Meet Dr. Walseth

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Medicare Dentistry. One of our practice’s core beliefs is that the more informed the patient, the more able the patient will be to make educated decisions about their oral health. We are committed to providing our patients the highest standards of personalized dental care. We trust that you will find our staff friendly, the atmosphere calming, and our dental services exceptional.


Dr. George R. Walseth is a 1972 graduate of the University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco and has practiced in Santa Barbara since 1976. He is a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Santa Barbara-Ventura County Dental Society.

Dr. Walseth has studied with internationally known Temporomandibular Joint, TMJ, authorities Dr. John Witzig, Dr. Terrance Spahl, Dr. William Clark, and Dr. Joesph Lytle. The combined research and clinical work of this group has led to the unique approach to TMJ therapy that Dr. Walseth utilizes. This treatment regimen is complimented by use of state of the art joint vibration analysis equipment that interprets TMJ sounds for more accurate diagnosis. The clinical success of this treatment for chronic head and neck pain patients places it in the forefront of TMJ therapy.

Dr. Walseth has been a Medicare Provider since 2012, and strives to help his Medicare patients, as well as his regular dental patients, achieve the highest level of dental health possible.


“Our commitment to serving our patients includes providing a full spectrum of dental care to preserve dental health and create beautiful smiles to last a lifetime.” —Dr. George R. Walseth
