When you visit Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne,
you’ll quickly discover that we are not your ordinary dental practice. We pride ourselves on paying extraordinary attention to your comfort, and spending time with you one-on-one.
You will receive a thorough exam and we’ll explain everything in plain English and make sure you really understand what’s going on in your mouth. We believe our patients deserve the best dental care, and it’s precisely this commitment to the highest quality that sets us apart. We call it our Patient-First Care.
Our staff has a wealth of knowledge and years of experience
and have been hand picked because they are at the top of their field. We strive to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry by taking on average more than 50 hours of continuing education courses each year. When you receive treatment, you can be sure it meets the highest standards. We don’t cut corners on materials or laboratories and we make sure that whatever we do for you, that it is conservative, predictable and long lasting! After experiencing care in our office, you’ll understand why our patients say, “You have never been to a dentist like this before.”
Our state of the art facility was designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. Our goal is to make you feel relaxed and comfortable, like visiting a friend’s home. Our first class service includes complimentary bottled water, warm fleece blankets and your choice of an iPod or video glasses to watch TV during your treatment. While our digital technology makes your dental treatment faster, safer, and more comfortable.

One of our talented hygienists will review your medical and dental history, take a full series of digital x-rays and digital photographs so that we can show you with complete detail what is going on in your mouth. In addition, you will receive a bite analysis, a full periodontal screening, a laser cavity screening, and an oral cancer screening as part of your comprehensive exam.

All while you watch a movie or TV on a pair of our personal video gasses.
