Testimonials

2 weeks ago
I arrived at Divine Expressions office very anxious. One of my fears is going to a dentist, however at Divine Expressions things were different. I was greeted outside of the office by a staff member and escorted into the office where the Covid -19 measures were in place. The office environment and the assessment room were clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and professional. After the initial X-rays, Dr Barnett came and made an assessment of what was needed to be done. He was very professional and took time to answer my questions. As new patient I can say that I am pleased with my care so far and would recommend Divine Expressions Family Dentistry to any one looking for good dentist and a friendly team.

Meet the Doctor 

Dr. Laurentis Barnett was born and raised in Florence, Alabama. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of North Alabama in Florence and his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee. Dr. Barnett also obtained a Masters of Divinity from Ambridge University in Montgomery, AL. Dr. Barnett earned several awards and honors while earning his various degrees. 

Upon completion of dental school, Dr. Barnett was certified by the standards of the Alabama State Board and he moved to Brewton and later Gilbertown, AL to fulfill obligations to the National Health Service Corporation by providing dental care to low-income patients. In October 2012 Dr. Barnett purchased his second dental practice in Madison, Al Horizons Dental Concepts and transformed it to Divine Expressions Family Dentistry in May 2014. In fulfilling Meharry’s mission of “Service of God through service of mankind”, Dr. Barnett has found dentistry to be his true passion in changing the world one smile at a time!

Dr. Barnett feels that continuing education is paramount to providing his patients with the best care possible. Because of this Divine Expressions are a Fortune Management Practice which drives excellence in life, dentistry and patient care. Dr. Barnett is also a member of the Crown Council which is an alliance of dedicated, leading-edge dentist and dental teams who have a commitment to building practices that provide continually rising standards of care. Dr. Barnett is also a member of the International Council of Oral Implantologist and prides himself as being ‘Alabama’s source for implant and sedation dentistry’. There are many other organizations that Dr. Barnett holds membership with and is active in them all. Dr. Barnett has received numerous awards and honors, a few of them include; the National Trio Achievers Award because of his scholastic achievement and contributions to the community, Dr. Barnett was selected as one of the top 40 dentists under 40 in 2015, and the 2015 Young Professional of the year by the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, Divine Expressions is a 2016 contender for Best Medical Practice of the year by the Huntsville/Madison Chamber of Commerce. 

Understanding the need to give back, Dr. Barnett travels on yearly trips to Haiti providing dental and nutritional care to help eliminate hunger and pain related to poor and un-affordable dental and health care to those who might otherwise not receive it. 

The literacy rate for Haitians is 53% compared to 86% for the US and 90% for Latin America. The highest education for many Haitians is only the 6th grade. Because of this, Dr. Barnett funds a school on top of the mountains of La Fond in which 331 students are educated currently to the eight grade and fed daily. For many of these students, the only meals they receive are the ones provided by Dr. Barnett’s school. Dr. Barnett and the team are committed to giving back not just in Haiti but to those in need. After all, we are God’s hands, feet, and spoken words here on earth”!  

Dr. Barnett keeps himself very busy in his church where he serves as Senior Pastor of Bethel church. He is the current Vice-President of the Kappa Nu Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. He serves on the Alumni Board for the University of North Alabama and is President of the Huntsville/Madison chapter. He is an avid football fan, “Roll Tide”, and loves traveling, reading, being outside in nature and spending quality time with family and friends.
