The first step toward becoming a dentist is earning a bachelor’s degree. From there, they must earn their dental doctorate from one of 67 accredited dental schools in America. This involves three years of hands-on and classroom training, and it’s only the beginning of their lifelong commitment to education. In fact, dentists are required to complete continuing education hours annually to keep their license (the exact number is determined by the state they practice in).
As for Dr. Palmer specifically, he earned his undergraduate degree from Saint Edwards University before attending Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Over a decade later, he’s helped countless patients achieve healthy, gorgeous smiles and has undergone additional training on everything from CEREC same-day technology to laser dentistry.
