I’ve been going to Ball Dentistry- North for many years. They have some of the best Dental Hygienists around. Amy is the one I go to the most she’s the best: easy to talk to, extremely friendly, gentle but extremely thorough in cleaning, and has excellent tips to help improve your daily teeth cleaning routine. Thomas has been excellent in assisting with any restorative care, relatable and friendly. Dr. Canal is thorough and checks out any and all concerns. He does an excellent job if and when you need any restorative care. The front office is excellent and always friendly. I highly recommend Ball Dentistry- North.
The girls at the front desk were great, I love Thomas, and Dr Canal was awesome! I recently moved to Indy and dreaded getting a new dentist. But am so happy I chose Ball Dentistry and I highly recommend!
It had been five years since I could afford a dentist, when I walked through the doors of this place. Dr. Craig and assistant Jaylen took such good care of me. I wasn't judged, I genuinely felt like they cared! With the amount of cavities I had, I ended up visiting many times over the last 6 months, and made sure I got Dr. Craig and Jaylen every single time! I just wrapped up my last visit for a cap and crown yesterday, and they did excellent work! It was my first root canal and I didn't have a single fear or anything! I highly recommend these two, especially Jaylen. She is efficient, funny, kind, gets the job done, and also feels like your best friend while doing so! I can't wait to go back to see her and Dr. Craig for my cleaning!!! 10/10 recommend this place!!!!
Though I Had to switch dentist offices due to job/insurance change, my experience was nothing less than perfect! I was in and out in a very reasonable time, I had a FMX/ Hygiene appt… everyone from my EFDA to hygienist were superb! I do miss my old office, but I’m excited for my future visits with this new location! If I could give them more than 5 stars I definitely would! Dr. Canal was excellent btw!
Highly recommended office. Today was wonderful. I have anxiety and Thomas made me feel so comfortable and secure. He’ll walk you through every step. I’m so grateful! Thank you! And Dr. Canal was super thorough and calming too. They work fast and efficiently!! A++++
