What Patients Are Saying

“Very happy to have Dr. Barco as my dentist. His new location is beautiful and has adequate off-street parking. Staff is warm and welcoming.. Redecoration of this new office continues and will be completed very soon. Do not miss an opportunity to acquire this young and knowledgeable dental professional and staff.”

Gary Gans., Ellettsville, IN

“Everyone is friendly here. Doctor Barco is courteous and cares about his patients. I like that he gives his patients options and allows for educated discussion without pressure. My dental hygienist was gentle and caring. I left with a bag of Swag, soft toothbrush, floss & toothpaste. I'm looking forward to seeing their bigger and better space upstairs when I return in 6 months.”

Jan Lamm., Bloomington, IN

Featured Services

Preventive Dentistry
for Kids, Adults & Grandparents

Rather than providing restorative services to repair damaged smiles, we would prefer to prevent oral health conditions from ever reaching advanced stages. That all starts with six-month checkups at our Bloomington dental practice. During these appointments, we’ll screen for common oral health conditions and work with you to develop a plan for ongoing hygiene in our office and at home with the goal of keeping your natural smile healthy for life.

Dental Crowns & Bridges
Repair & Rejuvenate Your Smile

Extensive tooth decay or damage can be repaired using dental crowns and fixed bridges. These traditional dentistry solutions restore full form and function to damaged smiles. Crowns are crafted to fit completely over the top of a damaged tooth, protecting it from further trauma and replacing any lost structure. Fixed bridges are an ideal solution to replacing one or more consecutive missing teeth. These tooth replacement solutions look and feel completely natural.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Fix Imperfections Quickly

At Barco Family Dentistry, we want our patients to love their smiles and share them confidently. If there is any aspect of your smile you are unhappy with, call our friendly team to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation today. We’ll walk you through our wide array of cosmetic dental services and help you find the treatments you need to achieve the picture-perfect smile of your dreams. We provide a variety of treatments including teeth whitening and veneers.

Clear Braces
Discrete & Comfortable

A straighter smile doesn’t have to mean months or years with a mouth full of metal brackets and wires. At Barco Family Dentistry, we offer a discrete solution – Invisalign® clear braces. This alignment tray orthodontic system allows us to shift your smile into its ideal position over the course of about twelve months of comfortable orthodontic care. Best of all, the nearly invisible alignment trays mean only you and Dr. Barco will ever know you’re straitening your smile.

Gum Disease
Deep Periodontal Cleanings

If you notice your gums bleeding while you brush and floss, have inflamed or irritated soft tissue, or notice your teeth look longer, you may be suffering from gum disease. This oral health issue affects more than 50% of US adults. We offer periodontal therapies to renew oral health for those patients who suffer from gum disease. Let us know right away if you experience any of the common warning signs of periodontal disease.
