Selma can now enjoy his favorite foods and improved health with implant-supported dentures.
“After 38 months without teeth, it was a great thing to be able to eat again. Dr. Parker is very down-to-earth. Thank all of you for the wonderful service you gave Phyllis and me. We enjoy coming here at any time.”
Mary is delighted with the way her new porcelain veneers improved her smile.
“This is to let you know that I am over the moon with my new veneers! Everyone at Parker and Pennington worked with me to give me a perfect new smile, and I am beyond pleased with the quality of a job well done. Dr. Parker and his staff not only do top quality work, but they also go out of their way to ensure the comfort of their patients. They have a warm and inviting atmosphere at their dental office along with doing the best dental work in Camden County! Thank you for a job well done!!”
An implant-supported partial denture helps Angela eat what she wants and feel good about smiling.
“Well, I just love Dr. Pennington and Dr. Parker. They have been super, helping me with all my dental problems, and they do such a beautiful job. They are so gentle.
“They did implants and added a partial denture, and changed my front crowns. Beautiful. Now I can eat and smile. Love it!”
Jeff appreciated our constant concern for his comfort during his full-mouth reconstruction and is now able to smile, eat his favorite foods and speak normally.
“Until Parker & Pennington, I was never comfortable with a dentist or their staff. There were visits where even a simple cleaning required me to take medication for anxiety. Not so with P & P.
“Drs. Parker and Pennington have great personalities and a true willingness to really work with a patient. They don’t just talk a good game; they have superb expertise. Although the treatment was intense and of long duration, every step was explained, and all costs were examined and approved. Whenever there was the least chance of me feeling distressed or anxious, it was addressed immediately.
“My professional work (providing training) required a great deal of talking, both in person and on camera. I was very self-conscious about the condition of my mouth, and it was worsening. It was a long process, but I should have had the work done a long time ago. I now have the confidence to smile, can eat my favorite foods and speak in a normal voice.”
Youngsters Kyla and Mason reported a pain-free cleaning, and their smiles look great.
“We were referred to Parker & Pennington and told they had the best reputation in the area. Our children, Mason and Kyla, had their teeth checked and cleaned. They reported that there was no pain and the staff was very nice. Their smiles look great.”
— Mason & Kyla
Stephanie, a patient for 15 years, enjoys the warmth of our team, and appreciates that we offer the latest dental technology to our patients.
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with both Dr. Parker and Dr. Pennington, and my experience with both has been exquisite. They are both warm, personable, and take the greatest pride in what they do. They have always communicated well about the treatments I needed, and they bring the latest dental technology to their patients. They’ve always exceeded my expectations for treatment, and both my husband and I have been patients for fifteen years.”
After root canal therapy, Jane is happy to have been shown ways to maintain her oral health at home.
“My first visit with Dr. Pennington’s office was around the Christmas holidays. I felt it was an emergency, and they were able to take me right in. Everyone in the office is so friendly, professional and thorough. They want to be sure they have taken care of my dental needs. I also like this practice because I feel they stay up-to-date on the latest technology. They have also shown me ways to take better care of my teeth and gums.”
Clara had missing teeth replaced with dental implants and now gets many compliments on her smile.
“I came in with discolored fillings and missing teeth. I received dental implants and crowns. Having a great smile is so important for my confidence, and I get many compliments on my smile, which makes me smile even more.
“The staff makes you feel like family, and I always look forward to my visits. They are very friendly and take great pride in their work. I don’t trust my smile to anyone other than Dr. Parker and Dr. Pennington. I would recommend them to anyone.”
Retired periodontist Dr. Ambrose compliments our exceptional dental practice and appreciates being treated in a gentle, caring manner.
“Dr. Parker and Dr. Pennington have an exceptional dental practice. They practice state-of-the-art care with state-of-the-art dental materials and equipment. The staff is exceptionally talented in fulfilling all the supporting roles needed for a smooth-running, patient-focused dental practice.
“I selected Drs. Parker and Pennington because during my years as a periodontist, I had a chance to see the consistent quality of dentistry they provide. The dental treatment I have received has been expertly performed in a gentle, caring fashion.”
— Dr. Mike Ambrose
Freddie appreciates being kept free from discomfort during all treatments, such as root canal therapy.
