Barry MacDonald, D.D.S., M.S.
Dr. MacDonald grew up in Southern California. His love of sports ultimately lead to a scholarship to play football at the University of California at Riverside, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. While at UC Riverside, he found a passion for volunteering with mentally handicapped children. At the urging of his mother and his desire to work with the mentally handicapped, he pursued a profession in pediatric dentistry.
Upon acceptance to the School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California, Dr. MacDonald pursued his dreams and graduated with a dental degree. Upon graduation, he was recognized for his interest in pediatrics and was awarded with a certificate of excellence by the American Society of Dentistry for Children, and selected for specialty training in pediatric dentistry at USC. After this specialty training, Dr. MacDonald attained his Board Certification and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. MacDonald served 22 years in the Air Force, earning the rank of Colonel and traveling the world with his wife and two children. He retired in Roseville, and joined the Gentle Dental Rocklin team in 2004 to serve the pediatric community with his simple philosophy: provide a service that is honest, compassionate, and respectful to both patient and family.
