Patient Testimonials

I first went here back in December (I think?) for a root canal treatment. Due to my pregnancy, I was unable to get the procedure done. Nonetheless, the staff worked with me and called to check in on me every couple months. Finally after I had my baby, they booked my root canal treatment the following week after I called them. I have never had a root canal so I had a lot of anxiety about it. However, Dr. Penn and her staff made me feel so comfortable. I'm sorry I'm forgetting the dental assistants name (I think that's the job title?), but she was great. Very personable. The front staff was also very warm and welcoming. The root canal treatment went very well. The same day I wasn't in pain. It is now day 3 after the treatment and I'm feeling great! Thank you Dr. Penn and staff 10/10

Nobody likes going to the dentist but I have to say my visit with Dr. Penn and staff was one of the better visits to the dentist. From the time I arrived the staff made me feel so welcome and were very professional. I was in pain and required surgery for a tooth infection. The surgery went very well. The surgery required stitches and I was a little sore from the shots. The best part was after leaving Dr. Penn's office the pain was gone. I didn't even require any pain meds and was back to eating normally the next day. So to Dr. Penn and staff,thank you so much. Joseph Nelson

From the moment you enter the office, you are made to feel like you are family. The way you are treated by everyone is over and above what one should expect, and every step of the process is explained in detail. I also appreciate the follow-up calls. Dr. Penn and her staff are the best.

I was referred to Dr. Penn after needing a root canal ASAP. I was fit in the schedule right away and was extremely nervous w/ it being my 1st root canal. Dr. Penn and her staff were amazing!! Everyone was so incredibly helpful, patient and very detailed when it came to explaining the costs, procedure and care after. I truly felt like everyone cared and wanted me to go home comfortable. During the whole procedure they would periodically stop to give me a break and see if I was okay. After all was done Dr. Penn again made sure to check if I was okay and advised me to take the NSAIDS they provided so I would have no pain when I got home. They provided a yummy drink to help my stomach tolerate the meds. I was checked on a day later and advised to follow the instructions given to me for a specific amount of days to avoid any pain. I had a tiny amount of pain the next day which was predicted but otherwise nothing. I highly recommend Dr. Penn and her staff if you enjoy great and professional service.

I went into see dr. Penn in regards to my tooth hurting badly. She let me knowni needed to get a root canal, so i proceeded to get it done, and honestly her staff as well as herself were so amazing, made me feel comfortable, and i actually almost fell asleep during my rootcanal, did not hurt what so ever. She even made sure the tooth was fully covered before sending me out back to my original dentsit so i can get my crown on. I have to say this has been the best experience i have had in the densitry world. Such amazing group of people and i would definitely refer them to any1 that has dental issues.
