Have been coming here for years now. Dr. Palmer and all of his staff are great. They don’t suggest anything unnecessary and are always up on the latest research. I live out of town but always come back to this office because they are all very professional, well organized and trustworthy. If only more offices were like this one!!!

Our family of 5 has been going to Dr. Palmer for many years now, and always receives high quality, professional and holistic care! The staff are wonderful, caring, and very well-trained, and they are continuously receiving additional education in new ways of improving oral health. Love that they educate clients in holistic ways of caring for your mouth and teeth, since that is the pathway to overall body health!

I had my 6 month cleaning done this week by a hygienist who I have only met once before, yet I knew from our conversation that Katie remembered me. Besides being cordial, she was efficient, professional and encouraging throughout the entire process. I have noticed this same level of proficiency and courtesy throughout their dental office and am thankful for the confidence I feel in their work.

I’ve lived in a lot of places across the United States, and it’s always tough to find a true biological dentist.  There are plenty that use it as a marketing ploy, but soon you find out that they’re encouraging root canals and other health-destroying dental practices.  So I was ecstatic to discover Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in little (compared to many places I’ve lived) Greenville.  The entire office is the real deal, understanding the impacts the mouth can have on the rest of the body.  The entire staff is so caring and kind, it is truly special and I’m so grateful to have Dr. Palmer as my dentist.  I would strongly recommend this dentist and his awesome staff to anyone and everyone, as long as I can still get an appointment!  :o)

I have absolutely loved coming here and the fact that it is holistic is a plus!!! The hygienists are awesome and Dr. Palmer is amazing. I will not be going anywhere else anymore. I had to get a tooth pulled and the fact that It didn’t swell and I didn’t have to take any pain medicines at all in just incredible. Extremely pleased

I had a great experience at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry last week. My hygienist was really thourough with my cleaning and made me feel comfortable from the time she introduced herself to the time I left. The tech who took the pictures of my teeth was also very professionnal and patient. Dr Palmer was friendly and clear in my dental care priorities. Similarly, Jenni understood i had to leave and offered to e mail me my estimate without pressing me to schedule an appointment. Great customer service in addition to be holistic! Alix N.

My wisdom tooth had to come out and as an adult, it’s not so easy!! Dr Palmer did a great job and was very quick, they gave me the Nucalm treatment which helps to calm with and it really helped to calm me down. The Platelet Rich plasma helped a ton with any bleeding and recovery as well! It’s not cheap to pay out of pocket, but Palmer and their staff do a fabulous job of taking care of their patients and making them feel comfortable and that’s worth every penny!! I would highly recommend their services to anyone!

I have never in my life had a better dental experience than I did today with Dr. Adams, Dr. Palmer and the entire staff at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry. From the first phone call to the moment you walk in the door they take your satisfaction and care very seriously. I drove three hours after numerous recommendations from friends and it was worth it. I have Lyme and other health concerns and they have extensive knowledge of how different conditions affect the teeth. They made a very tough situation as peaceful, comfortable and pleasant as humanly possible. The kindness each person showed to me truly brought tears to my eyes and I can’t recommend them enough!

I just recently established care at Palmer and I have been so pleased with my experience so far. After learning about the health dangers of cavitations, I wanted to see if I had any cavitations that could pose a long term risk to my own health. They are the place to go if you have silver amalgams, root canals, or cavitations in your mouth and are suffering from chronic disease. Since I value the importance of holistic health care, seeing a holistic dentist was a no brainer. The staff is so welcoming and friendly also! Karyn was my hygienist and it was the most pleasant cleaning I’ve ever received! I will be referring many people to them from here on.

May M. from Greenville, SC (Source: Yelp)


I was glad to find a dentist open to non-conventional approaches. He explained my options and the difference between his practice and most mainstream offices. Check out their website. The office is lovely with all the latest gadgets. The neck pillow and the wedge(may have a different technical name) that keeps your mouth open and relaxed while he works are the best!

