Name of Practice:
Divine Expressions Family Dentistry
DDS, Meharry Medical College
Why He Was Nominated
Dr. Barnett’s passion for providing dentistry in his home state of Alabama as well as abroad is deeply rooted in his faith. A senior pastor at Bethel Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Dr. Barnett provides pro bono care through local charities and on annual trips to Haiti — where he also helps fund a school that provides roughly 300 students with healthy meals every day.
His passion for dentistry began when he was just 8 years old: “I remember going to work with my grandmother at the health department and the dentist showing me how to count teeth.”
