Yet another great experience at Penrod Dental Care! Had a cleaning and they discovered a very tiny cavity. Dr. Ballard took care of it quickly and gently and I was out of the office in less than half an hour! The entire staff is always friendly and efficient - it's a very welcoming environment. That's why hubby and I wouldn't even consider going to another dental office. If you are looking for great dentists and friendly, professional service this is definitely the place!

I LOVE Penrod Dental! I came in with a chipped tooth and they fixed it like miracle workers! I was very worried but they put my mind at ease and told me everything they were doing which helped me to stay calm. My tooth looks better than before the chip! I recommend Penrod to everyone!