Danny S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


What an amazing staff. I feel like this is the one dental practice that actually cares about your well being. I’ve had a lot of dentists make me feel like they’re only concerned about my money. Palmer Distinctive Dentistry is an amazing group of people, and I stand behind all of them. I’d give a 10 star review if I could, but Yelp! only allows 5 stars. Stop wasting your money elsewhere, and come be a part of this amazing dental family.

I highly recommend Palmer Distinctive Dentistry to anyone their staff is super amazing! From the moment you walk in the door till the time you leave their genuine care customer service skills are unlike anything I have seen and I am impressed! They make you feel welcome and special and right at home! Today we had Katie and she was amazing! She took care of my nephew with care and she was so informative to him and myself. She is kind and caring and made my nephew feel comfortable. I truly appreciate that. I feel like they honor their guest and its genuine and thats important to me! Thank you all for being so kind and treating us special!

Katie is wonderful. Dr Palmer & Dr Adams are kind & caring. Palmer dentistry was the first holistic dental office experience for us a couple years ago. We were looking for a new dentist & I knew that if Katie worked there it had to be good. This is the only dental office for us. I would recommend giving them a try. You won’t be disappointed.

I have been using Palmer Distinctive Denistry now for approximately 5 years. I went to them originally because my child broke one of his front teeth and it got seriously infected ! So thankful when I called the office they said..”This is serious …bring him right in. “Dr Palmer was very professional, kind , empathetic, and wise..He KNOWS DENISTRY like no other in my opinion . He helped my son so much, was very calm , cleared him of all infection. Now it is time to get an implant now that my son is 18. He is ready! I am looking so forward to getting that accomplished! I have used them for dental cleaning also! Excellent Hygienist! The office atmosphere is very clean , free of chemicals , decorated beautifully, decor is very nice! The music they play softly is encouraging and soothing ! I would recommend this place as a 10! Try them one time and you WILL BE BACK! I travel over 2 hours to get to the office! It is so worth it!

My husband and I have been going to Palmer Distinctive Dentistry for just shy of two years and let me tell you, they are amazing!! We had been looking for a holistic dentist, and wanted to have all my silver mercury fillings removed, which is one of the many services they offer. I couldn’t be happier with the results, also they were so kind and caring during all of my visits with the removal. Every time we go there, it’s like walking into a familiar place…everyone knows your name…everyone is so kind and cheerful! I just recently had my 6 month check up and I described it as a peaceful place….I have been in dentist office that are loud and not peaceful! We highly highly highly recommend them!!! Trust me you will be glad you went ther

I just moved here and have been looking for a holistic dentist. I had my first appointment and the staff is so sweet. They took the time to get to know me as a person and not just another set of teeth. I felt safe with their holistic approach and I am not worried about what they are putting in my mouth. I felt right at home and I definitely have found my new dentist.

Palmer Distinctive Dentistry has taken great care of me for several years! Recently I’m having some trouble with receding gums in one area and the ozone therapy is so helpful! Also got some new tools to use that don’t involve drilling and filling. Thankful for the open, honest approach and the great care they always provide. Karyn and the entire team are top notch!

I love the Palmer Distinctive Dentistry family, and they are one of the only dentist offices in Greenville that utilizes topical ozone treatment. They also abstain from the questionable ADA approved practices like amalgam fillings. They really care about your well-being and will always make decisions in your best interest.

From start to finish I had a great experience here. Each staff member was knowledgeable and kind. Dentistry is expensive in general and it actually made me feel good knowing that I was supporting a staff of people that do really well at their jobs. I love the holistic approach that they take to dentistry and I felt very comfortable in their hands

Hannah M. from Greenville, SC (Source: Yelp)


I started going to Dr. Palmer a few years ago, initially to get some teeth fixed and filled, and I enjoyed them so much I keep coming back. They were able to fix some problem teeth, and have always had great service whenever I go back for a cleaning. I love that they are so hospitable, and friendly whenever I go, as well as being more naturally minded in their approach to dental care. They are a bit more pricy, but they are always willing to go over the cost with me before I need to get anything extra done. With all the work they’ve done on my teeth, paying a little more has definitely been worth it! Love them!