“I followed up on the recommendation I had received to Parker & Pennington Dentistry, on my first visit I was pleased with the staff and the cleaning. I felt confident meeting with Dr. Pennington and his appraisal of my teeth. He acknowledged that I needed to have old dental work replaced, and he watched things closely and spread the work out over the years.
“Dr. Pennington does beautiful work, and I have had good outcomes with everything he has done over the years. He is very careful to match colors when doing crowns, and I have no sensitive areas. I tend to get very tense during treatments, and Dr. Pennington and his staff are always concerned with whether I am experiencing any discomfort during the procedure. He has done fillings, some bonding, several crowns and a root canal.”
Patti is able to smile confidently again and no one even realizes she has a dental implant.
“Dr. Pennington was very welcoming, as was his staff. He reviewed my case, talked with me about the accident, how I had been treated and told me about what to do to fix my teeth. The expertise of the doctors and staff is evident. My teeth look fantastic, and no one knows that I have an implant without being told.
“The treatment that I received allows me to go back to normal and eat solid foods without challenges. I am able to smile confidently once again! I work in sales, and having a professional and confident demeanor is a must. Dr. Pennington helped me restore that.”
After his new veneers, Kyle can’t stop smiling.
“I can’t remember the last time I ‘Smiled.’ In fact, I am 29 years old and I have no recollection of smiling. I’ve made a conscious effort to not smile because of my teeth. It bothered me more than anything, and I didn’t think it would even be possible to do anything about my smile without dentures or some other extreme measure. Finally, after having countless social events to attend, I decided I would look into getting something done. Drs. Parker and Pennington came up in one of my search results and their office was highly recommended by their patient reviews.
“My first consultation was amazing, even before I ever made it to the Doctor’s chair. The staff was outstanding, professional – customer service at its best. Dr. Pennington consulted me on my options and was as excited as I was about my interest in cosmetic dentistry. He was eager to help me and said ‘we can do this!’ It was the first time a conversation with a dentist about my teeth ever ended with me having an option other than dentures, braces or an extreme procedure. Veneers were my option and they were priced well. It was a quick process with very few appointments.
“I couldn’t believe it. Just a few appointments later and I can`t stop smiling! Speaking with people feels so much better now that I`m no longer self-conscious about my teeth. I can’t believe people take smiling for granted. It’s something I’ve never been able to do and Dr. Parker and Dr. Pennington gave me my smile at nearly 30 years old. I wish I could have found them sooner. Other dentist discouraged me and gave me no realistic options. Drs. Parker and Pennington were just as excited as I was and treated me as if it were their teeth. Countless times throughout out my procedure they were so excited, I wasn’t sure if I was getting the new teeth or they were.
“I’m active duty in the military and after my procedure was complete I had to also be ‘checked out’ by the military dentist. Several dentists were called in to see my teeth and they could not believe I had veneers. They thought they had the wrong dental records for me. That was one of the defining moments for me. I can’t express my gratitude for what was given to me. I have so many smiles to make up for and have never felt better. Don’t wait any longer. Drs. Parker and Pennington can do for you what they did for me, give me the smile I wasn’t born with.”
Dental implants have helped many of our patients return their mouths and smiles to full health, function and beauty.
“Drs. Sid Parker and Jeff Pennington have been my dentists for more than 10 years. I had terrible teeth, unhealthy gums, sagging sinuses and deteriorated bone. It would take some time to achieve a healthy mouth filled with dental implants.
While most patients have a file documenting their dental history, I have a box of history containing everything from temporary devices used between surgeries, to later repairs, to adjustments correcting an extra powerful ability to gnash very hard. One time, I broke a titanium plate.
Prior to becoming a Parker/ Pennington patient, I was afraid of the dentist and was poorly treated by more than one in the military and in the community later. I feel at home in either the St Marys or Jacksonville Beach office. They make me feel like an old friend.
I should place an ad in the paper to tell others what they are missing. ‘Friendly, courteous service, a real concern for the patient’s well-being and a sincere interest in my satisfaction.’
Did I mention they know what they are doing? Both continue their education, often traveling hundreds of miles to exchange ideas with other experts in the dental surgery.
