William E. Barbour, DDS
Dr. Barbour was born in Rockland and he spent his early childhood here in Glen Cove. He graduated from Rockland High school in 1961, the University of Maine at Orono in 1965 and Georgetown Dental School in 1970. He enlisted in the US Navy Dental Corps for 2 years before returning to Rockland to practice with Dr. Michael Dougherty. Upon completion of the building in 1974 where Glen Cove Dental now exists, they transferred their practice from Rockland to Glen Cove. Dr. Barbour married his high school sweetheart, Susan and they had 2 children, Beth and Jake. During his children's school years he was a coach for pee-wee sports and active in the high school basketball boosters club. He was on the S.A.D. 5 school board for 4 years.
Both of their children were active in sports and they have fond memories of watching their games. Now they are busy following the activities of their 3 grandchildren, Cole, Thomas, and Julia. During his 40 years as a dentist, he has always studied new techniques and new materials. The majority of the materials that he uses every day are different than what he used in dental school. He is an active member of the Casco Bay Study Club. He still loves his profession as well as his patients and he has no intention of retiring.
