With over 35 years of experience, Peter Feige, DD, FCAD of Owen Sound Denture Clinic has helped bring back smiles of numerous Owen Sounds residents.
Owen Sound Residents Well Served
For the past two weeks I have been staying with my 89-year-old aunt Susan Mevil.
When I arrived from the United Kingdom, Susan was in urgent need of new dentures and a number of extractions.
I should like to record how grateful my aunt and I are for the first-class service she received from Dr. Crowe, a dentist, and Mr. Peter Feige, a denture specialist, both of Owen Sound.
I am sure the residents of Owen Sound are being, and will continue to be, well served by both these gentlemen.
I would like to write about a Christmas miracle that happened to my grandpa. After surgery, grandpa misplaced his dentures while staying at the hospital. He is 97 years old and losing his teeth was way worse than having the surgery. Grandpa was in dire need of some teeth! Well, grandpa got out of the hospital on Dec. 21 and after placing a call on Dec. 22 to an amazing man and denturist, Dr. Peter Feige, we were told to bring grandpa right over.
When we got to his office we were treated like family visiting on Christmas. Once in the chair, grandpa was told that he would have his teeth the next day. Dr. Feige was going to spend his entire day and night right before Christmas making grandpa his teeth. He said that grandpa had to be able to eat his Christmas dinner! Grandpa’s face lit up with disbelief and happiness.
I have never witnessed such caring and genuine heart in any services I have dealt with. Dr. Feige is our family’s Christmas angel. We thank you with our whole hearts! The Christmas spirit truly does still exist.

Take a bow!
You make take a bow! This is my third upper denture and never before have I had one that fit so well.
There will be no need for any adjustment. There is no pressure at any point. In fact what an old pair of shoes does for your feet, this denture does for my mouth.
Thank you for a job well done, I endorse your craftsmanship whole-heartedly.
Mr. Feige’s house call
Essie Renwick, a resident of Mount Forest, has nothing but praise to offer Peter Feige. The charming 101-year-old senior has been his patient for six years, receiving a new set of dentures from him at the age of 95.
In a rather unique way, the dentures have created a bond between patient and denturist – one filled with mutual trust and understanding.
From a distance, it is the picture of two old friends meeting again after a brief absence, when Mrs. Renwick and Mr. Feige engage in a visit. They share a few jokes while discussing his recent vacation to the Dominican Republic and her birthday, which was on December 13.
She recalls, with a faithful glance in his direction, the times when she was unable to go to his office and he repeatedly brought his service to her home.
“I think it was just marvellous,” Mrs. Renwick says with an appreciative smile.
“He came and did all the fittings and brought them back and there was only one thing to fix. Now, I have dentures, and I can chew things I didn’t before.”
The new set of dentures has been trouble-free, giving her an added independence and enabling her to maintain a healthy physical and mental state of being.
A few tears appear when she remembers the day Mr. Feige brought in her finished new dentures.
“When I reached to get my cheque book, Peter said, ‘Any person who has lived to be 100 should have dentures made for them free,’” Mrs. Rewick recalls.
“Well, I just cried.”
Peter smiles and replies, “I may never have another chance to make a denture for a lady that has blessed at that age.”
Even though quite independent for a woman of her age, she counts on professionals such as Peter Feige for support and assistance.
Mrs. Renwick and Mr. Feige share a smile and a gentle pat on the hand, before he heads back to his clinic.
“Every time you make another denture for someone it is that same feeling of, ‘I have helped somebody,’ and that feeling just blossoms,” Mr. Feige explains as he locks Mrs. Renwick’s door and heads back to work.
