Dr. Barnett is amazing! He is the first dentist I’ve been to that eases my anxiety. I don’t dread going in for procedures. His work is meticulous, yet quick. I feel totally at ease in his care. His staff is also very kind and welcoming. The office is inviting and beautifully decorated as well. I rarely ever write reviews, but I’m THAT pleased with Divine Expressions. 10 out of 10 recommend!

I have always been very selective of my dentists due to pretty severe dental anxiety. I've been coming to Divine Expressions for approximately 6 months now and I have always had a great experience! I've had cleanings, fillings, and wisdom teeth extraction and always left satisfied. My fillings were always 100% pain free and I found that I didn't even need any anxiety reducing measures, as everyone made me incredibly comfortable. My cleaning was amazing, Roxy is one of the nicest people I've ever met. I very recently had my wisdom teeth removed and I felt no pain and didn't even need to take pain medicine afterwards. I used sedation for this and I didn't have an ounce of anxiety before, during, or after. The office is very focused on what your goals are with your smile as well as keeping your mouth healthy. I would recommend Divine Expressions to anybody that is searching for a dentist, I actually look forward to dental appointments here!

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.
