One of Our Own Voted Best Cosmetic Dentist in 417 Magazine

SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI – The 417 Magazine just announced the winners of their annual readers’ choice awards and Dr. Kelly Barnett, a dentist from Barnett-Davis Dental Group, won first place in the Best Cosmetic Dentist category for 2013.

What an award winning office! In August last year, Dr. Barnett and her partners were all voted Top Dentists for the fifth year in a row in a separate 417 Magazine feature. Then, in October, Dr. Barnett was saluted by the Springfield Business Journal for being a Health Care Champion. Just last month, the practice topped the readership poll as Best Dentist Office in the Ozarks for the sixth year in a row in the Springfield News-Leader. And now, Dr. Barnett has been honored again.

“We are so proud to announce that Dr. Kelly Barnett has been voted the best cosmetic dentist in Springfield, MO in the February 2013 issue of 417 Magazine,” says Dr. Davis, a Nixa dentures provider.

The award is part of 417 Magazine’s annual rundown of their readers’ favorite people, places, foods and things about living in 417-land. (http://www.417mag.com/417-Magazine/February-2013/Best-of-417-2013/) The selection process began last September when the magazine started taking nominations from readers in dozens of categories, including cosmetic dentistry providers. Once the nominations were tallied up, the editors put together a list of finalists and readers chose their favorites.

“We knew that Kelly was a finalist, but we didn’t know if she had won,” says Dr. Marc Barnett, her husband who practices alongside her at Barnett-Davis Dental Group. “We were waiting on pins and needles to find out the results, and then when we did hear, we had to wait to announce it when the magazine published.”

Drs. Marc and Kelly Barnett, Tracy Davis and Nick Matthews provide a broad variety of cosmetic dentistry services at the dental clinic, including teeth whitening, repairing or replacing teeth, veneers and whole – mouth makeovers. We treat children and adults and offer the full spectrum of general dentistry services. Education is an important aspect of our treatment approach with patients because of oral health’s impact on the body. Preventing problems before they happen and treating issues early is the best way to avoid serious, costly dental problems and larger health issues.

“I’m so honored that my patients, colleagues and associates took the time to vote for me as the best cosmetic dentist in the Greater Springfield area,” says Dr. Kelly Barnett. “Thank you to everyone who voted. It’s been my privilege to dedicate all my energy and enthusiasm to dentistry, my patients and our community.”
