Enjoy a Personalized Dental Care Experience

Our goal is to make every person who visits our office feel like they are our only patient for the day. We put you first in every aspect of your care, from answering your questions to creating personalized treatment plans. Basically, we treat you the way we want to be treated.

Here are the ways we make your dental experience top-notch:

  • Patient Education – We want you to be fully informed about your dental care options, so you can make the best decision for you.
  • Thorough Treatment – You’re never rushed here. We won’t shuffle you in and out like some big practices do. If you need extra time, you can schedule a longer appointment if you’d like. Just let our team know.
  • Anxiety-Free Visits – You can relax with sedation if you are nervous. Pillows and blankets are also available.
  • Preventive Services – Your dentist goes the extra mile with preventive care to ensure you enjoy long-term oral health. We have saliva testing, periodontal checkups, fluoride and dental sealants for all ages, and more.

Our Mission

Our guiding principle at River Oaks Dental Care is to treat each patient as we want to be treated. The focus is to offer the highest quality and most comprehensive dental care possible in a patient-centered environment. A positive patient experience is important to us, and we recognize each person has different needs and goals with their dental care. Treatment needs and recommendations are tailored for each patient and are based on many factors. Prevention is also a chief focus at our office. Diagnosing and treating problems in the early stages allows treatment to be less invasive and less costly. Our office utilizes technology aids to help detect potential problems early. As new technologies emerge and are proven effective, we attempt to integrate them into our office to enhance our patients’ treatment experiences and outcomes. All these efforts are our attempt to deliver the best possible dental care to our patients, which they deserve.

We Invest in Technology to Benefit Our Patients

Technology has helped us improve many aspects of your family’s care:

  • Dr. Parker uses digital X-rays and Spectra cavity detectors to make quick and precise diagnoses.
  • We can use saliva testing to identify gum disease and other issues before signs become visible to the naked eye.
  • Our friendly staff communicates with you using text and email, so you never miss an appointment reminder or other notification.
  • When you call us after hours, we can access your patient information and schedule appointments directly by phone.
