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.

Palmer Distinctive Dentistry. We understand how you feel. If you are ashamed of your smile, suffering from toothaches, or unable to enjoy your favorite foods, we are here to change that, with compassion, exceptional dentistry, and safe, soothing sedation.
Sedation dentistry is also called sleep dentistry. Although you won't be technically unconscious, you will be unaware of the dental procedure. Most guests have little, if any, memory of the appointment, feeling as if they simply took a relaxing nap. There is no stress, no fear, and no discomfort. Because you have no concept of the passage of time, we can do more dental work in a single visit.
We use Triazolam, a prescription oral sedative similar to Valium. It is extremely safe, typically with no side effects. As a safety precaution, we do require that you have transportation home and refrain from driving until the sedative has completely worn off.
Sedation is available for any procedure. Don't let fear stand between you and your beautiful, healthy smile! Some guests choose to be sedated only for extensive work, or procedures (which are quite comfortable, but often feared). High-fear guests may wish to be sedated during routine appointments such as teeth cleaning or whitening.
Your first appointment is a consultation, and we do not proceed with any treatment plan, until you are confident and comfortable with your decision. You will never be told you "should" or "shouldn't" choose sedation. Likewise, you will never be pressured into dental work you don't want. We offer options, and discuss them with you, explaining everything clearly, and answering your questions, so that you can make an informed decision.
Many guests choose sedation only for the first few visits to our office. After experiencing the level of caring compassion, and gentle dentistry that we provide, the apprehension naturally melts away. Call (864) 332-4113 and schedule a consultation today, because you deserve a beautiful, healthy, anxiety-free smile.
