Our Dental Practice History

When Dr. Marlin D. Walker established this dental office in 1965, he was honored to be only the second full-time dentist in the entire Brandon area. In 1988, Dr. David Walker graduated from UF College of Dentistry and joined his father, Dr. Marlin, in practice.

In 1998, Dr. Marlin retired, and Dr. David’s friend and dental school classmate, Dr. Eric Raynal, brought his skills and personal touch to the practice for 23 years before retiring in 2019.

Dr. Sarah Barr joined the practice the same year, and she and Dr. David intend to carry on the tradition of quality dentistry and a family feel that our patients have come to expect.

We are grateful to our new and long-term family of patients who allow us to continue to serve them and do what we love—provide exceptional dentistry to our wonderful community.
