“Superlatives must be used when describing Dr. Barra and his staff. Dr. Barra’s education and professional training at Syracuse University and Georgetown University speak for themselves. Dr. Barra has not only the essential education and professional training but also the professional and personal attributes to implement the best orthodontic treatment for patients of all ages.”

“5 years ago you were my son Matthew’s orthodontist. Matthew was head-butted playing soccer and his front teeth were nearly knocked out. You and your oral surgeon came in after hours and put Matt’s braces back on. We weren’t sure if the teeth were going to be saved. I will say that to this day he has the most amazing smile and all teeth have made it, five years later.”

“At age 40, I did NOT want to wear braces again. But I’m SO glad I finally went to Dr. Barra for a consultation. A year later, I am smiling wider for photos and very happy with my pearly whites. Dr. Barra and his staff were understanding and very kind in spite of my whining and reluctance. I can honestly say it was a great experience overall.”
