Five-Star Reviews
‘‘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’’


‘‘My veneers were 30+ years old and I needed an upgrade not only for cosmetic reasons but for my health. No one enjoys getting older-but at age 60 I’m feeling better, look better and have more confidence than ever thanks to my smile. Dr. Palmer and his staff are professional and care deeply about my health and appearance’’

‘‘My bite was off, and 8 years of orthodontic treatments did not provide the results I wanted. Likewise, my enamel was discolored and I had a lot of small spaces between my teeth. I had seen what Dr.Palmer had done for other patients and after a lot of careful consideration; I decided to make the change. For many years, I was unhappy with my teeth. Although I took care of them, there were several things I wanted to change. The smile transformation performed by Dr.Palmer and his staff has improved my physical self-image dramatically. Now, I love to smile in photos and show people my teeth. It has renewed my confidence in my physical appearance in ways that nothing else could. This has been one of the best decisions I’ve made.’’
