Dr. Walter J. Palmer, DDS

“My commitment is to give people hope with their smiles and serve everyone like family. This is the reason why I continue to get the best education in the latest trends in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. I’m also truly blessed to work with the support of an exceptional team!”

Dr. Palmer has a unique talent for creating dazzling smiles that complement each individual’s tooth structure, skin tone, and facial attributes. One very important aspect of achieving this is taking their smile and any specific concerns they may have. A comprehensive patient consult is free of charge.

At River Bluff Dental’s state-of-the-art practice in West Bloomington, Dr. Palmer provides the most current “high-tech”, full services. He is highly skilled at designing CEREC CAD/CAM “single appointment” porcelain crowns and restoration.

Five-Star Reviews
‘‘I wanted to have the smile that I felt ‘matched me’. I have always had bad teeth due to genetics and I was very self-conscious. I wanted to be able to smile with confidence. After my very first appointment with RBD, I knew I had found ‘MY’ dentist. I knew they would always pay close attention to detail and cater to my specific needs. I enjoy each of my appointments. Even living 26 hours away, I will never see another dentist.’’

Erin S.

‘‘My teeth were wearing down and exposing dentin and causing a lot of pain. A ‘poor’ bite also contributed to the wearing down of my teeth. This lead to broken crowns due to them needed to be very thin to lift my bite. This was the inevitable choice, and better now than being forced to use dentures or implants in the future. I love my new smile! My wife does as well. Still hard to get used to have confidence in my smile and in my teeth but that is a problem that I can handle! Thank you!’’

Craig P.

‘‘I was embarrassed with my smile and now I smile a lot. I was able to get in right away even though I wasn’t an established patient. Everything was very professional yes completed in a caring environment. The staff is wonderful!’’
