Dr. Barry Widdicombe was born in the midwest in East Lansing Michigan. He went thru grade school and middle school there and then moved with his folks and three brothers to Ft Wayne where he attended Ft Wayne Snider High School. From there Dr. Widdicombe went on to Indiana University at Bloomington and was fortunate to get into IU Dental School after only 3 yrs instead of the usual 4 yrs of undergraduate work. Dr. Widdicombe received his DDS degree from IU School of Dentistry in 1977.
Upon graduation he joined Dr. Robert Risk in practice and had a very successful dental practice with him until Dr. Risk retired.
Dr. Widdicombe spends 30+ hrs a year in continuing education courses throughout the country seeking out the top clinicians and educators to keep abreast of the latest techniques and procedures.
Dr. Widdicombe is a member of the Indianapolis District Dental Society as well as the Indiana Dental Association and the American Dental Association.
He has spent a fair amount of time doing volunteer work both in the Indianapolis community as well as outside of the country. Recently Dr. Widdicombe traveled to El Salvador to perform much needed dental work on the very friendly and grateful residents of several small villages.
In his free time, Dr. Widdicombe loves to travel both in the states and internationally. He is an avid outdoorsman and loves almost any activity that gets him outside including biking, hiking, skiing, whitewater kayaking, golfing and the list goes on.
Dr. Widdicombe has two wonderful adult children and a daughter in law. He is very proud of all of them.
