We Have a New Name

Springfield, MO – Barnett-Davis Dental Group now has a new name! We’d like to introduce Excel Dental – providing the same level of exceptional care by the same outstanding Ozark dentists. So if nothing else has changed, why change the name? Simple, we wanted our name to better reflect our care philosophy – that optimum oral health begins with dental care excellence.

“For many years, our practice has worked very hard to set ourselves apart as the area’s best family dentistry practice,” says Dr. Tracy Davis. “Not only does our expertise reflect that, but our compassion and commitment to cutting edge technology does, as well.”

You will be hard pressed to find more dedicated or highly trained dentists than the ones at Excel Dental. And even better, they are committed to being a part of our local community. Drs. Marc and Kelly Barnett have been practicing in the Ozarks area for 30 years and Dr. Davis has lived and practiced in the area since 2004. Dr. Nick Matthews also grew up in the area. All four of our dentists graduated with honors from the University of Missouri at Kansas City Dental School and are committed to continuing education.

“We know that continuing our educations is important to staying on the cutting edge of the dentistry field and will only benefit our patients,” says Dr. Matthews. “We are all graduates of the Hoya College of Laser Dentistry, members of the International Academy of Mini Implants and we are certified in both Invisalign and the 6 Month Smile System. That means our patients know we are dedicated to always ensuring they have access to the best and latest technology.”

If you are looking for a new dental home, you’ll love the compassionate care you receive at Excel Dental, along with their extensive list of services. Because the dental field is constantly changing and growing, so is our list of services. And because we’ve been established in the field for so long, should you need specialized services we don’t provide, we have a network of trusted specialists available to help.

“In addition, we offer complimentary in-house consultations for cosmetic, implant and tooth replacement services, orthodontics and dentures,” says Dr. Kelly Barnett. “We even offer complimentary second opinions, so if you have questions about services another dentist recommended, we are happy to help you. New patients and emergencies are also always welcome.”

There are so many things that set us apart from other dental groups. We have consistently been ranked the Best in the Ozarks in 417 Magazine, Springfield News-Leader and Springfield Business Journal, and we’ve even received national recognition for our dental office design and technology.

“Even more important than that, however, we offer affordable and comprehensive care for each patient,” says Dr. Marc Barnett. “”We allow for flexible payment arrangements that fit into your budget and provide assistance in helping you understand your insurance coverage. Every treatment plan is individualized to meet the needs of each patient and his or her budget.”

We stress communication with our patients that results in education and consistent care, with our dentists overseeing every procedure. We offer a comfortable and stress-free environment with soothing sounds and aromatherapy candles, and the latest in relaxation medication.

We also pride ourselves on being a family friendly office, with a welcoming play and education area for our younger patients. We are pleased to offer “happy visits” to help children become acquainted with our dental office. And our impeccable safety standards mean you will only receive the greatest and safest care possible. We use a hospital-grade sterilization system and closed water system to prevent cross contamination.

As you can see, Barnett-Davis Dental Group may have changed our name, but the same exceptional dentists and high level care still await you. And if you haven’t yet visited our office, what better time than now? We are always accepting new patients and would love to help you start your new year off right.
