Peter H. Pham, DDS

Dr. Pham and his family came to the United States as refugees from Vietnam after the Vietnam War. The family moved to northern California from Michigan when Dr. Pham was a child of one. English was a second language for him as he grew up in the Bay Area. This didn’t stop him, however, as he went on to undergraduate school at UC Davis where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with emphasis in Physiology. From there, Dr. Pham attended dental school at UCLA, where he graduated with his D.D.S. degree in 2005. Since then, Dr. Pham has continued to advance his dental education with additional training courses, such as the UCLA Advanced Implant Course.

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. Palmer and 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.

Dr. Palmer is great! She gives you the information you need to know and she has a great bedside manner. I'm a person who hates the dentist and I'm pretty sensitive to mouth pain, but she makes me feel calm and I appreciate that

Great visit. The office is nicely decorated. Staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Palmer was knowledgeable, gentle and explained my dental needs. There was a nice view from the dental chair which helped me relax as I am sometimes anxious at the dental office.

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 and exam, 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.
