Patient Testimonials

I needed a root canal and had been suffering for a week when referred to Dr. Penn. Her and her staff agreed to stay that very day and squeeze me in! I was so grateful to be without pain! I did need to make a return visit for Dr. Penn to complete the procedure, but it was well worth it!! I brought them flowers the next day and I was sent a thank you note for that jesture. Also received a thank you from everyone about being a good patient. I had never been treated so nicely before!!

Dr. Penn and her staff provided a wonderful time for what is ultimately a nerve racking procedure. I can compliment the reception and support staff to no end. As for the procedure itself, things were fast and gentle. You're in good hands here.

I was referred here by my dentist for a root canal. I came twice, 2 weeks apart to complete it, and each time EVERYONE was very friendly, and willing to help in any way. Dr Penn made sure that I was comfortable, (as you can be in this situation), and checked on me several times throughout each procedure. They called me the following day after each procedure to see how I was doing. They even sent me a Thank you card, signed by everyone in the office. Thumbs Up!

It was great! Staffs are very professional. It was a myth that root canal is painful but not at all, if your doctor is Dr Penn.

I went to Dr Penn having no idea what issues would be found as I was not in any pain. From the consultation to the final follow up of having stitches removed, I cannot say enough about how caring,, compassionate, friendly and truly the best Dr Penn, Jada, Taylor, Jessica and Donna are! I ended up Having a root canal which I was a bit scared about and they made me feel so relaxed and so at ease, I felt no pain. I also required oral surgery and they squeezed me in the same day. Again, no discomfort at all during or after. I cannot recommend this office enough! I am sorry I am moving away. I can’t thank them enough for all they have done for me and I would definitely recommend this office 100%
