Dr. Blake Barney received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in Columbus, Ohio in 2011. His passion for dentures and full mouth restoration lead him to pursue additional training in replacement of missing teeth - Prosthodontics. Following dental school, Dr. Barney did a graduate residency in Prosthodontics at the University of Washington in Seattle. During his residency, he received extensive training in dentures, implants, and implant-supported dentures.
Following his residency he spent 3-1/2 years doing extraction and implant surgery required for dentures and implants at his practice in Fort Collins, Colorado. He specialized in Complete Dentures, Removable Partial Dentures, “Snap On” Implant Dentures, and All-On-Four fixed dentures. His passion is for replacing teeth in a way that fits patient needs. He diligently works to present treatment options and counseling with patients, finding the best treatment plan for each individual patient.
As Dr. Barney and his wife traversed the country for school and training they joyfully welcomed five children into their family. The oldest son was born in Idaho Falls and two more little boys were born in Columbus, Ohio. They then welcomed two little girls into their family with their first daughter coming in Seattle, Washington and their little baby girl being born in Fort Collins, Colorado.
“I grew up all over Idaho from Hayden Lake in the panhandle to Hailey in the Sun Valley area. Idaho is my home, and when we had an opportunity to return we decided to sell our practice in Colorado and come home.” His wife is from Ririe, ID and she has been wanting to move home since they left in 2007. “We are so excited to be here and look forward to raising our family in the Idaho Falls area.”
Dr. Barney is a part of The American College of Prosthodontists, The American Prosthodontic Society, The Academy of Osseointegration, The American Academy of Implant Dentistry, The American Dental Association and The Idaho State Dental Association.
