Exceptional Care, Personalized…

"I listen to the patients concerns and goals for their oral care and work towards achieving the best smile possible. I educate patients on home care, dental office procedures and best dental products for their individual needs.

I currently live in Jackson, TN where my husband is pastor of Calvary Baptist Church. I am fortunate to have been raised in the home of a dentist (Dr. Palmore) that loves his profession and has passed on this excitement about dentistry to me. Although I live in Jackson, I have maintained my Alabama Dental Hygiene License and enjoy very frequent visits in which I love to include a few days of clinical treatment in The Dental Health Center."
