After several consults with orthodontists and dentists, lot’s of time and money spent on braces and a great deal of frustration from getting a lot of “no we can’t do that….it won’t work” or “yes we can do that” only to be told after braces were installed that they could not, I found DR. Eric Ballou.  He took the time to understand what I wanted and after 2 office consults, we came to an agreement that he could do what I needed done and so the work began.  So, right after I had my braces taken off, I found Dr. Ballou who put me in Invisalign and after 4 trays, we achieved the restructuring necessary to move to the cosmetic dentistry part.  He completed that in one sitting and I was fitted for my retainers that same day as well.  I am ELATED to say, he was able to do what no one else was willing or capable of doing and my smile looks amazing all thanks to his patience and ability to think beyond the box and beyond the nay sayers.  I cannot say enough about Dr. Ballou.  He is truly amazing as is his friendly staff.  Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr. Ballou!!!  Oh and he also does both ortho and dentistry so you don’t have to shuffle around town for separate appointments.  Simply AWESOME!!!

Dr. Ballou is by far the best Dentist I have been to. He’s so kind, and gentle and explains things so well . I never feel nervous or uncomfortable. His hygienists are also amazing!! I see Aubree and she’s excellent. She explains things perfectly and is so sweet. She always makes me feel comfortable. They both are top notch!! Love everything about this office!!

I brought my, soon to be 100 yr old,  mother in to see Dr Ballou. She had broken off her canine tooth and hated to smile showing an ugly gap plus its ragged edge scratched her inner lip. She was visiting from NH for only 2 wks. She did not want her tooth extracted, too much pain. Dr Ballou assessed her situation and came up with the perfect quick plan. We returned in 2 days, after a complete 3 hr procedure she left with her perfect smile intact. She said the “only” discomfort she felt was flossing isn’t this amazing. I am new to Boise and have become his new patient due to the caring treatment shown my mother. She’s not afraid to return for a check up! Dr Ballou’s staff reflects his gentle kind ways. Thank you one and all.

Dr. Ballou is the best. Not only is he a really nice guy, but visiting his office is like jumping forward in time!! He has some many new technologies and digital capabilities that I had never even heard of. I had no idea that it was possible to get a crown completely done in one day. I had a front tooth that had been cracked. I hated the way it looked. He told me that he could make it look brand new again that same day! The best part about it was that it was the same price as if I would have gone to another dentist who would have sent a mold off to some lab, leaving me with a temporary crown for a week or so. I love my smile again! Thanks Dr. Ballou!

Highly recommended Dental Office! This is a great location- lots of parking, and nice clean building. The staff is friendly and professional- the atmosphere is friendly and warming. Dr. Ballou, Ivy, and Leann are in my opinion the most knowledgeable and helpful people in the dental field. They will not lie or cheat you- they want what is best for you and will give you options for the best quality care.

I loved my experience at Lake Harbor! Dr. Ballou is incredibly knowledgeable, has state of the art digital equipment and is willing to help you with a financial plan that fits your circumstances. The staff is super kind and considerate. Angie at front desk is remarkable! Thank you, thank you for the best dental experience ever!!!

I come all the way from Scottsdale to be treated by Dr. Ballou. His state of the art practice makes dental work less painful, quicker and more accurate. His prices are reasonable and they always guesstimate your cost. He is honest and kind, and I am less anxious coming here than any other dentist I’ve been to. I highly recommend him!

I hated going to the dentist till I came here. Dr. Eric Ballou is a superb dentist who listens, understands and meets your needs. He is very knowledgeable and keeps up with the latest advances in dentistry. The Lake Harbor Dental staff are great and make you feel welcome. I would beyond highly recommend anyone to come here.

I’m 61 and have seen a LOT of dentists. I have been a patient here for 2-3 years. Most companies (including health professionals) live up to my low expectations. I have been pleasantly surprised on virtually every visit. The state of the art equipment (for crowns, etc.) the professional scheduling (when it is your turn THEY are on time) and mostly the professional, knowledgeable people who are clearly concerned about my OVERALL dental health are the reason I keep going back. I learned more about my teeth (and teeth in general) in the first visit that in all the rest of my life combined. I am a proactive consumer. When I find an exceptional company (good or bad) I share that information. They aren’t paying me to write this. I am writing this because they earned an exceptional recommendation. Thanks, Team!

