Dr. Palmer is fantastic! She is very nice and clearly communicates each step of the dental process. I haven't had any major dental problems, but whenever I visit from a dental cleaning to a cavity its always easy and painless. Plus,binge watching episodes of TV on Netflix while at the dentist definitely helps :) I'd recommend Dr. Palmer to any friends looking for a new dentist in the area.

Dr. Palmer was very kind however, I felt she was a little too aggressive with her treatment. I came in for sensitivity and she cleaned up a couple cavities but then when I went back to level out my bite shebasically un-did all her work and I was left with very high sensitivity again so I had to go to my dentist back home to have her fix it. I hope others have better experiences because she was very nice and friendly!

I hadn't been to the dentist in years and Dr. Palmer was understanding, thorough and didn't chastise or guilt me for going so long between appointments. The offices were clean, bright and inviting and I was taken back as soon asI checked in. Love being able to watch Netflix or Hulu during my cleanings! Will definitely be back.

Respectfully informs me on what I could do to better take care of my teeth without making me feel to sad about my horrible dental hygiene. Also is fantastic at numbing my pain from both the filling of my cavity, andthe crippling depression I have. My only complaint is the she does not have NBA league pass so I was unable to watch the pacers vs cavs replay. Why did I take the time to write this strange review? Because, well, I am quite strange, or rather am so bored and unfulfilled that I wrote a rambling think piece about entirely nothing.

Sooooo I NEVER write reviews but Dr. Palmer and Sheila definetely deserve one! Saw them twice so far (most recent visit being today), and had some work done as well as a cleaning. Sienna has great bedside manner and is highlyprofessional. I felt totally relaxed and safe. Sheila is awesome as well. She makes you feel comfortable, and takes your mind off everything. Sienna is very good at her job, and does amazing work. If you live in SaMo and are searching for a dentist, I would highly recommend Dr. Palmer. And make sure Sheila is there! Awesome all around. Thanks so much!

Dr. Palmer is very professional and I'm happy with the quality of work she does. She explains everything clearly, and makes sure I'm well informed about my options before treatment. The office is a well lit comfortable environment. And if youlike to watch TV or Youtube during your cleaning, there's a nice entertainment system you can control with a remote. The receptionists at the front desk are friendly and were helpful with the many questions I had on the phone.

Moved to Santa Monica over five years ago and I've been going to the same dentist in San Diego for over a decade. Finally couldn't do the commute anymore and had to find a local dentist. My wife found Dr. Palmerand I couldn't be happier. Dr. Palmer and her staff are always welcoming and make you feel very comfortable. For a dentist office the vibe is somewhat relaxing and thats saying something. Definitely recommend her. And you can netflix while you're getting your teeth cleaned so what more could you ask for.

I had a lovely first experience with Dr. Palmer from start to finish. She is so friendly and approachable; she finds a way to be relatable to anyone she is taking care of. I went in for a simple cleaning andexam, but will be returning in a few weeks for a small follow-up procedure. I've been very fortunate to have few dental issues in my lifetime, but Dr. Palmer clearly explained everything to me, including advice about how to improve my dental well being moving forward. The facility was very comfortable and chic and the staff friendly and helpful as well. I would strongly recommend this practice! Looking forward coming back here year after year. Update: I went back a week later for my fillings appt. I was in and out of the office within an hour, and she worked on 3 fillings while I watched TV and listen to music the whole time. I am very thankful to have found Dr. Palmer and her team at Meridien Dental.

I recommend Dr. Palmer, especially if you need someone who has empathy and has a way of describing things positively. She is great at solutions for whatever issue you may have. My last dentist wouldn't point out scary things in away that made me understand, but Dr. Palmer was able to talk about everything in a way that helped without any drama and did an amazing job. More than just professional and capable, she brings a very human side to her practice that makes you feel you are really getting thoughtful care and time is being taken to do the right thing. So refreshing after being rather run over at my last few dentists. Dr. Palmer and her team gave me a very thorough exam and I teeth felt nice and clean after the cleaning. I even told my father and co workers about her and how nice the office was!

I have never had a problem with visiting the dentist before, but overall I had a pretty unpleasant experience at this office. I'd like to start off by saying that the staff is professional, Dr. Palmer is very nice and explainswhat you can expect during the procedures. The cleaning that I received lasted about a total of 15 minutes, compared to very thorough cleanings (lasting around 45-60 min) that I have always had elsewhere. My teeth barely felt cleaner after the cleaning. It seemed like the person who she asked to clean my teeth might have been an intern, or it was there first time ever doing a cleaning. I don't doubt that Dr. Palmer did a good job with the actual work that was done herself. With that being said, their tools stopped working multiple times while drilling in my mouth which was very concerning. It did not seem that Dr. Palmer felt very comfortable while drilling in my mouth, which definitely made me nervous. Lastly, the Dental Assistant was very rough with the suction tool to hold open my mouth. It was more uncomfortable than i had ever experienced. Overall, the team exudes inexperience and I don't feel comfortable returning.

She recommended I get fillings and I did but they were terribly done and now my insurance will not cover them again for two years so I have to pay out of pocket. Went to another dentist who told me Ididn't even need fillings in the first place. Also, she took x-rays but they were never explained or showed to me. When I asked about my wisdom teeth I never got an answer. The office is nice but that's all the good I can say.

Clearly 5+. Like another online reviews - no upsell, everything is what you really need. Unless you asked for the extra stuff, like teeth whitening. Dr.Palmer and Dr.Pham's team is all friendly and great. If you have insurance questions, ask Melissa. You will thank me later!

Friendly Front Desk, Friendly Dental Assistants, Friendly Doctors! I came in for cleaning, and I hate cleaning, but everyone made it a pleasant experience. I've been to many Dentists in LA but i have to say that Meridien Dental is thebest. They always make sure you're doing okay when their hands all are up in your mouth. And they also let you talk and when they do that, they take their hands out of my mouth, and believe it or not, not all dentist do that. The lobby is nice and clean, the equipment is nice, new, and high tech. If you want professional, friendly and funny dentist, choose Meridien Dental You won't regret it!

Can't express how incredible this office is! I lost a crown last night at 9:15pm. Dr. Palmer saw me at 8:00am today and I am good as new! I am so appreciative that they were able to see me so quickly.I also see Dr. Pham every 6 months for cleaning and I have to say those are some of the best cleaning I have ever gotten. He is extremely pleasant, gentle and thorough. Highly recommend this office - they are the best!

Haven't been here too long but the service is wonderful. Real down to earth people who are kind and professional, especially the front office. They go to great lengths to make sure I'm set, and would even look out for meoutside of the chair, like with my insurance benefits. If that isn't genuine service, then I really don't know what is.

I chipped my veneer and was searching for a dentist in Santa Monica. Unfortunately they were either closed or not available. I called this office and they were willing to see me despite their already busy schedule. and I can seewhy they are busy, they take so much better care of your needs then other offices. They accommodated to my needs and Dr. Palmer did a great job repairing the chip. The whole office was definitely welcoming and made the experience less stressful. Definitely will be coming back! A big "Thank you" to the team at Meridien Dental !
