At Palmetto Dental Associates, we treat our patients like members of the family. Our close-knit community of professionals will warmly welcome you and ensure your comfort throughout your dental experience. Dr. Michael Cox has been caring for Little River families since 1987, and Dr. Emily Hortman has been enriching our practice with her feminine touch and dental expertise since 2005.
We are dedicated to improving the Little River community with eco-friendly, advanced dentistry. Our state-of-the-art facility features modern technology and green dentistry. Green dentistry means that we are paperless, digital, and we recycle materials whenever possible. We want the gorgeous smiles we create to have a world in which to shine.
Recently, Dr. Michael Cox and Dr. Emily Hortman volunteered alongside hundreds of other dental professionals to deliver more than $800,000 worth of dental care to 1,500 adults. Over the course of two days, adults 18 years old and older were treated on a first-come, first-serve basis with X-rays, dental cleanings, extractions, and other restorative services. Patients were also offered home-care tips and supplies like toothpaste, a toothbrush, and dental floss. Daily care is important for preserving oral health and preventing common issues like tooth decay and gum disease. We were glad to be a part of such an important community event.
Dr. Cox and Dr. Hortman specialize in sedation dentistry, implant dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. We are proud to extend our services to fearful and special needs patients. Our gentle, caring team and soothing environment will put you at ease and allow you and your family to get the quality care you deserve.
Our passion is dentistry, and that means we'd love to make you smile. Call Palmetto Dental Associates today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Michael Cox or Dr. Emily Hortman. We have provided residents of Little River and Myrtle Beach with comprehensive care for over 20 years.
