Bryan’s experience has been nothing but positive for all his dental treatments, from getting dental implants, to tooth-colored fillings and porcelain crowns.

“In late 2010, after my wife and I quit smoking together and began trying to embrace a healthier lifestyle, we both agreed that I had been ignoring my dental health for far too long. Between smoking, poor home care, and a strong fear of dentists, my mouth was in pretty bad shape, and was beginning to give me pain.

“I was referred to Parker & Pennington by Dr. James Cherry, who performed dental surgery to place three implant screws and remove two wisdom teeth. He referred me to them because, in his words, ‘If you are going to have the work done, you should get it done right, and they do beautiful work.

“To that point, three things had kept me from going to the dentist: the fear of unknown expense, the fear that I would be judged for having let my dental health go, and the fear of the pain I associated with having any dental work done, forget multiple fillings and porcelain crowns.

“Parker & Pennington’s patient care advocate/evangelist took care of my first fear — she explained each procedure, the costs and helped me schedule the procedures so they made as light an impact on my healthcare budget as possible.

“On the issue of pain — I’ve had multiple fillings, crowns, polishes and various other procedures, and I can honestly say that I’ve felt more from ice cream headaches than anything Dr. Pennington has done for me. The man is an artist, and the only dentist I’ve had who can administer a needle without me noticing it happening.

“The experience I’ve had with Dr. Pennington and his entire staff has been uniformly positive from the first day. I show my teeth now when I smile, and I can honestly say that I look forward to going and seeing them twice a year.”

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.”

Dr. Pennington and everyone at this practice are talented, caring professionals. They go above & beyond to make sure you are comfortable and informed. They are great about booking appointments, sending reminders & submitting for insurance reimbursement. I am super happy with the crowns Dr. Pennington replaced and I was also super impressed with my regular check-up & cleaning as they took the time to show me images of my teeth & explain what was going on. I can’t recommend them highly enough!

Dentistry done the way it should be. Beautiful, clean office with nice lake views from every room. (it's fun to watch all of the wildlife out there) The Drs. Parker, Pennington and their team take the time to listen to our needs and get to know me and my family. Their skill level is exceptional, and they make the atmosphere friendly and inviting. You can tell that they enjoy working together and with us. I can't imagine having treatment anywhere else.

I was pleasantly impressed with my experience with Parker & Pennington Dentistry. The entire P&P team and Dr. Parker were very professional and friendly, and I knew right away that I was getting the best possible dental healthcare and service for my teeth. I felt no pain or stress the entire time and every tooth was examined meticulously with the most up-to date dental equipment and cutting-edge technology available. I loved the way my hygienist and doctor explained to me what was going on with my teeth and gums in real time by displaying a high quality 3d color scan of my teeth on their large monitors. if you are looking for complete dental health for your teeth and gums, I would highly recommend Parker & Pennington Dentistry and their wonderful professional team.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Pennington for about 6 years now at the Ponte Vedra location. He is a friendly, efficient and really, really good dentist. The best part is that he and Dr. Parker have brought together a great total team. You walk in the door and Sandi greets you with a welcoming smile, before you move to Karen, Jane or Danielle. They all understand going to the dentist can be a stressful situation, and they each work in a calming and considerate manner. I wish I could give more than 5 stars.
Absolutely love this practice and everyone who works there. Dr Parker is a perfectionist with a fun side.

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!”

— L.W.

“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.”
