My daughter was TERRIFIED of the dentist. The last time she visited the dentist she dad to be sedated and referred to a specialist who suggested she may need to be seen in a hospital because of her extreme fear and crying. So when her school dental exam for school was due we were all concerned about how we could get her through the appointment. When I called to make an appointment at Lagrange Dental Associates I explained my daughter’s fear and Joanne, the office manager suggested we come in and take small steps to see how she would do. My daughter was crying when we entered the office and didn’t want to leave me. Dr. Balice came out and introduced himself and joked with her in the waiting area. Deanna, the hygienist then took her on s tour of the office, showed her all the equipment and answered my daughter’s questions. I assured the dentist that my daughter would need me with her at all times, but they convinced me to let them try working with her without me in the room. Soon I heard her laughing, and being silly with Deanna and I was shocked at how they were able to completely remove her fear. The visit ended with my daughter laughing and telling me how fun her appointment was. I will never take my daughter to another dentist. Dr. Balice and his staff transformed my daughter and removed her fear of the dentist. Our visit was beyond exceptional and I can’t recommend Lagrange Dental Associates enough! They also have a great plan for those of us without dental insurance. Dream come true dentist!

Deanna did such a great job answering my questions! No one had ever explained what they were doing in my mouth during my teeth cleaning!! It made me feel so much safer and I know so much more about my teeth now! I understand why going twice a year is so important!

I had a great experience. Dr. Balice is an amazing dentist…very knowledgeable and personable. He took the time to explain everything that was going on with my teeth and then caught up with me on life in general. Deanna was a great hygienist and spent time going over flossing to make sure I was doing it right. Joanne at the front desk was extremely helpful and pleasant! I would definitely recommend this office to anyone looking for a dentist and hygienist!

I usually don’t consider going to the dentist “fun”. But the staff and Dr. Balice are very welcoming and delightful to be with. It really was fun.
I’ve been going here my whole life and they have always provided excellent service. They are extremely friendly and accommodating! And they always give you their honest opinion. Great group, great experience I would highly recommend.
Everyone was friendly and put me at ease, even though it had been a while since I’d been to the dentist. Great atmosphere, almost fun!
Where else can you find a dentist that will sing you the blues while he is working on your root canal?
I don’t have the words to thank you enough. You have made me feel whole again. You are a rare man nowadays who took the time to make me smile again. Thank you.
Friendly staff and Dr Joe is great! Rally good with kids too.
Very friendly staff and efficient in every way!
As always a pleasant dental experience by a caring, professional staff.
