Meet the Doctors

Douglas W. Shafer , DDS

Dr. Douglas W. Shafer is here to make you smile. With friendly, conscientious care—and some laughs—his mission is to help you feel happy with your smile and overall health. He understands that some people dread dental work, so he strives to make each visit as pleasant as possible. Your comfort and confidence are his priority.

Originally from western Washington, Dr. Shafer is excited to be in Oregon and part of our community. He loves spending time with his wife and three young children, and you can often find him playing sports, following his favorite teams, quoting movies, or exploring outdoors. He has a passion for helping others and a gift for working with people, especially children. He’s been honored to volunteer at local elementary schools and for dental programs for underprivileged patients.

He is committed to using the latest innovations and technology. He takes regular continuing education courses and attends a monthly study club to offer the best dental care available.

Dr. Shafer earned his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University and his dental degree at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. He previously practiced in Hillsboro. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Oregon Dental Association, the Academy of LDS Dentists, and the Academy of Sports Dentistry. He served a two-year mission for his church in Venezuela and speaks fluent Spanish.

David P. Barney, DDS

Dr. David P. Barney, DDS has been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry since he graduated from Northwestern Dental School in Chicago, IL in 1977. Prior to this he received his Bachelor of Science degree from Church College of Hawaii (now BYU of Hawaii), in 1974.

Dr. Barney began his practice of dentistry in downtown Beaverton with his Uncle, Dr. Gordon Stratford. In 1985, Dr. Stratford retired and Dr. David Barney continued to build his growing practice until his longtime staff member and scheduling coordinator, Mary Kauppila suggested that we move to the up and coming area in South Beaverton Murrayhill. Dr. Barney was one of the first tenants in the Murrayhill Shopping Center in 1988 and one of the longest termed tenants to date.

Dr. David Barney has been married to his wife Doreen for 40 years and together they have five children: Doug, a salesman and father to their first grandchild Kaya; Dave, the young Dr. Barney & father to Bennett & Dylan; Deanna, a nurse practitioner at St. Vincent Hospital & mother to Anderson; Darwin, shortstop for the AAA LA Dodgers & father to grandchild Hayden, Zoey & Devyn; Darilyn, aspiring singer, and math teacher. Dr. Barney was a vital member of establishing the Murrayhill Little League and has sponsored a major league team since 1992 as well as coached for eight years, including managing the All Star Team. Dr. Barney has coached in the Beaverton Babe Ruth league and has helped with the Southridge High School boys and girls basketball programs. He is an ongoing sponsor of the Southridge American Legion Baseball program. Dr. Barney likes to spend his free time on the golf course but would rather watch up and coming athletes, since he has worked as a baseball scout for the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs.
