‘‘Providing you an extraordinary experience is important to us. We want you and your family to be happy with your smile and actually enjoy coming in to see us."

Dr. Balutowicz always knew she wanted to operate her own practice and spent several years looking for the right one. She wanted to purchase a practice from a dentist with whom she shared a similar philosophy and passion for providing high-quality dental care and exceptional patient experiences.

Dr. Balutowicz officially took over the KB Dental practice in April 2016 and strives to maintain the comfortable and professional environment that Dr. Wittkowski first created.

Every day, she aims to create a unique dental experience for her patients by taking a you-centered, boutique approach.
