What Our Patients Are Saying


“Excellent. I have a deathly fear of dentists and hadn’t been to one in quite awhile. Dr. Peabody was great – very patient and understanding. I had sedation dentistry with a lot of work done. I had absolutely no pain and no recall of the time while we was working on my mouth. If you have a morbid fear of going to a dentist, you no longer need to. I would highly recommend Dr. Peabody.” 



“This is a fantastic team of people who work with Dr. Peabody, who is fantastic as well. They are very reassuring. His hygienist, Carol, cleaned my teeth like I’ve never seen before in my life. I’ve been having my teeth cleaned for decades and they now look the best they ever have. I recommend this dentist with absolutely no hesitation.”



“Today I experienced a miracle. Dr. Peabody finished a three-step tooth reconstruction for me by inserting my crown. I had pretty well destroyed my original tooth, I am very grateful for Dr. Peabody’s skills and his gentleness as a dentist. All of his staff has been so helpful and kind as well. I never knew going to the dentist could be so painless and hopeful. It has truly been a miraculous.”

From Dr. Peabody

I love being a dentist, and for 33 years I have tremendously enjoyed providing dental care for you as well as the relationships we’ve formed.  I have decided to retire from the private practice of dentistry so that I can spend more time with my family.

I have interviewed several quality dentists, and I am delighted that I found an outstanding dentist that I know will fit my current patients and the community of Santa Cruz.

With sincere confidence, I am happy to introduce Dr. Martha Catalina Payne. (Dr. Cat)

Please visit her website:
to learn more about her and schedule your next appointment with her.

I will work closely with Dr. Cat in this transition so she has a thorough understanding of each patient’s dental needs.

I am confident that you will enjoy Dr. Cat as much as I have enjoyed getting to know her. The team is also quite impressed with her, and you will continue to see them at your reserved dental care visits.

Dr. Guy Peabody DDS
