Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

In Greenville, SC holistic dentistry philosophies are found in general dentistry care

Holistic General Dentistry Care in Greenville SC

Searching for a dentist can be daunting. You want someone with experience and a good reputation. You also want a trustworthy provider whose values align with your own. Dr. Palmer, Dr. Knause, and the team at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry offer holistic dentistry services to guests in the Greenville, SC area. Our team offers high-quality dental services to keep your smile healthy and beautiful while maintaining your health and wellness.

Holistic dentistry as part of general dentistry care

Holistic dental practices focus on a guest’s overall health, not just the health of the oral cavity. The health of the mouth impacts the rest of the body. Every procedure and technique we use has an effect on the whole guest. We take these points into consideration to ensure our guests’ health and safety. We utilize non-toxic materials and carefully consider their impact on our guests. Appointments are individualized for the prevention, detection, and prompt treatment of dental problems. Guests are treated using procedures and techniques that are safe and best suited for their unique needs. At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, our team works with you to preserve the health of your mouth.


Holistic dentistry is not just a piece of our practice, it is our overarching philosophy. Each aspect of our dental practice falls under the holistic approach. This includes general dental care. The objective for general dental practices is to prevent, detect, and treat oral issues. We strive to help guests maintain healthy mouths. General services include routine examinations every six months, dental cleanings, and metal-free fillings.


Routine dental visits include having the teeth professionally cleaned and polished by a hygienist. Then, the dentist assesses the teeth, soft tissues, and oral cavity. Digital x-rays check the bone structures and identify underlying problems. Unless otherwise directed, appointments are scheduled at six-month intervals, so if problems do arise, they do not have time to develop into major issues before the next dental exam. General dental care is a crucial piece in preserving the health of your mouth and body.

Individualized guest care

Individualized guest careAt Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we are committed to individualized guest care. Our guests are important to us and are treated as the unique individuals they are. Our team of dental experts is committed to protecting our guests’ health with holistic dental care.

  • Bacteria and toxins that enter or damage the oral cavity can develop into problems for the whole body. The mouth is the portal to the body. What enters the mouth affects the entire individual.
  • We consider the same principle when choosing holistic therapies and materials. We utilize treatments and medications that are biocompatible, healthy, and safe for the human body. Biocompatible materials are less likely to cause adverse or allergic reactions.
  • Our dental team takes the time to educate our guests on the appropriate care of the oral cavity and how to adjust lifestyles accordingly to promote healthy mouths and bodies.

Comprehensive, holistic dental care

Holistic dentistry may be considered “alternative dentistry” but it truly encompasses many dental practices. Many people assume holistic dentistry only applies to the safe removal of amalgam fillings. While this is a part of holistic care, our quality care includes a range of services to contribute to oral and overall health and to meet a variety of needs. We know that each guest is unique and tailor the services as needed.


If dental problems arise, rehabilitative services may be needed. Trauma, illness, and age increase the likelihood of oral problems. To restore and protect the teeth and gums, we may use metal-free restorations, periodontal therapy, and the safe removal of amalgam fillings. We offer ozone therapy to safely treat gum disease, to sterilize a tooth after decay has been removed, or to sterilize a surgical site after an extraction. Our dental services are comprehensive and holistic, giving guests a sense of security knowing we have their health in mind.


If you are searching for a dentist you can trust who is focused on your overall health, contact Palmer Distinctive Dentistry. Dr. Palmer and Dr. Knause are members of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). Our entire team is committed to a health-conscious approach to dentistry that preserves the health and beauty of our guests’ smiles.
