Meet the Doctors
Dr. Michael Parrish:
When it comes to preserving, enhancing and beautifying our smiles, we all want the best. Personal, caring, and conscientious care, with the best results. It’s as simple as that.
Michael Parrish, D.D.S. attributes his love of dentistry to his exposure as a child. By following his father J. Gilbert Parrish, D.D.S. in the profession he was mentored in a gentle approach to dental care. This painless approach starts by providing valuable patient education. He listens so he can best understand your particular needs. His desire is to provide the most comfortable and relaxing experience possible, while providing the highest standard of personalized dental care using skilled training in the latest advances in dental technology.
After his undergraduate studies in biology at The University of Tennessee and The University of Memphis, he obtained his doctorate with honors from The University of Tennessee College of Dentistry. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Tennessee Dental Association, and The Memphis Dental Society.
Dr. Parrish is a family dentist in the truest sense of the word. Many of his adult patients were patients of his fathers’ and now they are patients who are bringing their own children into the practice. These multigenerational patients along with grandparents, aunts, uncles, coworkers and friends are a rewarding result of a caring dental practice.
When he’s away from the office you may find Dr. Parrish and his wife Becky, with their three children at one of their favorite pastimes… waterskiing, hunting, snow skiing or cheering for the kids on a ball field. His commitment to his faith and family are top priorities.
Dr. Justin Baldridge:
When integrity and the highest standard of dental care has been modeled before you all of your life, it’s easy to see why Dr. Baldridge would choose the same profession as his grandfather J. Gilbert Parrish DDS and uncle, Michael L. Parrish DDS. After completing his undergraduate studies in Biology at the University of Memphis and receiving his doctorate degree from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry, with honors in 2008, Dr. Baldridge joined his uncle, Michael Parrish, in practice where he continues to enjoy the blessings of a dental profession legacy with a family touch.
Their dental practice always strives to provide comprehensive care to patients, some of which include services from root canals to cosmetics and preventative treatments. In addition Dr. Baldridge also offers Invisalign® for patients interested in an alternative treatment to traditional braces. Patients comment most often about Dr. Baldridge’s “gentle touch” and how painless his procedures are. You may see his beautiful wife, Brittany, working at the office and enjoying a rare day away from their two busy little boys.
When Dr. Baldridge is away from the office he enjoys spending time with his wife, Brittany and their two sons. He enjoys fishing, hunting, serving in their church, and time at the lake and beach.
Dr. Baldridge and his wife enjoy the challenges and fulfillment of doing volunteer work at the Mobile Dental Clinic in the Memphis Area and going on mission trips out of the country.
