What Our Clients Say:
We love hearing from you! Here are some of the awesome things our patients have said about us…
I couldn’t be more grateful for an amazing dentist. He cares so much about his patients. I have been with him for 8 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Even when he left Barrie, we followed him. He is extremely helpful, has a great sense of humour, and provides a very calming environment. His prices are great and when you are stuck, he helps you out. I highly recommend him and his staff. Thank you, Dr Penning, for all you do for my family.
It has been 10 years since Dr. Penning helped change my life, and I wanted to give him and his staff a big shout-out. My teeth were hideous, and I never smiled. The day it all changed seems like yesterday, it is so clear. I have since moved and my dentist and hygienist still comment on them. Thank you!
