Dr Barno joined the practice in 2013 after serving for five years as a dentist in the United States Army. Dr. Barno received his BS in Biology from The Citadel and attended dental school at the Medical University of South Carolina on a full scholarship. In between undergraduate and dental school, Dr Barno studied Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Indiana University.
Following dental school, Dr Barno joined the U.S. Army Dental Corps and completed a 1-year AEGD (Advanced Education in General Dentistry) residency that focused heavily on comprehensive dentistry, surgery, and complex treatment planning. He is an active member of the SC Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. His professional interests lie in cosmetic and restorative dentistry (Crowns, Bridges, Dentures, and Implants) and endodontics (root canals).
In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons. He enjoys sculpture, playing drums, and running. He and his family live in Blythewood and are members of Blythewood Presbyterian Church. Dr Barno’s wife, Michaela, is the manager of the Blythewood Farmer’s Market.
Dr Barno is a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) and was awarded the Combat Action Badge and the Bronze Star Medal for his service in combat with the 25th Infantry Division. He is a graduate of the US Army Airborne school, the Combat Casualty Care Course, and the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology’s Forensic Dentistry course.
Dr. Christopher Robnett started this practice over thirty years ago at its present location in Northeast Columbia. He grew up in the area and graduated from Spring Valley High School in 1974, Clemson in 1978, and MUSC in 1983. He met his wife Dixie while at Spring Valley and they have three grown children and currently six grandchildren.
As most of his patients know, he loves to sail on Lake Murray, play his upright bass as part of a praise ensemble at his church, and working with wood. Needless to say the increasing number of grandchildren takes precedence over all of this.
He says that most of all though, God has blessed him with not only an unbelievable wife and family but also a very special dental practice with great patients and staff. “I have had the unique opportunity to develop longterm relationships with countless patients/friends and we have gone through the highs and lows of life together. I also have the privilege of them trusting me for their dental health needs.”
Dr. Robnett believes that it is his responsibility to work closely with a select group of dental specialists to provide for his patients the treatment plan that will keep their mouth healthy for their lifetime. He takes a special interest in providing the restorative treatment necessary for this whether it be fillings, crowns, bridges or making crowns or partials that are to be used in conjunction with dental implants. He has also performed cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers since their inception in the 1980’s, along with composite bonding and bleaching.
Dr. Drew Edwards joined the practice in 2019. He grew up in the Atlanta area, and moved to Columbia to attend the University of South Carolina, where he majored in Marketing and Management. He worked as an EMT for a year before attending MUSC for dental school.
Dr. Edwards is passionate about patient care, and feels very fortunate to work in a practice committed to the health and well being of its patients. He looks forward to giving back to the community by fostering lasting relationships with his patients, based on a foundation of trust.
In his free time, Dr. Edwards enjoys playing guitar and singing at various restaurants and venues in Columbia. He also enjoys volunteering and community service, as well as exercising and playing with his dog, Penny.
