Our beloved dentist of 40 years passed away recently so we were in need of a new dentist. We were referred to Balle and Associates and it has turned out to be a blessing. In my search for a new dentist, I was getting increasingly concerned as to how to avoid the corporate type of offices, the upselling type offices, etc. but the end result is that both my husband and myself are really happy with the Balle office and in particular, Dr. Guild. Not only is it down the street from our house but the entire staff has been so nice and helpful with getting our teeth AND insurance squared away. They use all the techy, cutting edge type gadgets here which to some people might be important, but to me, even the little things go a long way i.e. current magazines in the waiting room, coffee/bottled water offered immediately upon arrival, minimal wait times, follow up calls, Netflix while you wait for your SAME DAY crowns, and most of all, a really pleasant staff.
