When we moved from California to Gainesville more than 10 years ago, Dr. Richard Parent came highly recommended to us. We have been seeing him and his team ever since. We find them to be very professional, competent, friendly and caring. They treat us like family. At all times, with whatever procedure Dr. Parent might be doing, he is concerned with our welfare and whether we might be experiencing any pain or discomfort. His respect for time is another positive trait we greatly appreciate. We are very grateful to Dr. Parent and his great team for their timely, quality and highly-personalized service. We give them 5 stars!

I want to thank Dr Parent, Delores and Pam for my care this week. I have been in a wheelchair for the last 10 years. I use a scooter to my dental appointments and transfer to the exam chair with difficulty. After my cleaning I mentioned significant pain in a wisdom tooth. The team let me stay in the same exam chair and extracted the fractured tooth on the same visit. Pain gone.

I had a cracked tooth that was way more than an annoyance. I was taken care of the same day I called. The service of the entire group is outstanding and Dr. Parent’s expertise is unparalleled! I highly recommend Parent Dental Group.

Scott W. – 10/24/2019

I would like to thank Dr. Parent for squeezing me in his busy schedule and fixing my broken filling that lasted only 48 years. He came in early and did a wonderful job getting me taken care of. His assistant, Kellie, was extremely nice and professional. The entire staff is always very pleasant and it makes going to the dentist as good as it can possibly be. Thanks again to the whole crew at the Parent Dental Group.
