Discover a better dental experience. Dental care designed around YOU!
Many arriving for their first visit at Star Ranch Dental in Plano might assume the practice name is simply a clever homage paid to the great state of Texas. These same patients leave knowing there is much more to it – they are smiling, and they come back.
According to Dr. Peter Barnett, who adds 43 years of experience and knowledge into his patients’ care, “Everything we do addresses their comfort, peace of mind, and convenience. We want the experience to be the best it can be. The star demonstrates our commitment to making the patient the center of the universe at our practice.”
Now more than ever, patients are looking for a dental practice that delivers more than a healthy, confident smile. They want a friend, advocate, and partner in their overall health. A successful care experience today is increasingly focused on convenience, for them and their family. This is the reason Star Ranch Dental continues to expand its team and facility to meet their patients’ needs under one roof, making the complexity and discomfort of being referred out a thing of the past.
Not only does Star Ranch Dental check all of those boxes, but they’ve also set the bar very high. Their suite of services (they call it 360 patient care) addresses the entire patient. Drs. Barnett, Shewski, and Barrett offer everything from routine checkups and cleanings to preventive care and hygiene, dental implants, fillings, orthodontics, root canals, IV sedation, wisdom teeth extraction, and periodontal therapy. Dr. Barnett also offers specialized focus in airway management (sleep apnea), jaw and facial pain, headaches, and health and wellness.
“Rather than focus on a few procedures, we focus on total well-being. Our patients appreciate this,” Dr. Barnett said.
Yet another sign of how invested they are in your health, advanced 3D imaging guides the way to smart diagnosis and recommendations for every patient. State-of-the-art technology shows their pride in being ahead of the times for the benefit of their patients. They are also as meticulous with their clinical accuracy as they are with your time, remaining on time for every appointment.
The dreaded, impersonal standard across healthcare has been addressed in pursuit of a true five-star level of service.
“Yes, we can keep our patients’ business by doing things like this. More importantly, we keep their trust. We’ve always considered it to be a privilege to keep treating our patients,” Dr. Barnett said.
Of the utmost importance – especially in today’s ever-changing environment from COVID-19, patients want to feel safe. Dr. Barnett took their safeguards way above adequate standards, including the addition of a REME HALO air purification system and fogging the air in between patients to ensure everything is as clean as possible. Word on their attention to detail is spreading as they continue to win community recognition as a Living Magazine Readers’ Choice Best Of dentist year after year.
“We have a patient who lives 80 miles southeast of here who has been coming for a long time. Her comment to us was that she keeps coming back because she feels comfortable. We took early action to go above and beyond,” Dr. Barnett said. “I have an obligation to everybody who works here and the thousands of patients who trust us with their health. They are placing their trust in us, and we don’t take that lightly.”
