Licensed denturist, Sandin Barney has come to Conrad and has purchased the Conrad Denture Center at 302 S. Delaware.

Barney moved to Conrad with his wife Heidi who also works with him in his office. They can be reached at 271-2000 to schedule appointments.

Barney graduated from high school in St. George, Utah but traveled the world during the earlier years of his education. His father was in the United States Air Force and they lived in places such as California, Washington, Canada, Spain and Brazil.


He attended college at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton, Canada where he obtained his denturist degree. He was employed with other denturists before and during his internship which he completed in High River, Alberta, Canada.


Barney decided to work in the health field because his father is a dentist and his mother is a nurse. His brother is also a denturist and completed school only one year ahead of him.

After the job opportunity arose in Conrad, the Barneys didn’t look back and have liked it ever since. Barney said he hadn’t thought twice about it.
