  • Dr. Joshua Pennington

    Dr. Joshua Pennington received his Doctor of Dental Medicine from Midwestern University-Arizona in 2020. He is an active accredited member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

    He is excited to return to his home roots in Virginia where he can service the community. Dr. Pennington’s focus is to provide premium dental care using the most advanced techniques. His state-of-the-art facility spares nothing in the modern technologies available in dentistry today.  He partners with each patient to create the most comprehensive treatment plan to meet their dental needs and goals.  Making each patient feel comfortable, healthy and confident with their smiles is the passion that drew him to dentistry.

    I Had a filling come out the day before I moved to town. They got me in quickly and filled it the same day. They even showed me before/after pics of my tooth. Eternally grateful, definitely continuing with Dr. Pennington for non-urgent dental care as well.

    I had a wonderful experience today with my dental cleaning and my children’s. Andrea was very thorough and explained everything as she went along. Dr Pennington was a pleasure and happily addressed all my questions. I will definitely be returning routinely!

    Generally no one looks forward going to the dentist even more so when you are new to the area and need a tooth extraction. The office of Dr. Joshua Pennington is the most friendly and professional of any dentistry i have gone to in 80 years. From the time you walk in the door you are made to feel welcome. Dr. Pennington extracted the tooth with without pain and no after effects. My wife and I highly recommend Dr. Pennington and he will be our new dentist.
