Meet Your Pea Ridge Dentist
Excellence Backed by Experience
Dr. Barry Henbest has been interested and active in dentistry for as long as he can remember. Born and raised right here in Arkansas, he took a liking to dentistry in his childhood, began working for his family dentist at the age of 13, then worked as a dental lab technician throughout his college years. In 1981, he graduated with a B.S. in Natural Science from the University of Arkansas, and went on to earn his D.D.S. in 1985 from the University of Missouri Kansas City Dental School. Even at that early point in his career, The American Academy of General Dentistry awarded him recognition as the most outstanding senior; the American Academy of Periodontology awarded his outstanding achievements in periodontics (the study of the tissues and structures surrounding the teeth); he also received distinction in the area of fixed prosthetics (crown and bridgework).

Invisalign® Clear Braces
Preventive Dental Care
for the Whole Family
Our first line of defense is to take the offensive—providing your family with the latest education and techniques to prevent decay, gum disease, and bite problems. If we uncover problems that need attention, we'll determine their underlying causes, and discuss both short and long-term strategies. If you're interested in making cosmetic dentistry changes, we'll create a plan to accomplish your objectives. But one thing we won't do: we won't compromise function for looks. We put your best interests first, so that your smile will last.
Restore Function & Aesthetics
with Crowns & Bridges
If you're self-conscious about your smile due to cracked, broken, decayed or worn teeth, we can achieve healthy and natural-looking results by applying crowns or bridges to problem teeth. With today's technology, materials and advanced techniques, Dr. Henbest can actually restore your smile’s original shape and function. Designed to fit snugly and function as normal teeth, crowns and bridges protect your teeth from further damage and preserve your jaw's correct natural alignment. And with today's precise, natural-color matching systems, all porcelain crowns are often preferred over metals.
Cutting-Edge Tooth Replacements
with Dental Implants
Whether you currently wear dentures or need replacement teeth, talk to Dr. Henbest about dental implants at your next visit. Implants closely imitate the structure of natural teeth, and in a brief appointment, biocompatible implant posts are anchored in the jaw and naturally integrate with bone to create solid, imitation teeth roots. Once the fully-integrated, Dr. Henbest secures a denture, partial, bridge or individual crowns to the posts. Regular brushing and flossing, combined with professional dental care, can often make implants last a lifetime.
Repair Flaws & Boost Confidence
with Porcelain Veneers
Many people desire a brighter, cleaner, more attractive smile, but have chipped, stained, discolored, unevenly spaced, or even slightly crooked front teeth. Fortunately, porcelain veneers are available in such cases, providing a completely new-looking smile. Applying porcelain veneers is a simple three-step procedure involving bonding thin, shell-like coverings to the problem teeth, thereby creating a more attractive color, shape or size. And in many cases, veneers can provide a long-lasting, stain-resistant alternative to crowns.
Straighter Teeth in Less Time
for All Ages with Invisalign®
Invisalign® is an especially great option for busy professionals who may have considered braces in the past but ultimately decided against them. With Invisalign® clear braces, you can finally have the straight, dazzling smile you’ve always dreamed of without drawing attention to your teeth or your treatment. But even beyond just creating a more attractive smile, Invisalign® clear braces can help you improve your oral health, too. The fact that Invisalign® clear aligners are removable only helps patients create a smile that’s beautiful and healthy.

Precise, Accurate & Comfortable
We don't have every gizmo and gadget that is available in the world of dental technology. That's because we only invest in that which has been proven to significantly benefit the patient. Like our intraoral cameras that allow us to show you immediately and accurately what's really going on inside your mouth. Whether it's something to help us see things more accurately, or something to help us keep you more comfortable, these tools help us to put you first and make your smile last.
Our office is willing to work with any insurance company. This means that we'll be happy to file your insurance for you, and will accept payment from them as well. However, we do ask that patients understand up front the limitations of their own coverage, and take responsibility for their portion of the bill not covered by insurance.
For more extensive procedures, or in cases where patients prefer to pay over time, we are happy to offer third party financing through CareCredit.
