Six Years And Running, Thanks To Your Votes

SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI—Once again, we’re excited and proud to announce that we’ve been voted the Best Dentist Office in the Ozarks in the Springfield News-Leader’s highly anticipated, annual readership poll.

“We’ll be celebrating with other award winners at a reception later this month, and the newspaper will announce the results officially to the public on Jan. 27,” says Dr. Tracy Davis, who is a Springfield, Missouri dentist at Barnett-Davis Dental Group.

Each year the newspaper asks readers to highlight the best people, places and activities that make the Ozarks a special place to live. Residents cast their votes via paper ballot and online survey from Dec. 3 to Dec. 11. More than 2,000 readers voted for the people and businesses they wanted to win this year.  The 2012 Best of the Ozarks winners and runners up will be featured in the print version and online edition of the newspaper.

“When we were first voted Best Dentist Office in 2007, we were so honored,” says Dr. Kelly Barnett. “Then year after year our community voted us Best Dentist Office again. We’re floored to receive the award for the sixth year in row. Thank you so much to everyone who voted.”

Our commitment has always been to our patients and promoting their optimal oral health through first-rate patient care, whether we’re putting on dental crowns, fixing cosmetic dental problems with Invisalign or educating them about proper dental care and preventive measures.

“Just like any other health care practitioner or service, people want to use the doctors who come most highly recommended,” says Dr. Marc Barnett, who is a Springfield, Missouri teeth whitening expert. “That’s why we’re so flattered to receive the community’s recommendation for so many years in a row.”

We serve patients of all ages and offer preventive care, restorative procedures and popular cosmetic dentistry services. Our office is very serious about education since oral health impacts the whole body, and we emphasize prevention as the way to avoid serious, costly dental problems and larger health issues.

“The highest praise this practice could ever receive is recognition from happy, healthy patients,” says Dr. Nick Matthews. “So we want to say thank you to each and every person who voted for our office. We’re very pleased to be listed among other businesses, people and activities known to bring happiness and quality to this area.”
