John J. Palmer, DMD
Dr. John J. Palmer has been improving lives with beautiful, healthy smiles from the time he graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina School of Dentistry in 1982 at the top of his class. He founded Palmer Distinctive Dentistry with the goal of providing individualized dental care in a comfortable atmosphere with biocompatible materials and gentle procedures. He incorporates the latest technology and stays at the forefront of new research and discoveries, to bring you the best that dentistry has to offer.
Dr. Palmer, a pioneer in advanced dentistry, was among the first dentists nationwide to use CEREC. He incorporated the in-office restoration system in 1997. He has completed extensive Comprehensive Cosmetic Techniques training from the Baylor University. He has also received advanced training at the renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.
As a dedicated holistic dentist, Dr. Palmer is one of the few professionals trained in the safe removal of amalgam fillings. He uses IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) established procedures, and maintains awareness that anything affecting your mouth also affects your whole body. Advanced laser technology and ozone therapy are among the safe and surgery-free techniques employed to treat periodontal (gum) disease.
Dr. Palmer chose to establish the first Center for Dental Medicine in the region, with a vision of bridging the gap between the dental and medical communities. This helps in the identification of diseases in the mouth, which may have the potential for causing disease throughout the body.
Dr. Palmer is an accredited member of The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. He is a national speaker, as well as teaching the Fundamentals of Safely Removing Mercury to members. He is a Board Certified Naturopathic Physician, with certifications from the American Naturopathic Certification Board and the Board of Integrative Medicine and Dentistry.
Memberships maintained by Dr. Palmer include Omicron Upsilon Dental Honor Society, International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine, Holistic Dental Association, and the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists.
Hello, my name is Celia, and I am the Patient Coordinator at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry.

Hello, my name is Kim, and I have been a part of the Palmer Distinctive Dental team since 1991 as a dental assistant. I find it very rewarding working with Dr. Palmer to help you achieve your goals for a healthy and beautiful smile! I even make it comfortable for you by offering a movie to watch during your treatment! I really enjoy talking with our patients and learning bits and pieces of your personal lives. Since starting to work at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, I have made many wonderful friendships.
Hi, my name is Jessica. I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2004 and have been a part of the Palmer Distinctive Dental team since 2008. One of the reasons I became a hygienist is my Dad always told me, "one of the first things you see in a person is their smile!" Therefore, making my patients smile with confidence is a huge reward in my job! Getting to know patients on a personal level and developing a relationship is something of great importance to me! I look forward to meeting you and seeing you smile!
Phenomenal practice and dentist. I drove from Columbia and was worth the trip. Both my husband and I will be back for all future
dental needs. Dr Palmer is incredibly knowledgeable and talented.
