Maria - Office Manager

I grew up in southeastern Alaska and then Port Townsend, WA. I’m happily married and a proud mother of two children. I’m honored to have been working at Hadlock Dental Center…Go to our homepage for more information… for more than 33 years, and I am deeply grateful to be surrounded by so many wonderful people.

At the age of 16, I had my first experience in the dental world working in a periodontics/orthodontics office. I was fascinated because I truly enjoyed helping people. Nowadays, being a dental office manager has allowed me to do so in a gratifying way.

Interesting Fact:

My spirit animal is a ladybug. I feel they bring good luck.

Shannon - Hygiene Coordinator

I’ve lived in Washington State my whole life, and I’m happy to call the Peninsula my home. After spending many years in the medical field, I decided to make a change and immerse myself in dentistry. I never realized how different it would be, but I couldn’t be happier!

My lighthearted, compassionate personality allows me to connect with our patients in a personal way. The best part of my job is interacting with them and knowing I’m helping my community receive excellent dental care.

Interesting Fact:

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family. I like to go fishing, hiking, camping, or biking.

Jami - Dental Hygienist

I am originally from Kansas but now live in Washington State. As a kid, I fell in love with dentistry, and it remains my major passion!

I was drawn to this field because of the real changes I can make in a person’s life. I not only get to educate them about oral health or help them fight gum disease, but I can also make them smile with confidence.

I pride myself on being a great listener, and I want all of my patients to feel comfortable every time they come for an appointment.

Interesting Fact:

My grandmother is my hero. I look to her for strength when times are rough.

I grew up in Kingston, and have two beautiful dogs, McKinley and Dung. I chose dentistry because it combined my two favorite things, helping people and working in healthcare.

I decided to go to hygiene school in Flagstaff, AZ, and I worked in the Navajo reservation as a hygienist for more than six years. Now, I have made Hadlock Dental Center…Learn more about our office… my new home!

I have a friendly personality, and I’ll always go above and beyond to make my patients feel welcomed at our practice.

Interesting Fact:

My spirit animal is my dog, McKinley. We’re always up for an adventure and love a good Mexican dish.

Melanie - Dental Assistant

Born and raised in Washington, I’m married with a dog and a cat. I first became interested in dentistry after having orthognathic (jaw corrective) surgery.

Today, more than 14 years later, I’m still as fascinated as when I first started.

I love animals and one day I hope to spend time rescuing older dogs.

Lovely facility with great people. I've been going to Ginny (Virginia) for years and she is always warm, conscientious, and professional. I love going to her for my cleanings. I had more extensive work done today by Melissa and Dr. Eggert and they were frequently checking to see that I was comfortable as well as informed about what they were doing each step of the way. They each have a gentle touch and did beautiful work.

I'm always wary after a lifetime of extensive dental work with a new dentist but they have proven themselves at Ballard Dental Arts to be top-notch! And, as they know, I'm picky! Dr. Tobler and all of his staff members have demonstrated their expertise, professionalism, passion and talent for their vocation over a of time. I would absolutely recommend their services for all your family and individual needs!

Going to the dentist is NOT something people look forward to! But the team here is so delightful and really makes it a better experience. Siri is the best hygienist and is so sweet - she makes this chore no one looks forward to actually enjoyable. The front desk staff is always friendly and helpful and Dr Tobler is such a patient, nice doctor. I can’t recommend this practice enough!

Melissa helped make my appointment stress free and comfortable. They were even kind enough to offer me a Bluetooth headset during my visit! Overall, this dentist office offers treatment in a way that is both kind and transparent.

Have been very pleased with Ballard Dental Arts. I'm happy that Ginny has been my Dental Hygienist for many years & I've found Dr. Tobler - who acquired the practice relatively recently - to be thorough, knowledgeable, attentive and congenial.

I honestly look forward to my twice yearly dental appointments. I have been visiting Ballard Dental Arts for a few years and have had a consistently positive experience, even when that experience involved cavities and fillings. Dr. Tobler instantly puts you at ease. He is skilled, trustworthy, and patient to explain each step and option. I've definitely had dentists in the past who left me in the dark while they worked on my teeth, but Dr. Tobler goes out of his way to answer every question, sometimes before you even think to ask.The cherry on the cake is the amazing hygienist Jenni. Not only does she take excellent care of your teeth, but check-ups with her are like visiting with a friend you haven't seen in 6 months. She is pure gold. You may forget you're having your teeth cleaned.

After 4 appointments I still don't have a single complaint. Everyone at the office has been wonderful to deal with and very accommodating. Dr Eggert and Melissa did a great job of keeping me comfortable during a procedure, Ginny was a treat for cleanings. Can't recommend enough.

I have been going to BDA since they opened in Ballard and have always received top notch service. From the smile that greets me upon arrival to the knowledgeable and careful staff, all the way until I walk out the door post op, it truly is a smooth and actually enjoyable process. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for ANY dental needs. I truly am impressed with my most recent visit to get a filling and Zoom Whitening. Melissa G is a saint. She made sure I was comfortable at all times, educated me on what to expect pre and post op, and really just made me feel welcome which is HUGE when going to a dentist and having tools in your mouth. THANK YOU Melissa and team BDA 🙂

It is truly comforting to know you have a professional, personal dentist who actually cares about your health. People without a dentist can have a lot of problems, but with Ballard Dental Arts all your fears are laid to rest. My first procedure this week involved #31, a fractured tooth that would have only gotten worse had I ignored it. Dr. Eggert, Melissa, and the other assistants, are truly helpful and friendly. Very important to my dental care is anesthesia, and I chose Ballard Dental Arts because they use Nitrous, which makes the procedures for me to go a lot smoother. I am not at all concerned about over-hyped dangers of N20, so that part of my dental care is crucial to me.Billing is also very gracious, as they know a full crown can cost over $1,000 which is necessary to pay, or else the tooth gets infected, which can lead to an abscess or much worse. They allow self-pay patients like me, who knows how practically worthless are the dental plans in this state, 90 days same as cash. If not for that, I would have had to postpone my care and put my health at risk. Thank you, Ballard Dental Arts, for truly caring. No, they did not pay me or egg me on to write this review, it's just something that I do anyway for the truly deserving businesses out there. Totally recommended.Best way to get here and avoid the very heavy Ballard traffic is to go over to 17th Ave. NW, and then turn eastbound onto NW 58th street to the end of the block, and they have a parking lot on the north side behind the building, which is actually the main entrance.

I love this place, it had been a while sense I had been to the dentist so I was a bit hesitant to go but once I got there they made me feel right at home. I didn't feel judged and was treated with the up most respect. I would highly recommend them, and staff are all very friendly.

I just got my teeth cleaned and polished and I had probably the best dental experience of my life. Last time 6 months ago I had Jenni work on my teeth and she is the first person to ever get me motivated to floss and buy and use a night guard. It clearly paid off because I had great results to show for my work this appointment. Jenni is extremely educational and I felt cared about here as opposed talked down to like I have other places. I have had nothing but amazing experiences since coming here and will continue to receive my dental work from people I trust. Thanks guys!!

Been a patient here for about a year, I really like the staff, everyone is very calm and patient with scaredy-cats like me. Just now sitting in the waiting room, I’m listening to Allison handle the phones very calmly and professionally with such a sweet temperament. You’ll like this place.

I started going to Ballard Dental Arts based on a friend's referral, and I'm so glad I did. It is clean, bright and airy, the front desk staff are kind and extremely helpful, and I love my hygienist. Even after I moved out of Ballard I kept going because of how great they are. Can't say enough good things.
