Dr. Barnhart says...

Dr. Barnhart completed an oral and maxillofacial residency program at Wilford Hall U.S. Airforce Medical Center, where she gained years of experience treating patients for a wide range of oral and facial procedures. She then moved to Las Vegas where she completed her service and treated military members and veterans.

While in the Air Force, she served as an advanced trained general dentist, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and as the 99th Dental Squadron Clinical Flight Commander/Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon at Nellis Airforce Base in Nevada.
