I have been going here for years.  They are very caring and competent.  Any procedures that I have had done here have been next to pain free.  They have been known to stop and make sure that everything was okay when working on me.  I was always fine and I have even experienced them calling me later to check on me.  I wholeheartedly recommend this office.

I have been thinking about you all, starting up again in your new office, and it occurred to me that I want to say thank you to you all: Dr. Balloch- who is patient and kind and has never hurt me even once: and to Lisa F who reassures me every step of the way: and Tammy and Aimee who help me figure out insurance issues and keep countless appointments and always look happy to see me; and to Lisa R who also does; and finally to my new friend Raquel who shares my love of music! Thank you!

Dr. Bidra you have given me a new beautiful smile that is extremely comfortable and I am able to enjoy a lot of foods that I used to avoid. I was informed by two dentists that I could not get permanent teeth because of no bone, but you made it happen! You are truly a master in your field.

Featured Dental Procedures

Porcelain Veneers

Chipped, uneven, or stained teeth can make you feel self-conscious when talking to your colleagues or friends. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that cover the front surface of your teeth, concealing dental imperfections and improving the size, shape, and shade of your teeth all at once. Dr. Balloch is one of the most highly trained porcelain veneers providers in the world, and he has won several American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry competitions as a direct result of his cosmetic work. He can evaluate your smile and determine whether veneers are the right solution for your needs.

Dental Implants

Gum disease, dental decay, and dental trauma can all lead to tooth loss. Although missing teeth are very common, they can cause serious, long-term issues if left untreated. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are designed to replace missing tooth roots. They can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or all teeth in your mouth such as All-on-4 treatment. Dr. Bidra has extensive experience with dental implants having placed and restored thousands of implants and will be responsible for your entire implant treatment making it a convenient and comfortable experience for you!

Full Mouth Reconstruction

If your teeth and gums are affected by a wide range of oral health issues, it can be difficult to know where to start. A full mouth reconstruction is a custom treatment plan that combines various dental procedures such as veneers, crowns, and dental implants to meet your individual oral health needs. Every full mouth reconstruction is custom-designed around the unique oral health and cosmetic needs of the patient. No matter which procedures you choose to incorporate, our dentist can perform them in our office, making treatment extremely convenient.

Sleep Dentistry

Some patients experience extreme anxiety due to dental phobia. If going to the dentist triggers feelings of fear or anxiety, sleep dentistry can help you get the care you need without feeling nervous. Drs. Balloch and Bidra work with a dental anesthesiologist to offer intravenous (IV) sedation. Intravenous sedation helps patients slip into a semi-conscious state and remain unaware during their dental procedure. Sedation can help patients undergoing extensive procedures, those who feel anxious, or those who have difficulty sitting comfortably for long periods.

I and my family have been patients for years and we all have the utmost confidence in Dr Balloch's practice.  I myself have unfortunately had a wide range of dental problems over the years and Dr Balloch has rectified all of them with great skill and caring.  In the specific instance where I needed cosmetic surgery to correct the accidental loss of front teeth, Dr Balloch sprang into action to give me beautiful temporary teeth right away.  Then he initiated a sophisticated process to provide wonderfully crafted permanent replacements.  All through the process Dr Balloch married the perfect combination technology, precision, and even an great artistic eye to provide truly perfect, perfectly natural and exceptional front teeth that look as if they always were mine.

Outstanding.  Hard to describe how beautiful my teeth look.  I was a complicated case, and Dr. Balloch and his entire team was completely focused on ensuring everything worked perfectly.  I had many extra visits (due to my own issues) and I was always given priority and extra care.  The temporaries were so beautiful it was hard to believe the permanents would be even better -  but they are.  All issues resolved and I couldn't be happier.  Tremendous service by the entire staff and amazing outcome.  Highly recommend.
