What Sets Us Apart

High-Tech Equipment 

Let's face it–no one wants to undergo dental treatment. But with the use of advanced technology and techniques, we can perform your procedure quickly, comfortably, and effectively. With high-tech equipment, we can perform procedures such as laser gum therapy, which is less invasive and results in faster healing.

A Focus on Safety

Safety is critical, whether you are visiting the dentist for a routine cleaning or undergoing treatment for gum disease with a periodontist. We maintain a clean and sterile environment at our facility in Jackson. We also offer the safest and most effective treatments, such as Piezosurgery® and laser therapy, for improved outcomes.

Emphasis on Education

The field of dentistry and periodontics is constantly changing. Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart remain committed to ongoing training and maintain memberships in several professional organizations. This commitment to education enables us to incorporate the best tools and techniques into our practice. In addition, our hygienists and assistants have received the training and certification that is required in these fields.

Comfort Is a Priority

We invite patients to discuss any concerns or apprehension they have about their treatment. We offer different types of sedation, including local and general anesthesia. Depending on the complexity of your procedure and anxiety level, we can recommend a sedation option that keeps you comfortable. Our staff will also walk you through each stage of treatment so you know what to expect.

Experience Serving the Community

Our practice, and several members of our team, have been proudly serving the community for more than three decades. Our periodontists and one of our hygienists have been with us for more than 30 years, and our receptionist has been with us for more than 20 years. Since the practice opened in 1983, we have been committed to providing the community with high-quality care.

Take the First Step Toward Improving Your Oral Health

Serious oral health problems such as missing teeth and gum disease can result in more extensive damage if they are left untreated. By contacting our periodontics practice today, you can take that critical first step–scheduling a consultation–toward improving your oral health. During your visit, we can diagnose any problems and recommend treatment to restore form, comfort, and function to your smile.

We serve patients from Clinton, Ridgeland, and surrounding areas at our Jackson practice. Call us at (601) 956-1230 or contact us online to schedule an appointment.

Featured Procedures

My experience with Dr. Parkes and staff was amazing. I am always nervous with doctors but the entire staff is so attentive and kind that my nervousness quickly disappeared. Dr. Parkes is very knowledgeable and I love the fact that he takes time to listen and answer questions. I am looking forward to conquering my present periodontal issues with him and his staff.

Payment Options

We accept all types of dental insurance, with the exception of PPO plans. We understand that many patients don't know what is covered by their dental insurance plan, which is why we run complimentary insurance evaluations to determine what services insurance will cover. Before you commit to treatment, we will make sure that you are aware of any out-of-pocket costs for the LANAP procedure, dental implant surgery, or any other oral surgery. We also accept CareCredit® financing.
