★★★★★

I’ve always had bad experiences with dentists and doctors, especially since I have very bad anxiety about being touched by strangers. My teeth were already in a bad way because of it, but after breaking one of my front teeth and trying to live with it for ages, it finally reached the nerve, was badly abscessed and I had no choice but to finally look for help. I was too scared to call, so I emailed for my appointment and the person who answered was as kind and friendly as could be. They encouraged me to ask questions or let them know if there was anything they could do at all to help accommodate me and never once make me feel like my anxiety was a nuisance like other people have. That made me feel safe enough to go in for the initial visit. When I was there, everyone there was gentle and considerate and acted like they really cared about me whenever it looked like I was having a rough time with panic attacks, they didn’t just toss paperwork at me and ignore me completely until it was time to see me like so many others have and they all tried so hard to be supportive of me to help me through it. I hadn’t even met the dentist himself yet and I was already shocked at how different the visit was from any other I’d had. When I did meet him, I wasn’t disappointed. He was just as friendly and warm as his staff and he took great care to make sure I was okay both physically and emotionally. He always asked if I was ready before touching me and let me take things slowly if I needed to, he didn’t treat me like just another customer to get out of there as quickly as possible so he could get the next one in. I have NEVER experienced such amazing care from a dentist before. I could not believe how different it was from past experiences. He was never cold, critical, judgmental or condescending and I genuinely felt like he cared about me as a person and wanted to help me not be in pain. He felt completely sincere. After meeting Dr. Palmer and his staff I was willing to attempt being awake for the procedures needed since being fully sedated would have been a bit too expensive and I felt like I could trust them. They freely offered me a mild sedative so I could be relaxed and had no problem working around having my husband in the room so he could keep me calm as well as being supportive of me wanting my eyes covered. The nurse even brought me a warm blanket to help me feel better and constantly gave me encouragement. The dentist worked his fingers off to get everything I needed done in one procedure so I wouldn’t need to be afraid of doing more later, but he still always gave me moments to breathe and relax. Even at the parts where he had to concentrate, he still kept my needs in mind and was always considerate. Even better, he didn’t just pull my badly eroded tooth and leave me feeling humiliated with one front tooth left like other dentists would have, he went to the trouble to fix it completely and even the one next to it. I’ve been so ashamed of my broken tooth and thought it would be worse when it was gone and it felt so good when my husband told me the new ones look beautiful. Afterwords I was a trembling mess and couldn’t thank them all the way I wanted to, but no matter how scared I was, they got me through it and it was the best experience I have EVER had, bar none. No dentist or doctor and their staff have ever made me feel as safe and welcome as they did and I think I can finally be willing to make seeing the dentist a regular thing so long as it’s them. Thank you so much to everyone there at Dr. Palmer’s clinic!

I had a great experience here! I am very scared of the dentist and had not been to one in a few years. Every person from the receptionist to the hygienist to the dentist were so very very nice and accommodating. They got everything I needed done as quickly as possible while making sure I was comfortable the whole time. I really appreciated the whole staff and would highly recommend them to anyone with a fear of the dentist.

I recently moved to UT and was very hesitant on seeing a new dentist considering I’ve had my dentist for 25+ yrs and after reading many reviews of other dentists, I chose Dr. Palmer. After my first visit with him and the team, I found my new dentist. I went in for a checkup and cleaning and everyone on the team was very friendly. During the process, they explained everything they were going to do and they were very thorough. I had some buildup on my teeth so it required some scrapping but after going through that, I never realized how heavy handed my old dentist was. The hygienist performing the procedure on my teeth had very lite hands and didn’t feel a thing. My old dentist never charged me for dental work so I can’t say whether or not Dr Palmer’s prices are reasonably priced or not

Needed a new dentist to do some restorative work and based on previous reviews tried Dr. Palmer. Very happy with the result. Same day crown, extremely fast and with no pain. Great staff, very friendly, efficient and caring. I’ll be back, so happy to have found my new dentist.

