 High Standards

We believe that our patients deserve the utmost in personalized and quality dental services. Our dental team is highly trained to provide the  excellence  in dental care. Dr. Balabanian is a devoted dentist and has been practicing dentistry in  San Jose, Santa Clara since 1990. He provides an exceptional, personalized treatment planning utilizing the latest techniques in restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health.  Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

Dr. Balabanian is a true believer that  education and prevention are  the keys to optimal dental health.  He strives to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”.  That’s why he focuses on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.  Dr. Balabanian and his highly trained hygienist Natalie, know the importance in routine cleaning, flossing, sealants, and fluoride in preventing dental disease.  Our dental office is also concerned about your health.  A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is also very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
