Fun For The Whole Family At Carmody Recreation Center
Most families are always looking for things that they can do together. This can be a challenging idea. The kids want to do certain things, and the adults want to do others, so it can be hard. Sure, you can go to an amusement park, which can cost upwards up $200.00 and more, for food, beverages, and souvenirs. Why not just find some local fun, just as Dr. Travis Barr and the team from Incline Family Dentistry.

On March 19th, Governor Jared Polis signed an executive order requiring that all dental offices suspend operations for elective procedures until April 14th. If you have an appointment scheduled before April 14th, we will be calling to reschedule your appointment. Please be patient with us as we work through these logistics.
I will remain available for any person who is experiencing dental pain, infection, or swelling, however, all other procedures are being postponed. To reach me for urgent dental needs please call the office for the emergency number and leave a message. We will continue to monitor the situation and make updates as more guidance becomes available from the State, CDC and the Colorado Dental Association.
Thank you for your patience during this difficult time and we are wishing everyone good health.
Dr. Travis Barr