My family and I have had wonderful experiences at Dr. Palmer’s office. His office is very clean and up-to-date with the newest technology, and his office staff are always very professional. Our routine cleanings have been handled efficiently – my twins and I are done within 45 minutes, something that has never happened at other dentist offices. It’s amazing to me that although I live in Davis County, traveling the 30 minutes to Dr. Palmer’s office is still faster than a visit to our former dentist if you include the cleaning times. It’s definitely worth the extra travel time to Dr. Palmer’s office because the experience there is so pleasant. When my daughter chipped her permanent front tooth, he was able to get her in right away and fixed it so quickly that I couldn’t believe it. Not to mention that we couldn’t even tell it had been chipped in the first place! He is great with children and makes my daughters feel so comfortable. They actually look forward to their trips to the dentist. As other reviewers have mentioned, Dr. Palmer also takes the time to follow-up after our visits. I’ve never heard of a doctor doing that before – but the quick phone call to see how the patient is doing goes above and beyond

★★★★★

I highly recommend Dr. Palmer. He is a great dentist with an excellent staff. Everyone is very friendly and does a great job. The hygienists get your teeth very clean and feeling great. Very conveniently located close to downtown Salt Lake City. The office is very clean and the staff are well dressed and presentable.

Finally found a dentist that isn’t about gimmicks, and genuinely cares about doing the job right. I’ve been to a myriad of dentists that have done poorly, done work that didn’t need to be done, or were just in a hurry. Dr Palmer identified and fixed a poorly designed crown by another dentist that the other dentist couldn’t seem to figure out wouldn’t fit with my bite, causing me headaches. He does his crowns in house, which is extremely nice not having to wear a temporary cap for a few weeks. He’s honest and his office seems to all be on the same page, which I think is important. They aren’t wearing fake smile, they’re all well educated, and they seem to like working with him. This makes for a genuine experience. I’ll be sticking with this office for a long time

I HATE the dentist, but not this one. The whole experience of going to Dr. Palmer’s office is a great one. Except the fact I use it as a way to get time off work, and I always schedule my appointments for 8am and don’t actually get to sleep in! But that’s on me! I too came here because of the reviews on Yelp, and I guess this is why reviews are a thing, they work. This is the top rated Dentist in SLC because….they are! The gals at the front desk are out of this world helpful. The office in general is willing to do whatever! And they are so kind and nice. I first went for a check up and a clean, I hadn’t been to the dentist in a while and was quite worried about going. I felt so comfortable here. My back wisdom tooth was becoming infected and it looked pretty rough – obviously, they said I had to get this out. They asked me if I wanted them (2 wisdom teeth) out the very next day!! I would have said yes but I was going on vacation so I left it til the next week. I went in to get them taken care of, the teeth were out of my gum already so I didn’t need to be put to sleep or anything like that. I got the bill for my two wisdom at $64!!!! 64!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Incredible. I recommended my friend to go to the office for his first dentist visit in a few years as well and we share the same opinion, these guys are great. If you don’t have a dentist, or looking for a new one, this is a no brainer!! My only doubt in recommending them is I won’t have as much freedom to pick an appointment if you guys all start going! The best dentist I’ve ever been to, plain and simple, you won’t regret going to these guys!

Dr Palmers office got me in right away for a tooth ache. I was a new patient. They explained everything really well and we’re very thorough. Dr Palmer was conservative with his treatment plan and had me on my way quickly. I’m super prone to cavities so they gave me prescription toothpaste. The dental chairs were also massage chairs which was awesome.

Dr. Palmer and his staff are very professional and pleasant. This is by far my best dentist I’ve had in years. I’m always anxious when I go to the dentist and Dr. Palmer calmed all my fears with his gentle touch. This office make you feel very comfortable and at ease. I had no pain numbing! Yes NO PAIN NUMBING….that speaks volumes in itself for me at least. I’m excited to see my future with this office to improve my smile. This is a FABULOUS dentist office and I highly recommend this office, to anyone seeking a professional and gentle dentist.

