Dr. Barlow is a different kind of dentist. With his child-oriented style and fun personality, he gets children excited about their dental care, helping them develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
After receiving his doctorate in dental surgery at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, he went on to complete a two-year residency in pediatric dentistry. The residency gave him the specialized training he needed to become a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist, a distinction earned by fewer than three percent of all dentists.
When he’s not at Little Smiles, Dr. Barlow can often be found spending time with his family. He loves all kinds of sports: skiing, fly-fishing, hiking, road cycling, and boating.
We understand you have options when it comes to which dentist you choose, which is why we strive for treatments that are free from frowns. Complete comprehension is our utmost goal, so feel free to ask as many questions as you wish about the motives for treatment, what's involved, timing and cost, etc.
We have experience treating children with special needs, so if that is a concern of yours, you've come to the right place. Parents always have a place at our procedures.
We're not one of those offices where you will be waiting around for hours. We are careful in booking our appointments so that yours will start on time or even early.
