A native of Alberta, Dr. Richard Palmer has been practicing dentistry in Calgary for the past 30 years. He received both his B.Sc. and D.D.S. degrees from the University of Alberta, as well as a degree in medicine from the University of Calgary. As a general dentist, Dr. Palmer focuses his treatment primarily on endodontic (root canal) treatments.
While putting himself through school, Dr. Palmer worked as a garbage man and as a ‘jug hound’ for a seismic company that worked in the high arctic. He has come a long way since then, and his patients are appreciative!
When Dr. Palmer is not busy serving his patients, he has a passion for cooking and finding new recipes, which he shares with his lovely and devoted wife and the greatest of his accomplishments – his five wonderful children.
Dr. Palmer is pleased to be a member of the Chinook Smiles team and looks forward to working with patients to help them achieve their dental health goals and make smiles better! Dr. Palmer looks forward to meeting you soon!