So I was truly blessed by this entire staff of both professional and compassionate People this morning I woke up with an emergency situation, no insurance, new to the area and limited with cash on hand. I called into Palmer’s office, praying for someone who could hopefully help me out, and to mchristinemet Caroline, God Bless her heart. After giving her my info, and my “hard luck” story, she said that she wasn’t able to guarantee that I would be seen, however she would do her best and if I couldn’t be seen there, that she would work with me to get me seen somewhere today. Well she made me feel like she cared and she went above and beyond and Spoke with Dr. Palmer who graciously made time to see me. He was very caring and reassuring, and has put together an adept staff of individuals who catered to my dilemma in a way that superceeds any other dental establishment that I have ever frequented. Thank You so very much!

I have had my share of bad dentists and dentists with high prices or dentists that dont charge a lot but their workmanship is poor. His staff is genuine and caring. His explanation of everything is amazing. A great teacher. He gives you choices and his prices are fair. Thanks for the great service!

I found Dr Park by referral and all I can say is amazing things. Dr Park has been an amazing dentist. I’ve been having work done on my teeth for the past year and I wouldn’t of been able to do it if it wasn’t for this dental office. They work so well with you and let you make payment arrangements. I’m so happy to finally have found this dentist. Thank you so much Dr Park. Dustin Young

Dr Palmer and his staff are great! They know me by name and always ask about my family when I’m there. I’ve always had great dental care from them and would highly recommend them. My wife had a terrible experience with a dentist many years ago that frightened her so bad that she had not been to a dentist for 11 years. Finally a dental issue forced her to go and I recommended Dr Palmer to her. She went and had such a great experience that her fears have calmed and she was very grateful for their care and attentiveness to her needs.

These guys are great! The most wonderful staff and care! I found Dr. Palmer’s office after having a terrible experience elsewhere so I was nervous going back to a dentist but even as a new patient they got me in same week and did a great job and took such good care of me! Everyone in the office was entirely helpful and kind. 10/10 recommend.

Dr. Palmer is the BEST dentist I have EVER been to- and that says a lot because I have been to dozens. I have had teeth problems my whole life, and I have felt so discouraged and defeated by so many dentists and not sure what to believe, feeling like they aren’t trusting etc. I was referred to Dr. Palmer by 3 separate people so I took a chance. He has been amazing. He thoroughly explains to me everything that’s going on and what he’s going to do- I feel like he is 100% trustworthy and isn’t just trying to make some money— but genuinely cares. I feel so much more hopeful about my teeth for the first time so I am a patient for life! He is also extremely gentle and careful which is awesome too. His staff is sooo friendly and nice! I’m just so grateful I have found someone I trust since my teeth have always been a huge concern my whole life.

I love this dentist! I got 5 teeth extracted. He had to put Anesthia a couples of times in my mouth but I didn’t feel no pain. He is very caring. He would ask my a lot Are you okay? With all honesty I have found my dentist for my family and I. I am so happy I found him on Yelp. The dental assistants and the receptionist are very sweet as well. His whole staff is awesome!

Spencer J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I’ve been seen by probably a dozen dentists since I was a kid, and Dr. Palmer is definitely among the best — the rare mix of good bedside manner (err, “chair”side manner!), skilled (he did wonders in re-shaping/sculpting my front two teeth), and reasonably priced (my prior dentist here in Salt Lake charged me a ton more, for less and subpar work!). I highly recommend him.

Lilly S. from Magna, UT (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Palmer is truly the best dentist I could ever conjure up in my dreams. He’s such a kind, caring guy, genuinely wants his patients to feel extremely well taken care of. He does a fantastic job every time, and I’ve heard him say “it takes a long time to do a filling the right way.” This really assures me of his intentions: he’s not just in it for the money, he’s going to take his time to make sure everything is done right! He and his team are the best anyone could ask for, and they make you feel very comfortable in there! If you’re questioning which dentist to visit, DO NOT hesitate to go to Dr. Palmer!

