Who We Are

Welcome to American Indian Health & Services, where we provide quality medical, dental, pediatric and behavioral health services to all members of our community.  Founded in 1994 as a Santa Barbara based non-profit, our community clinic has served the Central-Coast’s healthcare needs for over twenty years.  Our patient-centered medical home model organizes primary care in a manner that emphasizes care coordination and communication between the patient and provider and outside specialists.
We cultivate more engaging patient relationships and achieve better health outcomes by putting patients’ needs first.  Our doctors are leading the way in providing higher quality care at lower costs, and improving overall experience in primary healthcare.

Our Departments

Our community health center employs approximately eighty full-time staff members in its Medical, Dental, Pediatric and Behavioral Health programs in order to deliver quality healthcare through the industry-leading Patient Centered Medical Home model established by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. We are accredited by the NCQA for meeting its highest Level III standard.


Our Medical and Pediatric Departments employ four full-time, primary care physicians that are board certified in family medicine and two full-time, board certified pediatricians.


AIHS provides a wide range of dental services to our community including routine preventative care, exams, x-rays, teeth cleanings, sealants, extractions, crowns and fillings.

Our Behavioral Health Department is staffed by two full-time, licensed clinical social workers and two part-time psychologists to provide integrated mental health services for our patients.