Lake Harbor Dental has excellent dental services for all ages! Dr. Petersen and Dr. Ballou are the best dentists ever! From basic services to the most complicated dental work with a kind caring manner, they and their technicians and staff do it all! They provide outstanding, flawless work for even the most difficult procedures! If you are new to the area or been here forever, you have to try their services! I recently did the sleep study and got the Opti-Sleep dental guard which has led to much deeper, more restful sleep. Go there today! You will be amazed at what they can do to improve your dental care and health!

Before visiting Lake Harbor Dental I had extreme anxiety about going to the dentist because of an experience 14 years ago at a different dentist.  I avoided going until I absolutely had to because an old filling fell out!  Everyone there made me feel so comfortable, they were all warm and inviting!  Dr.  Blue fixed me up pain free in no time!  I will be back without the anxiety !

I had a molar going south fast and my plan was to yank it and later get an implant.  Dr. Ballou was able to repair it and referred me to a root canal specialist and now I have my tooth and no more pain at far less money and less pain than my original plan.  Many thanks to Crystal and Bree and all the staff who work with Dr. Ballou.  He is a smart one and very gentle on the shots.

I just saw Dr. Ballou today for the first time. Coming from somebody who has spent years at the dentist, and has probably spent over $25,000 on his mouth, I must say that this dental office was the most modern, up to date and most efficient that I’ve been to. They do everything in-house from crowns, veneers to implants which meant I didn’t have to return for a subsequent visit. It literally took him one hour to complete all of my work (crown and fillling) which in the past would have taken a week. I left with my permanent crown and it fits perfectly. Dr. Ballou made me feel very comfortable and explained everything to me in detail. He was able to answer all of my questions. I’m looking forward to returning to have a couple of more things done in addition to a couple of implants. I wouldn’t go anywhere else to have an implant done after being in their office.

I don’t like going to the dentist but with Eric Ballou and his staff I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the level of professionalism and due diligence with my teeth. I would give this team an A+ and I would recommend giving this place your business. I know I’ll be coming back for years to come. Thank you for all you’ve done you have an excellent staff that cares and is professional.

So far, so good. Was pretty uncomfortable going to the dentist after years without, but the experience was as good as it could be. The staff, hygenist, and doctor were very thorough in explaining everything and made the experience as pleasant as possible. The bill was itemized and clearly explained to me before leaving.

★★★★★

Dr.Ballou and his staff are friendly and professional. I have always been anxious about going to dental appointments. I am so grateful to Dr.Ballou and his staff for taking the time to explain everything in detail. They are SO patient! It was clear that my comfort and oral health were their top priority. Thank you for taking good care of me and my kids’ teeth!

My experience at Lake Harbor Dental was excellent! I called on a Monday and made an appointment for the following Wednesday. When I arrived, I was promptly greeted by Joan, she shook my hand and I got started on my paperwork. I was called back right on time and I met Dr. Ballou for the first time in his office (nice touch). Dr. Ballou was courteous, professional and knowledgeable. The work that had to be done was explained using the latest technology and the cost was broken down so that I could understand the value of my insurance. The filling was done quickly and I was on my way back out to Joan where I checked out efficiently. What a great dentist’s office – I highly recommend Dr. Ballou!

Sonya Z. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Easily the best dental experience I have ever had. They took time to understand my issues (with dentists and in my mouth) and then worked with me and educated me throughout my appointment. Leanne, Ivy and Dr Ballou  were phenomenal and I highly recommend Lake Harbor Dental to anyone in the market for a new dentist.

Such a nice place, everyone is always friendly. After going to the same dentist since I was a child then moving to Boise finding a new dentist was nerve racking but I am more than grateful that I found them! They answer all my questions and the front desk always goes out of their way to help answer my insurance questions or barriers.

I recommend Lake Harbor Dental to all my friends and neighbors. The staff is fantastic! They are great with children too. My kids actually look forward to going to their check-ups. Dr. Ballou and Dr. Peterson have always explained procedures and options, and take the time to listen to any concerns. They make our dental experience a pleasant one!

I broke a tooth during a summer internship and they were able to get me in the next day to fix it (it was a root canal so I wasn’t in pain). When I came back up I made an appointment with them. They were able to fix my mouth which had fallen to decay from going to University and not being able to afford going to the dentist. I haven’t smiled so much in years, but thanks to Dr. Ballou and his staff, I can be confident again.
