Dr. McKay Barlow
Dr. Barlow is originally from California, but has come to love Southern Idaho. After serving an LDS mission in London, England, he attended BYU where he fell in love with and married his wife, Julie. After graduation, he dragged her tentatively to Los Angeles, where he attended UCLA Dental School.
In 2002, Dr. Barlow graduated cum laude and was elected by his professors to OKU, the National Dental Honor Society. He then moved back to Utah, even though Julie had come to love the sunny lifestyle, where he completed a General Practice Residency at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. He spent the next 10 years in a large group practice in the Magic Valley, before deciding to finally fulfill his dream of opening his own office.
Dr. Barlow has nine children and enjoys traveling, sports, the outdoors, and spending time with his family. He is also a pretty good juggler!
