"I love Dr. Barry! He’s always very happy to see you. The facility is  very clean and modern. It makes you feel more confident that you are  being taken care of while you are there. I never had to wait very long  in the waiting area which is also nice. I had a crown and a few cavities  that he took care of without pain!My only issue is that he isn’t covered by my current health insurance plan :("



"I had excellent treatment from Dr. McDonald today. The whole office was attentive and welcoming. I'm grateful for the positive experience."



"Best humans all the way around this office! Kind, friendly, and cheerful. I’ alway feel so welcome when I arrive and Dr Berry is the best dentist anyone can ask for!!!"



"Going to a new dentist can be anxiety producing but my experience at Dr Barry’s office was superb.  I don’t have dental insurance.  I shared what my annual costs had been at my prior dentist’s office that had closed.  They have an annual package that can be purchased which includes the usual x-rays, exam, two cleanings plus plus.    the cost was within 20.00 of prior care.  I found everyone to be very professional. Dr Barry did a thorough review of my history and current dental health status.  He didn’t try selling me extras nor give me a 2 page list of dental care needs as I’d been given by several HMO docs in past.  Thank you also to Vanessa, Karen, Debbie and Kristyn for coordinating my care.  I’ll be certain to share on our local Nextdoor where I first learned of your practice. Dr. Kathy Happy New patient"



"Dr. Barry and his entire staff are amazing. I've had both emergency and scheduled appointments and the crew are just as friendly and understanding in either case. As someone who has been hesitant to go to the dentist in the past, I can't imagine ever having been that way now that I go to Dr. Barry."