I was very impressed with my experience with Dr. Robert Palmer. I found their office through my insurance website, and the receptionist was very open and friendly for scheduling an appointment. The x-ray technician, hygienist, and the dentist himself were all so friendly and personable. They were professional and gentle with their work. They contacted my insurance company while I was in my appointment, so payment was quick and the rates seemed reasonable. The office is really small, but clean and nice. I’m going back!

PRAISES TO DR. PALMER AND HIS STAFF!!! Dr. Palmer will forever be my dentist! Not only did he inexpensively fix my husbands crooked teeth (which he has hated for years) with his in house orthodontic trays. But when my brother broke his front tooth crown late Sunday night Dr. Palmer got him in MONDAY MORNING! My brother was blown away (as I always am) by the warmth of the staff and the amazingly high level of care he received. They repaired his tooth BEAUTIFULLY (you can’t even tell) to get him by while my brother finds time in his schedule to get it replaced in ONE DAY thanks to their in house crown making machine (I don’t know what it’s called haha). It baffles me how high tech yet reasonably priced and kind this office is. I will forever recommend anyone who needs a dentist to see Dr. Palmer. THANK YOU FOR BEING SO GREAT!!!!

Dr. Palmer and his staff consistently go above and beyond to make the person that they are seeing feel as if they are the only client that they have. I was more than hesitant to see a dentist for financial reasons, and also because of my fear and history with bad dentists. He absolutely changed that for me. From the first visit I felt comfortable and informed on my dental hygiene. Dr. Palmer discussed all of my financial options and worked with me so that my care options were catered to my needs. He and his staff are truly genuine people that want the best for you. He has now seen a few of my friends and family members and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I recently moved to Salt Lake City and was looking for a dentist close to where I live. I found Dr. Palmer’s office and called right away. They were able to accommodate me the same day. Upon entering the office, I was impressed by how clean and nice it is. The receptionist was very welcoming. Dr. Palmer and his assistant were fantastic. They did a great job on my cleaning and made sure the whole time that I was comfortable. A week after the appointment, I got a handwritten letter from Dr. Palmer thanking me. That had never happened to me before so I was definitely very impressed. I will be coming back for sure

I chose this dentist because of the Yelp reviews, but honestly I thought they could’ve just been written by friends or family–who writes such glowing reviews about their dentist? But now I understand completely. Dr. Palmer’s office was far and beyond the best of any health care experience I’ve had. I booked an appointment for the end of July, but they called me later and said they had a cancellation and could get me in the very next day. The staff made me feel so welcome and comfortable. My hygienist talked me through every step and Dr. Palmer spent an incredible amount of time with me talking through my history, things we might address in the near future, potential issues I might have down the line, and how to prevent them. I didn’t feel rushed with him, and he answered all of my questions. I can’t say enough about Dr. Palmer and his staff. I left feeling so cared for and just really happy! That’s a great (and rare) way to come out of the dentist!

First visit here was very good. I have been to a few dental offices that felt more like spa traps than professional medical establishments in the past- that was not the case here which For me is a good thing. Everyone was very professional, timely, honest about pricing and necessity of services they offer, kind, and it was a laid back/comfortable environment.

So I was flying into Salt Lake City to spend a week in Park City for Sundance and one of my crowns fell out while I was waiting to board my plane. While waiting to take off I found Dr. Palmer’s office via my insurance website and Yelp reviews. My experience is that the FIVE STAR rating of this wonderful office is so very well deserved. When I called to make an appointment to see what could be done about my crown they offered me a same day appointment! Amazing! The staff is delightful and wonderful. Dr. Park is a real pro with a wonderful bedside manner. Dr. Park re-cemented my old crown which had worn thin (I’m a grinder) with the caveat that it might not stay affixed very long, so I made an appointment to come back a few days later when they had time on the schedule to make a new crown for me RIGHT THERE IN THEIR OFFICE! More amazing! The work is Top-Notch!!! From the moment the new crown has been in my mouth it has felt great… no discomfort whatsoever, and feels even better than before! I think I may be flying back to Salt Lake City for all of my dental needs! Thank you everyone!

