4/18/16 Kyle – Dr. Barkley and his staff were wonderful in making me feel at ease in giving me all the options available for a procedure on one of my teeth.  They did so without pushing me towards one over the other while giving me lots of information on each.  They are supportive and caring for their clients I feel comfortable going to each appointment (this coming from someone who used to dread going to the dentist).  I would recommend to anyone searching for a dentist.

4/14/16 Donna W – Staff seemed very concerned and caring.  Everything was explained very well.

3/28/16 David C – HCD provides you with the best dental care available.  They are like going to see family.  Friendly and courteous and wanting the best for you and your teeth!  Being professional and friendly is a great combination!

3/25/16 Boonie – The care and attention to detail that HCD continuously affords is beyond reproach.  I am a businessman that has lived in several areas of the country and have never received the same care anywhere else.  My technician Annie is incredibly thorough.  She took the time to explain all of her procedures, and made sure that I was comfortable through the process.  I am moving on, but wish I could pocket HCD and take them with me!!!

3/19/16 Karrah S – As an individual who can always say, I hate going to the dentist – BUT, I must say that I never dread going to High Country Dentistry.  The entire staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.  They also work with each individual and will suggest various payment plans to get you the results needed! I HIGHLY recommend them!!!!!

3/3/16 Aaron – Always great communication re: appointments.  Good service and attention.  Staff are knowledgeable, kind, efficient, and put me at ease every time I’m there.

3/3/16 Anonymous – Care has been excellent- my teeth are doing the best in years.  They take into account cost and have come up with a solution to one problem that has worked well for several years that was less intrusive and more cost effective than my previous dentist.  Highly recommended and they take Appalachian State insurance.

2/8/16 Brenda H B – Everyone is friendly, courteous and professional.  Service is usually prompt with little or no waiting.  I still have problems with my lower denture but still need to give it some time.  I’m still glad about my decision to get dentures, just knowing those four hour procedures are a thing of the past is great!

2/7/16 Gary C – High Country Dentistry has provided me with exceptional dental care for the last 2 1/2 years.  Everyone in the office are so professional and provide exceptional service.  Dr. Barkley, and his staff make my visits a very pleasant experience every time.  Annie is the best dental hygienist I have ever encountered in all my years of having my semi-annual cleanings.  Kudos to Dr. Barkley and the High Country Dentistry staff.

1/20/16 Bob – Hardly felt anything.  Was so relaxed almost fell asleep, filling was done quickly and without any discomfort either during or after.  Great team

1/14/16 Tressa S. – Everyone was very friendly and informative.  Did not feel pressured to have something they recommended done right this minute or to have other things done that I didn’t necessarily need.

1/6/16 Jonathan S. H – This is a great dental practice and they really care about your teeth and give you all of your options before there is anything of major problem that needs to be performed.  The dental staff is great.

1/1/16 Anonymous – All staff have always been friendly and pleasant.  I’ve needed a lot of dental work over the last year and they worked with me to manage payment and scheduling.  I’ve had a very positive experience there!

11/15/15 Celeste J – I am impressed with the level of care that I receive. Your staff is professional, friendly, and kind.  I would highly recommend your practice to anyone who is looking for dental care.

9/29/15 tdh5171 – My hygienist was knowledgeable and did a fantastic job! The staff at HCD is exceptional. The fear factor is all but gone! Give em’ all a fat raise Doc! Keep up the great work. Many of the service related businesses in Boone I feel are offering services with the attitude of having a captive marketplace due to the High Country’s location….not HCD! Keep up the great work folks, and I’ll keep coming back.

8/26/15 Anonymous – Even though High Country Dentistry is no longer in my insurance plan, I am staying with them. The care has been excellent. They also are very sensitive to my insurance and out of pocket costs. I have known in advance what charges will be my responsibility, which is extremely rare these days. They get 5 stars from me.

8/13/15 SZ – I think Dr Barkley is a great dentist. I have some complex dental issues, and I trust him with all the decisions he has made concerning my dental health. Anie has been great helping me maintain good oral hygiene and proper care of my teeth in general.

7/31/15 Carrie H. – I was very pleased with how they explained what they were doing and how to correct any problems.  They didn’t try to force unnecessary procedures.

7/24/15 Sharon M. – Dr. Barkley is a very caring dentist along with his entire staff.  Every procedure he did on my teeth he would make sure it would be done to perfection before I left the office.  I could not ask for a better dentist.  I am very picky when it comes to a dentist.  His staff is wonderful and his lady at the front that handles you insurance is great.  I never have to worry about that part of my visit.  I always know she will take care of me.  I have told all my friends and relatives that you are the best.  Thank you for all you do.

7/23/15 Ruth P. – Staff was great!!!  Annie, the hygienist who cleaned my teeth, was friendly and very professional!  Had the best exam and cleaning I’ve had in a very long time!!  Dr. very good too!  It was a pleasure dealing with everyone!!

7/10/15 Carolina W. – Very patient and good listening skills.  Non-judgmental.  Made me feel welcome and comfortable.

7/3/15 Susan S. – I had an excellent visit!  Probably the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had.  She was personable, knowledgeable, thorough and professional.  From the front desk to the doctor everyone was wonderful.  I also really enjoy the television option while hammy teeth cleaned.

5/31/15 Alexander K. – Best dentist hygienist ever, she doesn’t make me feel like a complete loser for not taking better care of my teeth.

5/30/15 Phyllis C. – This was the best visit I have ever had to a dentist. There was no pain and lots of patience during the cleaning process. I have had good dentists and hygienists but this was overall the best. Thank you.

4/3/15 Jennifer S. – I will be the first to tell someone that I hate going to the dentist and have spent most of my adult life avoiding it.

I am very thankful to have found this office!

1/16/15 Briana K. – right when i got into my car after my appointment i texted two of my friends and recommended they go to HCD

1/10/15 Anonymous – Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Dr. Barkley made a very stressful situation (going to the dentist) a good experience. He addressed the problem I came for and did not try to push me to have other treatments. My present is in another town and I am not considering switching to Dr. Barkley.

11/11/14 Danielle C. – I was tremendously nervous, but the second I walked in Anne Kay made me feel completely at ease! The tv’s on the ceiling were a supremely nice touch as well 🙂
