Dr. Richard Palmer is a native of Alberta who has been practicing dentistry in Calgary for the past 20 years. He received both B.Sc. and D.D.S. degrees from the University of Alberta and also received a degree in medicine from the University of Calgary. As a general dentist he focuses his treatment to primarily 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 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.
He also received the typing award in grade 10 and was a founding member of the Losers Club in grade 11, which at one time boasted twelve members.
