Dr. John R. Biancalana
Dr. John R. Biancalana received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1982, graduating with honors. This gives him over 30 years of experience caring for his patients. He made the decision to become a Dentist because he always felt a passion for helping others feel great about themselves. Dr. B still works out of this passion and strives to have all his patients feel as comfortable and confident as possible.

Dr. B feels that providing the best care for his patients includes educating them regarding their dental health as more knowledge gives them control and power to make the best decision for their health.

Dr. B resides in Clanton with his family. He is just as passionate and driven in his personal life and is heavily involved in the lives of his 4 children. They moved here from Chicago to escape the snow and hectic pace of big city life. Prattville and the surrounding areas provide outdoor sports and the slower pace that allows them to enjoy time together.

Bianca continues her education to ensure that she can educate her patients and provide them with gentle, professional care.

She is very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of dental insurance and is always more than happy to help our patients utilize their benefits to the fullest.


Karli, Dental Assistant

Karli joined our Southern Comfort Dental team in 2011. We actively recruited Karli because she had shown, over the years of being a patient, that she was extremely friendly, intelligent, and driven to excel in all of life. Although young in age, she had already worked in the public for many years prior to graduating high school. These characteristics we feel cannot be taught but are a part of who a person is.

Karli has a smile for everyone she encounters, a truly bubbly disposition, and makes everyone around her feel uplifted.

Kathy takes great pride in presenting our patients with all the facts of their dental needs and works tirelessly to accommodate their financial situations by offering numerous payment plans. Kathy makes herself available to our patients to answer any question they may have regarding finances.
