Freedom From Judgement

“Do not judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes.”

Dr. Balsly was raised in Cincinnati with a Catholic influence in his upbringing.  While he strives to live and practice by a core set of values developed throughout his life, all religions and backgrounds are encouraged and valued at Trailside Dental Care.

Trailside Dental Care also recognizes it does not make you a bad person if you neglect your dental or medical health, whether it has been 5 years or a lifetime.  We have many patients who come to us after neglecting their mouth for many years, and you will often hear Dr. Balsly say, “There is nothing we can do about the past but learn from it.  The important thing now is fixing your current issues and preventing issues from happening again in the future.

Honesty. Integrity. Reliability.


“I may not tell you what you want to hear, but I will tell you what you need to hear”

Around 30 years ago, dentists were more trusted than physicians.  Sadly, this is no longer the case.  Corporate dentistry and many foreign dentists have created a situation where patients have seen dental practices who value profits more than the treatment and well-being of their patients.  Core values that were once held by most dentists have now become less common and harder to find in the dental industry.


If nothing else separates our practice from others, it is that we operate in a sincere and truthful manner, ensuring those core values remain an integral part of our practice.



“Do unto others as you would have done onto you”.

Integrity is one of the core values at Trailside Dental Care.  We give our best efforts to treat you as we would want to be treated, and we hope you have this same outlook.  Conducting ourselves with a core set of values will always take precedence over other priorities.



“Your bound is your word”

Dental procedures have varying degrees of success.  No one can guarantee the success of all treatment, but we can give you realistic advice on what to expect while you are making treatment decisions.  At Trailside Dental Care, we strive to use the best materials and systems to create consistent and optimal treatment results.
