Austin Skyline Dental

Austin Skyline Dental is a health centered, relationship based dental practice. We have been guided by this philosophy for over 35 years overlooking the changing skyline of Austin. It is the philosophy of our practice to serve people as individuals, not just treat "the teeth." There is an effort to educate our patients of the cause and effect of dental and oral health. 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.
