Ballinger Family Dental Care
Hello, and welcome to our dental clinic! Your family’s safety and comfort are very important to us. Our goal is to provide the best possible dental care for each patient. Both Dr. Christopher and Dr. Nermin Ballinger have dedicated their careers to helping families of all ages get the dental care and maintenance required for healthy smiles that last a lifetime.
In recent months, COVID-19 has changed how we do things, and you can rest assured that we do all we can to provide you a safe and worry-free visit. We can all do our part to mitigate the spread of bacteria and viruses. Social distancing will go down in history as the hallmark of 2020. And many of you are concerned as to infection control. We are proud to have always utilized sterile distilled water systems in all of our dental equipment. We never use street water and avoid the scale debris that you find in typical plumbing. Furthermore, our rooms are disinfected between each patient and all equipment is sterilized in one of our three steam autoclaves. We also utilize UV light and the best cleaning products between patients. We treat our families here too.
We are a general family dentistry practice seeing patients from age 1 to 100, and we accept most private insurances, Medicaid, Health Choice, cash, debit and credit cards. Regardless of your coverage, we will afford you treatment choices. We are conveniently located on Coliseum Dr across from WXii Channel 12, and the Red Cross in Winston-Salem. We are easily accessible from any of the surrounding counties. We can usually accommodate scheduling several patients together for the convenience.. We are also accepting walk-ins and emergencies during business hours. We have a highly qualified bilingual staff for the comfort of our Hispanic patients.
As parents, we are especially attuned to the needs of parents of atypical children, and routinely see special needs patients, as well as medically compromised patients of all ages. Unlike some offices, our thirty two years experience allows one patent to be present and directly involved with their child through most treatment modalities. We provide preventative, cosmetic and restorative care, oral surgery and root canal therapy, and offer nitrous oxide, buffered anesthetics and televisions to help with anxiety management. We take the time necessary to discuss treatment options that will maintain your dental health, and we take great pride in our ability to see you in a timely manner.
We share a philosophy that empowers patients and parents to make educated decisions about their care. We foster and demand a respectful workspace for all patients and staff alike. For that reason, we reserve the right to prohibit cell phones and other distractive behavior from treatment areas. We do not advertise unlike many offices, but have enjoyed tens of thousands of patients from word of mouth referrals. We can also provide referrals to the finest specialists in Winston Salem. We have an amazing staff that believes in what we do for every patient and enjoys making dental care easy and informative. “Some of the nicest smiles in the Triad pass through our doors, we'd love to see yours”.
