Dr. Ballard is a dentist currently practicing at Ballard Dentistry in Maspeth, New York alongside Mark Schaefer DDS. Dr Ballard is affiliated with Flushing Hospital. She has graduated with her Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree from the LECOM School of Dental Medicine in 2018.

To earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree, students generally need a four-year undergraduate education. Afterward, they go to dental school for another four years of educational, clinical and dental laboratory training. After graduating with a Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree, dentists have to pass rigorous examinations. In the United States, dentists must pass the National Board Dental Examinations, which is a national written exam. They also have to pass a state exam to be licensed to practice there. With such extensive education and examination requirements, patients can rest assured that any dentist with a Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree is well qualified.

General dentists provide a wide array of services that are vital to patients’ continued health. These services include preventive services, including helping to maintain good oral health by stopping disease before it takes hold in the mouth; restorative services, such as receiving timely and appropriate treatment when a problem is identified; as well as cosmetic services, including performing a range of cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening, Invisalign, cosmetic bonding, and even porcelain veneers. General dentists also address overall health concerns as oral health is seen as the mirror of general health. In fact, some dental problems may reflect issues in other parts of the body and vice versa.
