Dr. Katie Ball
Dr. Katie Ball loves what she does. Believe it or not, a childhood fear of the dentist fueled her lifelong passion to someday ease people in her own dental chair. That's how caring she is.
In her eyes, a beautiful smile is a healthy smile. She has a sterling reputation for ensuring utmost comfort for all patients, which stems from her past experience of providing dental care exclusively to children. Down to earth and kind, Dr. Katie always takes her time with patients (especially anxious ones) to ensure they're relaxed and informed about their dental health treatments. She educates her patients of all their options, so that her patients are involved in coming up with the best plan for them.
After growing up in the Portland area, Dr. Katie went to dental school at Boston University. Dr. Katie's advocacy for accessible dental health has led to several philanthropic mission trips, where she's provided services in Mexico, Brazil, Dominican Republic, and Honduras. She also developed the Socialite Teeth Whitening System, a product near and dear to her heart that makes at-home teeth whitening a breeze for her patients.
In addition to her many hours at Bling Dental, Dr. Katie is an avid member of the Sunset Study Club, Portland Implant Study Club, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Northwest Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry and Spear Faculty Club. An academic (and overachiever!) to the core, Dr. Katie keeps her brain active by racking up hours in continuing education. In her off time, you can find her rooting for the Trailblazers, Seahawks, and Red Sox while planning her next big trip to the beach.
