Matt Palmer DDS

About Matt:

Matt grew up in nearby Cottonwood Heights and has no plans to leave the area anytime soon. Always a quick jaunt from the mountains, family, or the nearest Café Rio means Matt has everything he needs close at hand.

Matt knows going to the dentist isn’t most people’s idea of a good time and he’s working hard to change that. His office is filled with learning, laughs, and the occasional (or maybe not so occasional) balloon animal. He believes dental care can be fun and that even when it isn’t, your kiddos are capable of accomplishing difficult tasks, with a little support. If things get tense for a minute, Matt always has a joke handy. He gets to hang out with all of the best budding standup comics (kids) all day and learn all their best jokes. He also has four kids at home, and he treats all of his patients as if they were his own children.

When he’s not adding to his joke arsenal, making balloon animals, and taking care of little chompers, Matt likes playing the guitar and piano, singing, and recording music. He hopes to one day learn to golf, train for a triathlon, and maybe even start a rock band.

Parent Feedback

We've been going to Families First for nearly 10 years. We've seen many providers and loved them all. I love that I can get in quickly when my kids are hurt or sick. No doubt they have the best pediatricians in the valley.
