Ratings for Dr. Charles Balaban
Went to Dr. Balaban since I was 6. I moved and started with a new dentist in Burlington. New office was certainly "fancy", but I felt like I was "beat up" when they filled a chipped tooth that Dr. B had said didn't need to be fixed, and after they fixed it, I have now had 2 years of pain. Just had my files transferred back, and will make the long trip to see only him. Other dentists only care about money....Dr. Balaban cares about his Patients!!
They are so money focused it's not even funny. I used to use this dentist for a while but they really take advantage of their privileges whenever they can. The dental work is not very professional either. A lot of unnecessary procedures and scare tactics. Not good at all.
I just left this office knowing we will never go back. When cleaning my sons teeth she found a cavity, when they sent him to Dr. Balabans office all of a sudden he had three cavities and needed two teeth pulled for absolutely no other reasons but there was a cavity. No X-rays were done, teeth were fine. I felt like Dr. Balaban was really angry that I would not consent to pulling teeth only because "he doesn't need then anyway". My family won't go here anymore.
Wonderful dentist and an amazing staff!! The receptionists are great and caring and always have a smile on their face and greet you kindly!! Dr Balaban's assistant is so kind and very polite and gentle!! Would recommend this dentist to anyone!!!
Went to him since I was a child. I had a breakdown around ten years ago and I am on disability. Made apt. Once they found out I only had disability insurance they latterly kicked me out. Our whole family used him for years but he would not take me because they said they didn't know how much they would be paid. Have used other better dentists since with no problems.
He's been my dentist for 20 years. Lately, I've found the office to be going downhill somewhat. Overcharging for many things and being disorganized. Dr. Balaban himself has always been friendly with me but I question his professional advice sometimes.
the receptionist is quite rude and abrasive. Been with him for years but have moved so finally have an excuse to see a new dentist. Some hygenists are very thorough, others are not and have left me felling like my teeth weren't cleaned at all. Have often waited long for my appointment as well.
