Ratings for Dr. Harry Penner
Nice personality, but staff did not check my ins. coverage well enough, and I ended up paying thousands out of pocket! Lots of upselling as well-makes you feel they're "in it for the money" - not a good feeling. Some fillings caused chronic on and off pain over the years. Molar filling that I was told will last for "about as long as a crown", lasted 4.5 years. There's usually a 3-5 month waiting list. I once had my appointment cancelled by them after waiting for months. On the plus side, there's one hygenist (in her 40s) who is the best I've ever had at removing hard plaque from teeth.
Dr Penner has been treating our family for approximately 15 years with great success. He is probably the best with smile creation through crowning I know. He tends to over bill the Alberta Blue Cross guide but quality and confidence is worth a little extra. He also refers to the best in Alberta for gum and root canal work. He could use another dentist to assist his load and flow through his holidays times. His dental techs are also first rate, very skilled and personable. He was also very pain free for our Children through the "Fear Years".
Dr. Penner has been my dentist since I was a child. I too now take my children there. Not only is he a great dentist but his staff is wonderful and many have been there since I started going. I love that their office closes during holidays as well as school holidays. The office is about family. I often recommend him and his staff.
I have dealt with Dr. Penner since I was a young child. (has been over 20 years now). Now I take my own children to him. He is a great dentist, very good with kids. He is informative, and friendly. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist
Dr. Penner does not inform patient of options and procedures. He does a procedure that is not effective, charges accordingly, and within a few weeks, patient needs major work done, another billing as well as charges for emergency visit, etc. Would not recommend this dentist even to my mother-in-law.
