Meet the


Our family of doctors includes pediatric dentists Dr. Kevin Raines and Dr. Rob Nieders, orthodontist Dr. Heather Hopkins, and family dentist Dr. Jamie Cross Gomez. Each doctor has undergone extensive training, allowing us to provide exceptional dental care in a way that’s comfortable and efficient.

As pediatric dentists, after finishing dental school, Dr. Raines and Dr. Nieders completed their residencies in pediatric dentistry, giving them an unparalleled understanding of children’s unique oral health and developmental needs. Dr. Hopkins, our Lexington, SC orthodontist, attended specialty training in orthodontics to learn the intricacies of straightening teeth and aligning bites with appliances, such as braces and Invisalign. Dr. Gomez, our family dentist extraordinaire, has a wide breadth of experience that covers a full range of preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

Each of our dental specialists embraces modern technology and stays on top of the latest techniques and advances. This way, patients spend less time in the doctor’s chair and more time doing the things they love.

Just finished my Invisalign treatment with Dr. Hopkins at Palmetto Smiles and could not be happier with the result. Dr. Hopkins is very thorough and goes the extra mile to ensure you have every question answered and are on the same page with your plan. Highly recommend and will refer family and friends!

Chris B.

For those in the Columbia area looking for an orthodontist, I would highly recommend Dr. Hopkins! Our 9yr old and 15yr old absolutely love her. Dr. Hopkins is very professional and has been a blessing to our two boys!

This has been our dental practice since my oldest was 2 and she is 14!! They are very friendly and all of the staff are that way!! They go out of our way to help us!! I have one that is recently out of braces and in retainer's, so it's a one stop shop, lol!! They are amazing and I would recommend them all to everyone!!

Amanda S.

My 4 year old daughter sees Dr. Neiders and he is simply amazing. She loves how funny he is and I love how he explains everything so well to her. He makes the experience fun for kids and makes them comfortable so they aren't scared of going to the dentist. His entire staff is great and I highly recommend them!

David D.

Absolute best family dentists AND orthodontist in Lexington! Both our boys started their care here and I have never once had to beg them or keep dental appointments a secret. They have NO fear of the dentist! As a parent, I can't begin to explain how cool that is. Every member of the team, from the time you check in till you walk out the door, they make you feel like family.

Greg S.

My visit was AWESOME from the time I walked in until the time I walked out. I was treated as family by all of the staff. The treatment was exactly what I could have ever wanted. They knew what I needed and wanted before I even had a chance to them.
