It was a long haul covering extensive dental work. Dr. King is amazing ~ I could not have asked for more care and kindness. And of course, those that make up the rest of the Penrod group are also great to deal with. If you're looking for a great group of people to help with anything to do with your dental needs, please give them a call. You will not be sorry ~

I had previously had a very bad experience with a different dentist when I got my wisdom teeth pulled, and I hadn't been to the dentist for more than two years after that. That same dentist I found had really messed up a crown, and it fell out after just two years. I decided to go to Dr. Ballard, because I used to work with her husband and I've known many co-workers and friends that have had amazing results and experiences. As soon as I arrived, the woman at the Front Desk, Clea, was incredibly warm and comforting and was very assuring. I filled out my paperwork and nearly no wait before I was called back. The dental assistant was very nice and calming while she did my X-Rays and initial consultation. And then Dr. Ballard was simply magnificent. She was so calming, and talked to me the entire procedure. The entire experience was really amazing, and I am so glad that I went to this place. It's a tad more expensive than some of the other dentists out there, but you really get what you pay for (they even gave me the option to watch TV while they did the procedure!) Incredibly classy establishment, outstanding staff, and amazing service!! Highly recommend to anyone needing dental work!!

I would prefer to deliver a fourth child rather than go to the dentist. It freaks me out!
Penrod dental has calmed my nerves from the moment I walk in with the most kind, patient and helpful office staff to the back office, gentle hygienists and caring doctors.
I will go nowhere else.
