Bart Eisenbarth grew up in the United States in the mountain state of Idaho. He attended the University of Idaho, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Zoology, and then went on to Creighton University, where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.  After graduating from Creighton, Bart returned to Idaho to go into private practice.  After 10 years of private practice ownership, Bart decided to pursue the care of patients in more underserved areas.  He and his family relocated to St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, where he was the director of a community health dental clinic.  After a couple years and one large hurricane, he moved on to the wilderness state of Maine, where he was the Chief Dental Officer of a very large community health dental facility for three years prior to moving to New Zealand.

 Bart is a Fellow of the International College of Dentists and has also volunteered on two health expeditions to India with the Himalayan Health Exchange, where he worked with an international team to deliver health care to the local peoples.

 When Bart is not practicing dentistry, he spends most of his time with his wife,  two sons, and daughter enjoying the outdoors.  He is a talented, award-winning artist who enjoys painting and drawing, and also loves travel, pheasant hunting, hiking, mountain biking, scuba diving and skiing, and hopes to learn to surf with his children this summer.
