I had a lot of issues that needed to be addressed. They were very professional and helpful with my options. Gave me recommendations and everything.

Been to several dentist, Huntline Dental are easily above a 5 Star Rating.

5 Star Rating on Google – The facilities are top-notch and all of the staff are 100% professional. I haven’t had to wait long to get in to see the dentist. Prices are more than fair especially considering the quality of work. I got a dental implant $2,200 cheaper than anywhere I could find in JC. Well worth the short drive. I am certainly very satisfied.

Also, recognition to Mark, he made me smile a lot! Very caring. Thank you Huntline, I highly recommend you!!

No Complaints. The service was excellent.

Ray W. Jefferson City Dentist

Of course I can’t say having a tooth extracted was a pleasurable experience but it was far from being what I expected. Thanks to Sam and his staff it was painless and I was informed what to expect and how it should feel and if I was uncomfortable to let them know. I am confident in their ability and will fear Sam no more. Thanks Sam and girls!

D. Runge

5***** From Facebook – “I would recommend Huntline Dental to everyone. I traveled from the Lake of the Ozarks to go to them. I had upper implants done and they explained everything every step of the way. They made me feel very comfortable. Let’s face it, no one wants to go to the dentist!! But I didn’t mind at all. His staff and himself go out of their way to tell you what their doing and what to expect. I am very happy with them and having them do my lower teeth also now!! If you’re looking for any dental work, this is the place to go!!”

“Wonderful custom service. The whole team is really great at what they do.”

A. Fitzsimmons
After my dentist retired, I had to find a new one. I started asking friends for references. And Dr. Sam was the most recommended. I have very sensitive teeth and gums. Having my teeth cleaned is usually not a pleasant experience. But the staff made me feel very at ease and I hardly felt anything. I can’t sing their praises enough!
Colette S. T.
Stains on my teeth are were removed that I was told could not be by my other hygienist. I love my smile now !
Loleita W.
Absolutely no stress in seeing anyone at Huntline Dental. Every question asked is given full attention and detail with an easy explanation. Dr. Sam and his staff never pressure for additional or unnecessary procedures. They give their full attention to what your needs are and the best way to proceed. Everyone at Huntline is professional and courteous. I have recommended family members and they are very satisfied with the care received. There is no better place to be for your dental care. I recommend to anyone reading this post to give them a try, I know you will not be disappointed in the care and service.
Lynn W.
Very professional, friendly, and down to earth! I hate going to the dentist but they make it a great experience every time. The front desk, all dental assistants, and Dr. Sam are always wearing a smile making you feel right at home! 10 Stars for Huntline Dental Group!!! Oh! And they also work seamlessly with your insurance making it very convenient and affordable!!
Matthew S.

Suzanne M.
I had my first experience at Huntline Dental yesterday and, wow, what a great first impression! The staff greeted me with a smile and everyone was personable, informative, and kind. Staff was always asking and making sure I was comfortable while receiving care. I was able to try the new iSmile technique for teeth whitening. It was quick, easy, and I can even take the kit home to continue the whitening treatments per box advisement. Dr. Sam and his staff are a great group of professionals. I would highly recommend this practice!
Geena H.

“Friendly, high tech and very efficient. Reasonable charges for excellent work. All employees know their jobs and can answer your questions. Great place!”

Ronald D.

Was there to help me when I was in great pain when no others would. Absolutely best experience everyone was very friendly. Even though they were packed and I was 4 hours early they got me in early and out of pain. With a difficult extraction I healed up guickly and hardly no pain at all. My new favorite dentist. I can’t thank you all enough for everything did for me on such short notice.I wish I could remember everyone’s name that had a part in this but a HUGE THANK YOU to all.

Kari H.

I had a tooth chip ( front top tooth) on Saturday, since I didn’t have pain, I waited until Sunday to send an email with a pic of my tooth to Dr. Sam’s office. I get a call from Sheila on Monday asking if I could come in that day at 3? Of course I said, YES! I walked out of the office with my front tooth looking better than it did before it broke.. Dr Sam has amazing skills, techniques, state of the art dentistry equipment and happy, energetic and knowledgeable assistants that make your dental visit a pleasant experience.

Connie B.

Wonderful dentist. I have been an awful patient for years due to my overly sensitive teeth. They made sure I was comfortable the entire appointment and felt almost nothing. Best dental experience ever!!!

Dana S

Sam and the staff are amazing. They greet you with a smile and know your name when you walk in the door. They go the extra mile to work with your insurance to make sure you are getting the max benefit. They work efficiently to get you in and out, but they take time needed to ensure you receive the highest quality of care and are as comfortable as possible. They book appointments appropriately as I have never seen them backed up, and never have i seen more than 1 or 2 in the waiting room at a time. I feel confident in the dental work I received. I was a part of the decision making process when it came to my dental work. I was always made aware of the cost, time, and what to expect before each visit. I am very happy overall with my current dentist and the rest of the huntline dental staff.

Wendy KW.

The office and facilities are always clean and comfortable. Huntline Dentistry has a great team of staff. They are all top of the line professionals, with superb workmanship, artistry and state-of-the art equipment.

