James Ballou, DDS
I was born and raised in Kansas City, the product of a loving family with Midwestern values and an appreciation for hard work. I am the oldest of 4 brothers and a sister. Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, playing with my dogs, traveling, lifting weights, jogging, snowboarding, surfing, golfing, listening to music, trying new restaurants, reading and staying active with church activities. I'm a huge fan of all sports, and my loyalty is with the crimson and blue Jayhawks of KU!
My dental training was completed at the University of Missouri Kansas City. After graduating with honors, I completed an orthodontic fellowship at the University of Florida followed by an orthodontic residency at the University of Missouri Kansas City. I was trained in the latest treatment methods, am a Preferred Provider for Invisalign and have been creating amazing smiles in Texas since 2010. I continue to provide my patients with the very best orthodontic treatment available through continuing education and membership in various professional organizations. I'm blessed to do what I love for a living...working together with patients, parents and team members to develop meaningful relationships while creating amazing before and after results in the process!