Heidi S. from San Francisco, CA  (Source: Yelp)


I discovered Palmer Dentistry shortly after moving to Greenville and I was so thrilled to find them! I love how they have a holistic approach to dentistry and that they don’t put all that nasty stuff in your mouth! All of the people that work here are wonderful and make you feel at ease. They also do their job excellently! So glad to have found them! If you are looking for an excellent and awesome dentist, check them out!

I had a great first visit with Dr Palmer and my hygienist today. I ha e been looking for a new office for a while and they made me feel really good about my choice. For me my time with the hygienist is very important because I hate to be poked, she was very gentle and the gum measurements didn’t even hurt. Looking forward to my next visit

It’s always hard to find new providers when you move. I’m SO thankful I found Palmer Distinctive Dentistry. The care and service was top notch. So much so that I left and texted my husband that I couldn’t wait for him to experience it at his appointment! They were kind, courteous, answered all my questions and passed along all the pertinent information I had provided so I didn’t have to repeat myself with each handoff. Katie was amazing as well! Clearly gifted at what she does but so kind and answered all of my questions! So glad to be a new patient in this practice.

I recently had a consultation with Dr Palmer and his workers and it was a great experience from the time I walked in. Mariah (receptionist) was so thorough with her work and she made you feel welcomed. Excellent note taker as well. She presented me with a gift bag that made me smile and feel special. I am so sorry that I forgot this next young lady’s name but she was also amazing. Energy was genuine and I felt comfortable with her. When dr Palmer walked up and introduced himself it was as if I’ve known him my whole life. We bonded over his dad being from Brooklyn as well as myself and I really appreciate the time he spent with me. I never felt rushed as if I was a number. He was very upfront about everything which I love, & he came up with a treatment plan that I was happy with. I look forward to becoming a client with this practice because trust is #1 on my list and I felt that all through the process. I especially love he doesn’t use harmful chemicals in his practice.

True confession, I had not been to a dentist in 20 years.  As with many things, once you put it off it gets harder to put it back on the schedule again.  Then one day last year I bit down on a gummy bear and one of my wisdom teeth completely shattered.  I had heard good things about Palmer and gave them a call.  They were extremely gracious and did a great job of extracting what was left of my shattered tooth without any guilt trips about my lapsed care.  I have now been seeing them regularly for cleaning and maintenance and I am very happy. Would recommend absolutely.

Dr. Palmer has built a great dentistry for Greenville, South Carolina. The past two years that we’ve been going, each time has been a wonderful experience. They are patient when having to go over financial options, always hospitable whenever we walk in the door, and go above and beyond to make sure we get natural, high-quality dental care.

I’m currently sitting watching my wife have her treatment done and so far this is what I’ve experienced. I haven’t been to the dentist in over five years. Luckily, no issues. I found Palmer Dentistry by googling natural dentists in Greenville, SC. So glad I did!!! This place is amazing. Unlike any other dental experience I’ve ever had. As a new patient, instead of handing you a sheet of paper for you to fill out and then wait to see somebody after, the hygienist (ours was Jessica H-C) will sit you down in a private room to gather information (both medical and personal). They even gave us each a small gift bag. They get to know you and address any concerns you have and try their best to find out what type of patient you are and what it takes to fulfill your individual needs. I chose no x-rays simply because I didn’t feel they were necessary and prefer no radiation exposure when possible. They were more than happy to accommodate that need. On a side note…a conventional dentistry office in G-Ville that I attempted to set an appointment with prior to finding Palmer told me it was law that I could not decline x-rays even when paying out of pocket. I’m so glad I received the dishonest response. I wonder if they would have tried to force fluoride on me as well… The building, office and environment is phenomenal. Everything is comfortable. Hospitality is A+++++. Technology is A+++++. We got a full tour by our hygienist (Jessica H-C) and she was more than willing to answer any questions we had, and I had plenty in regards to our visit today, future amalgam removal and future preventative treatments. She gave us information and advice on oil pulling and offered products for purchase. She allowed myself and my wife to sit in on each other’s treatment. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We must have been asked at least five times if there was anything we needed. No soda available either! I love that! No fluoride treatment available either! Love that too! These people know what they are doing! I paid out of pocket for this treatment because I’ve chosen to decline dental coverage with my job assisted health insurance and quite frankly what we received so far today was far beyond what I will be paying and I WILL be returning to have the five amalgam fillings removed. I’m in the service industry and it’s extremely difficult to find businesses that care for their customers as this place does. A+++++ all around. Can’t go wrong here. Truly looking out for their clients’ best interests.

