Dr. Conrad Parks, DDS
Dr. Conrad Parks loves being a pediatric dentist and he practices with compassion and with a total commitment to making your child’s dental experience positive. Dr. Parks is a kid at heart, he brings a smile and a joke wherever he goes and immediately makes kids feel welcome and comfortable.
Growing up in in Hastings Nebraska, Dr. Parks loved going to the dentist, thanks to his pediatric dentist who made visits fun and exciting. As he got older and started dental school he realized that not everyone had such a positive attitude towards the dentist, he wanted to change that, leading to his desire to pursue pediatric dentistry.
Dr. Parks was born and raised in central Nebraska. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from Creighton University in Omaha Nebraska and his Doctorate of Dental Science from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry. Following graduation Dr. Parks completed the 2 year Pediatric Dental Residency program at Children’s Hospital in Denver Colorado, a program consistently recognized as one of the top pediatric dental residency programs in the country.
Following residency, Dr. Parks took over the practice of Dr. H Edward Martin, a pediatric dentist who practiced for 40 years in the same location here in Overland Park. Along with his wife, Kelly, he has worked to transition the practice into Parks Children’s Dentistry, with the goal to eventually graduate your child from Parks Children’s Dentistry with no cavities and with the attitude that dental visits are fun and easy. One of the aspects that Dr. Parks loves about pediatric dentistry is getting to see each of his patients every 6 months, giving him the opportunity to watch them grow up and truly get to know his patients and their families.
Outside of the office Dr. Parks spends his time with his wife Kelly and their 3 young children. They enjoy exploring Kansas City and trips back home to the Cornhusker state!
Dr. Parks is a member of the Kansas Dental Association, American Dental Association and is a board certified Pediatric Dentist with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
