Riley Parker , DMD
Dr. Riley Parker, born and raised in Hazen, North Dakota, wanted to become a dentist at a very young age. His pursuit of that goal took him from Arizona for dental school, to Oregon as part of his career beginnings and all the way back to his home here in North Dakota. Growing and expanding his knowledge and professional skills all along the way.
Dr. Parker's undergraduate education was completed at Dickinson State University. He then received a DMD from the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health, while simultaneously achieving a Certificate in Public Health through A.T. Still University. His training in public health is a core element in the compassionate way Dr. Parker practices.
His diverse career experiences and extensive continuing education affords him a wide range of treatment offerings. Patients can rely on his desire to provide the utmost highest quality care in a gentle and patient focused manner.
Dr. Parker enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife and four children, all of whom are the joy of his life. When not busy with patient care, he enjoys traveling, cooking, gardening and enjoying all that North Dakota outdoors has to offer.
