We Love Our Patients And Our Patients Love Us

Dr. Barker is amazing. Very friendly and educational experience. He and Kristen walked me through every step very carefully and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. This was by far the best dentist experience I have had.

Dr. Barker and his staff are great! My husband and I both have had great experiences over the past few years – Dr. Barker and his staff are all very kind and polite, his fillings and other procedures are the least painful we have experienced, and overall have been very happy with all of our appointments. Definitely recommend!

First time visit for an “emergency” fix prior to my first initial visit and I never thought I’d say that I’m actually excited to go back. Dr. Barker is extremely thorough, kind and knowledgeable. His bedside manner is top-notch. I’d been in the market for a new dentist for sometime and very pleased to find a gem! His staff are all top-notch as well! Thank you!!

I found Dr Barker via my insurance and I’m so glad I did! I hadn’t been to the dentist in 6+ years because of some bad experiences. I came in for my first consultation/cleaning with Dr Barker and it was an amazing experience. He and all of his staff were very friendly and welcoming. He never once came off as judgmental due to the fact that I hadn’t seen a dentist in so long (call it silly but this was something I was worried about). He was very thorough when explaining what I needed to get done. I went back today to get some cavities filled and some old ones fixed and again, it was an amazing experience. I never once felt a thing while he was working on my teeth! After these 2 visits I’m almost excited for my next appointment!

Dr. Barker and his office staff were excellent all around! It was my first time in the office to establish care with a new Dentist and I was very impressed; his office staff was professional, caring, friendly, you name it. Excellent service. Would highly recommend.

Dr. Barker was very patient and receptive to everything I told him about my past dental history. He made sure to explain everything that he was seeing during my initial consultation. He also provided me with the things that could be done to improve my alignment, bite, etc. but did not try to force anything on me. Staff and Hygienist were very helpful and friendly. Would recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist!

I was referred to Dr. Barker for Invisalign by a friend of mine and I am so grateful for his excellent care! I just finished my Invisalign treatment and I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Barker also took care of a few cavities I had, my teeth cleaning, as well as whitening. He also helped with an “emergency” when my old crown cracked off and was able to fit me in right away to take care of it. He genuinely cares about his patients and it is refreshing.
His staff are so friendly and professional. I can’t recommend this office enough! I have always dreaded going to the dentist and I no longer feel that way.

Literally the greatest dental experience I’ve ever had. I was referred by a friend who does extensive research on dentists so I already felt good about going, but everything Dr. Barker does is so thorough. I’ve had a cleaning/teeth photos taken, root canal endodontist recommendation, temporary and permanent root canal crown, and a filling.. I just had a filling done today and I didn’t even feel the shot. The filling was quick and completely painless. Sandra at the front desk is also the nicest lady ever! Accommodating and friendly. Also never a wait. Clean office. Highly recommend!

I had been putting off a cleaning for several years after a bad experience at a different office. Now that I’ve found this office I’ll never do that again. This place is so professional, warm, and easy to work with. The cleanings are efficient, thorough, and pain-free. I even had two cavities filled with literally zero pain (and I’m a huge baby when it comes to pain). The attention and thoughtfulness of every staff member is remarkable. Dr. Barker runs an amazing practice here and I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

Wonderful dentist. Dr. Barker spent quite a bit of time showing me pictures of my teeth and throughly explaining my dental issues and what the procedures would be for correcting the problems I am having. Dr. Barker and his staff are all knowledgeable, efficient and very polite. I highly recommend Dr. Barker.

Searched for a dentist for a long time before my wife and I found Dr. Barker. Couldn’t be happier with him and his team. Always incredibly professional and courteous.

WOW! what can I say! I’m new to Newport Beach and it has taking me a while to find a DMD that I feel is honest and really cares about my teeth. Dr Barker and staff are hands down awesome in every way! I felt cared for and love the high tech modern facility with technologies that provide insight to the health status of your teeth ! thanks so much for caring!



This is the most professional office I’ve ever seen. His staff is friendly, professional and indeed invested in the health of your teeth. Dr Barker was kind, considerate and wanted to please the patient and keep you smiling with your pearly whites. Ruth, the hygienist was amazing. Best cleaning ever. Sandra, the great woman who runs the ship is a caring person. Whom is eager to please. We will be back. Love this office. Bravo to all of you at Dr Barkers office.

Extremely friendly staff and the least painful cleaning I’ve ever had. The doc. makes sure to walk through all of your X-rays pictures and other images with you to show you what he is seeing.

Dr. Barker and his staff are awesome. The office is cozy and you get a personal vibe and are treated like family. They knew I worked night shift and always accommodated my schedule. I picked invisalign and couldn’t be more happy with my results. The fun part was foreseeing my progression along the way via computer generated projection. You wont be disappointed!
