Great experience! An onlay that I had done at another area dentist just a few days earlier came off on a Friday evening. Doing a quick search for dentists...

Originally came here to follow-up on some emergency work that I had done, to make sure everything was proper and long-lasting. They were able to squeeze me in, while Dr. Penrod was able to still provide great quality attention.

I recently came in here for both a cleaning as well as check-up on my permanent retainers. I arrived early, and they got me in sooner. Dr. Ballard was attentive, friendly, and informational. My x-ray tech, and hygienist Sarah were gentle and friendly as well. It felt like my teeth and gums were at the spa, it was so relaxing!

Definitely a new positive experience at a dentist's = I'll be coming back!

From the online scheduling process to the moment my service was complete it was perfectly clear that this operation was top notch. It took moments to schedule my appointment online. I was greeted with kindness the moment I walked in. Mar the hygenist was excellent. She explained every step that was taken during my visit. The dentist was also very cordial & detailed. She was able to dumb it down for me so I could understand exactly what I needed to know about future options/steps. The facility was extremely clean & comfortable. The staff worked together like a well oiled machine. Very happy that I chose Penrod as my new dental care provider!

So far, so good! Great location near the toll road in Rancho Santa Margarita in a medical plaza with plenty of free parking, Saturday hours as well as friendly (almost all the time, except on my recent visit when the dental assistant seemed to be busy and was somewhat dismissive) and knowledgeable dentists. Although they don't have a sink and faucet attached to dental chairs (like some others do), I was told it's because of health reasons, which makes sense (the water that they spray in your mouth with the handheld water sprayer seems more hygienic). Keep up the good work!
