Great for little kids. My daughter is 5 and she was crying in the dentist chair. The staff calmed her down and were able to perform a full exam.

I've enjoyed having about a dozen dentists in my life. I'm happy to say that most have impressed me. Without taking anything away from others, I simply have to honestly trumpet that Dr. Penrod is the best I've seen. It's no surprise that his staff, is a direct reflection of him. My congratulations to all of you for the level of professionalism, sincere care, and family culture that you've been able to establish in order to make my dental trips so positive.

I was very impressed! I'm a medical device engineer myself and haven't seen this type of advanced technology completely integrated under one roof. I not only had X-Ray's and a full panoramic scan of my entire mouth but during my operation an imaging system used multiple images of my teeth to form a complete 3D rendering. It was very reassuring to see it done correctly without possible human error.

The staff was very helpful in understanding my needs as well and put together a long term plan to best utilize my insurance.

I highly recommend this talented and advanced group of dentists. Thanks again!
