Dr. Kiono Barnes, DMD - Biloxi Cosmetic Dentist
Dr. Kiono L Barnes was born in Lansing, MI and raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast by way of Diberville. He graduated from Biloxi High School and then went on to earn a bachelors degree in science at Florida A & M University. He then matriculated at the University of Florida College of Dentistry where he earned a Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree. Dr. Barnes completed a postgraduate general practice residency at the Biloxi VA in 2005. After being displaced by Hurricane Katrina, he subsequently managed a practice in Atlanta, GA for a period of one year. In 2006 he relocated back to the coast where he practiced as a contract general dentist for a year at Keesler Air Force Base. In early 2007 he began Dental Concepts, where he has been practicing ever since.
The Dental Concepts philosophy is based on the aesthetic restoration of the mouth in the absence of aggressive bacteria. True bacterial control allows restorative work to achieve maximum benefit; therefore we focus treatment in phases. The initial phase rids the mouth of harmful bacteria and the secondary phase restores the mouth to its natural beauty and function. We believe a healthy mouth is a happy mouth, and normal form and function is much easier to maintain in the absence of a degenerating bacterial force. True esthetics are achieved by sculpting restorations to coincide with the natural contours and symmetry of the face.
