Dr. Jenny Punnett had a lot of exposure to the dental setting at a young age when she would stop in to visit her dad at work at the Fort Langley Dental Office. She always enjoyed her dental visits growing up and hopes she can provide for others the same positive experience she has always associated with dentistry. She strives to do everything she can to make patients feel at ease through her gentle and kind demeanor and enjoys spending time explaining procedures to make sure each patient can make an informed decision about their treatment. She believes it is important to discuss preventive treatment options to try and help patients address not only current concerns but also what can be done to decrease the risk of future problems. Her primary goal is to treat every patient she sees as though they are a close family member or friend. She values the opportunity that general dentistry provides to have multigenerational families as patients and to see these patients over many years to build long term trusting relationships.
Dr. Punnett graduated from UBC Dentistry in 2016 and moved to Calgary to begin her career as a practicing dentist. She was a member of multiple study clubs in Calgary as well as the Calgary Dental Curling Club. She volunteered over 100 hours of her time to the Calgary Urban Project Society Free Extraction Clinic throughout her time in Calgary. She and her husband recently decided to make the move back West and have settled down in Langley. Dr. Punnett is thrilled to be back in her hometown and to be part of this community again.
Dr. Punnett always knew she wanted a career that would challenge her and provide opportunities for lifelong learning. She doubts there will ever come a time where she feels there is nothing left to learn in dentistry – there are always advancements in materials and techniques and so many interesting areas of specialization to pursue. Dr. Punnett continues to strive for excellence in what she does by attending numerous continuing education courses, including participation in the Willowbrook Spear Study Club and attending courses at the Kois Centre.
On her days off she loves to be out exploring new trails on her mountain bike with her husband. She also enjoys reading, playing the piano and spending time with her family and friends.
When she asked her husband what she should write for her website bio he replied “that you are a big dental nerd and love talking about teeth with anyone who will listen!”

Dr. Clark continues to expand her dental knowledge by participating in continuing education courses. Her interests are in oral surgery (extractions), endodontics (root canals), and various restorative procedures (fillings, crowns, etc.).
In her free time, Dr. Clark enjoys spending time with her boyfriend and loved ones, playing board games, watching movies, and making various crafts.
