Dr. Balkins and his dental office made this by far the best dental experience I have had. I had a crown and several fillings taken care of, with little to no pain and with excellent results. They have a fantastic office staff who are friendly, efficient and accommodating. Dr. Balkins was concerned for my comfort through the entire process and kept me well informed on what he was doing and what to expect. I was so impressed with my care I went home bragging about my dentist to friends and family :)Thank you Dr. Balkins and North Point Dental!!

Both my husband and I have been extremely satisfied with the service we have received from Dr. Balkins and Dr. Swensen, and all of their office staff. Friends recommended them to us saying they were especially good with people who have special health issues and need extra gentle care. We have found this to be true and have gone on to recommend them to our friends and relatives. We do not hesitate to recommend North Point Dental Group of Corvallis to anyone looking for good reliable dental care.

I've been gong here for years. I usually see the hygienist, Angie, and Dr. Templeman. They are great and do a careful, pain-free job. Friendly office staff, and accommodating in their scheduling, which I appreciate as I am a busy mom. My kids look forward to the "prize box". :-)

Dr. Templeman made a mouth guard for me because I'm a teeth grinder when I sleep. The thing I like about it is that it only covers the front two teeth so it's not an enormous piece in your mouth. Sort of like beaver teeth. Maybe he could color it black and orange. :-)

I have had several crown and a dental implant. Dr. Balkin and Dr. Swenson are great dentists and have made these procedures painless and as pleasent as possible. I would encourage anyone looking for a friendly, profesional staff to visit them.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
