About Dr. Palmer

Dr. Palmer was born and raised through high school in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  He fortunately received a four-year football scholarship to Kansas University in Lawrence, Kansas where he received a B.S. in Education with a major in Physical Education.  He then played 3 years of professional football in the Canadian Football league under NFL Hall of Fame Coach Bud Grant.  He retired from football to enter dental school at the University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC).  After graduation with a D.D.S. degree, he did a one-year hospital internship at Montifiore Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.  During that year he married Shirley.  They celebrated their 30th anniversary in Oct. 2000.  They have no children (flunked dog raising - spoiled him too much).  Returned to Kansas City where he is now retired from a full time family dentistry practice.
