Dr. Barnett has been serving Kingfisher and the surrounding areas for 6 years now. Originally from a small town in Utah, Dr. Barnett and his wife Carma moved to Oklahoma over 12 years ago with their 2 children to attend dental school. In the time that’s followed, their family has grown to 6 children, Dr. Barnett graduated from the OU College of Dentistry, has had the privilege of serving our nation’s veterans as a resident dentist at the VA hospital, and was able to spend a year at OU Children’s Physicians Hospital as the Assistant Director of the children’s dental clinic there. He feels blessed to have learned from and served with so many great people. Kingfisher is no exception to this sentiment, and Dr. Barnett often remarks on the amazing quality of patients he gets to work with here. He loves and is comfortable treating the whole family, from grandma and grandpa down to newborns. Both he and Dr. Bowman have done everything they can to make sure what their office provides is as amazing as the patients that come here. Including 3D CBCT scans, lasers, digital impressions, Invisalign, advanced surgeries and procedures, complete dental care, and in-house lab work. He’s exceptionally grateful for Kingfisher and will continue to provide outstanding care and experiences for those who come to see him!
As you can tell from his previous job and big family, he loves kids and is anxious to get to know the many families of the area by treating both the kids and families in the communities.
Dr. Barnett speaks spanish fluently, which he learned while serving a two year mission for his church in Venezuela. While this was one of the most difficult things he has ever done, he attributes the time spent there as the primary factor in shaping him into an effective human being.
Both Dr. Barnett and Carma will tell you that the decision to begin working in Kingfisher was an answer to prayer, and he feels blessed for the opportunity to serve the people of the community. While they miss their families back in Utah, they know that the people of kingfisher county, and Oklahoma, have been and will be a family that’s makes them Oklahoma Strong.
Dr. Barnett completed his dental education at the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, after which he went on to receive additional education as a resident for 1 year at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Oklahoma City where he obtained advanced training in crown and bridge restorations, implants, periodontal surgery, oral surgery, endodontic root canal therapy, as well as denture fabrication, and orthodontics. Finally he became the Assistant Director of the Dental Clinic at OU Childrens Physicians Hospital before happily accepting the offer to become a partner at Kingfisher Dentistry & Braces. Dr. Barnett has taken extensive CE courses in pediatric dentistry, orthodontics and invisalign, and implants to be able to provide everything he can for his patients.
