Meet Dr. Barton

Dr. Barton graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering and earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery from Meharry Medical College, School of Dentistry. He is married to Lauren Barton, MD and has 3 adult children.

Dr. Barton opened a private dental practice located in Northeast Detroit and continues to provide service to the community for over 30 years.

Dr. Barton believes patient education and preventive maintenance are the keys to a healthy smile and overall dental health . Patient education involves teaching patients the proper way to maintain their dental health through proper oral hygiene, understanding the causes of dental diseases and how they can be prevented.


Dr. Barton is excited to also offer nutritional counseling at his clinic and has incorporated into the patient educational experience. Many of the health problems and dental diseases are directly related to nutritional and life style habits. Pay close attention to our blog and Community Resource pages for updates on our patient educational experience and seminars, workshops and events.
