Dr. John Barrett opened Dentistry Northwest in Port Hadlock in January 1979.  His interest is focused on efficient, affordable dentistry in a comfortable environment for the patient. Dr. Barrett and his wife, Anne Burns, have 5 children and 6 grand children.  All of them live close enough for frequent fun visits.  Dr. Barrett’s hobbies include flying, alpine skiing, fly fishing, and mountain biking, to name a few.  He says  “I’m very lucky to have a gifted staff who are so proficient that if I do what they say we have predictably excellent dental outcomes.”  

            Brent - hygienist

Brent brings over 20 years of experience in dental hygiene to our practice and still loves every day of it.  His wife, Amy is also a hygienist and both of them work together as realtors with Coldwell Banker in Port Angeles.  Brent and Amy have four kids, all still living in Port Angeles.  Brent enjoys reading, cycling and gardening.


 
        Juliene - dental assistant

Hi my name is Juliene, I have been a dental assistant since1984 and have
been working with Dr Barrett since 2007. I enjoy working with all of the
wonderful staff here at Dentistry Northwest. In my spare time I enjoy
spending time with my two children and my family.

         Carol - dental assistant

Hi my name is Carol, I am a dental assistant at Dentistry Northwest. I have
been working for Dr Barrett since the beginning of time, or at least since
1983. I am married and have 3 children. I enjoy warm tropical vacations and
watching my kids sporting events. Oh, and of course there's Facebook which
does occupy some of my spare time.

     Christine - lab tech./sterilization


Hi my name is Christine and I have lived in the area with my husband since 1983. My idea of perfect time off is to travel with my husband in our RV andexploring new areas, park near the water, put my feet up with a fire burning and a stack of good books to read. I started at Dentistry Northwest in 1999 and I am the busy behind the scenes lady who does all the cleaning, sterilizing and lab work.

        Rebecca - front office

Hi my name is Rebecca and most likely I will be the first person to greet
you when you walk thru our front door or call our office. I am here to help
you with all your insurance and financial questions and to assist you in
scheduling your appointments. I was born and raised in Port Townsend. I
graduated from PTHS and have worked in a dental office since 1993. I started
working for Dr Barrett in 2005. When I'm not at work I am busing with my two
daughters. I love spending my free time outside in the yard and gardens or
at the beach.

"Reason for 1 star is because although he is a good technician, he is very expensive. For caps, he does not guarantee his work. Definitely not affordable by most people unless they have insurance or are very well off financially. Hard to believe we all make such a huge deal about health care, yet no one complains about how incredibly wealthy most dentists get and the prices they charge."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Barrett for several years. I love the state-of-the-art equipment in his office and the fact that, if one needs a crown, it is done on the same day - no need to return for several visits. Over the weekend while I was flossing, one of my older crowns popped out. When I went to see Dr. Barrett, he was able to fix it and glue it back on - he guarantees his work. I am very pleased not only with the attention he gave me, but also to his incredible attention to details. His office staff is very friendly, courteous, and helpful. I definitely recommend Dr. Barrett."

"First, my apologies for the hard bite causing so much extra work today. Thanks for sticking with me. Second, a suggestion. I noticed that many times when anyone referred to someone else in the practice they used "he" or "she", as in "He'll be right back in to do ..." or "She'll clean you up and get you out of here". You all obviously make an effort to address patients on a first name basis; I think it would close the circle to refer to each other by name as well - a warmer more inclusive feel for those of us in the chair. Just a thought. Thanks again, Erik"

"Dr. Barrett is sensitive, patient, and communicative. I can be a difficult patient who is quite uncomfortable with needles. His injection technique is painless and during my crown prep today, he was willing to pause during moments of discomfort or anxiety (mine, not his!) while I pulled myself together. Additionally, he has been my dentist since I was very young and my teeth are in great shape (32 years later). I travel from Seattle now for the best dental work in Western Washington."

"Everything about my appointment went perfectly! Carol got me in ASAP. And reminded me about my pre-antibiotic dose. Rebecca is sweet and cheerful and efficient as always. Doctor Barrett was as always meticulous in his care. My crown feels fine and I haven't had any discomfort. The office always looks as pleasant as any dental office could with a warm and cheerful reception room. The warmth and care I received reminded me of visiting long time friends. Once does not often receive that in todays world. Thank you!"

"First, my apologies for the hard bite causing so much extra work today. Thanks for sticking with me. Second, a suggestion. I noticed that many times when anyone referred to someone else in the practice they used "he" or "she", as in "He'll be right back in to do ..." or "She'll clean you up and get you out of here". You all obviously make an effort to address patients on a first name basis; I think it would close the circle to refer to each other by name as well - a warmer more inclusive feel for those of us in the chair. Just a thought. Thanks again, Erik"

"Dr. Barrett is sensitive, patient, and communicative. I can be a difficult patient who is quite uncomfortable with needles. His injection technique is painless and during my crown prep today, he was willing to pause during moments of discomfort or anxiety (mine, not his!) while I pulled myself together. Additionally, he has been my dentist since I was very young and my teeth are in great shape (32 years later). I travel from Seattle now for the best dental work in Western Washington."

"Dr. Barrett is a sensitive doctor who responds immediately to his patient's distress or discomfort. Too, I found a specific technique - the massaging of gums during Novocaine injection to be very effective - more so than the awful tasting topical that dentists usually administer beforehand. Dr. Barrett was consistently attentive to my needs in general and made no chiding remarks about my needing to swallow a lot (due to a medical condition) or my low tolerance for pain. Overall, he is one of the best dentists I have ever encountered."
