What Dr. Balaouras’ Patients Say
Dr. Balaouras was fantastic. He took his time and explained everything. A great dentist and expert in his craft.
I have been seeing Dr. Balaouras for more than 23 years and can’t imagine allowing anyone else to work on my teeth. I trust him implicitly. He’s patient, gentle, explains everything, doesn’t take unnecessary measures and his talent is top notch. He has kept my teeth healthy and good looking. I live almost 2 hours out of the city and still make the journey to come to him and only him. Whoever he refers me to for root canal or implants are also top notch. Thank you Dr. Balaouras for your excellent care and great jokes – of course very hard to laugh and respond when you have tools in my mouth – but I love you no matter what!!! YOU’RE THE BEST.
