give them a perfect smile.


Our mission is to make sure your child has a smile to be proud of

We want to teach your child how to take good care of their teeth, and make sure they have a great relationship with the dentist that can last a lifetime.


Accepting new patients

Dr. Balster would love to invite you to our office for a tour, or schedule your child's cleaning or tooth examination.




Thank you for your kind and gentle care. I am so thankful my daughter had her
cavities filled by you. The assistant was wonderful! Thank you both so much. We
couldn’t ask for anything better!

Love this office! Staff is so great and Dr. Balster is so great with kids...we were referred to him a few years back to have a cavity filled and now will only see him.

Hi, I’m Dr. Erik, and this is my family. My children mean everything to me, so I value the trust that you place in me by bringing your children to our office. The best part of my job is developing relationships with kids who initially might fear the dentist and see them turn into perfect patients.
