George E. Barsa, D.D.S.

“Dentistry is an art. It’s also an everyday happiness; my food and water for the day, if you will. I enjoy dentistry and am a perfectionist. Meeting so many people, helping to improve their lives while learning about their backgrounds and passions, means each day brings me new growth and new opportunities to better understand our world.”

– Dr. George Barsa
