Columbus, IN Dentist
Scott Barrix, DDS
Hello my neighbors, friends, and patients. I have been blessed to practice dentistry here, in Columbus, for almost 30 years now. In our profession, we offer a unique combination of technology, and experience. Our office has an ongoing commitment to the latest digital technology, and clinical techniques.
We offer daily to our patients the best the 21st century has available in digital technology. From digital x-rays (less radiation), to digital restorations completed in one appointment with our Cerec system, we are now able to perform procedures that 15 to 20 years ago, our profession could only dream about. We are now saving and restoring more teeth than ever before. This is truly an exciting time in our profession!
I am very proud of my staff's caring touch, and clinical expertise with our patients.
Personally, I have been very blessed with two beautiful children, Kelsey and Cameron. Columbus is a wonderful community to raise a family. Our hometown offers an awesome quality of life. I work, eat, shop, and play right here alongside you. See you around town!
