With a passion for overall patient health and wellness, and an emphasis on the effect a person’s smile can have on self-esteem, Dr. Arlene Baluyut has spent 34 years building a dental practice with a sterling reputation. Signature Smiles Louisville, located at Brownsboro Road and Chamberlain Lane, is a comprehensive care dental practice with a preventive and proactive approach. Along with her passion and skill, her dental practices are equipped with advanced technology to provide the best possible dental care to her patients. General dentistry services include regular exams and cleanings, periodontal therapy, root canals and extractions. Their restorative dentistry services include resin fillings and same day crowns, TMJ treatments, dentures and dental implants. They also offer a full range of cosmetic dental services, such as Invisalign® braces, Ace Aligners™, porcelain veneers, Lumineers®, cosmetic bonding, and ZOOM teeth whitening.
Signature Smiles prides itself on being at the leading edge of the technological evolution of dentistry and oral health care. They have incorporated the CEREC® machine into their practices. This uses computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing technology for efficient but precise scanning and fabrication of crowns, bridges, or veneers the same day. Recently, they have added 3-D Computer Digital Radiography, along with their 2-D digital x-rays and Intraoral cameras, revolutionizing traditional dental imaging allowing for simultaneous viewing by the dentist and the patient. Dental imaging software produces previews and simulations of treatment options. These offices also offer the Waterlase MD™, a device which combines laser energy and water for less invasive yet more precise dental treatment.
Affectionately called “Dr. B” by her patients, Dr. Baluyut’s popularity has resulted in a fairly recent and significant expansion of her practices. Two dentists have joined the team to learn from Dr. Baluyut’s invaluable experience and secure the future of Signature Smiles in Louisville and Designing Smiles in Frankfort. After practicing in Georgetown and Lexington, Kentucky, Dr.James Devine joined the Signature Smiles dental team in September. He is from Charlotte, North Carolina, and graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. He has served on mission trips bringing dental care to underserved areas and populations. Dr. Daniel Skaggs practiced in Colorado Springs before joining the team in October. He graduated from LECOM School of Dental Medicine in Bradenton, Florida. He was honored with the Academy of General Dentistry Senior Student Award for highest aptitude in comprehensive dental patient care. All three dentists are members of several professional organizations.
Considering their impressive dental school achievements and admirable career ambitions, Dr. Baluyut states, “I am thrilled to bring these two young professionals on board. They fit well into our practices’ culture which puts patients and their needs first. Cultivating these relationships is what it’s all about.” Dr. B is originally from the Philippines and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry in 1985. She also served as the Chief Resident at the Chandler Medical Center in 1986-1987. As an undergraduate, she was a member of the Lady Wildcats basketball team and pays that opportunity forward by coaching youth basketball. Dr. B is also active in her church and various local civic and community organizations. Understandably proud of her highly skilled team of professionals, Dr. Baluyut continuously incorporates new technology to improve upon and expand their levels of expertise and patient care. She also maintains a second location, Designing Smiles, in Frankfort, Kentucky. All three Signature Smiles dentists serve both locations.
