WHY SHE WAS NOMINATED:

Dr. Palmer is an unfailing professional who has surrounded herself with like-minded staff. In 2015 she started a “Veterans Dental Day” out of her office; at last year’s event she and her team provided $10,000 worth of free care to uninsured veterans.

SAGE ADVICE:

“Never stop learning. Things are constantly changing, and if you’re not always learning, you’ll quickly fall behind.”

SOMETHING PEOPLE DON’T KNOW:

“I worked as a registered dental assistant for my last two years of undergrad. I wanted to get into the field and make sure it was for me before I committed to dental school. I think it adds value to know what it’s like on both sides of the dental chair.”
