Dentist

Dr. Barnard

Dr. Barnard grew up in Kendallville, Indiana where he spent most of his childhood showing Reining horses and watching his Dad care for animals at his parents’ veterinarian clinic. Originally, thinking he wanted to follow in his Dad’s footsteps as a veterinarian, he earned his bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Purdue University before deciding to pursue a career in Dentistry.  Dr. Barnard then went on to earn his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from Indiana University School of Dentistry.

Following graduation, he completed an intensive 12-month Hospital General Practice Residency, aimed at treating medically compromised patients in Dayton, Ohio.  During the residency, he became certified in IV Sedation. 

Following his residency, he moved to South Carolina where he practiced IV Sedation dentistry for six years before moving back to Indiana with his wife, Angela and their two cats. Dr. Barnard is also known as an avid traveler and hiker. He loves photography, spending time outdoors and being in the water. Some of his proudest moments include completing a thru-hike of the entire Appalachian Trail, roughly 2200 miles from Georgia to Maine and winning the American Quarter Horse Youth Association Reining World Championship as a teen. 

Dr. Barnard highly values continuous growth and providing quality services. He has spent hundreds of hours attending seminars and courses all over the country and continues to invest in courses to learn the latest and best practices in dentistry and dental surgery. He is a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantology and is currently working towards his associate fellowship in the American Academy of Implantology.

Went in for a broken wisdom tooth after x-rays and a couple of Pokes on the gums doctor came in and wanted to pull all of my wisdom teeth I simply asked for the broken tooth to be pulled, I initially scheduled the appointment then canceled after thinking about how I was railroad into all this extra work and cost and finding out that they maxed out my dental insurance and sent me a bill (they did absolutely nothing on my visit) but yet I still have the broken wisdom tooth and now can’t get it pulled untill next year after insurance roll over unless i pay out-of-pocket because they max out my yearly plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to keep my teeth healthy?

Brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly are the best ways to keep your teeth healthy.

What is the difference between plaque and tartar?

Plaque is a soft, sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth. Tartar is hardened plaque, which forms when plaque is not removed and is more difficult to remove.

What is the best way to prevent cavities?

Brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and avoiding sugary drinks and snacks are the best ways to prevent cavities.

What is the best way to whiten my teeth?

Visiting your dentist for professional teeth whitening is the best way to whiten your teeth. Over-the-counter whitening products can also be used, but they are not as effective.
