Prevention

Through preventive dentistry and a proactive approach, we can save you both time and money now and into the future. We use education as the primary key to avoiding potential dental problems and helping our patients maintain good health. Our skilled Ballard dentists visually share with you what is taking place in your mouth and explain measures to lower potential risks. This technology allows you to see any issues taking shape and fully understand how acting early can benefit your smile.

Science

At our office, we believe dentistry is half science and half art. On the scientific side, we help prevent diseases, identify the root cause of common problems, and maintain your smile’s strength and vitality. Our office is equipped with the latest technology to ensure you obtain the best results possible. We use dental lasers for gum treatments, CT scanners to restore or place implants, and 3D technology instead of traditional, goopy impressions.

Art

To our dentists, your smile is like a canvas. In addition to improving your dental health, we look for ways to enhance your smile’s aesthetic beauty, which in turn boosts your self-esteem. Our doctors’ artistic flair and years of experience allow them to successfully tweak, adjust, or even rebuild your entire smile. The result? A beautiful, healthy smile that not only looks amazing but makes you feel confident too.

Lovely facility with great people. I've been going to Ginny (Virginia) for years and she is always warm, conscientious, and professional. I love going to her for my cleanings. I had more extensive work done today by Melissa and Dr. Eggert and they were frequently checking to see that I was comfortable as well as informed about what they were doing each step of the way. They each have a gentle touch and did beautiful work.

My hygienist is Jen and she is great! Jen is excellent in what she does. My cleaning is thorough and virtually pain free. This clinic has an excellent customer service.

I'm always wary after a lifetime of extensive dental work with a new dentist but they have proven themselves at Ballard Dental Arts to be top-notch! And, as they know, I'm picky! Dr. Tobler and all of his staff members have demonstrated their expertise, professionalism, passion and talent for their vocation over a of time. I would absolutely recommend their services for all your family and individual needs!

Going to the dentist is NOT something people look forward to! But the team here is so delightful and really makes it a better experience. Siri is the best hygienist and is so sweet - she makes this chore no one looks forward to actually enjoyable. The front desk staff is always friendly and helpful and Dr Tobler is such a patient, nice doctor. I can’t recommend this practice enough!

Melissa helped make my appointment stress free and comfortable. They were even kind enough to offer me a Bluetooth headset during my visit! Overall, this dentist office offers treatment in a way that is both kind and transparent.

Have been very pleased with Ballard Dental Arts. I'm happy that Ginny has been my Dental Hygienist for many years & I've found Dr. Tobler - who acquired the practice relatively recently - to be thorough, knowledgeable, attentive and congenial.

I honestly look forward to my twice yearly dental appointments. I have been visiting Ballard Dental Arts for a few years and have had a consistently positive experience, even when that experience involved cavities and fillings. Dr. Tobler instantly puts you at ease. He is skilled, trustworthy, and patient to explain each step and option. I've definitely had dentists in the past who left me in the dark while they worked on my teeth, but Dr. Tobler goes out of his way to answer every question, sometimes before you even think to ask.The cherry on the cake is the amazing hygienist Jenni. Not only does she take excellent care of your teeth, but check-ups with her are like visiting with a friend you haven't seen in 6 months. She is pure gold. You may forget you're having your teeth cleaned.

After 4 appointments I still don't have a single complaint. Everyone at the office has been wonderful to deal with and very accommodating. Dr Eggert and Melissa did a great job of keeping me comfortable during a procedure, Ginny was a treat for cleanings. Can't recommend enough.

I have been going to BDA since they opened in Ballard and have always received top notch service. From the smile that greets me upon arrival to the knowledgeable and careful staff, all the way until I walk out the door post op, it truly is a smooth and actually enjoyable process. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for ANY dental needs. I truly am impressed with my most recent visit to get a filling and Zoom Whitening. Melissa G is a saint. She made sure I was comfortable at all times, educated me on what to expect pre and post op, and really just made me feel welcome which is HUGE when going to a dentist and having tools in your mouth. THANK YOU Melissa and team BDA 🙂

It is truly comforting to know you have a professional, personal dentist who actually cares about your health. People without a dentist can have a lot of problems, but with Ballard Dental Arts all your fears are laid to rest. My first procedure this week involved #31, a fractured tooth that would have only gotten worse had I ignored it. Dr. Eggert, Melissa, and the other assistants, are truly helpful and friendly. Very important to my dental care is anesthesia, and I chose Ballard Dental Arts because they use Nitrous, which makes the procedures for me to go a lot smoother. I am not at all concerned about over-hyped dangers of N20, so that part of my dental care is crucial to me.Billing is also very gracious, as they know a full crown can cost over $1,000 which is necessary to pay, or else the tooth gets infected, which can lead to an abscess or much worse. They allow self-pay patients like me, who knows how practically worthless are the dental plans in this state, 90 days same as cash. If not for that, I would have had to postpone my care and put my health at risk. Thank you, Ballard Dental Arts, for truly caring. No, they did not pay me or egg me on to write this review, it's just something that I do anyway for the truly deserving businesses out there. Totally recommended.Best way to get here and avoid the very heavy Ballard traffic is to go over to 17th Ave. NW, and then turn eastbound onto NW 58th street to the end of the block, and they have a parking lot on the north side behind the building, which is actually the main entrance.

I love this place, it had been a while sense I had been to the dentist so I was a bit hesitant to go but once I got there they made me feel right at home. I didn't feel judged and was treated with the up most respect. I would highly recommend them, and staff are all very friendly.

I just got my teeth cleaned and polished and I had probably the best dental experience of my life. Last time 6 months ago I had Jenni work on my teeth and she is the first person to ever get me motivated to floss and buy and use a night guard. It clearly paid off because I had great results to show for my work this appointment. Jenni is extremely educational and I felt cared about here as opposed talked down to like I have other places. I have had nothing but amazing experiences since coming here and will continue to receive my dental work from people I trust. Thanks guys!!

Been a patient here for about a year, I really like the staff, everyone is very calm and patient with scaredy-cats like me. Just now sitting in the waiting room, I’m listening to Allison handle the phones very calmly and professionally with such a sweet temperament. You’ll like this place.

Office Update for COVID-19

Given the latest recommendations for healthcare providers, we've decided to begin limiting the patient services we offer. We're making this decision because we feel a profound responsibility to do our part in efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Our services will be limited primarily to relieve pain, discomfort, and manage infection. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call our office immediately. If you have an appointment that can possibly be postponed, one of our team members will contact you to reschedule.

We anticipate resuming full patient services beginning Monday, May 18th, but we'll reassess the timeline as conditions change. Until then, members of our team will be available to respond to your calls and emails, so please reach out to us with any questions. We thank you for your trust in Ballard Dental Arts as your dental care provider.

As an interim solution, we will be available for virtual consultations to assess treatment needs to see if an actual in-person dental visit is required.