I love this place! I have a lot of health issues and anxiety, especially about going to the dentist, but going here felt more like going to a spa treatment. they were very patient with me and took many precautions to make sure that I was comfortable. I especially love the prayer they have posted on the wall. Christ presence is definitely felt in their office and through the loving and kind people that work there.

Staff and facilities were very professional. Experience was very pleasant and we were more than satisfied with treatment and care. Explanations of conditions and treatments were thorough and helpful. We’re willing to travel to get this kind of holistic treatment. We would highly recommend Dr. Palmer and his staff. Katie, Celia and Karyn were great! Update Karyn has been doing a wonderful job with our daughter’s mouth therapy! We’re very grateful for this place!

I highly recommend Palmer Dentistry. The holistic approach is extremely important and beneficial to my health and that of my family. I’ve had multiple appointments this year (2021) , one particular appointment was to remove my fillings. Very professional, walked me through the entire procedure which was fast and painless. I personally can not have a root canal, which many other dental practices do not stay open to a multitude of health issues and underlying conditions. At Palmer they do. The staff is incredible and you feel like the staff is part of your family. Very relaxing comfortable atmosphere. Today I was blessed to meet Taylor. It was a pleasure once again to be in their care.

I just recently decided to investigate whether or not I had cavitations in my mouth after wisdom tooth removal over 15 years ago. I was also interested in establishing care with a holistic dentist in the Upstate, as I had made the transition from regular dentistry to holistic dentistry several years ago in another city. The entire staff at Palmer is wonderful and they have state of the art equipment and unparalleled knowledge and experience when it comes to identifying dental issues that can pose long term health problems. Loved my experience with them and will continue to refer others to them also!

On Monday I had some dental surgery done with Dr. Palmer. I can’t tell you how nervous and anxious I was. Starting with the dentist all the way to the receptionist I have never felt more comforted and taken care of. My procedure ended up being much longer than we thought it would be and honestly I wouldn’t have wanted to be in anyone else’s care other than Dr. Palmer‘s. I not only will be recommending this Dentist office to EVERYONE…my next referral will be my husband and my family. Thank you again Palmer distinctive dentistry for taking care of me and being so patient.

relaxing dentistry, yes you read that right. peaceful and relaxing. Everyone is super nice. The office feels like a home, and the crosses and bible verses are comforting. I’ve been going to Palmer for a couple years now. I love the hygienists and dentists. They treat you like friends and family. I would drive hours to go to this dentist if I had to. I had two fillings done today. Quick and easy, and ALWAYS super nice.

My husband had an apt yesterday morning. We had been to Dr Palmer’s Dental office previously with our son and with my husband. We travel over 2 hours to get there. It is SO WORTH the drive. From the walk into the office you feel very special. They treat you with “royalty” it feels! From the front desk to the back with all the hygienists and the two dentists. Very caring, very clean environment, very good service indeed! We have used both Dr Palmer, who was great…as well as Dr Adams who was also great! Amazing dental office! Love the decor and how it reflects their love of the Lord! It shows you that anywhere you are, it can be used as a witness. Appreciate you all and look forward to coming back soon for my family’s dental care! Thank you all SO much! Donna Groover

5 stars doesn’t give Palmer Distinctive Dentistry justice! If I could give them 100 stars I would! The staff was beyond accommodating and a joy to be around! Dr. Palmer is amazing, friendly and treated me with care and compassion. If it wasn’t for this wonderful group of people to help remove a tooth that had been broken for 3 years I would still be suffering to this day. So, again I cannot begin to say how wonderful and blessed I was to be able to be treated by Dr. Palmer and his lovely assistants! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! From this point on Palmer Distinctive Dentistry will be the only place I go for my dental work!
