While Dr. Parks joined Dentistry for Children in January of 2021, he is certainly not new to pediatric dentistry!

He also served as an assistant Professor at Children’s Mercy Hospital Dental Clinic in Kansas City.
Dr. Parks and his wife Kelly have three children — Charlotte, Felicity and Nathan. As a family they enjoy traveling to the beach, golfing, movie nights and anything sports related. Dr. Parks is definitely a kid at heart and is always ready with a joke and welcoming smile.
