C. Steve Parker, DDS
Dr. Parker was raised in Wichita Falls, Texas and received a bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Texas at Austin. He received his dental degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston in early 1978. He then moved back to Austin as quickly as he could, with Kris his wife of five months. Kris, a model wife and mom, still serves as Dr. Parker’s hygienist part of the weekly schedule.
He has trained extensively through more than 1,000 hours of continuing education in respected institutions including the Pankey Institute, the Center for Professional Development and throughout the University of Texas Health Science Centers. He is a member in good standing of the American Dental Association, the Texas Dental Association, the Capital Area Dental Society and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
He and Kris are blessed with three wonderful children: Brad, Jeff and Leigh Ann. These three blessings are their collective pride and joy. Dr. Parker enjoys playing senior men’s baseball, is an avid landscaper, gardener, stonemason and so far has run 35 marathons, including Pike’s Peak. For the past ten years he has developed a passion for saltwater kayak fishing. To help raise donations to fight Multiple Sclerosis, and to see if he could, Dr. Parker has ridden his bicycle in the MS-150 from Houston to Austin in 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Kris has been practicing alongside her husband, Dr. Parker, just over 35 years. As a dental hygienist she loves keeping everyone’s smile healthy and bright. Our patients have become wonderful friends. Their three children are all raised so she has more time for her favorite activities. These include walking, serving as a Master Gardener, quilting and most especially spending time with family and friends. She cannot wait for the next phase of her life….grandkids!
Our office manager, Tricia, began her dental career in 1993 and started working with Dr. Parker in 1994. She truly enjoys helping patients with their dental needs and greatly values the friendships she has made along the way. Tricia spends her time away from the office with her husband and two young daughters, Audrey and Aislyn. They all enjoy the outdoors – fishing, swimming, gardening and walking.
Michelle has enjoyed working alongside Dr. Parker since 2007. She became a Dental Assistant in 2001 and loves her job! She is married to James and has three children, Niki, Christopher and Briana. Her joys are her two grandchildren, Benjamin and Simora. Michelle loves spending time with her family, traveling, swimming and camping.
