Meet the Doctor
Dr. Caitlin Barnes grew up in the Tidewater area of Southeastern Virginia, and went on to attend both college and dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University. Following a summer externship in Barrow, Alaska, Dr. Barnes joined the staff at the Samuel Simmonds Memorial Hospital where she served as a general dentist for 2 years. During this time, Dr. Barnes traveled to outlying villages via bush plane, providing dental care to remote areas of Alaska. Also during this time, Dr. Barnes also became passionate about caring for pediatric patients in order to prevent dental problems later in life.
"What a wonderful office!!! I initially took my son here for his first dental appointment at 3 years old. They were so kind and gentle with him. He was initially nervous but the staff and Caitlyn put him at ease right away and it was smooth sailing for his first dental visit. Dr Barnes and her staff were professional, efficient and kind. My son had a dental emergency a few weeks ago and they fit him into the busy schedule seamlessly. I am confident that he is getting excellent care. Aurora Children's Dentistry is my son's dental home! Thank you Dr Barnes and your staff for your caring and top notch dentistry!!"
"My one year old daughter just had her very first dental appointment here! The staff was so professional, friendly and incredibly reassuring! They took up so much time making sure that she was comfortable and answered all of our questions thoroughly. It is safe to say that my daughter actually had fun at this appointment ha ha. She even got to pick out a little treasure from the treasure box at the very end. Crystal at the front desk, the assistants and the doctor treated my little girl like family. I highly recommend this place!"