Let me start off by saying I hate!! Hate going to the dentist. I work a very busy schedule and can be flaky when it comes to appointments so I just don’t make them. This place was very welcoming and open to helping me. They were as gentle as they could be. I haven’t had a dentist in over 20 years. I am so happy I found this place.

My teeth were cracking or breaking very easily. I found out from Dr. Palmer and his excellent staff, that I have dry mouth syndrome (probably caused by some medications I take) which can predispose me to weak and cavity prone teeth. He has expertly filled all of my cavities and is building a partial bridge to replace the 4 teeth that broke and had to be extracted (last year, by a different dentist before I found Dr. Palmer). He also has started me on a plan to both reduce dry mouth and to strengthen my remaining teeth. He is friendly, non-judgmental and the very best dentist I have gone to (in my 65 years)! I had to also have an old crown redone and he replaced it in under 90 minutes – no temporary! He actually made the crown in his own lab – in his office! His friendly staff has gone out of their way to do things for me that were over and above what you would expect, like call and check on insurance deductables and coverage amounts. They took my SelecHealth Dental insurance, as well. Oh, and if you really hate getting “the shot” to numb you up, I can say that he is so skilled, that I barely noticed he was injecting (and this deserving praise, is coming from a retired RN!) I now have my wife and a son seeing Dr. Palmer for their dental care. I would also venture to say that the prices he charges are very reasonable – I was actually shocked when my balance was much, much less, than I expected! I am an honest guy and I honestly do believe he’s the best dentist I have been to! J. Poen

Dr. Palmer and his staff are great. Professional and friendly. I got THE most thorough and informative checkup/cleaning at this office. Took some “before” pictures of my teeth to keep on file. Not just xrays, but photos. They even looked at the health of my tongue (?!) and no other dentist has done that for me before. At the end of the cleaning they gave me a soft bristle toothbrush and I love it. I also got my first-ever fillings here to fix how much I used to grind my teeth at night. Was able to get it done without any numbing or pain killers. Quick and easy!

I am super picky when it comes to dentists. I can handle any other medical procedure, but when it comes to my mouth I am very particular. Dr Palmer, Dr Park, and the entire staff here are fantastic. The office is a little small, but they do a good job managing the space. I live in utah county, so its a bit of a drive, but its always worth it. I really appreciate the honesty and integrity both Dr Palmer and Park practice. Prior to my first visit, I went to a different office and both the hygienist and doctor told me I had at least four cavities with the possibility of even more in the near future. They handed me a packet and walked me across the office to their financing department to go over the expense of the now six cavities. I was so confused how I gained two cavities just by walking across the hallway. When I went to Dr Palmer, he told me I had one cavity, and a few problem areas. Not six. So, after taking care of the cavity, he gave me instructions on how to practice better dental hygiene and by the next teeth cleaning the problem areas had cleared up. Needless to say, as long as I live in utah Dr Palmer will be my dentist.

The whole staff were super nice; you rarely experience this kind of superb hospitality anywhere these days! Taylor, (and was it Shirley?), and Dr. Palmer were so friendly, my visit there felt more like seeing friends and/or families rather than an appointment. I definitely recommend this congenial and amicable place to anyone and everyone!

Honestly would not go anywhere else for dental care. Dr. Palmer is knowledgeable and caring, he will do whatever it takes to help you feel better. I’ve had 2 extractions and implants, a root canal and my wisdom teeth taken out. He did an excellent job on all of them and really makes me feel much better anytime I’m in the chair. I have anxiety when I’m getting work done and I know I can trust him to do a fantastic job, which makes everything go smoother for me. All of the staff there are the nicest people. After my dog Scooby passed away, Dawn was so kind to me about it. Caroline, Paula, Ruth, Deanne, Dawn and Rachel I’ve worked with before and are all fantastic as they come, and I’m certain everyone there is the same way, even though I don’t know them. Thank you for doing what you’re doing.
