Howdy, from this lifelong Texan newly landed in majestic Santa Barbara! I am Dr. Andrew Farkas and proud to now serve this community as a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology. As a board-certified dental implant specialist, I offer extensive experience in comprehensive and surgical dental care. My work involves replacing missing teeth with dental implants to bring back confidence and function including: dental implant placement for a single tooth, multiple teeth, full arch, All-on-4®, sinus/gum/bone grafting, and sinus augmentation. I am certified in IV and oral sedation administration along with ACLS - Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification.
Education is an important part of my life, having graduating from the University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston, Texas, receiving certificate for Advanced Education in General Dentistry and completing an American Academy of Implant Dentistry continuum at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in California. In addition to private practice, I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and teach other dentists’ how to perform surgical procedures; including dental implant placement on patients in need at low or no cost with Implant Pathway in Tempe, Arizona and Colorado Surgical Institute in Greeley, Colorado.
The team of Kendall | Rhode and Associates collaborate with me to offer the highest level of care using the most advanced technology in dentistry today, while maintaining our impeccable reputation of excellence. As experienced problem solvers with immediate solutions, patients are now able to receive advanced surgical care in the place they know and feel comfortable.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Karen Lantz, an award-winning architect and light of my life. When not working, we enjoy worldwide travel, great food, and wine with a dash of architectural site seeing for good measure. As life-long athletes, Karen and I both enjoy cycling, swimming, and golf. We are excited to embrace all outdoor activities that Santa Barbara has to offer!
