Dr. William (Buck) Pennington

Great Oaks Dental is happy to announce that Dr. William (Buck) Pennington will be joining our practice as of July 17, 2017. Dr. Pennington graduated from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry in 2014 and then completed a General Practice Residency at the Foundry Dental Center in Bessemer, Alabama. He has been practicing dentistry here in the upstate for the past two years. We are so happy to welcome Buck and Janna to Pickens County and look forward to introducing him to all our patients.

Here is a note from Dr. Pennington –

I am thrilled to be joining the Great Oaks team in July! Already in my short time getting to know them, it has been abundantly clear that the staff at Great Oaks treats both patients and each other with kindness, compassion, and respect. I consider it a privilege to be able to serve alongside them.

I graduated from Furman University with a degree in Spanish. Before attending dental school at the University of Alabama, I also earned a master’s degree in Spanish from the University of Georgia. After receiving my dental degree, I completed a general dentistry residency at The Foundry, just outside of Birmingham, AL, where I received advanced training in intravenous sedation, implant placement, and various other surgical procedures.

In addition to caring for patients and working with a team, I enjoy cooking, making music, and being outside with my wife, Janna, and our two sons, Bo and Harry.

Dr. Giddings and his staff are wonderful. The staff is professional and friendly, they care about their patients and it shows. I know most of us don’t like going to the dentist, but Dr. Giddings has a soft touch and really does his best to make the visit as comfortable as possible. I have TMJ and can’t leave my mouth open for long periods of time, and he is great to give me breaks so I don’t end up with headaches after I leave. I would absolutely recommend this team to my family and friends

This was the most thorough dental cleaning and checkup that I have ever had! I have a lot of confidence in this practice. Brittany was very professional and knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. Dr. Giddings was very nice and reassuring and also very professional. I would highly recommend this practice!!

For a person with dental work anxiety like me, the level of professionalism combined with care and the desire to keep the anxiety to a minimum is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

This was my second visit and it was as pleasant as the first. My questions were answered, all staff were extremely friendly, they did a great job cleaning my teeth, and they didn’t try to “sell” me on extra services.

This staff, from the Dentists to the assistants to the front desk are the friendliest, most professional and compassionate people ever to staff an office. I had to have an emergency cap for a broken tooth. With their machine (a lot like a 3D printer) I had a new, permanent cap in less than 2 hours.

“Everyone, from the office staff, hygienist, and dentist, were extremely friendly and professional. State of the art equipment and care.”

“It is an honor to be able to share life with our patients – as they grow up, marry, and become parents and grandparents. I share in their ups and downs, and have the privilege of caring for their dental needs all along the way.”
