Meet Dr. Page Barden, A Dentist Dedicated to Empowering His Patients

As the forward-looking founder of our Cumming, GA dental practice, Page Barden, DDS, MSD, is continually stretching out to find the most innovative techniques within the world of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. Importantly, his education-first mindset aims to give patients increased power over their own dental destinies through knowledge. As such, Dr. Barden is always eager to answer any questions that may arise before, during, and after treatment.

Dr. Barden’s own educational background is impressive. He initially earned a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Denver, and then continued his studies at the University of Detroit School of Dentistry. Following that, Dr. Barden served honorably in the U.S. Air Force, before heading back to the classroom at Indiana University, where he earned an additional degree in Periodontics from the School of Dentistry.

As a long-time member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Periodontology, and the Georgia Dental Association, Dr. Barden grasps the importance of staying on top of all the emerging trends in his field so that he can help our patients benefit from the latest technologies and methodologies.

Perhaps the best news about Dr. Barden is that he is trained and certified in all aspects of sedation dentistry. Accordingly, he can provide dental care to even the most fearful of patients. He is certified in patient management with oral, intravenous (IV), and nitrous oxide sedation techniques.

In everything he does, he believes in challenging the status quo. He believes in thinking differently. He challenges the status quo of current thinking about how to treat gum disease, the most prevalent disease in the world. He does this by identifying those bacteria in the mouth. These types of bacteria cause not only gum disease but are implicated in heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes, to mention a few. Once identified, he treats the infection with a laser-like focus, reducing the bad bacteria while re-establishing the good bacteria. This reduces the severity of the effects the bad bacteria have on the body. He and the team at Inspiring Smiles provide all phases of dental treatment. On a good day, we save a smile. But on a great day, we save a life.

When he’s not providing the best possible care to the good people of Georgia, Dr. Barden enjoys taking an active part in our wider community through his involvement in various charitable organizations and professional clubs.
