Dr. Barrett of Barrett Family Dental

Dr. Richard Barrett, DMD

A native Oregonian, Dr. Richard Barrett was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon. From birth, Dr. Barrett was surrounded by dentistry. Both of his parents are dental hygienists; his mother is still in practice in a career that has spanned nearly five decades. Two of his uncles have worked in dentistry as well - one as a dental specialist and the other as a dental laboratory technician. The oldest of four siblings, Dr. Barrett was followed into dentistry by his sister Georgie, a hygienist, and his brother Stephen, a dentist. It could be said that dentistry is in his genes.

Dr. Barrett completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Oregon earning a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in 2007. While there, he also discovered his love for research and served as a laboratory technical working in the Institute of Molecular Biology. From there, he moved onto the Oregon Health and Science University School of Dentistry where he earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree in 2012. Continuing his research efforts while at OHSU, Dr. Barrett helped develop a new method for classifying lymph nodes of the head and neck and authored a paper on the subject, which was published in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

After a year of working in corporate dentistry, Dr. Barrett founded Barrett Family Dental in 2013. Having been raised by two hygienists, Dr. Barrett has shaped his dental philosophy around preventative care and whole-body health. He believes that a healthy mouth is a critical component of a healthy body and lifestyle and has tailored his practice to help his patients achieve that goal.

Understanding that health care is an ever evolving field, Dr. Barrett is committed to lifelong learning and enjoys furthering his education. To that end, he maintains a membership in multiple professional organizations to ensure he is always up-to-date on the latest techniques and information. Dr. Barrett is a member of the American Dental Association, Oregon Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, The Crown Council, and The Washington County Dental Society. He is also currently working towards completing the prestigious Fellowship of the Academy of General Dentistry.

When not in the office, Dr. Barrett loves spending time with his wife Rebecca, a local high school teacher, and his two sons, Owen and Oliver. You can often find them on weekends exploring the many wonders of the Pacific Northwest.
