Dr. Katie Sugar


Dr. Katie Sugar joined Mountain and Sea Dental in May 2014.

She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School Of Dental Medicine and completed her undergraduate studies at UCLA. In dental school, she volunteered for a service trip to Costa Rica and Nicaragua to treat the under-served population. She also worked with several after-school programs that provide dental education for Philadelphia inner-city children.

After dental school, Dr. Sugar received advanced training from a year-long residency in general dentistry at the Sepulveda Veteran Affairs Hospital in North Hills, California. She stayed on to become chief resident for a second year to gain additional experience with implants and advanced prosthodontics. She was an associate at a cosmetic practice in Thousand Oaks for three years prior to coming to Santa Barbara.

To stay current with the latest in dentistry, she is a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, Santa Barbara/Ventura Dental Society, Goleta Study Club and SB Women in Dentistry Study Club.

In her free time, Dr. Sugar enjoys swimming, hiking, traveling and most importantly spending time with her friends, family, husband and their dog Lola. Dr. Sugar and her husband are expecting their first child, a baby boy, in March 2015.
