Dr. Robert Balsmeier

Associate Phoenix and Scottsdale Pediatric Dentist

Growing up in a military family and serving in the United States Air Force himself, Dr. Balsmeier or “Dr. B” as his patients call him, has lived all over the country before calling Scottsdale, Arizona his home.



His education led him to the mountains of southeastern Idaho, where he studied zoology at Idaho State University. From there, he moved to the Midwest, where he attended Creighton University School of Dentistry and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2008. During his time at Creighton, he discovered his passion was pediatric dentistry. Immediately following dental school, he moved to the Great Lakes region and completed his two-year residency in Pediatric Dentistry at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, one of the top programs in the country.
