Our Doctors —
Dr. Brett M. Gardiner and Dr. Kevin J. Parks are not just dentists in Anchorage — they live, work, and recreate here, and deeply care about the people of Alaska.
Brett M. Gardiner, DDS
Dr. Gardiner moved to Alaska in 1994 after graduating from Creighton University's School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska. Originally planning on working here for 3-5 years, he soon realized that Alaska was the place he wanted to call home. Dr Gardiner lived in Wyoming and Utah. He attended Brigham Young University, served 2 years on a church mission in Guatemala, where he learned fluent Spanish, and then attended Creighton University’s School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska. With 25 years of experience in dentistry, he brings kindness and compassion to the care he gives his patients. When not at work, he relishes time spent with his family, which includes his wife, Kristy, and their three children; Dallin, Jared and Jenna. If not just enjoying being together, they will be found participating in church activities, the kids’ school activities or various sports, where Dr Gardiner will often be found coaching, something he loves. (He does leave the teaching of Jenna’s occasional dance class to the professionals, however.)
Kevin J. Parks, DDS
Dr. Kevin Parks has lived in Alaska for much of his life. Born on Elmendorf Airforce Base, and blessed to roam the foothills during his childhood, Alaska is in his blood.
He met his wife Tiffany during one of his brief absences from the state while they were attending Southern Virginia University. Kevin and Tiffany both played collegiate sports while attending SVU and enjoy an active lifestyle in the outdoors with their four kids.
Prior to attending SVU, Dr. Parks was a member of the University of Anchorage Alaska’s men’s basketball team (Fun fact, Dr. Howard and Dr. Parks were teammates from 97-98).
Dr. Parks has always enjoyed the dental profession as he was introduced to it by his father while he worked for several years in his father’s dental laboratory. Dr. Parks attended the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore. He enjoys volunteering abroad and bringing the benefits of dentistry to underserved populations.
“My goal is to provide the best dentistry possible in a personalized and caring manner. When you leave my care, I want you to feel better, and confident in the care you have received."
