Dental Team – Dallas, TX
Meet Our Kind and Caring Dental Professionals
There are many ways to describe our dental team, but the most notable words include close-knitted and family-oriented. Not only do they take the time to explain treatments and dental financing in great detail, but they also treat patients as if they were their own family members. We encourage you to get to know them on our team page below as well as during your next appointment with Dr. Barnett; they can’t wait to meet you!

Alex, Registered Dental Assistant
Born and raised in Oak Cliff, Alex chose to pursue his studies at the Art Institute of Dallas. In 2004, he began his career in dentistry as a sterile technician. With hard work, patience, and commitment, he was able to work his way up to a dental assistant, which is a position he loves very much! In his 18+ year career, he’s worked in several areas of dentistry, from orthodontics to cosmetics. Of course, his favorite aspect of his job is being able to help people get out of pain and feel more confident about their smiles.

Magdely, Front Desk
Having lived in Dallas all her life, Magdely enjoys helping to manage the front office while providing a pleasant experience for our patients.

She attended Dallas College for a couple of years, earning her associate degree in science, and is now certified in both CPR and AED. The best part about her job is working with her reliable and passionate team and learning from an incredible dentist!
At home, Magdely enjoys going for long walks with her partner and husky. She also loves spending time with her family and friends, being on the lake in her family’s boat, having cookouts, exercising, and trying new foods.