Kathryn S.

This is the best dental office – staff is very attentive, appreciative and concerned.

Irene F.
Although my plan for dental care is not yet complete. I must say that the services I have received so far have been awesome. let’s just say that I was a bit nervous about getting new dentures, and was afraid of having that less-than-desirable smile that we have all seen with cheaper dentures. I tried in my wax mold dentures today and they fit better than my previous dentures had ever fit. and the look was exactly what I was hoping for. I get my permanent set in a week and have all the confidence in the world they will be absolutely great. Thank you to the entire Huntline Dental crew.
Brian F.

Everyone at Huntline is knowledgeable, efficient, and compassionate towards their patients. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Carol S.

Professional, friendly, informative. I always arrive and leave with a SMILE on my face. Thank you Dr Sam and staff!

Sheri L.

I am grateful that the Huntline team worked me into the schedule. I am soon having cancer surgery and was advised to get my dental problems taken care of before starting treatments. Not only did they work me in, but they were very caring, friendly and professional. There was laughter in the office, not dread and pain. My procedures were performed quickly and without any pain. I was so numbed up yesterday that I couldn’t smile. Today I can without ever taking any pain medication! Thank you! Thank you!

Delighted!

Joanie Bock

“This review is in response to my second visit to Huntline Dental Group,which was on January 5, 2015. Prior to that date, I had had a consultation to identify my particular problems, and to offer a plan of action to solve them. My opinion was very positive at that consultation, and it has not changed from that initial appointment, but rather it has been enhanced by the January 5 visit, when actual work on my plan began. I again found the office staff to be very helpful, and willing to work with me in every way possible. The technicians were again superb, showing care and compassion when needed, and exhibiting confidence to me as they executed their professional duties. Pain and apprehension were non-existent, which created a peaceful environment. For once in my life, I look forward to coming to Huntline on the 26th for another scheduled visit to work toward the completion my care plan”

Jim DeChant

“Everyone was Very efficient and pleasant. Made me feel very comfortable.”

Debbie Crede

“I LOVE coming to Huntline Dental. Each staff person has always been kind and respectful, and both Drs. have been nothing less than professional and kind. I love the explanations they give, they provide the information and let me make the decision as to what I want to do. They have never tried to push anything onto me. Just yesterday I had a root canal, my first. I’ve always heard horror stories from people who have had one. I was expecting the worst. Mine was painless, thorough, and I was actually relaxed so much during the procedure that I fell asleep in the process! I’ve been to several dentists through the years, and this one I will stay with for the rest of my days!”

Joan Kauffman

“Another excellent visit. Dr Barnhart, along with his staff provided excellent treatment and care. Completely satisfied. Better yet, no significant discomfort during the procedure(s) which was a fairly long visit. I’d recommend Huntline Dental Group to anyone.”

Chad Kocina

“Best dentist and staff/team ever! Ive had 4 others but Huntline makes me very comfortable with their expertise and kindness which is difficult for anyone since Im a nervous wreck even with a cleaning. Highly recommend you switch and come here.”

Timothy Davis

“I can actually say, that I love to visit “The Huntline Dental Group” You are greeted with Smiles, they get you right in, even when you are a half hour early. All employees are young and very up to date with the newest techniques and equipment. I had a deep cleaning after a shot, I didn’t even feel. Then a laser procedure, which was quick, and I did not feel a thing!! All crowns, etc. are done in-house, and finished in one trip. They don’t have you coming back for multiple sessions, they do all procedures at the time of your visit, which is great, since I live 45 minutes away. There prices are the lowest in the whole Jefferson City area. I have a mouth full of beautiful, white teeth, thanks to Sam Barnhardt and his techs. Love them all. They have been my Dental Group for 4 years, and have done a lot of work on me.”

Susan Bartley

“My looking forward to a dentist appointment is by far the worst fear i have but after my initial exam and follow up for 2 crowns .. i have to say I am so impressed … the staff are so friendly but yet very professional in their jobs. very little pain if any … Dr Sam is great at what he does .. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a dentist… thank you to the Huntline staff.”

Debbie Crede

“Dr. Sam and his staff are very professional and he is the best dentist in the Mid-Missou area. I highly recommend him to my family and friends.”

Sherry Anderson

“Was wonderful, friendly and welcoming to have me as a customer. Hygienist was professional and very efficient in her preparation for me to see Doc. The Doctor was awesome and asked if the procedure felt good and told me how it should feel after my filling. When I told him it didn’t feel that way he went right back to work to make it feel as it had before. Facility was very non-Dentist office like and had character and work environment seemed positive.”

Kevin Backes

“Amazing. Sam was so caring. Even a day later I still feel no pain at all after having an implant done.”

Donna Sandbothe

“I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sam Barnhart. For the majority of my life, (I am in my 50’s) I was embarrassed to smile, because my teeth were not white. Many thanks to Dr. Sam and Dr. John, I now have something to smile about. We were unsure if the KOR whitening would work, but I am excited to say, it worked and I am extremely happy with my white teeth and my new smile! Thank you so much Dr. Sam!”
