"I started my career in dentistry 41 years ago," Dr. Barron commented. "My wife, Sandy, and I arrived in Guttenberg in July 1980, just in time to ride on RAGBRAI VII, which ended their ride in Guttenberg that year. My father and I were in practice together until his retirement. He had practiced over 50 years in dentistry."
