the NEW kind of dental practice. A place where your time with us is professional, uncomplicated, and even a bit relaxing. A setting where you’re given the individual attention and care you deserve in order to create the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. If you are looking for a modern approach to dentistry with a personal touch, check out Hlavaty Dental Arts. It’s about redefining dentistry as we know it, with a beautiful, spa-like atmosphere, comfortable and relaxing environment, and cutting-edge technology.
Dr. Shawn Hlavaty has always believed the patient’s experience should come first but noticed that it tends to be an afterthought at many practices these days. That’s why he opened Hlavaty Dental Arts: to bring high-quality patient care that caters to your needs, whether you’re with us for simple preventive cleanings and X-rays or need advanced reconstructive treatments or cosmetic and aesthetic procedures. He wanted to create a completely new experience, from the moment you walk in the door, until the time your treatment is complete.
Do you clench or grind your teeth? Are you missing a tooth? Are you unhappy with your smile? Are you unable to eat the things you love? Are you not happy with those fine lines and wrinkles on your face? We've got the solution!
Here at Hlavaty Dental Arts, we have solutions for all these problems. We can build night-time appliances that help stop clenching and grinding as well as use Botox if they are causing a lot of discomfort. We can use dental implants or bridges to replace that missing tooth or teeth and get you back to eating the foods you love. We can treat those fine lines and wrinkles using Botox, dermal fillers, and Opus Plasma and give your face that smooth, youthful look.

Dr. Shawn Hlavaty is pleased to bring his passion for helping patients achieve beautiful smiles and faces to the Santa Barbara, Montecito, Goleta, and Summerland areas. Dr. Hlavaty attended New York University (NYU) for dental school and completed his implant training through NYU in conjunction with the Oral Surgery Clinics at Bellevue Hospital & NYU Medical Center.

"The thing I love about dentistry is that every patient is different, and each case poses different challenges. Dentistry allows me to make connections with people on a daily basis and I provide a service that can have a huge positive impact on a person's physical and mental well-being, as well as improving their daily quality of life."
“My whole underlying idea in creating my new office was to improve the overall patient experience. I wanted it to be inviting, comfortable, and relaxing, from the moment you walk in the door until all your treatment is complete,”
-Dr. Shawn Hlavaty
We love to keep our community smiling both in and out of the office. That’s why Hlavaty Dental Arts is proud to give back to several community organizations in Santa Barbara.
