Meet the Team
Our office consists of two dental practices: Marshall Dental Associates and Marshall Denture Clinic. Dr. Parker established both practices in 1986 so that he could offer patients a wide range of dental services. While Dr. Parker specializes in dentures and dental implants, devoting all his time to this craft to deliver the best possible result, Dr. Reed and Dr. Lester handle all of the general dentistry, including family and cosmetic dentistry. The result is high-quality care and the expertise of three general dentists, all in one convenient location.
For your comfort and peace of mind, both practices feature the latest technology. In addition to revolutionary denture services not offered anywhere else in the state, our office features CAD/CAM technology for in-office restorations, as well as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, a soft-tissue laser, and the NobelGuide for implant placement. Your utmost comfort and satisfaction is our goal, and advanced technology helps us help you better.
