Better than My Dentist in Atlanta

When I moved to Beaufort a few years ago from Atlanta I worried that my dental care would be less modern or somehow not as good. However, the opposite was true. Dr. Jennifer Wallace and the team at Palmetto Smiles are modern, efficient and definitely friendlier. You will not be disappointed with the care you receive. It is better than my care in Atlanta ever was.
