Our Doctors —
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. Parks grew up in Anchorage, AK where he attended the University Of Anchorage Alaska and played on the men's basketball team during the 1997-1998 season. He then attended and graduated from Southern Virginia University where he met his wife Tiffany and began their current family of six, Jared, Anna, Audrey, and Natalie. Upon graduating from the University of Maryland Dental School, Dr. Parks and his family drove across the continent to Anchorage, AK in six days. He enjoys spending time with his family in the outdoors, coaching his children's recreation teams, spending time together on the Kenai Peninsula, and planning their next grand adventure. During his dental education, Dr. Parks was involved with Mission of Mercy, providing dental care to the underserved populations of the Appalachia. In addition he traveled to Hondo Valle to provide dental care to the rural communities of the Dominican Republic. While studying at the University of Maryland he received accolades from the University in Implant Studies, from the Northeast Periodontal Chapter for excellence in clinical and didactic application, and a Dean's Award for his volunteer work in the local community. After working in several offices, Dr. Parks has found a home with the team at Alaska Dental Care and feels their mission statement compliments his own approach to providing dental services. "My goal is to provide the best oral health care utilizing a gentle and conservative approach."
