I had all of my teeth checked by Dr. Balloch. He additionally told me which teeth needed to be extracted. He coordinated many services for me. I did a lot of research to find Dr. Balloch. And most importantly, I was asking many people. But I found him purely by accident looking on the Internet for a top dentist in the area. The first time I walked in the door I went to the desk, and of course I had an appointment, but they just made me feel like I was so comfortable and they gave me a questionnaire. And my main concern, are they compassionate, not only the dentist but his staff as well. I feel better. I'm happier. I'm not afraid to smile without covering my face. I'm just happy. And actually, now that the procedure is completed, I miss coming here. And that's kind of crazy because I've never enjoyed going to the dentist. I would have to rate this experience as there is no comparison. I've been to so many dentists and Dr. Balloch is by far the most caring and concerned dentist I've ever been to. I have recommended Dr. Balloch to so many people and I think two of my friends have actually come here. And it's just typically for evaluations and the twice a year dentistry for maintenance purposes. Coming to Dr. Balloch has changed my life. I'm more confident at work and I had to conduct meetings and go to clients and talk with them. And I just felt happier with myself, my appearance. It's just really changed me in many ways. And by far I'm happier health-wise as well.
