Meet Dr. Richard Barnes

Richard W. Barnes, DDS

My job and personal life are interconnected in that my patients are people I choose to be around. I have a great life!

In order to become a dentist, I attended the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, graduating in 1990. I have been practicing dentistry for more than 20 years, and am currently the forensic dentist for Tulare County. I enjoy using my skills for different roles and always strive to stay current with new dental methods and technologies.

I love working with people to find a solution for dental issues so that they have healthy teeth and smiles. I feel like most of my patients are personal friends, and I always enjoy interacting with them! I love living in our community and helping those in it.

We have a great staff here, and they like to have a good time by joking around with our patients and making them feel comfortable. I have the best, most dedicated professionals that understand patient care!

I grew up in Southern California, and have lived in Visalia for  more than 20 years. My son is Alex and my daughter is Makenna. We also have two dogs and three cats at home! When I’m not at work, I enjoy golfing, snow skiing, wake boarding, and traveling. I am also active in our community and am a supporter of CASA.