I must also add that having a great smile and great teeth changed my introverted life. Since the surgeries, I have been active in the community and at ease with speaking in front of groups. I attribute much of this turnaround to Sid and Jeff. The story stops here because I have not the words to express my gratitude for all these cousins have done to improve my life.”
“My first visit to Dr. Pennington’s office was in December of 2012. I needed two teeth removed, a bone graft, and an implant placed. Dr. Pennington was amazing to say the least. The first thing I noticed is there was never a wait; I was always taken back right away.
“The front desk staff, Dee and Stephanie, was amazing as well. Stacy, Dr. Pennington’s assistant is very nice and always attentive. Dr. Pennington gave me a couple of options and let me make the choice according to these options. I was never pressured into making a decision that I really liked.
“When it came time to have the procedure done, Dr. Pennington and his staff made me feel very comfortable and I felt no pain at all. I want to say: ‘Thank you to Dr. Pennington and his staff.’ This is the best doctor’s office I can ever remember going to and even though I am not finished with the work yet, I am very pleased with the outcome so far.”
“Adjusting my bite has helped so much. That was so huge; I have no more discomfort! Wow, you can’t even tell they are implant teeth. It was worth the wait. I would do it all over again. Thank you for explaining everything so clearly to me!”
“Both my husband and I have been patients of Drs. Parker and Pennington for quite a while now, and have been extremely satisfied with the service and care we have received from their practice. We’ve had crowns, fillings, implants, overlays, cleanings, x-rays, and probably some other procedures done that I can’t recall, and all work was excellent, and as painless as possible.
“The doctors and staff go to great lengths to make you comfortable and to treat you like a cherished friend. The billing folks take care of filing insurance claims for you, and the receptionist calls with appointment reminders.
“The waiting room is never crowded – you don’t get the feeling that you’re part of a production line. Also, not only do the dentists take the time to educate you and discuss your treatment with you, they also listen to what you have to say. There are no surprises!
“This dental practice was recommended to me by a co-worker who was thrilled with the results of her dental work, and both of us recommend Parker and Pennington to anyone who asks us about our dentists. Simply put, these folks ARE the BEST. ”
Our patients enjoy a better quality of life with dentures that aren’t painful, don’t slip, and allow them to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
“I came to this office in such pain due to poorly fitting dentures. The office staff was amazing. Meeting Dr. Parker and Stacy sold me on obtaining new dentures. I was a little skeptical about spending more money on a new set of dentures, but after two months of waiting and putting in the new dentures I could not be anymore thrilled.
My face and smile are back. Now about Stacy and Dr. Parker, I felt like I was at home with them. They are extremely wonderful people. I am coming back for implants due to the way Stacy and Dr. Parker handled the whole procedure. I felt like I was their only patient. I definitely recommend this office for all dental care.”
“I really love my new teeth. I can eat anything I want. My family took me to the Melting Pot for my birthday and it was so nice to be able to eat. Dr. Parker and Stacy did a great job. I love to smile now and my dentures feel like real teeth.”
“CDR Val J. Jensen, my husband, returned from his second deployment to Iraq with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable) in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Shortly thereafter, we were told I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. After surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and continued medication, I am now a six-year survivor. The side effects from the illness, treatment and complications may cause problems with the patient’s oral health such as infection, decay, abscesses and breakage. Those experiences happened to me.
“We were very pleased with the wonderful work Dr. Parker and Dr. Pennington did in my husband’s case. When we talked with Dr. Parker, he recommended that it would be best for my health to remove all remaining teeth and immediately replace them with dentures made by him. Dr. Diane Pennington performed the oral surgery that included four implants, and Dr. Parker came to her office to place the upper and lower dentures immediately after the extractions. Three weeks later, my husband and I are so pleased with my smile and the appearance of my new teeth! Everyone is amazed at the natural look. Thank you, Dr. Parker, for your expertise which has made such a positive difference.”
“First of all, Dr. Parker tries not to be judgmental. He truly understands the genetics of patients and loves the challenges. He’s one of those rare dentists who don’t settle for 89% or even 98%. His standards lean towards your standards. He demands excellence from himself. I have felt like I have known him for a very long time.
