Dr. Barr at The Ortho Barr in Spartanburg and Inman, SC

Dr. Patrick Barr

Dr. Patrick Barr is the owner and sole orthodontist at The Ortho Barr. Dr. Barr was born and raised just north of Birmingham, Alabama. He chose to be an orthodontist because he wanted to help people build confidence within themselves. This passion for helping others began when Dr. Barr worked as a personal trainer in college where he helped people realize their fitness goals. “As a trainer I could only encourage and support – I couldn’t do the work for my clients. Being an orthodontist allows me to continue serving people, but I now have the skills to put the work in on behalf of my patients, which is truly a privilege”. He has a passion for people and enjoys the ability to serve where he can.

He lived and worked as an associate in Savannah, GA before taking over Smiley Orthodontics in July of 2020.

Dr. Barr is married to his lovely wife Angie who is a personal stylist and extreme extrovert (unlike himself – they say opposites attract). They have a little girl named Brooklyn and a Bernese Mountain Dog named Gatsby. Dr. Barr and Angie love to travel, try new restaurants, and take Gatsby on hikes. His wife enjoys cooking and hosting gatherings, while Dr. Barr enjoys eating. They both value friendships and relationships, love a good game night, and can binge a TV series.
