About Our Team

What makes a great pediatric dental office? The staff of course, and Dr. Barney has some of the best supporting around.

Dr. Barney

Pediatric Dentist / Orthodontist
I was born in Logan, Utah and grew up in North Logan when it was a farming community. I worked in the farms and went to North Cache Junior High before moving to Willard where I worked in the fruit orchards. I graduated from Box Elder High School where I was active in music and track. I served an LDS mission to Barcelona, Spain and later graduated from Utah State University. I graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio dental school and finished a residency in Pediatric Dentistry at the same school. I served in US Navy for 3 years as a pediatric dentist at the Naval Air Station in Rota, Spain. After the Navy I completed a residency in Orthodontics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston earning a certificate and Master’s degree. I have been in private practice since 1994 here in the Salt Lake Valley. I also teach the dental residents at Primary Children’s Medical Center, the University of Utah Hospital, and the Veteran’s Hospital. I am married to Chris Adams and have four children, Megan, Adam, Chelsea, and Timothy.

Kristina

Dental Assistant
I was born and raised in Utah. It wasn’t until I met my husband, Adam that I realized what I had been missing out on living in Utah. Now I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, biking, or any other outdoor activities. Working for Dr. Olsen as a dental assistant is a privilege and one day I hope to have a career in dental hygiene.

Kenda

Financial Coordinator
I have lived in Utah most of my life. When I was fifteen, Dr. Barney was my orthodontist and after 1 1/2 years of braces, I now have a smile that I am not embarrassed by. I have worked for Dr. Barney since December 1999. In 2003, I married Zeke and together we have 2 beautiful daughters. I love spending time with my family and being a mom.

Chris

Appointment Coordinator
I was born and raised in Salt Lake, and met my husband, Terry on my 1st and last blind date. Together we have raised 3 sons and a daughter. I have worked for Dr. Olsen since 2000. When I am not working I enjoy hiking, scrapbooking, attending sporting events and spending time with my family and my little grandkids.

Sabrina

Dental Assistant
I have lived in Utah all of my life and I love it here! I love the snow and cold weather, mostly because it means I can go ice fishing. I also love to go camping, hiking, and trying new things. I enjoy reading and my favorite book is the Hunger Games. I have only worked for Dr. Barney for a few months but I already love being here and working with a great team.

Courtney

I was born and raised in Arizona. I moved to Utah when I was 8 years old. I’ve been married for 7 years. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and being outdoors. I love working for Dr. Olsen and being a part of his amazing staff.

Dawn

I grew up in Orem and I have lived in Utah most of my life, except for the 3 months when I lived in Maui. I have been working for Dr. Olsen since 1997. I married Brandon, in February 1995 and together we have a son named Justin and our dog, Cricket. As a family we enjoy camping and riding four-wheelers, and when I have some time to myself I love to read and watch my favorite tv shows. My favorite authors include, Nora Roberts and James Patterson.