“I have enjoyed his chair side demeanor, his wit, and sense of humor. His respect for you as a human, caring, and time has gone a long way. But, yet being professional. He seems to ‘steer’ away from the ‘cattle call’ waiting room theory. This tells me he values and respects you as patient.
“Patience is the key for ‘custom dentures.’ My adventure has been a great one. My family has seen me go from a ‘low’ to an all-time high. My biggest thrill is to ‘crunch’ loud to and irritate the grandchildren. No more sitting on the sideline. I look forward to each day. And when your husband tells you that you look ten years younger. Then you can only give the credit to Dr. Parker.”
“I went to three different dental offices to have a lower denture made and could not eat with any of them until I found your office. Implants are a wonderful thing. You guys are great!”
“My dentures fit great and I can eat anything I want and do not have any pain anymore. I also find that I am never sick anymore.”
“Sorry I didn’t return your call. Too busy trying out my new choppers. Just wanted to say that I just cleaned an ear of corn-on-the-cob with high efficiency. Last week I ate an apple to the core without slicing it into pieces and beef jerky is no longer a challenge. I could not be happier with the work you guys have done, and you may use me as a reference to any patient considering a mouth full of dental implants.
“You can be very proud of your craftsmanship, and I will be happy to tell any prospective patient of yours that the time investment is well worth the wait. Absolutely no one can tell I have new dental work before I tell them, often days later. Would you believe a woman was making a pitch for teeth whitening to me at a fall festival? When I showed them to her and told her they weren’t real she acted like she didn’t believe me. She said they looked great, and it only looked like I must have worn braces when I was younger. Thank you Jeff, Tom, Sid and the Atlanta gent in the lab. I owe you more than I can ever repay.
“I love my new set of dentures. They are very pretty. I eat better and feel much better about myself, so thank you again.”
“With my new dentures, I am able to chew my food as well as a food blender. My old dentures would just mash my food together and I would swallow my food in big chunks. I can speak so much better! I can now pronounce words that were quite difficult for me such as –philanthropy, successful, normally, and many others words I can’t recall at the moment. I can now move my tongue and my jaw in any position, and I am not concerned about my lower dentures flipping up.
“I wish there was someone like Dr. Parker around when I had all my teeth extracted 50 years ago. I am sure it would not have been so traumatic! I love the way my lower dentures feel in my mouth. They fit so well, and I feel like they are my natural teeth.”
“My experience with all the work I have had done including the implants and veneers has been phenomenal. Having all the work done has made a difference in how I look at myself as well as how others look at me. I feel very confident!”
“In the past, my younger daughter has previously been terrified of having any one clean her teeth, but after her first office visit at Parker and Pennington Dentistry she remains very positive, her fear and anxiety has been released from her just by having your staff talk to her as a real person and explaining what is happening.
“It feels like one of those commercials:
$5 for candy
$20 for Parking
Watching your child’s expressions while she’s in the Dental Chair: Priceless. I’ve never seen her more happy as she say’s ‘This is the only dentist I ever want to go to. Thank you.”
“Sid, I can’t thank you enough for all the time and energy you’ve spent on making my mouth perfect. You are such a great professional and have mastered your craft to such a high level. I feel so fortunate to have you for a dentist and for such a caring friend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing such an incredibly great job.”
“I have never been to a dentist office like this one, and I have been to a lot. Everyone there goes out of the way to make you feel important and at home! They even follow up to check on how you are doing the day after.
“I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pennington to anyone, if you want the best care possible. I have always been scared of going to the dentist but not anymore, as long as I go to them. The travel there (not in my town) is worth it! Thank you Dr. Pennington and staff for the great service!”
“You made me like my smile again! I can’t thank you enough. It’s all in the details, and Dr. Pennington really keys in on those. He looked at everything and made small tweaks that make a HUGE difference in how natural my teeth look. I didn’t realize how much that space bothered me. Now, I love everything about my smile. I don’t love going to the dentist, but I LOVE coming here, because I know what it gets me. I won’t go anywhere else.”
“I was very pleased with Dr. Parker and his sweet assistant. He was very caring. He cared about me and about my feelings. His new name is ‘Dr. Precious.’ I will most definitely be back. He has very gentle hands. I am a big baby, and he made me feel at home. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
