I had previously had a very bad experience with a different dentist when I got my wisdom teeth pulled, and I hadn't been to the dentist for more than two years after that. That same dentist I found had really messed up a crown, and it fell out after just two years. I decided to go to Dr. Ballard, because I used to work with her husband and I've known many co-workers and friends that have had amazing results and experiences. As soon as I arrived, the woman at the Front Desk, Clea, was incredibly warm and comforting and was very assuring. I filled out my paperwork and nearly no wait before I was called back. The dental assistant was very nice and calming while she did my X-Rays and initial consultation. And then Dr. Ballard was simply magnificent. She was so calming, and talked to me the entire procedure. The entire experience was really amazing, and I am so glad that I went to this place. It's a tad more expensive than some of the other dentists out there, but you really get what you pay for (they even gave me the option to watch TV while they did the procedure!) Incredibly classy establishment, outstanding staff, and amazing service!! Highly recommend to anyone needing dental work!!

I love Penrod Dental Care. Today visit was excellent. The staff is very friendly, professional and always on top of things. I love the hours, and super easy to get an appointment. Cheri my hygienist is very caring, thoughtful and since I have a very bad reflux and I gag easy Cheri gives it 100% to make me comfortable and stress free. Cheri also provided me a blanket to keep warm. Dr. King exceeded my expectations. He’s very professional, explained step by step what he was going to do, met my dental needs stress and pain fee. Super nice, and caring Dentist. I will definitely recommend Penrod Dental Care to family and friends.
