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.

An ongoing illness with extreme fatigue for a year or more with no answers in sight from test after test led my Dr. to recommend I make an appointment with Palmer Distinctive Denistry. Now I was not a fan of any Dentist as they horrified me! But...I made the appointment as my health was getting worse. I was amazed at how welcome the staff made me feel & as I'm led to that dreaded Dental chair listening to them explain NuCalm, a natural relaxation technique, & listening to them explain how they would take care of me, I would be fine, etc...I'm looking at them out the corners of my eyes thinking, yea, they all say that! You see, I'm a 47 year old horrified cry baby when it comes to my teeth! So since I really have no choice but to let them try to help me, I chose to use the NuCalm as its natural & there's no drugs or narcotics involved although I was thinking to myself, please just knock me out! To my amazement when my procedures were done, I literally burst into tears of relief!! These people had begun to heal me without hurting me!! I cannot stress enough how amazed & relieved I was at the care & comfort I had received! I even told Dr. Palmer that I thank God for sending him to do this work! It still brings me to tears just thinking about it. If you are reading this & you are like myself, horrified of Dentists, I urge you to give yourself the gift of making an appointment with these people. I am looking forward to my next appointment!
Switch off stress at your next appointmentWe make every effort to understand your individual needs to ensure your comfort at our office. We’ve helped many patients overcome dental anxiety because we believe that having compassion and mutual trust helps us work together so you can have healthy gums, teeth and overall health.
While some patients with anxiety have become used to sedation during their dental visits, we don’t want our patients to be impaired to make decisions, feel groggy afterwards, or to disrupt their day. NuCalm provides you with a deep relaxation experience during your appointment, so you’ll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated – without drugs or side effects.
What is NuCalm?NuCalm is a patented, all-natural stress intervention technology. NuCalm scientifically sequences four relaxation therapies to mimic your body’s own process for ‘winding down’ and preparing for sleep. You will feel the same way you feel just as you are about to fall asleep.
How Does NuCalm Work?Deep relaxation is achieved through 4 simple steps. NuCalm is administered by our dental team at the beginning of your appointment and takes just a few minutes to apply. While listening to soothing music, you will relax comfortably in the chair for the entire appointment. The dental assistant will take about 90 seconds to do the following steps prior to your procedure.
Step 1: Apply the NuCalm cream to the front of the neck to help relaxation.
Step 2: Apply patches behind ears for the Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation device to help facilitate the relaxation response.
Step 3: Listen to soothing music through noise-cancelling headphones. Layered in the music is proprietary neuroacoustic software designed to guide you to deep relaxation.
Step 4: Light-blocking eye mask or glasses to block visual stimulation and help maintain relaxation.
What to expectYou will feel completely normal, just as relaxed as you when you’re about to fall asleep. You’ll be able to think, hear and talk to us as needed without impairment. NuCalm helps to relieve everyday stress and anxiety. That’s why it’s been so beneficial in dentistry. In fact, over 700,000 dental patients across five continents have experienced NuCalm and 98% say they would recommend it to family and friends.
