About Us


Dr. Palmer


Dr. Gretchen Palmer was born in Rochester, NY.  She grew up in Greece, NY and attended Greece Arcadia High School.  She attended Rochester Institute of Technology where she received a bachelors degree in Biology.  She then attended Case Western Reserve University where she received her DDS degree in 2001. After receiving her degree she completed a general practice residency (GPR) at Strong Memorial Hospital.  Dr. Palmer joined the faculty practice at the University of Rochester where she saw patients with complex medical needs and supervised residents.  

In 2006 Dr. Palmer purchased the practice from Dr. Howard Rockoff. She has continued to grow the practice and it evolved into Crossbridge Dental, PC.  In 2010 we moved into our new suite and continued to grow the practice from a 2 operatory/ 3 employee practice to the 5 operatory/6 employee practice we currently have now.

Dr. Palmer loves dentistry (she knew she wanted to be a dentist since she got her first filling when she was 7 years old).  Dr. Palmer is always taking continuing education and keeping up with the latest dental technology.  She is an active member of the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Association, and the Seventh Distric Dental Association.  She is also a member of the Seattle Study Club of Rochester.

Dr. Palmer is married to her husband Matt (a Webster native) and has a daughter, Avery. When she isn't fixing teeth or driving Avery around to all her extracirricular activites she loves to travel and paint.
