We accept most insurance plans and work hard to maximize your insurance benefits! No insurance? We offer an individual monthly payment plan to help you get the smile you want at a cost that works for you.
Years of experience and continuing education help Dr. Penrod and his staff provide state-of-the-art procedures and comfort. Most importantly, we listen to you and explain all your options before proceeding with any treatment.
We know that you can’t always make it in to see the dentist from 9-5, so we’re open from 7 to 7 most weekdays so you can come in before or after work and school. We even have Saturday appointments available!
Penrod Dental Care provides comprehensive dentistry for your whole family—from complex cosmetic cases to routine dental needs like checkups, cleanings, preventative care, fillings and crowns.

First exceptional dentist experience I’ve ever had. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Knowledgeable, professional, & kind. Best and most thorough cleaning I have had in a long time! Took me a while to find a dentist I really like and trust. They didn’t try to up-sell me on anything unnecessary or shame me for not flossing etc. they genuinely care about their patients. And just overall wonderful!! Thank you
My recent visit with Dr Ballard at Penrod Dental Care was wonderful (I know it sounds weird to call it “wonderful”—but it was seriously so much better than the many dentists I’ve been to!)
I’ve needed to replace two crowns for about 10 years and have dreaded the day (and the pain!) that I would go through at the dentist. I finally gave in since my Delta Dental insurance is expiring and I didn’t want to pay for all of it.
The staff was very friendly and reassuring (I was very anxious!) and I was shocked to find that even when they were numbing the area there was no pain from the shot (going in or after!). Very unlike many dentists I’ve been to where pain is the norm. And there was no pain during the treatment.
15 minutes into the removal of the crowns I expected I’d have to brace for another 20-30 minutes of cavity removing pain, but to my surprise, Dr Ballard had already cleaned out the cavities! All that was left was for them to put in a temporary and send me on my way.
Especially for treatment, these dentists know what they’re doing and how to make it painless. Thank you for the help!!
The greatest dental office in the world. I’ve had trouble finding a dentist that I trust, and I now know that my search is over. Finding a good dentist is like a mechanic. Some will try to raise your bill by charging you for things you don’t need, and others will be compassionate and truly give you the absolute best care for the best price. Penrod Dental Care is the latter. They are kind, considerate, and very intelligent. I plan on coming here for as long as I can.
