"I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you (and of course, your wonderful staff) for the treatment I have received over the last few weeks when I decided to 'redo' my porcelain veneers. I thought my last veneers (which were about 14 years old) looked pretty good, even though they were beginning to crack in places. But the ones you did, make the old ones look really bad. Now I have 'movie star' teeth and cannot go anywhere without getting complimented on them... I have to carry your cards to give out!
There are dentists...and then there are the few 'talented and gifted artists'...which you definitely are in the 'talented and gifted artist' category, Dr. Barr.
This was the best money I have spent in a long time...better than a facelift!! I wish more people would make the investment in themselves because it really is just that. They should think of it as a gift to themselves...better than a new car because it last longer. It makes me sad to see someone driving a new Mercedes, BMW, or similar and they grin this crooked, corn yellow grin, or even worse, missing teeth grin...don't they have mirrors?
It is one thing if you simply cannot afford it, but if one can, I just cannot understand why they choose to go through life looking as they have never seen a dentist. I have seen people take a $50,000 cruise around the world, but have teeth missing...go figure. I know most people do not want to hear it, but it is a fact that people are still judged by their appearances, whether it is in the dating world, job hunting/or promotions, or just about every aspect of life. I want my husband to still think of me as desirable! The drastic improvement over someone's appearance when getting great veneers is shocking...!!
Even though I have used you as my regular dentist for more than 5 years, I wish I had done the new veneers even sooner. You take such time (and patience) making sure that your patient is happy and make sure he/she knows all their options.
Thanks to you and Palm Beach Smiles! Please feel free to use me as a reference anytime as I cannot sing your praises enough. I feel very fortunate to have found you as my dentist and fortunate to live in this area of Florida. I realize that this level of dental care is not available everywhere in the U. S. or certainly not in the world. I feel blessed, thank you. Not bad for a 64-year-old, right?" —Pat Mortorano
"I love my new smile! You're an awesome dentist! Nothing feels better than being able to smile with confidence. Thank you for making this possible!" —Maryann Deane, Registered Dental Hygienist in Boynton Beach (from another dental practice)
"Enclosed is my first picture in 74 years that I smiled. I want to thank you and your staff for my happiness. Sincerely," —Mrs. Nanette Bernstein

"I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you for the emergency root canal treatment you were able to perform for me, given such short notice. My pain subsided almost immediately, and I was able to happily resume my vacation mere hours after completion of the procedure. I had a genuinely pleasant experience in your office. Your employees' caring demeanor and your demonstrated expertise assisted in creating a comfortable and soothing environment for me as the patient." Sincerely, Michael Tisdelle (son of one of Dr. Barr's dental school classmates)
"After seeing a dentist, endodontist, and oral surgeon (in Georgia), I had #17 extracted by an excellent oral surgeon. She said, 'It's a shame to remove this beautiful crown that Dr. Barr placed!' High praise for your creative and artistic work!
When I get down to Florida, you can make the crown for my implant. Trust and believe, the more dentists I meet, the more I appreciate you and your staff! With gratitude," —Judy Steinbauer
"As a fellow Dentist and Patient of Dr. Barr, I am extremely satisfied with his dental work.

I would also like to commend his wonderful staff. They really help make your visit a very pleasurable one." —Dr. Mitchell Klein, Fort Lauderdale dentist

"When it came time to writing this testimonial, I had no loss for words. When you are a child, the dentist's office is a very scary place to visit. For me it would be an experience that would shape my whole adult life. When I was young and I went to my very first dentist appointment for a cleaning, it was the most horrible thing I have ever gone through. The dentist was a cruel and rough individual. She took no consideration to my feelings and scared me for a long time. It took me close to ten years to visit another dentist at the referral of a friend. This dentist turned out to be Dr. Barr. My first visit was nerve-wrenching. I thought I was going to be sick. Dr. Barr was so kind and understanding. He knew exactly what I was feeling. Sandy, the hygienist, treated me with kitten gloves, and was as sweet as pie. Jo-Ann was a warm and friendly face as you first come in. She puts you right at ease. I would, without a doubt, refer anyone to Dr. Barr. To sum it all up, my fears are totally gone. Sincerely yours" —Yahaira E. Rock
