About Dr. Young
Barbara Young, DDS
One of Dr. Young’s greatest joys is the expression of her professional life. She has chosen dentistry as a career and finds that it is a good fit for her. It has given her the opportunity to share her talents on an individual basis each day. Whether she is in the office or teaching, she is proud to offer the best the field of dentistry has to offer to those around her.
Dr. Young would like to thank her team for their talents and contributions to our patients. Without them, she believes her accomplishments would not be possible.
