Meet Dr. Patrice Barber of Alliance Family Dental, Fayetteville, NC
A native of Silver Springs, Maryland, Dr. Patrice Barber received a full academic scholarship to Florida A&M University upon graduation from high school. After graduating summa cum laude with a degree in biology/pre-dentistry, she went on to continue her education at the University of Maryland Dental School. Here she was a recipient of the U.S. Army’s Health Professions Scholarship, and graduated with honors.
Upon entering the Army, Dr. Barber was commissioned as a Captain and attended a year-long residency in general dentistry (AEGD-1) at Fort Sill, OK before completing a tour at Camp Casey, Korea. She completed her military obligation at Fort Bragg and transitioned to civilian dentistry in 2004. She then spent 5 years as an associate at a group practice in the Fayetteville area before striking out on her own as a family dentist.

In addition, she maintains membership in the American Dental Association, Old North Dental Society, North Carolina Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
Outside of the office, Dr. Barber regularly makes time to speak at local schools and community centers about the dental field and oral health issues.
