Knowledge to skill.

The most effective way to bridge the gap between knowledge and skill is to work with someone who's mastered it.

Knowing about and doing advanced dentistry are two separate things. Unfortunately, many dentists understand dentistry's potential, but few have turned that knowledge into the kind of skills that create life-changing results for their patients. The reason is simple. They try and do it alone.

There's a better, faster way!

We've helped thousands of dentists like you advance their skills.

The close relationship between Arrowhead Dental Lab and the Dr. Dick Barnes Group is intentional. When Dr. Dick Barnes started practicing dentistry, he discovered that the biggest obstacle to rapid skill development and improved case outcomes was the false belief that he had to do everything by himself.

He started Arrowhead Dental Lab because he couldn’t find a lab with the expertise to help him do comprehensive cases. So Dr. Barnes assembled a group of experts in case design and created a support structure for his highly productive practice. The result was amazing dentistry for all his patients. Today, that expertise is also available to the thousands of dentists who attend courses with the Dr. Dick Barnes Group.
