I like the wide range of opportunities that general dentistry has to offer in our group setting. I find it very enjoyable to interact daily with my patients and to collaborate with my colleagues, as I love to take care of people. I understand the importance of dental health, and find joy in helping people better understand how to take care of themselves and try and do it all with a little humor!  Away from dentistry, I enjoy playing softball, running, yoga, traveling, and trying out new restaurants.

The dental care you deserve is waiting for you at a nearby Park Dental.

Dr Belford was super nice and made me feel very comfortable. She definitely explained all the details and eased my anxiety about dental treatment.

I have never been so impressed by a dentist as I was with Dr. Anne Balfour. She really talked to me and listened. She asked if I had questions - which they all do - and at first, I didn't', but she gave me more info anyway and then I did have questions. I had a very bizarre pain and everything checked out fine but she didn't give up on figuring out what was wrong. When the first endodontist didn't help, she sent me to a 2nd one. I know I would still be suffering if she wasn't so diligent.

Dr. Balfour came in part way through the hygienist part and asked if she could do her part then as she had some other patients. She sat down, looked me in the eye to great me, did a quick exam and said, "what questions do you have?" I said "none", she then asked again, "what questions do you have?". I did have one!!! Way to deal with the Minnesota personality who the first answer is always "no" and get to the question. She was in a rush, but it didn't feel like she rushed me. I love this dentist!!!!

Dr. Balfour is a genius dentist for a number of reasons: Her bedside manner is complete appropriate, caring, and funny, hey level of skill in dentistry is the best I have encountered, she is innovative in her thinking and a great problem solver, she is a perfectionist in her work ethic, and she is a warm and caring person. To find these qualities in one person/professional is rare indeed.

I have moved to several places in the United States and have never had a dentist as great as Dr. Balfour. She has always been kind, treated me with respect, and doesn't push treatment on me when it isn't necessary. I have had previous dentists that would drill every tiny little thing and Dr. Balfour has the right balance of watching a spot versus needing to have some work done. I've also had previous dentists that would scold or talk negatively, and that has never been the case with Dr. Balfour or my hygienists. I leave feeling listened to and well taken care of.

I was extremely impressed by the care provided by the dental tech and Dr. Balfour. They are both very valuable assets of your organization and I hope are treated as such. My opinion regarding the competency and level of care provided by these practitioners can be evidenced by the fact that I am willing to drive 160 miles one way to access their care and treatment

Dr. Balfour is excellent. She is professional, yet personable. She takes the time to chat just a little which makes a trip to the dentist a little more palatable. She discusses treatment options and doesn't rush me into extreme treatment, first opting to try more basic treatment. When I first started seeing Dr. Balfour, she was a couple-minute drive from my place of work. Four years ago, my office moved to the other side of the metro. Instead of switching to an office that would be conveniently located, I have chosen to drive the extra miles and take the extra time to get up to Minnetonka.
