Dot Barber

Dot - Receptionist
I joined our dental team in 1988 after moving from Long Island, New York. I feel fortunate to be in the dental profession which has given me the opportunity to meet and work with some of the most wonderful people. I enjoy helping our patients with scheduling appointments, treatments and questions, insurance matters, and financial arrangements.

My husband, Ed, and I have two daughters and two grandchildren with whom we enjoy sharing Sunday dinners. We are great at cheering for grandkids at their basketball and softball games! In the warmer weather, you can bet we will be out on a lake boating and fishing. One of our favorite places to visit is Beaver Lake, AR where we have fun fishing for Stripers. Our other passion is gardening which is both relaxing and rewarding.
