ABOUT OUR DENTAL PRACTICE IN HEDGESVILLE, WV
THE HISTORY OF OUR DENTAL OFFICE
According to local historians, our building was constructed in the late 1600 to early 1700’s. Originally a log cabin built with chestnut logs the Office building was used as a tavern. Apparently, travelers on their way to the healing waters of Berkeley Springs, known then as the Town of Bath, would stop here for refreshment and rest. One can still see the old log structure because Dr. Barney had kept some of the inner original walls uncovered so the beauty and history of the past won’t be forgotten. Our building is the oldest building in West Virginia that was built for commercial use and is still in commercial use. Of course, when it was built it was in the state of Virginia but due to the Civil War our area was included in the new state of West Virginia.
Don’t let the antiquity of the building fool you. One of our patients’ commented that a visit to our Hedgesville office is like stepping into the past to experience a bit of history – until you go into the treatment areas. Then it’s like walking on to the “Star Wars” set, complete with lasers, digital cameras, computers, and hi-tech tools of all kinds.
Our team is proud of our office, and we take care to ensure that he’ll preside over the corner in Hedgesville for generations to come.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Continued dental education is one of the most critical components to consider in selecting a dentist for care. Every dentist took a similar set of programs in order to become a dentist, however, from graduation the paths that are taken are very different.
Dr. Ken Barney has dedicated 100’s of hours in advanced education at LVI Global where he was elected a Fellow. Dr. Barney believes in addition to the quantity of continuing dental education and dental training to which he devotes his time is the quality of that education.
LVI as an institution of advanced dental education is considered the premier institution for dental continuing education offering state of the art lectures and hands-on format.
To better care for our patients Dr. Barney has made sure that his dental team is included in the LVI education. They too have hours of continuing education that have made them a dental team that is knowledgeable of the latest dental techniques.
Dr. Barney has also received his Fellowship in the International Academy of Comprehensive Aesthetics. This Academy is composed of highly trained dentists world-wide who want to increase their knowledge and skill in the area of restorative dentistry. This has resulted in a complete dental team that is excited about what dentistry has to offer and how it can positively impact our patients!
