Dr. Eric Ballou has become a partner at Lake Harbor Dental in Boise, now equally sharing the practice with Dr. Michael Peterson.

Ballou, who began working at Lake Harbor in 2008, graduated from the Virginia Commonwealth School of Dentistry and frequently donates his time to charities, most recently traveling to the Dominican Republic with a group of dentists to help people there.
