Remove Padding From MVC 4 Partial View in jQueryUI Dialog

I'm need to remove the padding on a jQuery UI dialog container.
The dialog is being loaded by calling a partial view from the controller through the click event.  Meaning, my content does not exist when the page is rendered.  Not sure if that is the issue, but any help is appreciated.

var dialogStyle_StayDelete = { modal: true, width: 725, height: 500, show: captureConfig.defaultDialogShowEffect, hide: captureConfig.defaultDialogHideEffect, draggable: false, resizable: false, closeOnEscape: false };
    $('#modalMain-StayDelete').dialog(dialogStyle_StayDelete, {}).dialog("widget").find(".ui-dialog-titlebar").hide();

I've tried the following bit of code both before and after without any change.
$(".ui-dialog-content").css("padding", 0);

If your'e using the default stylesheet, make sure to load YOUR stylesheet, with the following css rule, AFTER jquery-UI stylesheet is loaded.

.ui-dialog .ui-dialog-content {
    padding: 0;
