Meet Dr. Colin Barbaro
Dr. Colin Barbaro is thrilled to be caring for the Pittsboro community following the retirement of Dr. N Rouse Wilson III. Dr. Barbaro brings with him a high level of advanced training from the Veterans Affairs Medical and Dental Center in San Antonio, Tx. Due to his training, we are now able to offer procedures under I.V. sedation, as well as the ability to treat surgically complex dental implant cases which has been Dr. Barbaro's passion since Dental School.
Dr. Barbaro was born and grew up in Fayetteville, NC. After high school he then followed two of his older brothers to Chapel Hill to pursue his Bachelor's degree in Biology at UNC (with a Minor in Tar Heel basketball). Dr. Barbaro loved Chapel Hill so much he decided to stay an additional 4 years to earn his Doctorate of Dental Surgery, where he met his future wife Lauren, who is also a Dentist. During his time in dental school, Dr. Barbaro developed a strong passion for dento-alveolar surgery with a special interest in implant surgery. He pursued this interest with research, multiple publications, and extensive surgical and restorative training during residency in San Antonio.
Following graduation from UNC- Chapel Hill, Dr. Barbaro moved with his lovely wife down to San Antonio, Tx in order to begin his Residency program at the South Texas VA hospital, with a focus in comprehensive dentistry, implant dentistry and IV sedation. The San Antonio VA Residency program, regarded as the best level of training in the country, has provided Dr. Barbaro with many skills in implant dentistry both surgically and restoratively. Although dental implants are Dr. Colin's passion, he received the highest level of training in all areas of Dentistry including Endodontics (root canal therapy), Cosmetic dentistry, TMJ therapy, Sleep Apnea treatment, and Invisalign.
When Dr. Barbaro isn't busy treating patients, he enjoys spending time with his wife, his two daughters, and their dog Willow. He also has a passion for all sports and a personal love for fishing, especially fly-fishing.
Dr. Colin Barbaro's treatment philosophy:
My passion is in treating people, not treating teeth. My goal is to come to work each day and hopefully make a positive difference in my patients' lives through helping care for their oral health. I maintain a focus first on establishing a healthy mouth and secondly on restoring diseased mouths back to health be it through a simple filling or multiple dental implants. I have undergone extensive and comprehensive training in all aspects of Dentistry in hopes to be able to comprehensively care for my patients in a comfortable environment.
